Unwanted announcement

Sat Jun 02, 2018 5:09 am

I apologise if this has been asked one hundred times before but I cannot find it in the forum.

How do I stop the annoying announcement that I keep getting telling me how well (or not!) I have been driving

It is distracting as I have to keep reaching across the car to turn it off

Thanks

Might help to post what kind of car you have. I don't hear this announcement either so it would appear you are hearing it because you have not turned it off.

The car is a Leaf Tekna 30kw Nov 2017. I haven't turned it off because I can find no way to do so. If I could, I could travel in peace!!

Turning off all voice announcements in "Sounds" in the menu should work. I've never gotten it either.

Ahh European! Yeah, can't really help you. I would peruse your settings options. I am afraid us Americans simply don't have the option. Poor us! ;)

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "kw".

MNL is a US-centric site and unfortunately, I have no '17 Leaf. Nav system UI changed a bunch starting around model year '15, I think.

Maybe there's a setting relating to information feeds? I think I disabled all that to try to mitigate my car hitting the yellow ! car and throwing a P3131 DTC. On my '13, there was a setting under Menu > Carwings Settings > Information Feed Setting, where you can edit the list and change download settings. Before disabling, my car would announce something along the lines of my efficiency and compared to other drivers in my region, my (efficiency of) driving was average, good, etc. To reach gold or whatever, I'd need to be above ___ miles/kWh.

I get those in my car. It started a few months ago (maybe longer). I have not tried to turn it off. I believe it is one of the information feeds.

I think its the new replacement for the "nag" screen as I have been blessed with the same announcements myself :roll:

I was able to eliminate the announcements on both the 2011 SL and 2015 SL by disabling the information feeds (I think it was under Settings, CarWings). Your UK model might be different.
