Under network settings on my wife's S7, I recall seeing a toggle for mirrorlink. I assume you could turn it off and phone will charge via USB instead of trying to mirrorlink. I haven't tried it myself. Will try tomorrow

 

As soon as the phone plugs in, the screen goes black and shows mirrorlink. Cannot go to settings to turn mirrorlink off.

Does anyone feel that the foot brake position of the FXT is very high? I'm used to resting the heel on the floor while using the ball of my foot to depress the brake. With this car only my toes could reach...And I'm size 9.

Yes, I noticed that on my FNA too. Have to lift up my foot to depress the brake. Previously, I could just shift my foot to the brake with my heel anchored to the floor. Having said that,i have now adapted to the new way of depressing the brake after driving the car for a few of weeks.

I am 1.72m, my foot size is 42, I wear shoes when driving. Maybe to clarify, the Forester brake pedal is somewhat more forward than the accelerator pedal relative to my previous ride.

The other change I am struggling to get use to is that the signal light and wiper controls have been swopped between left and right. Still wrongly activating the wiper on occasion when I meant to be the signal light. I guess old habit dies hard...

I'm a size 10.5 and I also find the brakes hard to reach with the stock mat. With the free mat given by my SE which is rather thick, the reach is much better now when I stack the new on top of the stock thin mat. Maybe you can try using a thick mat too if you don't have one now.

I don't own a forester yet. Just test drove it. 

I think i would need 2 mats to go over the stock one, though that may hinder the accelerator pedal which is lower. I was just thinking how is it possible that subaru engineered the brake pedal to be so high. Unless its meant for ang mo with size 12 and above foot. Maybe its the driving technique. Left leg for the brakes :D

 

On a side note, i test drove the outlander and the brake pedal is lower (though still high, i could make do with 1 additional mat).

Be careful of using two mats.

One your foot could get stuck.

Second the mat could slide..
