Re: Sat nav, letters missing

The letters were not greyed out, they were missing completely. What do you mean by innapropriate language/keyboard? I’ve been using this satnav for one year without any problems.

Re: Sat nav, letters missing

I would take a greyed out letters to indicate that they are not available for the current selection. Missing letters would make me think that the language/keyboard selection was not appropriate. The letters were not greyed out, they were missing completely. What do you mean by innapropriate languag...

Bought a 66 plate Grey Blue HDi two days ago. This morning found that the airbumps on the passenger side have been vandalised. Big gouge all the way down. Can any one point me in the direction of replacements?
Currently there are some pre-owned ones on ebay uk
