Exactly the same problem! In the end, I just did it myself. BUT it has taken 24 hours to initialise properly and for some reason, it still put the car units back to km/H even though I have set mp/H at least 4 times now...

Thank you both for quick replies. Like ddnees I have now done it myself. One other question - I have been trying to get the nearside mirror to dip when in reverse but so far failed! Do you know if this is possible on the GT Line S model?

Ahhh I didn't know this was a feature which was available... mine have not dipped.

Mmmm car has 360 parking camera and if you really needed to I guess you could just indicate and see the kerb from your dash camera when parking. Just a thought.

Surely the 360 camera view on the main screen is just better all round for manoeuvring?

Would be nice to have an option to see both wing mirror cameras without using the indicators... feature request.
I have mine angled down so I can see low enough for reversing. Added bonus it means you do not get blinded by car lights behind. (y)

Its funny how we all do the same thing - driving - but we all have very different ways to approach it.

Mirror settings for example - I have mine set so wide that i cant see the sides of the car, the idea being that it eliminates the majority of the over the shoulder blind spot.

I think we all choose a setup that suits where we use the car the most, i spent most of my time on the motorway so my setup reflects that.

Same here.
But as a biker & despite having the blind spot warning. I still do life savers (y)
