In an attempt to close some tabs in my browser and transfer some notes to blog form, another “short takes” post…
Deleting paired Bluetooth devices from a Volkswagen MFD
The advice is for a 2012 Passatt but it worked for my Tiguan and probably for a Golf, etc. too (there’s a maximum of 4 connected devices – although only one can be active at any one time):
- “Go to the Phone on the center information panel
- Go to Users and you will the the phone names
- Scroll to the phone you want to remove
- Push the OK button on the steering wheel
- You will be offered some options, scroll down to Delete and hit OK”
Incidentally, Know Your VW is a useful site (although it is intended for the North American market).
Patience required inserting a Micro SD card in a Tesco Hudl
After buying my Tesco Hudl a few weeks ago, I decided to get a memory card to expand the on board capacity (e.g. cary more music/video with me). Of course, Tesco is the last place I want to buy accessories like that and I picked up twice the capacity for half the price (or something like that) at MyMemory.co.uk.
The problem came when I wanted to insert the card into the Hudl. For a while I seriously thought I had a faulty tablet that would need to be returned (a bit of a shame after getting it just how I wanted it, including rooting and customising…) – I kept on pushing the card in but it would spring straight out again. It turns out that the Hudl’s card slot is very deeply recessed and some long nails (or even a knife) might be needed to push it in far enough and get it to stay in place!
