    Thanks a lot for your quick replies..
    finally i know AUX can be used and there's a port backside.. but 1 question..
    once the aux cable is fitted at the back and the system is fixed back in..he cable goes along with it at the back..
    where will be the outlet for the aux wire so that something can be plugged in..

    Cable is long enough that it can be stored in front car glove box. or you can just hang it and place it around gear rod. That way it will be easier for you to use it in your phone if you want to make use of speaker to make and receive calls. Or can easily plug in to mp3 player which can be operated by you easily.

  5. another small finding (may not be of use though).

    In E-Pack, one (another) way of switching ac/ compressor ON:
    Suppose you have pressed the compressor button and switched it off (means, only blower is ON):
    if you rotate the temp knob till 17 deg C or lower, then it infact displays LO and then get the compressor running at that point.

    @Punter..
    even if he compressor if turned on and you move the knob o bring down the temp below 16..it switches to LO mode with maximum fan speed.. dat mode is just there for instant maximum cooling.. the auto climate control turns off there.. that works like a manual mode

    Not sure if this is already posted or not. I remember we had a discussion on the google group mailing list regarding the FE displayed on MID. There was some discussion that when the car is idling the Ic don't show the FE(as the car is not moving). Today I verified that even though the Ic don't show the FE, the FE's shown in the trip meters do changes(towards lower value) while the car is idling.
  9. You are right; And the way it is,...it is the right way of display too..
    Even if it is idle, it does add up to the average FE for the trip, where as instantaneous FE doesnt make sense in that period of idling.

    Apart from that:
    While deceleration/ coasting the instantaneous FE shoots up (as it should be). And I have noticed, the max value it goes up to...is "50".

    Yeah. FE while idling can be termed as 0 kmpl.

    Also, the Instant FE range is 4 kmpl to 50 kmpl i.e. min 4 kmpl & max 50 kmpl. Am sure this is only for Instant FE "display only" as internally it calculates even lower FE (including 0 while idling) & hence the trip meter considers 0 FE or FE lower than 4 kmpl also. Thats why Linea/Punto trip meter MID FE is very close to accurate with around 4-5% difference (i.e. when MID shows 15 kmpl, manual tank-ful method returns with 14-2-14.3 kmpl)
