    well have you read the customer review Andy ...
    Pros: none
    Cons: dose not work!, waste of money!

    "When I brought this I did not expect it to be perfect, but I did expect it would have some effect! The 1st time I used it there was no effect, so I thought maybe I had not put enough on the windows. So the next time I absolutely plastered the windows with it. But still there was no effect, the windows where just as iced up as normal. The next time I just sprayed half the window, so I could compare and see if there was any difference. But if anything the half I sprayed seemed to have more ice than the half I did not spray!!

    It is a complete and utter waste of money!

    AVOID, DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH!!"

    climate control,top right button,(picture of screen on)puts all blower power on screen full blast and warm.
    you may have to set it up in the computer settings for the climate control.
    clears screen within 30 seconds.
