Re: Settings Menu

I found a Fiat dealer who has shown interest in the digital speedo issue he has 500L cars with two different display one with first page and one without The one with first page option was easy to change to digital the other car not so after nearly a hour we could not do it he said he would look into it this week if he comes up with a answer I will post on here .

Have just seen this post. If I press the "Set" button I get different options on the display above the steering wheel, when I press the "Settings" button on the UConnect that is when I get all the options you are wanting.

@Welshrambler It would be nice to have a digital speedo readout but on the newer display I am sure this is not an option. If the dealer comes back and says otherwise I would be interested to know

Re: Settings Menu

I'm really fascinated to know why some cars have this setting and some don't. Has any kind of link been noticed (trim levels, age etc)?

We should hopefully have ours in the next 4-5 weeks (being built this week!) and I'm hoping new factory builds have this option as the obscured speedo is a very silly bit of design.

I think the only difference is in the display itself, the newer one which I have does not have most of the option as the older display has.


@Ben87 this is what I get when I press the "Settings" on the UConnect and then in the last bit of the video I press the "Set" button which brings up limited options.


The radio display may look damaged on the video but I have kept the cover over it from when I had it new.

According to the owners manual (including the owners manual for the 2015/2016 model), there are two display types, a standard display, and a multi function display which is only on the higher trim levels. One is not newer than the other - they are just installed on different trim levels.

It might be helpful at this point if we all post pictures of our dash displays along with trim level and model year. We can then compare and work this out

I also had problems seeing the analogue speedometer.

Thanks for posting the video. That was quite helpful I still have far less options than you on the UConnect screen when pressing "Settings" though.

In regards to the dash screen, I don't think the screen in your car is newer, I think it's just the standard screen which is installed on the Pop trim.

I'm pretty sure if we could find a dealer that has the latest Pop and Lounge trim available, they would find the exact same display as you have on the Pop, and the exact same display as I have on the Lounge. I don't think the displays have changed at all over the years.

Very odd with the different settings you have on yours. Are you able to put up a video showing what you get?


In regards to the screen I thought they had updated them when they changed the specs of the car. Only reason why I thought that, was the one we test drove, which was a Lounge if I recall and I just assumed that when mine turned up with a different display that was one of the changes.

Interesting, ours is a Lounge, so maybe it will have it then. Fingers crossed!

If our Lounge turns up with it, then I guess we'll have ruled out age being a factor then. Roll on end of March and I'll be able to confirm.

The only option that appears on my UConnect screen when pressing "Settings" is "Rain Sensor" which lets me change the sensitivity.

In regards to the dash display and digital speedometer...

I suspect this will be the answer to our question...

Pop Trim (standard display): Not possible
Lounge Trim (multi display): Possible but only with the latest software

Hopefully I am wrong.

I would be quite confident that your Lounge will turn up with the "First Page" option and digital speedometer. The factory should use the latest software.

Let us know when it arrives
Thanks SuffolkBexx thanked for this post

Will do! May seem like such a small thing, but I'm really hoping we get it.

Re: Settings Menu

It seems we are getting somewhere lol.


So the standard display does not have any option for digital display but the Lounge does. You should be fine then @SuffolkBexx getting the Lounge.


Getting back to the original question about changing settings for the light sensor I can only suggest that maybe there is no option and it is fixed at a set point. I'll do a bit of digging and see if I can find any other info out

Re: Settings Menu

I have looked through the manual at the setup options and I know this is specific to which version you have but I thought it might give some idea of what you should get according to this when pressing the "Set" button.


The only options I get when I press the "Set" button if I remember them are


Menu
Speed Buzzer (possibly not this)
Buzzer
Service
Airbag


Also just as a thought, I paid extra to have the Rain Sensor / Automatic Lights so that might be one of the reasons why I find this option from pressing the "Setting" button rather than the "Set" button

You were right! My 16 plate Lounge does indeed have the First Page option and the digital speedo.
