    If it's not actually needed then it is pissing in the wind environmentally speaking.

    If your 453 is the same as any other Smart, it'll be under the passenger side foot well carpet along with a can of goo and a towing eye

    Ok thanks, I won't bother to check. I'll just use the new manual gauge Draper double barrel foot pump I bought after sending the electronic one back along with a new digital pressure gauge.

    Cost me £ 14.17 for the pump and £ 5.22 for the pressure gauge. Its the second Draper one I've had and the first one lasted me four years.

    Means I won't break the one supplied with the car.

    Iíve recently bought an Android phone to run Android Auto on my head unit, it all works well. However I was disappointed to learn that the phone still receives a charge when the engines off and the doors are locked.

    Therefore I have to remember to disconnect it from the USB port every time I park up otherwise itíll drain the cars battery.

    Another thing, Iíve just bought a 256GB MicroSD card with an adapter and this will hopefully work in either the cars SD slot or my Android phone.

    Iíd like to play music whilst Iím using google maps. Would it accept both a Android phone via USB and an SD card at the same time?

    Or does it have to go in the phone, it was only £ 25 so not a huge investment but still...

    Well I've just done a test. I put an old 2GB SD card in which has some music on and played it on the head units music player.

    I then connected my phone via Android Auto and it continued to play the music in the background.

    However despite my car being a 2019 model I don't think it supports SDXC hence why the manufacturer says max SD capacity is 32GB the SDHC limit.

    My old Android phone however does support MicroSDXC so by rights it should support the 256GB card.

    I should find out in the week, fingers crossed I can get it to work on the phone at least.

    Received my 256GB microSDXC card with SD adapter in the post today. As I thought its not recognised in the cars SD slot as that supports 32GB SDHC max.

    I also realised if you take the factory supplied SD card out then you lose your mapping data. So I put the microSDXC card into my Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and it recognised the whole 256GB.

    Transferred my music collection over and have 216GB free out of 235GB available. To play music you have start the music app on the phone and it will play through the cars head unit.

    Its a bit like having it connected to AUX as you cannot see track names etc but then if you're using Android Auto for googlemaps chances you're going to have that on full screen anyway.

    There maybe an app which will show track names etc I haven't looked into it.

    If you're connecting your phone via USB for Android Auto there's not many other options for music playback apart from using the phone itself or the SD slot with its 32GB Max and of course good old AUX.

    Iíve done a bit of googling and have found a free music app called Pulsar on the google play store which allows you to playback music from your microSD card whilst running Android Auto.

    Of course if you want google maps full screen then youíre not going to see the track names etc but itís good if you want to listen to music from inside Android Auto and control playback functions on the head units screen rather than having to use the phone itself.
