re: Stilo Hidden Features

The "P" button is the parking lights (they don't turn off by themselves ).

If you need light to find your way to the front door, all you need to do is pull on the light stalk (like when you want to flash someone when driving) which activates the Follow Me Home function. Each pull leaves the front lights on for 30 sec. (for a maximum of 5 min).

I had my old 1.6 dynamic for almost 2 years before I found that the button on the right stick changed the trip computer readings

re: Stilo Hidden Features

I found that if you tug hard enough in search of the under-seat drawer, the trim pops off

I think the Abarth 3-dr doesn't have drawers under the seats...

The feature I'm having the most fun with is the voice recognition. It's obviously very clever to be able to understand things without training - BUT you DO need to know what to say! I should read that downloaded PDF for the Connect Nav+... I never get around to this so end up shouting all sorts of commands to no effect

e.g. I can say "Dial"
("the number, please")
"0212356215"
"boop" "Zero Two One Two Three Five Six Two One Five"
<Yessss... it worked!>
"boop"
"Dial"
"Sorry"
"Enter"
<rustle> "Sorry"
"Send"
oh sod it I'll push the button again -
"Interruption"

-Alex

re: Stilo Hidden Features

i did the seat trim trick 2 whilst looking for these so called drawers, thought it was a bit of a small and useless drawer this bit of plastic, anyone mentioned the hook that doesnt hang anything cause its in an odd place or if ur lucky a plug socket in the boot?

Where do you hang your jacket then

Mine hangs above either one of the rear doors (if I can be bothered)

re: Stilo Hidden Features

re: Stilo Hidden Features

then there is that hole just to the left of the steering wheel, that can store nothing other than fresh air (the higher spec stilos have something in the hole)

how can i forget the rubber bits in the centre console that keep the pound coins for the tolls...

then.... finally, there is the ability to store a pen in the glove box
