    GEN F hsv Questions thread

    Ok instead of making a ton of threads with different questions ill create a main thread where i and others can ask in this thread .
    So ill start by asking how can I make the main screen brighter ? I've noticed mine is too dark in the afternoon to night time I've pushed up the switch to make the dash gauges brighter and noticed it increases the main screen too but it doesn't make it brighter to where I would like . Anyone know if there's another way ? I've looked in settings doesn't seem to be any other options.? Mine is an r8 sv . 2014

    It dims because the sensor thinks it is night time, you may notice when driving in the afternoon if you go through a shady area it will go dim, then when you go back into good light it will turn up brighter again.

    This is so when you are driving at night it isn't too bright and distracting.

    Looking for colder IAT's? we have achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    Your horn beeps when you close the door? Or when you double lock it?

    Do you still have a key, maybe the second key inside the car? I'll work on all doors being closed and lights are off
    or on auto! if that is all good you may have a door sensor out.

    You can disable that in the Settings menu.

    Same as the above. It is all in the configurable settings under the "CAR" section IIRC.

    Some of the wording is not the best, if you want no notifications at all (car horn) just disable the lot.
    I've just got mine to notify, via beep, if the remote is left in the car when shutting the door.

    Turned the rest off

    Works fine for me, although I use other apps and just stream over bluetooth.

    Pandora gets too repetitive over time once it "learns", just keeps playing the same shit.
