Hi, Just saw your message.... I'm working in Auckland this week- I assume you are there somewhere?
I'm more than happy to come to you at a time that suits and give you some cash/beers/whatever if we can sort out the coding...
Let me know if that would work for you,

(p.s Your mailbox is full hence the post here...)

Cheers,
Rhys

Hi all

So the multifunction unit on the steering wheel is knackered, and the mfd is stuck in German :) as the down arrow scroll button no longer works.

Any recommendations on where to get a replacement from?

Danke schon :)

The windshield wiper leaver should have an up and down toggle on the end of it.

Not sure what you mean ?

Thatís good to hear itís all fixed and that 80 Vert told you the solution.
I suspect the fact that you tried to solve the problem yourself and gave a detailed description helped too. Not just the usual, my car isnít working right.  Help.

dunno if you youngsters remember when speedcameras were first introduced in godzone but the areas they operated in were clearly signposted.

that had some effect on slowing people down unlike the current regime of chasing the horse after it has bolted from the stable.

$100k a pop is clear US DOD milspec pricing !

those cameras cost over $100k each
There is another example of daylight robbery. With the price of tech, these days. They should be able to do a full, solar powered system that feeds data back to a central point over a secure network for way less than that.
Even if they spent $500k on development of the system, it would be worthwhile.

In some places it's not - I suspect in the USA prior to the speed camera ban, the driver has to be made aware of the upcoming camera.

I'd like to see the same laws adopted here - I see signs go up "warming red light camera" - so there should be signs for speed cameras too and random cameras inside cop cars on the side of the road should be 100% ILLEGAL.
 
And yes red light cameras should be at every intersection - however this won't happen due to cost, those cameras cost over $100k each

I think red light cameras should be at every intersection. Red light running is a rampant problem and is dangerous.
As for speed cameras. It depends on placement. I have no issue with permanent speed cameras in areas that are known for high speed accidents. These serve a purpose of slowing people down in those areas. In the early 2000s these were all over the UK. Big bright yellow boxes that you can see from miles away. Nothing covert.
As for random, revenue generators that are put up purely to make money. 100% against that. Should that even be legal?
