I've heard rumors about 9102 and 9104 getting there loan extended, Though this might not be true.

Noticed 6048 front screen not working again yesterday.

It's probably a case of the destination controller being on "idle", as there have been quite a large number of reports of destinations not working on 6043 - 6048 as of late, and it's not been possible for me to replicate these issues.

The Volvo B9s are on the same "profile" within the destination controller as the "Quaylink" branded Optare Versas, as they have the same combination of destinations (144x19 colour route number, 96x8, 32x17). The option to allow remote configuration needs to be enabled on this profile to allow the destination to be automatically changed around the route with no input from the driver on the "Quaylink" Q1, Q2 and Q3 services. The downside to this is that the destination controller goes back to "idle" mode every time the ignition is switched off - if the driver forgets to input his/her destination again, then the destination displays will be blank.

Might have been a problem with the GPS at that point. That happens on our local bus quite often in a particular place.
