Re: Driving tips to charge battery better.

It helps me stick to the speed limit 🙂 In one of the German forums I think someone had a look at the OBD2 data and worked out that re...

Re: Towing

As per one of my other posts, I have the towing option, mainly because that was the easiest way of getting the towbar fitted for a bike carrier.

Re: Minor irritation with Niro

Almost useless controls for navigating music and podcast folders/albums over the Bluetooth connection, requiring you to operate the phone directly.
