    The whole point of Climatronic VAG systems is that you set and forget them. Shouldn't need to adjust them while driving at all.
    I thought that was the point of *any* climate control system? Mine just sits on auto all year round, hardly touch it.

    re: Next time you buy a car - will you care if it has Sat Nav?

    I really hate that everything gone integrated now, It also adds to the fact that its the fastest way to date a interior now.

    The Nav in my V60 i hate using, so i've stuck to pairing my phone to my garmin nav unit, does a far better job.

    For all the improvements they shout about it all feels a bit meh to me

    Not necessarily. Depends if yours is Climatic or Climatronic. The latter does everything that the former does, but also has loads more monitoring and auto-alterations, to attain and maintain the exact temperature you dial in. The former tends also not to have multi-zone controls.

    Many people don't use Climatronic properly. They set it as if it were Climatic.

    Sorry, I guess those are VW marketing terms, does not compute.

    I have a dial, I like being at 23 degrees so that is what I set it to, all year round. Wifey sets her side a bit lower. Perhaps Alfa have spoiled me. I *could* turn off auto and treat it like an old school aircon system, but can't imagine why I would.

    That's what I did. I was very tempted by an upgrade to the next trim level to get cruise control when we were car shopping, but it came with an 'upgraded' headunit with satnav which was a no-go for me so I just stuck with the mid level (yes it's a Dacia Sandero).

    That is the basis of how it's supposed to be.
    Climatronic just has additional things like sensors that detect when the sunlight through the windows is heating the cab up. It's all automatic and fancy stuff you'd never otherwise notice.

    I still prefer old school manual controls, myself.

    Other brands climate control does this too.

    Yes, but it still has no bearing if you don't use it right in the first place.
    Basic AirCon is on/off, setting, strength, temp, fiddle, fiddle, fiddle, fiddle, fiddle.... Climate Control is set and forget, especially the fully automatic versions that auto-recirc when you go into reverse, or when it detects fumes from slow moving traffic.

    I only mentioned Climatronicâ„¢ as it was in reference to a VAG car.
