I need to read the manual. It’s beeping at me if I engage reverse (not once, continuously, and this isn’t the parking sensors), I can’t turn off voice prompts on the navigation, it beeps if I go over 70mph, goes into Auto three seconds after I shift with the paddles and doesn’t apply the parking brake when I stop.
My Pista does this drives me mad lol be interested to know how you turn it off and yes I know I should read the manual haha
I wonder if they all beep in reverse? My 360 does it too.

Re auto manual switch back, mine does it too, quickest return to auto after using paddles in any car I’ve had. Just press the button to force it into manual mode 👍🏼

Is it turned off by pressing the “Auto” button?

Owners manual here - https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/portofin... (you will probably have to register to be able to download - but don't you have one in the car anyway?). Page 125.

Other than parking sensors neither my 430 or 458 beep at me in reverse.

The going back to auto when in auto mode is standard behaviour, you go to manual by pressing the "AUTO" button it toggles between auto and manual.

I was told that the beeping while in reverse can’t be turned off.

The voice guidance needs to be turned off in the main car audio settings, not the Nav settings, and the strange rattling noise was the anti-sway bar falling off the car as the bolts attacking it hadn’t been tightened.

I don’t think you can turn off the constant beep when reversing, unless you turn the parking sensors off.

I believe when the Sat Nav is giving verbal guidance you can turn the volume down using the volume knob.

Turning the voice prompts down with the volume knob means that the music is still muted when the prompts are given. There’s an option in the general settings, under Audio to turn them off.

Yes mate - button toggles the car between manual and auto modes.

From memory my Scuderia also beeped when reversing - for a while I thought it was parking sensors, until I realised it did not have any

Collected my 2017 488 last week and to say I'm impressed would be a huge understatement.


Currently 991.2 turbo.
But with a itch to get into a Ferrari 458 or 488 before popping my clogs.
Any tips chaps?

If you’re the type that doesn’t think twice about using the car, where you park it etc etc, go for it.

Do you mean when you stop and turn off the car? If you put it in neutral by pulling both paddles, then turn off the car, it *won't* apply the parking brake. This is so-called "car wash mode", allowing the car to be moved with the engine off. If you just hit the start/stop button with the car in gear (forward or reverse) it will automatically apply the parking brake straight away.

I found this weird after driving things like PDK Porsches, where you physically move the shift lever into Park before turning off the ignition, but the Ferrari dual clutch approach is to simply stop the car in gear, then hit the start/stop button before taking your foot off the brake.

Ferrari also recommend with the F1 system (when switching off) that you leave it in first gear even though there is a manual handbrake. Not absolutely sure why to be honest.
