Awesome. Now I too originally thought one had to turn to night vision mode, but seems apparently not. As long as it's 'on' in the background.
I had something similar, the mfi screen changed to night vision and it placed the guy on the side of the street in orange as he was approaching to cross the road in yonder. Brilliant!
Night vision works really well.

Mine randomly flashed the car in front the other day. Maybe cos he was going too slow and in the wrong lane. Anyway he moved :D

Nice!

I got to experience the Night Vision last week.
I have put ALL the Nanny options on, until I decide if I want their "help". I was driving through a Coast night spot when an couple stumbled out between some parked cars. Though the Night Vision screen wasn't active, their Image with a red Halo popped into the driver display and the :extended pedestrian protection measures" kicked in - No dents or blood on the bonnet and fenders. I particularly liked how the Matrix LEDs put a spotlight on them and they stopped - brilliant.
Mine flashed at a warm tree the other evening o_O

That's an awesome colour and plate choice. The R-line let alone Wolfsburg wasn't on my radar until I drove first the R-line then a quick pre-decision drive in the Wolfsburg. The flat ride and turning circle were obvious benefits on the R-line and I didn't know I absolutely needed soft close doors until I experienced the Wolfy. As always Euro optioning is not cheap but on this car to me the extras offered compelling value for a car I expect to own for 10+ years.
Brilliant, so right!
I must say it's all very worth it. The ride is awesome, great work vw

You're a brave man to embark on that on the Wolf still in warranty.

No doubt you'll tread carefully.

In the meantime you could augment your signature footer ;)
👍🙂 Was trying to, realised that it won't let me keep the history and add the new..there's a limit on how long the signature can be.
@Steve_L could we request a change please and allow for few more lines in the signature? Otherwise we could really cut down what we put in it...

We went down that slippery slope a few years ago, and the site owners refused to amend the signature protocols. The maximum number of characters permitted is all we will get.
However, there is a 'sneaky' way around it, that I did use for a while.
Attach a photo as your signature, and (if I recall correctly) there are no limits to the amount of characters you may then include within the photo. So, by adding text within a photo, you could get more info. Not sure if they have closed that loophole or not.
As for yours, I believe you still have a few more characters space to use - if you 'retire' the V6/V10/V8 with shortened descriptions. (if I listed all the mods on my motorbike....every post I made will fill a page :) )

Good call, best to clean up old signatures and shorten it, thanks @Steve_L

I have it's twin, arrived 29th April (the advantage of living on west coast).

So far have only changed the plates, towbar, EDC, and Anderson plug being fitted next week.

Moonlight blue V8, Panoramic roof.

It turns corners itself on the highway but does not like me driving one handed (I'll have to work out how to turn that part off).

Congrats!
Towbar fitted? Original VW MY21 module? I didn't think it was available yet

Gday Bruce,
That maketh sense then.
Would be worth comparing notes at some point given my21 module is different and still under development.
Have you run a scan and tested all relevant connections, features?

I can confirm OBDEleven can perform adaptations on V8 CR.

I extended the entry delay for the Alarm Siren (for when I used the "Spare" physical key to open the car).

Adaptation
Control unit: 46 Comfort System
Channel: 60
Old value: 0
New value: XX

Note: Value is in seconds. eg. 10, 15, 30.
