Re: 2016 Cactus Multimedia unit issue

Interestingly, had a similar problem on our 2016 Cactus. The screen went through a cycling of the Citroen logo screen. Stopped the engine for 5 minutes or so and everything seemed OK when I restarted the engine. Fingers crossed that this was a one-off glitch. I often wonder whether a battery disconn...

Re: SATNAV UPDATE

If your car is under 5 years old you can update the maps yourself for free! Go to https://www.citroen.co.uk/owner-service ... ion-system. Pop in your VIN and follow the instructions

Re: Heater not working

We had a similar problem. Typically on a freezing cold day, no matter how we fiddled with the temperature control, fan speed, turning off the A/C etc we were still freezing in the car. The cure? Switch off the ignition for at least 30 minutes. Everything fine since. Cause? Software issue? Is it wort...

Re: Paint code

I'm guessing this a similar sticker. I've found this on the internet. I would freely admit that trying to work out the paint code isn't straight forward but in the attached picture the code is circled in red. Once you've established the code do a Google search for the colour and hopefully that will ...

Re: GPS UPDATE

Enter here the VIN code of your Cactus and I will get a link to download both new maps and new software for your touch screen if both are available: https://www.citroen.co.uk/owner-services/mycitroen-app-map-updates/update-my-navigation-system I'm afraid this will only work if your car is eligible ...

Re: GPS UPDATE

For those in a similar situation, I believe Citroen will only provide free map updates for 5 years after registration. After that you have to pay for it. From what I can find the earliest date free updates were offered was from 1/7/2015. So it looks as though early cars will have or will be rapidly ...

Re: GPS UPDATE

If you are able to download the Peugeot map updates you are half way there! All you need is a Java app which will provide you with an unlock code using your VIN and an .inf file data contained in your download. You can look for the Java app it's called generator.jar with Google, but if you get stuck...

Re: How to update maps

I'm wondering if you would be better to look for answers on a dedicated Citroen C4 forum like http://c4owners.org/

The C4 Cactus is an entirely different beast in as much a 2016 model wouldn't have connectNav but uses the SMEG system.
