Any idea how you get the My Vauxhall app to show the vehicle details.
I can only seem to get my cars current location.

you just need the phone connected by Bluetooth to the car, and then every journey you take, it should record, show you fuel amount, current mileage etc

don't know if you need Bluetooth tethering enabled on the phone for it to work as I have this for TomTom Traffic. my app started recording everything last monday

I have enabled Bluetooth and connected to my vehicle but no data appears.
Not sure how to have bluetooth tethering on for an iphone 11
Thanks

Not sure on an iPhone, but I don't think you need it activated for the app to work, I take it you have the satnav infotainment system as this is needed for this to work.

Like I said, I have TomTom traffic enable and danger zone alerts, so don't know if this is needed.

At the moment yours sound like mine did before the app started reporting everything, even the location part only worked from the location of the phone, not the car

Yeah, have the sat nav, tom tom and danger zones enabled also.
Strange as it is connected to the vehicle just doesnt show data.

You need to enable it on your phone mobile data as well as the car touch screen. It might be worth you disconnecting and enabling Bluetooth again.
