What's wrong with using the car's inbuilt handsfree phone system.
What about maps?
Use the car's nav system.

Re: What do you do when you can't find a decent phone mount? Put one together yourself...

Congratulations on your ingenuity, but are you sure that is safe? It obscures your view of the road rather a lot. I think in the UK that would not be seen as legal. That would be illegal in my country. Too much of the view is obstructed I sit higher than in this view so there's not much of an obstr...

Re: Speedometer display failing to remain.

Re: Software Update

I would argue dealer's statement! I'm talking about software running on multimedia unit, not about any other pieces of software on the car. While I was owning the 2018 C-HR, the upgrade I was doing was changing the software, not only the maps. A major change brought was 3D like interface on radio i...

Re: Software Update

I was told by my dealer that the map update is just a map update and nothing more, any software updates that are needed can only be done by the dealer. Updating the maps twice a year is a customer choice.

Re: battery replacement under warranty

We need a survey showing battery faults against year of manufacture. So many owners having flat batteries.
