Snowflake?

I thought I saw a post a while back about someone saying that when the temperature went down below freezing that had a snowflake symbol show up on their dashboard. Did I imagine that? We went down below freezing yesterday here in Virginia Beach and I did not see a snowflake anywhere on my display...?

Yes - a chime when less than 4C (or F equivalent) and a snow flake;

It was around 15 degrees F (about -10 C) and I didn't notice a snowflake. Maybe its another one of those differences between NA and EU models.

Do the EU models have an audible tone when the snowflake illuminates? My BMW and VW did and it always startled me. I thought something was wrong with the car. The snowflake is cool (pun intended) but I'm fine with out it.

Yes, it comes with a single bip and You can see an extended explanation of the warning under the application menu in the infotainement system.
