    Just taken delivery of a new T6 Highline Kombi. Ordered the Carista to enable me to activate the large digital mph speed display. Once I've sorted that, what else is a must do?

    Cheers.

    The system is simple. You will probably work down the list and try everything and restore the stuff you don't like. Do stuff one at a time so that if you don't like it's effect you know what to restore.

    I didn't activate 'Beep on Lock' because I assumed it would sound like a 1990's car alarm that hoots every time you lock the car, or am I wrong?

    Great...thanks for that.

    What's the "tear drop" wipe?

    It's when you pull your washers to clean the screen, it wipes several times, then pauses for 1 final sweep to catch any last drips or 'tear drops'
    Very handy feature that seems to be standard on everything else!

    I think you can stop the windows opening by holding the remote? If you can, switch it off, just gone outside to find the windows open and it peeing down with rain after carrying in the shopping :mad:

    Mine wasn't a beep from the horn. It was just a simple a beep possibly from the alarm. It was nice to know the van had locked but didn't wanted to upset neighbours so turned it off.

    The windows should only open when you hold the unlock button down, in which case there's actually no reason to hold it down is there?

    It was on the table and some fool decided to put a bag of shopping on the keys. It’s only when I heard ‘ why have you left your van windows open?’ I wriggled off the settee where I was shouting at England’s performance to find it raining too.

    I tried most of them and ended up turning all of them off other than digital MPH speedo and needle sweep. Even the tear wipe function, which works perfectly well on all the cars I've had, got on my nerves as it often left a smeary mark and drips on what had been a perfectly clean windscreen 5 secs earlier.

    Yep it’s just like that. So annoying it lasted 20 minutes on mine, then coded it back out.

    The option to disable drls when indicating is useful, but needle sweep is definitely the best option :)
