Hi Simon

My Aug 02 build MCS with satnav came with the 3 degrees C chime switched off, but it was one of the options offered when I got other settings changed.

Both Rita's Jan 03 and Aug 04 build MCs (without satnav) came with it switched on.

I thought that the default was "on" from Sept 02, irrespective of whether the car has nav. Maybe the previous owner of yours had it switched off?

The thing i dont get is, if you have your nav screen on computer, and then the temp drops below 3C.

The screen has 2 temp readings flashing aswell as one on the trip computer.

Is there really any need to tell me 3 times that the temp has dropped. 4 times if you include the chime.

Just my 2 pennies worth.
Older cars with nav don't have these luxuries, and OBC is a separate screen on nav.

As I mentioned before, Jan 03 and Aug 04 MC without nav came with chime switched on.

Although it didn't come as standard on my Aug 02 MCS it is switchable, along with things like follow-me-home, auto lock on starting, auto unlock on removing key and comfort opening (to replace remote tailgate release).

Different views from different people, that's why you can choose!

when I hear the chime, I freak out thinking my something's wrong with my engine.
My wife's MC is used to teach kids to drive. They really panic when they hear the chime!

BTW I never got it switched on when the other options were set on the MCS.
