Hi, Brought a loaded dolomite brown van yesterday. Drives like a car with great acceleration and very comfortable seating. Hope you can help with few of my questions.
1)how do I find the cross wind assist in the cluster or did they dropped this option for US.
2) Where are the cup holders for 2nd row.
3) how do I engage assisted parking. I see the P on the screen but doesn't engage the auto park.
4) was unable to load any music with the SD card. What format is acceptable in this unit.
5) collision prevention assist shows the speed in km/hr. how do I change it to MPH.
6) Removing the middle headrest from 2nd and 3rd row was a great suggestion. Any feedback on the towing.
7) floor matts, please keep us posted on where we can get Metris matts.
thanks in advance..
regards
Rahul

1) Crosswind Assist is always on and can not be turned off. It is standard.

2) There are no cup holders for the second row. I suggest buying one of those center consoles they sell for minivans with cup holders for front and back and putting it between the front seats.

3) You should read your manual (pages 154 - 158) but the gist is it is always active at speeds up to 22mph. Past that it shuts off. I don't have it, so I don't know more than what's on the pages.

4) I don't use SD cards, but I suggest bluetoothijg your phone instead.

5) There are two potential digital speed displays. Neither has anything to do with CPA.
One is accessed by by steering wheel buttons through the trip computer mode of your pixel matrix display and can be switched between metric and imperial via settings->Inst. cluster->first thing.
The second one is called the Permanent Display and is located at the top of the pixel matrix display. It is a space that can display either speed in KMH or outside temperature. It is the third option panel in the Inst. Cluster sub menu. I don't know why it only displays in metric but that's what it does. Unless you vacation to Mexico or Canada, I'd leave it in temperature mode.

6) I haven't towed yet, but the torque characteristics of the M274 blow my mind, so I bet it's good at it.

7) EBay has them. I got fronts. The backs are also available. All weather MB mats are about the only thing better than Weather-tech.

Greenmanedlion, you are the best.. The above helps a lot. I will take a look at eBay for the Matt's. Your detail review and pictures of the blue van helped me with my buying decision. Keep up the good work.
