    That site is back up for anyone that cares.

    My vin is still unfortunately invalid everywhere. Does anyone know who updates the vin databases, and how long it takes. My car is currently en route from DE to UK.

    Thanks for that the data code 230 parking guidance is shown but all I get is the P in a blue square in the dash when speed less than 20 mph no arrow to indicate a space found does this mean guidance not enabled

    I tried that it is very good app. It listed code 230 parking guidance,I get the blues letter P in the dash when speed less than 20mph but never an arrow to indicate a available parking space. The sensors are working does this mean I don't have guidance enabled.

    The arrow will only show when there is a suitably sized space available

    You do Jack- you need to be indicating on the side you are aiming to park in, then the arrow will appear....hope that helps
