    ^^^ Fair advice, I'd say.

    I understand that not every problem can be dianosed immediately, but if you bought the car from them with a warranty to guarantee that it will work as prescribed, it's their responsibility to get a clue.

    Have they offered any suggestion with regard to how they feel you should proceed?

    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    I had a similar issue on my S3 when I had to have a new RNSE unit fitted after getting a DVD stuck (luckily done under warranty). At first they could not sort it out either, but after 3 hours of waiting they managed to put it back to normal.

    As bez said take it back and tell them to get it sorted.

    Hello jrloco,

    I wonder can you find out what the actual software version is, if it is a dealer upload or can be set by the owner under a special menu on the sat nav (perhaps?). If it is a dealer specific uploaded version can it be obtained somewhere?

    I am very keen to turn of my microphones in the car as I have a bit of a thing against Big Brother and no thats not the one you sit in and watch on your telly whilst eating some of this yellow stuff...

    Any help you can get would be gratefully received.

    Cheers
