@wdimagineer: Mine is set to KOMBI_HIGH. F07, I think there's a difference between the full black display on the F10 and F01/F07. Assuming F10 = mid, F01/F07 = high.

@dreamcar, not sure about that, I think SLI was an ECE ONLY option until the F30's showed up.

Btw, my car doesnot have a KAFAS2 module. just KAFAS

Hey guys... Just RTFM'd and saw that there is supposed to be a list view of all the legs (miles to drive each leg, perhaps the road name too) along a Nav route. However I have never seen this in my Nav system. I haven't read the whole thread yet but wondering if this is an unlockable feature. My apologies if this has been covered.

Has anyone figured out how to turn off the three 'position' amber corner lights on the F10? I saw a thread out on another website for the E90's but can't find any of the parameters on my FRM cafd.

I think I got the global update done last week, all I got from dealer was the car was coded, but no specifics... the only tool I have is E-Sys, I'll be digging around a little bit later today, I'll try to figure out what was updated...

Off topic.... I was looking through the spreadsheet and saw the part about turning on projected fuel stops, curious thing is that my car has always had that turned on...

I haven't tried it yet but whoever wanted it can try it.
In what modul is :
3000 SM_GLOBAL, 06 ; SA_MEMORY_ZEIT
status of the heated seats ?

Mjgood,
Thanks !

So these are after you update and you haven't done any changes to them right?

Looks like the number of CAF files have decreased.

SLI status update

So I had a chance to run the car a good distance on many different types of roadways during my commute this morning. All the display ever showed was the white rectangle with the three dashes. At least it is consistent.

On the bright side I can see the following scenario: "Officer, you clocked me doing 260kmh and you say the limit on this road is 50? Wow, I didn’t realize I was doing anything wrong as my speed limit display must have been malfunctioning since it displayed no speed limit. Understandably you can see why I took that to mean there is no speed limit on this road. Considering the unfortunate circumstances and obvious catastrophic failure of a technological feature that one heavily depends on, would you issue me a warning rather than throwing me in jail?”

Yes.

I have done the following:
1) added 8TH to VO (I checked the FA and it is now there);
2) HU_CIC, 3001 EXBOX, SPEEDLIMIT_INFO = aktiv
3) KOMBI, 3003 FZG_Ausstattung, SPEED_LIMIT = aktiv
4) KAFAS, 3010 SLI_CODING, SLI_ON_OFF = SLI_ON
5) KAFAS, 3010 SLI_CODING, CODE_ELECTRIC_HORIZON = nicht_aktiv
6) Turned on Speed Limit Info in the display.

Oops, I actually did that, just forgot to put it in the list. Sorry.

Revised:

1) added 8TH to VO (I checked the FA and it is now there);
2) HU_CIC, 3001 EXBOX, SPEEDLIMIT_INFO = aktiv
3) KOMBI, 3000 Anzeige_Konfiguration, SPEED LIMIT GENERATION = sli_gen2
4) KOMBI, 3003 FZG_Ausstattung, SPEED_LIMIT = aktiv
5) KAFAS, 3010 SLI_CODING, SLI_ON_OFF = SLI_ON
6) KAFAS, 3010 SLI_CODING, CODE_ELECTRIC_HORIZON = nicht_aktiv
7) Turned on Speed Limit Info in the display.

Damn that is confusing and why the heck that icon stays on ? for us CEH determines whether the icon stays on or off.

Ok can you also let me know these


in SLI_CODING what are the values for

Country_CODE_DISPLAY?
UNIT_DISPLAY

EDIT: Do you have DriverAssistence package? i dont see it in your Signature

Just a data point.

My 2012 F07 has only one button inside and it opens the large hatch. I have four buttons on the FOB and a short press on the alarm button opens the small hatch.

FWIW
