    Carplay Maps Guidance Volume?

    Does anyone know how to adjust the volume of the Turn-By-Turn navigation in Maps on Carplay? Originally I had it but all of a sudden it is gone? I do have "loud" voice prompts enabled in the maps settings but still no volume. Thanks.

    Golf R: Mirror Dip in Reverse?

    Do the 2017 Golf R (USA) support dipping the passenger side mirror in reverse? If so, how do you program it? Also, do the return to the proper position after reverse? I saw some posts suggesting USA models do not have the memory function to return to the proper position. Thanks.
