    Comand - Late roundabout notice

    I purchased a new A180 a few months back and specced comand (as it seemed silly not to). One thing that bugs me is the late notification of a roundabout, I seem to have to be almost on top of it before it will tell me which way I am going to have to turn. Hopeless if I need to get in a...

    Loss of Traction

    Hope somebody can enlighten me. I have a 2003 C180K and it has, on occasion, have the back slip out while going round a roundabout. I know it is rear-wheel drive but I thought in dry conditions I would not have issues like this. Is this a problem with my driving style and I need to change or a...

    Do you indicate on roundabout?

    One thing that really annoys the hell out of me, when someone indicates left or right when they are going straight on at a smallish roundabout where you have full sight of each exit. That is the roundabout is small enough that you can see all the cars entering the roundabout. Some indicate...

    Unlucky R107 on Heyford Hill roundabout this afternoon

    It would appear the nearside rear wheel had decided to make a bid for freedom, leaving it to continue for a good few yards on the brake disc (and quite possibly the lower body :doh:) Not a pretty sight.

    Roundabout prang.

    So travelling on my way home as usual along a dual carriageway with marked dual lanes on the roundabout. Coming round to my exit (straight over really but still first exit) and spotted a pair of cars with varying damage. Looks like one guy was in lane 1 of the roundabout had carried on round...

    Daily roundabout cut-up

    Today it was only two people who cut me up either on or exiting roundabouts. It seems that I encounter at least one moron who is either unable to use their mirrors, or doesn't understand how to use a roundabout properly. Turning right but in the left hand lane? In the middle lane but...

    MB have said that the problem with the roundabouts on Comand being incorrectly announced by Frau Navigation (the lady in the dashboard) will be fixed by a service update this autumn. :) Pooh! I was hoping for a free TMC-enabled Version 5.0 DVD to fix it. :( News about which, I am afraid...
