    [–] Daily Random Discussion Thread - January 20, 2019 Shumayal 0 points ago in dubai

    Welcome to the club. Even I've paid my share of AED600 despite the leeway because speed limit dropped from 120 to 60 suddenly at exit to Jebel Ali Lehbab.

    [–] Daily Random Discussion Thread - January 20, 2019 Shumayal 3 points ago in dubai

    I was doing 145 km/hr

    Everywhere on entrance to Abu Dhabi from anywhere has this notice in big sign "Posted Speed limit = Radar Speed Limit"

    The new router seems to be miles ahead of the old one. Also has AC unless you already have the cylindrical router.

    VAT Refund is only eligible for tourists. So most people should steer clear. Unless, you have a private business of sort.

    Lets kick those out who are responsible for where we are today

    A contract exists. If it is met by both parties and given their due without being over or under, it is fair.

    Abu Dhabi, UAE. Or Dubai.

    [–] Breathing new life into my X compact Shumayal 1 points ago in SonyXperia

    From where did you buy the new battery for X compact? I have the X and I'm wondering if I can replace the battery too. Although, I want to ask you if you did the battery health test before replacement? Did it still say "Good and no need to replace" ?

    [–] Is it possible to run FM app in Android Auto? (see details) Shumayal 3 points ago in AndroidAuto

    I live in the UAE where mobile data is considerably expensive. Enough for me to navigate on the GPS offline. I don't subscribe to any data as a result.

    When I need the internet for navigation, I subscribe it for that day or those minutes I will use, only. But yeah, looks like this is my only option. Unfortunately, I don't live here, I just installed this for an elder person's car in the family and replaced their "Casette Player with FM/AM" which was being used since the past 10 years. Their first comment was, the radio I put is rubbish, where they need odd digits (AM), it is even, and where they need even digits (FM), it is odd.

    I got it from Amazon and I already emailed them. I updated the software first thing, and it still hasn't been fixed. I emailed Sony Customer service and they said they cannot help me. But they will convey my feedback to their technical team.

    I sincerely hope it is only a software thing and not a hardware limitation. I thought this was the age of Globalization. In hindsight, the analog FM radio was truly global.

    I didn't know what I was getting into and I overlooked this. I feel punished and I promise myself only to buy things local.

    [–] Just about done with this version of my Fiat 500e system Shumayal 6 points ago in CarAV

    Why do you have to take it in a negative? I am not mocking OP. I even implied that it is a near perfect system if they live in a "not-hot" place. I have also done an install myself with a lot of effort.

    I hope you don't live in a hot place with those vents blocked.

    "Middlemen" always create the world's problems more often than not. Avoid.

    [–] Durability of XZ1 Shumayal 1 points ago in SonyXperia

    My Xperia C4 screen cracked in the pocket with my ID card. I should have been careful.

    That said the replacement X is still going strong.

    [–] Is it possible to run FM app in Android Auto? (see details) Shumayal 3 points ago in AndroidAuto

    Unfortunately, data is very expensive in this country. I don't even subscribe to it for GPS navigation. But looks like I got nothing left.

    [–] Is it possible to run FM app in Android Auto? (see details) Shumayal 1 points ago in AndroidAuto

    Yeah, I am so disappointed they don't even ship FM anymore. This is a silent attempt at making it obsolete after the headphone jack but makes no noise in the news. The last Sony phone Xperia XZ1 with a headphone jack, still doesn't come with FM. In-fact, only midrange and low end phones have it.

    And data is super expensive in this country. I don't even subscribe to data for GPS navigation lol

    [–] Is it possible to run FM app in Android Auto? (see details) Shumayal 1 points ago in AndroidAuto

    Actually, I did see that manual. But the Manual supplied with my unit is the one that omits this, the software does not have the "Tuner Step" and I have pressed every button in the menu and settings. Even according to the linked manual.

    Is it impossible to change the tuner step? Or is it a software thing and I have a US Spec software?

    [–] My car was speed fined while being fixed at a garage in Ajman Shumayal 7 points ago in dubai

    Can you tell me more about this tracker? Model? Installation? I am interested to get one too.

    Same time last year. It snowed for exactly one and a half day. It was all gone quickly.

    Outlet mall is present when needed. It is perhaps the most underrated mall in Dubai. Even has some expansion going on.

    [–] Is Etisalat throttling torrents? Shumayal 1 points ago in dubai

    The router that Etisalat specifically includes with its internet packages is absolutely abysmal.

    I agree they have been like 5 years back when we got DIR 803 as standard. But now they are including the DIR 853 which seems to be a massive improvement. Also a cylindrical one with AC which seemed good too. Or is it? What's your opinion on the 853?
