Forum: c453 - General discussions relating to the fortwo

A Forum dedicated to the smart fortwo (c453 model) - 2014 onwards

  1. A question for our more advanced smart insiders regarding the smart media-system

    I know we have some smarties that have access to information us lay-people don't have, and asking our local smart dealer doesn't really help, so I'm relying on the kindness of strangers to answer this pretty specific Apple → smart Media-System question I bought a demo late 2016 ForTwo with the...

  2. Question Smart-Media System: Android Auto and Apple Carplay coming?

    Hey all, I'm reading that the current models of the smart Media System includes (or may include) Android Auto, and some articles mention Carplay coming too. Can anybody confirm this, and maybe say if this is backward compatible somehow? I drove a loan 2017 and noticed the interface is...

  4. Unhappy A little eco-irony (Eco-Score versus Cruise Control)

    I found a delicious irony in the interaction between the Cruise Control function and the Eco-Score meter. Say you set your car Cruise control to 120km/h, but due to traffic, you slow down to 110 km/h. Cruise control smartly disengages until youíre ready again. The road opens up again, so you...

  6. Distortion - JBL kit (normal head unit)

    Anyone else have a problem with distortion ... not particularly on loud passages I'm becoming more certain it's on the DSP side of things , not the actual speakers .... I can be listening to Piano music say (via the phone, which is via the USB) and get a slight background distortion at times...

  7. Tyre time...

    Need some new tyres in the next month or so. I have the Prime Sport with 16Ē wheels. Are there any other options than the oem Continentals? Seems most other brands either the front size OR the rear, but not both. Also, anyone found any all weather tyres? Winter I can find.

  8. New version of the TomTom MyDrive Connect app now says it's incompatible?

    Hey People! Short version: Tried to check to updates from Tomtom. TomTom MyDrive app now complains that I need an app called Smart Media Connect, and redirects me to the TomTom smart page, but this "new" software is nowhere to be found. Longer version: I just plugged in my Smart Media...

  9. Start / stop never really works

    Hi all, How is everyone's Start / Stop? I do about 10 miles a day to / from work, and it never kicks in. If I do the odd 100 mile journey, towards the end, it might kick in once, but then not again. I've recently had the first service, and like a fool completely forgot to mention this to...

  12. Manual vs auto comparison

    So I bought my 5 speed manual ForTwo in the summer. Itís just been in for its first service and I had an auto as a loan car. Which gave me the chance to perform a direct comparison. Iím also an (ex) Roadster owner. So familiar with past smart offerings. Overall I was impressed with several...

  17. Question Smart Media System / Mirrorlink

    Hi folks - got myself a 2016 forfour and was wondering if anyone has managed to get mirrorlink to work - according to the manual there should be a mirrorlink app in the services section of the menu (in the car) but I dont have it - just the usual tomtom live options. Any ideas? Tried a couple...

  19. Braking instability among other issues?

    Proxy 0.9 Turbo DCT 2016 3525 miles. Ever since I got this bloody thing I have always noticed that under 50% or more braking at 50-60MPH+ the rear end gets so titchy and light. There has been a number of occasions when I've had to slam my brakes and the rear end is seriously about to slide out,...

  20. DAB option / upgrade

    I'm not (yet) the owner of a 453 but I'm hoping to get one (a forfour) in the near future (or at least, before they stop making the petrol models next year) but I've noticed that most 453s do not have the DAB option. Where it does, it can be - it seems - implemented with either the touch screen...
