Sorry dropped my phone and accidentally pressed send in the process.
I think the converse+ should give a visual parking aid rather than just the beeps.
I think there should be 2 trip computers, the one that is fitted and one that resets itself for each journey, my Audi had this feature and it was actually really useful.
The navigation interface could be improved, so you can enter a destination (eg postcode) through the steering wheel buttons rather than just the options available.

keyless entry and start

Adam,

Was keyless entry standard ? I thought it only had keyless Start as standard.

The navigation interface could be improved, so you can enter a
destination (eg postcode) through the steering wheel buttons rather than
just the options available.

Voice entry doesn't work very well then ? :)

 

Hopefully mine's being delivered tomorrow :)

Keyless entry came with mine yeah, not sure if that is because I also got the rear seat dvd screens, I vaguely remember seeing something written that the screens automatically give you keyless entry too.
I've not really used the voice control to be honest.
It doesn't work well with my phone but I'm not sure if it's the sheer number of contacts I have, (around 400 contacts each with several numbers) as it always says the phone book is not available.

Good luck with your mate, let us all know how you get on.

Adam,
Thanks for the info.
I had problems with phone book and my previous car (Seat Exeo) , traced it to a picture associated with one of the contacts. Deleted that and it worked fine. Phone worked fine with the Focus I've had on loan for the last couple of weeks although that had the Ford SYNC system.

Just checked and keyless entry is included with the Rear seat DVD system

Because all my contacts sync with my work outlook account, some do have photos attached, I might try deleting them to see how it gets on.

That's poor on Ford's part!, I won't be a brand new car ( my Wife does ) so I don't see what you get as my car's are always 2-3 year's old and I just ask "The Carpeople" in Manchester to get the top of the range Mondeo with the best kit ( except satnav ) and 2/3 colour choices etc.. and they call BMW/Merc/Audi for pumping up the price?

Well, I'm impressed so far with mine!, at least I was until the SatNav threw a wobbly this morning on the way to the office. Suddenly got a message saying "Please insert original data carrier!" which appeared on every function screen and disabled the touchscreen. I suspected it was an SD card problem and looked at trying to remove the access panel to check it. Couldn't do it easily and so eventually managed to get the local dealer to have a quick look today, rather than wait to book it in, with some pressure from their fleet leasing dept!. I was right, whoever prepped the car hadn't clicked the sd card in properly, 10 mins and it was sorted, much better than their original 'you'll need to leave it with us for the morning sir' .

Anyway I'm pleased so far, it's very smooth, quiet and plenty of power. Pretty economical too at the moment, although I'm still probably taking it a bit steady. It's a big car to park though compared with the old Exeo.

Bit of a niggle that there is no gas strut opener on the bonnet, seems they removed it from the Mk4!. One of my colleagues in the office was VERY surprised when he tried to open the bonnet while they were all looking round it on Friday, his wrist hadn't been expecting all that (unassisted!) weight.

They are good cars, but they do still lack in some ways - a small difference I think that would give a brilliant result is a gas strut bonnet opening. I am also disappointed at how low the bonnet sits when propped up. I would much prefer it to be 2 - 3 inches higher.

I've done almost 1500 miles in mine now and I'm getting more and more comfortable and settled with it.
I still stand by my previous comments relating to the convers+ being a bit of a disappointment but in the whole I am really impressed.
It is a big car, certainly coming from an A3 it feels massive and parking is taking some getting used to.
The gas struts were probably omitted on a cost basis, I think it was a bad move to leave them out.
I also noticed today that the parcel shelf is very thin and flimsy.
On the whole I am very impressed and happy with my choice of company car.
