2010 HSE LUX. Looks amazing. Drives well. But alas, a few issue and I've only had it for a few hours:

1) The Nav volume increases with music volume no matter how many times I turn it down
2) Language goes back to UK english
3) Hold unlock down on remote, windows go down. Hold lock down on remote, windows don't go back up. :(
4) Nav keeps changing it's mind about which exit to take miles ahead of time leading to SEVERAL updates within a few miles of next action. SUPER ANNOYING!!!
5) Phone buttons don't always work right. They send the call to the phone instead of the car and I have to manually hit the button on the car to change the audio (iPhone 3G)

That's it so far. Only 89 miles on the car though so I might find more, I hope not :(

Anyone know if fixes for the above are available yet?

This is a iPhone issue. My iPhone does the same. Also when connecting to my Zumo 660 / BMW Navigator IV. No such issue with my Nokia (in RRS or when connecting to aforesaid GPS's).

Welcome to the forum.

1) I have read of that stupid new "feature" (and related owner complaints) elsewhere on a Disco/LR4 forum, apparently the navigation volume is now tied to the system volume?
2) Documented bug, Land Rover is aware of it and your dealer can fix it with a software upload next time you visit them for service.
3) The windows go down if you hold the unlock button? Cool! :D They may not go back up due to some possible liability issue, especially if you are in North America (it would not surprise me if they closed remotely in countries abroad...)
4) That's odd and the first time I hear of it, I imagine that might happen if the satnav was somehow tied to a built-in traffic monitoring system, which AFAIK is only available in Europe (TMC?), I could see it recalculating routes then as traffic conditions ahead change. Otherwise there may be something wrong with your GPS antenna losing and reacquiring signal?
5) As mentioned above it's a documented iPhone bug, which Apple will hopefully address with a future firmware update.

How is this an iPhone issue? On my MB it works great. Never had an issue.

Oh I found another bug. The park distance control seems to not always be on. I have to manually turn it on about half the time when I park. Sometimes it's already on, sometimes I have to turn it on.

Any other issues I should look out for on the 2010? The dealer called this morning and asked me to come so they could look at those issues. I told them I'll go in when I have a full list.

I don't have an iPhone, but my wife just purchased a 3GS for Christmas and it won't download contacts into her 2009 Acura MDX. Her previous "first generation" 2-year old iPhone worked flawlessly with her car. As a "standard", Bluetooth sucks. There are so many wrinkles and versions and implementations to make your head spin. Some cars work great with one phone, some others don't, some work until the handset manufacturer releases an "update", then they don't work anymore. :doh:

Not sure if the Park Distance Control (PDC) system is the same on 2010s as it is on my 2006, but the way you are describing it I think it is... Initially on MY06s, the park sensors were always active at speeds lower than 6 mph. Then Land Rover received a flood of complaints from people getting false alarms from the sensors going off at intersections whenever a bus/truck would drive by (ultrasonic sensors can sometimes be triggered that way), so they changed "strategy" - they crippled the PDC module if you ask me. :lol: Starting with late build 2006s, front and rear PDC sensors are active when you start the car and up to a certain speed - I think 10mph, not sure - then they go off and stay off until you either shut off the engine and restart, or come to a full stop and engage reverse. If you want to enable the sensors manually in between (for instance, you drive up to a parking structure and need the sensors to park head-in, so you never engage reverse gear), you need to press the PDC button on the center console.

This is why Land Rover still ranks poorly in quality reports even though they're on par with everything else - people don't have the patience to learn how their complicated vehicle is designed to work and then consider things they don't get/like "faults". :roll:

To clarify umberto's comments on the parking sensors, they only turn on automatically once you put the car in reverse, and at that point stay on (in forward or reverse) until you exceed 5 or 10MPH, at which point they shut off until you re-engage reverse or press the button on the dash to engage them.

Ok so the PDC is fine. But the other items I think are valid.

Oh and another one today. Car kept saying rear hatch was open. I opened and closed it 5 times. still said open. I restarted the car and it was fine.

Not super impressed.

Welcome, trez. I commiserate on some of the below with my RRS 2010.

1. Nav volume... yes. Experienced it. It is also at equal volume if talking on the phone via bluetooth connection. Your other party will hear the nav system nice and loud... just like you do!

2. Mine's in the shop to get UK English addressed.

3. Umbertob is right... no auto up for U.S. Safety concerns. But heck I'm happy there is auto down. Spring training in AZ will be much more pleasant with this feature!

4. I have not experienced this.

5. I do not have iPhone, but BB Tour seems to work fine. I do have an intermittent issue with the steering wheel phone buttons not working even tho the LCD buttons (soft buttons) will work.

Keep in mind, when taking your vehicle in, many of the dealer shops are still getting up to speed with the new RRS 2010's. When I took mine in today, the service manager was pretty honest with me and said the service crew are just learning the issues now with the new cars. Not too surprisingly, we owners are better at sharing issues and getting each other educated than the dealers themselves at times.

I come from the MB camp. The latest cars MB puts out have been great. But between 02-06 they put out some real garbage so all us users got real used to keeping logs and determining fixes and bulletin numbers and stuff. It's not fun to see I may have to go through that again but meh. The car is a pretty sick ride so I might put up with it.
