I'm thinking about buying some extra cameras for this reason, and also to make reversing the trailer easier. (Very narrow gate between brick pillars)


When the car has a rear camera, it is of course "on", when reversing...

But presumably when towing all you see in reverse is the bloody trailer. :lol:

It's not quite as bad as the second comment, but pretty close.

I'm thinking of cameras on the trailer's mudgards so that I can see if they're going to clear the gate posts.

However, when conditions are good (i.e. sun isn't obscuring the reversing camera) reversing the trailer via the reversing camera is quite good. (Much easier than only using the mirrors)

I'm thinking also of making a strap-on mount for the kayak's flag, so that I can use it to indicate the centre of the kayak for reversing purposes.

AndyInOz, I'm sure you can turn the camera on whilst driving. Someone here will remember the button pressing sequence but I have certainly done it. It's a bit distracting though.

Select "Camera setting"

As far as I remember, yes. I had though some problems to press the buttons correctly to get this service menu on the screen.

When I was buying my phev I did check few of these and in all of them hatch on charge ports did rub against body when opened. It needs just two 6mm washers under the hinge and this is fixed.

Hello, I'm unsure this the right thread for this but here it goes: anyone tried evtech box on this forum? It allegedly tunes the accelerator so to avoid the ICE starting, converting eco mode in ev mode (for pre MY17).
Has anyone know of any mods that can be done to the way the hybrid system works?
