Is the car registered with VIN and Navi SN to some of the online RLink stores?

I have had this before and it relates to what subscriptions you have as you require a data connection.
For me subscribing to Traffic alerts got me the data connection.
Also if you are actually moving it will remain greyed regardless of your subscription status

yes, i spoke to renault help who also advised me of this. the kadjar already has a greyed out expired coyote on there that has expired, however the person on the phone at renault advised me against renewing it as its a crowd data fed app that isn't that popular in the uk and thus not so useful unless i was planning driving in France. She went on to say that the tomtom app would keep me up to date on traffic problems (although Im not entirely convinced that the inbuilt satnav wasn't already doing this? It seemed to know about the local roadworks (although this could've been old data, they've been thereabout a year already)) and offer connectivity. With that mind i purchased tomtom and have had in car confirmation. My renault says its active but as yet I have no rlink store in the car and the tomtom satnav does not appear in the r-link tool to transfer to my data stick :?:

P.S. This was meant to be me saying hi, and its diversified into an r-link issue, perhaps an admin feels the thread needs moving?

Hi, as a long time 1.2 petrol owner allow me to advice you on a few things w/ your car:

1. I may be wrong but I guess the 66 plate is mid 2016. Thats the "old" R-Link unit (I have the same) which is a joke with regards to in-car nav connectivity. The R-Link unit has a built-in sim card that provides extremely slow data connectivity which is also very unreliable. This is improved on the newer generation R-Links but for the older you may want to just use Android Auto (which uses your phone data connectivity).
2. On the 1.2 tce engine keep an eye on the oil levels at all times. I'd say every 600-700 miles pull the stick to check the level and if you notice the level dropping - keep in mind to have a bottle of oil in the trunk especially when going on long trips.
3. There is great room for interior noise reduction improvements - all the cheap plastics and trim covers can be insulated so they don't click and squeak when going over bumps etc. Depending on the type of person you are this may or may not annoy you, but in case it happens to be an issue for you just know its fixable.

Hope this is useful, some of the above also applies for the diesels ;)

Enjoy your Kadjar
