Re: Fast charging

Were you able to use the 'magic' override, (gear selector right, handbrake & footbrake on, start button) described on the 'sticky' pages?

Re: Steamed Up (The car AND ME!)

Having just read the technical highlights document (linked elsewhere on this site), it appears that charging the battery from the engine is similar to using the fast chargers found (in the UK) at motorway services, in that it won't recharge beyond 86%. I can think of reasons to justify this behaviou...

Re: SD card question - am I missing something

I can't speak for SD cards, but playing music from a USB stick offers the same facilities as a CD and 'remembers' where you were if you switch to other media and then come back to it.

Re: Wifi connection for a new car and the app

I've never had an iPhone [shudder] , but on an Android (and I bet Apple products are similar), the phone can give you a list of all the WiFi networks within range. In a city, this may be quite a long list! The Mitsi one is called (SSID if you like to get technical) something like REMOTE nnxxxx , whe...

If you have the GX4h (2016) with the sunroof there's no room for the sunglasses holder. I think there is one on the GX3 (without the sunroof). I don't know what the position was on the older model, but I wouldn't be surprised to find it's the same.

Re: Miles displayed after full charge

I think it's been established that the computers adjust the estimated range to reflect recent trips and hence driving style (which you can do something to alter) and local terrain (which you can't). If you live somewhere relatively flat, you'll get a longer effective range than if you go up and down...

Re: Swap lateral view on screen, to target higway toll box?

Salut et bienvenu, PH. Isn't it easier just to open the driver's window and (if necessary) lean out? But I can't see why Mitsu couldn't program what you want as an alternate view, if there were real demand for it,.

Re: Servicing

Heated steering wheel

The recent cold spell in the UK has let me try out the heated steering wheel. My first impression is that the heat is mostly experienced at the "20 past 8" position rather than the "10 to 2" recommended in the Highway Code. Is it just me, or am I holding it wrong?
