^ Someone a while back told me about the "chin" method, similar to the head method but you hold the fob underneath your chin and that seems to work as well (and is a tad more subtle). For my above post, though, I didn't need to try it!
I'm sure this is old news to those who live above the "Southern US", but I saw today for the first time the little yellow snowflake icon next to the temp on the display indicating it was cold enough for snow/ice outside. And yes, this is the first morning the temps have dropped below 40F here in TX since I've owned it.
Just when I thought we have discovered all the “Easter Eggs” my F-Pace protected me from running out of fuel while trying to warm it up this morning:
Normally I treat 1/4 full as empty so as not to suck up crap from the bottom of the tank, but it was just too cold to go fill up last night or earlier this morning ...but with only 5% fuel left in the tank the Remote Climate wouldn’t let me pre-start it too go and get fuel when it warmed up to -13C (Actually it was more of a pain as there would have been plenty of fuel for its predetermined idle time if forgotten I’m sure...)
Under the “Driver Assistance” menu you can toggle the “Traffic Sign Recognition” on and off.
What I did not know is that while driving at night and on designated roadways, you while get a “night” display with a different speed posting versus its “daytime” display. Simply amazed!
My wife's MKX has had that feature since she got the car in 2011, along with remote start, voice text messaging, individual settings, based on which key fob is used, for radio station preference, A/C and heat settings, seating positions, mirrors and even which of 7 colors you'd prefer to have for mood lighting. I think there's more but we never really dug way down into the menus any more than that. When Ford sold Jag, I guess none of the "techies" went along with the deal.
At my dealer yesterday going over some ICTP issues and the Master Tech quickly looked at my vehicle. He tried to get into the sub menu of my interface, but my system wouldn’t allow access, so I’m not entirely sure what’s there.... it’s called the Engineering Screens. To access it press and hold to the left of the Hour symbol on the digital clock at the top of your display screen for about 10 seconds... let me know what’s there, and enter at your own risk.
