Look out the windscreen.   Sorry, couldn’t resist. 😜 

Those could have proved to be hollow words if it had all gone pear shaped!  😱   Fortunately so far, so good!     I used the spare key to unlock the car, created a second profile (using d

I think the problem is you having a Samsung. It can be rectified by purchasing an iPhone :-)

See if the Two Fingure Salute works when the recommended corner speed is displayed😂


Done in the style of Peter Kaye of course.  😂

The above gesture (à la Kaye), was the very first thing my daughter was taught by her Godfather.  I knew we’d made a great choice of godparent.  😂
 

Takes Gesture Control to a new level too!

Does an iphone 12 pro max fit in the wireless charging pad space in the center console? 


Yes perfectly fits. 
 

The charging pad really only holds existing charge as opposed to proactively charging.  Also some find their phone gets very hot to the point it gives the temp warning. My iPhone 12 Pro Max gets warmer than my previous 11 Pro Max did but not very hot.

Your infotainment system just got an upgraded
to one that has gesture controls (at least partial)

it’s just like a new iOS version
always adds something

As per my prize, I want a Lapiz blue Golf 8R w/HK+DCC.
I know I ordered one, but it too seems to be imaginary 😉


I wish I could tell you it (partial gesture control) is a worthwhile upgrade but no!  
 

Unlike your, as yet imaginary, R prize which is/will be worth it.

Thanks both!

 

Good to know about the charge holding compared to fully charging while wireless. I'd assume for longer drives you could just plug in via USB and still use carplay that way and fully charge.

Yes just connect with the USB-C cable and it’ll charge properly and CarPlay still useable.

Still was funny to realize that
I discovered something in the R
without me even having mine … ;-)

That is a good temporary nickname for it
— my R-prize —
Maybe I can geek it up a bit,
and call it the R-ter-prize ;-)

I’m not sure you can entirely claim sole credit for the discovery as both Jason’s @jason1972 and @JaseW were already aware of it.  😉 You’ll have to be gracious and share credit.  😄  You can keep the R-ter-prize though.  A take on Pulitzer Prize?  But you hate journalists. 😁

Oh, for sure, as probably other owners knew as well.
Also, without all of you checking, it would have stayed a theory.
So credit is duly shared, no doubt.

I see it’s becoming a target for resistance, so in order to maintain world (or at least forum) peace, I hereby relinquish my imaginary, nonsensical and meaningless throne as discoverer of the fact you all have Gesture Control :-)

Really ? Pulitzer ?
That’s what you got from
my starship R-ter-prize ?

I was only teasing. :)  Target for resistance?  As you’ll know…. Resistance is futile.  😉  

 

But yes, I got Pulitzer Prize from that, lol.  Just thought you’d misspelled it.
