Re: Gesture control

As I learned when this question was asked over at SpeakEV, there's a menu setting where you can turn it off.

System Settings > Screen > Hand Gesture

Re: 1st edition vs. current tiers

I'm not aware of any hardware changes made after the 1st Edition. All the problems have been related to software as far as I know. My 1st Edition has no hardware issues, and since its 2.1 software update it now has no software issues either. I'm very happy with the car.

Re: Hello & question re the Myenergi Zappi 2 charger 7kW

...after the Eddi has done its job on heating our domestic hot water cylinder. I don't yet have an Eddi, or for that matter a hot water cylinder. A heating engineer has suggested putting a cylinder on the input to my combi boiler. That way I can heat water with excess solar when we have some, so wh...

Re: Hello & question re the Myenergi Zappi 2 charger 7kW

Hi and welcome. I have a Zappi 2 and I'm very happy with it. To be frank, though, I hardly use it, I got a payment card with £500 credit on it from VW with my car, and I'm trying to use the credit up before it expires after 12 months, so I'm charging the car mostly at my local public chargepoint. So...

Re: Hello there

Hi Wayne and welcome. I believe that in England alloys don't come as standard even on the more expensive trims, and they're an expensive option. I don't know about voice control of the heating system. On my 1st Edition (dual zone climate) I can control it by voice, but the be honest I find the voice...

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

Ah. I hope I haven't given misleading info in my previous post. Simonrg, I gather your problem is with switching on Air Condition Now, on the car's infotainment screen, when leaving the car. I've never tried doing that. I use the We Connect ID app on my (Android) phone, and tap the Air Conditioning ...

Re: Does anyone use a mobile device as a vehicle key?

Since as far as I know mobile phones are not generally fitted with the UWB transceiver used by the ID.3 and its key to communicate, I would assume that this 'mobile key' function must bypass this technology. The UWB radio signals enable the ID.3 to defeat high-tech thieves who use 'key repeaters' to...
