Picked my car up, after new screen fitted 3 days later and we had a frost. Tried it and still didn't work, it got "slightly" soft but never really made an impression, taking it back on Wednesday for dealer to have another look.
Username did the new relay totally solve your problem, does your screen totally clear in frosty conditions

Yes works as it should, melts the frost quick wipe and it goes, even works on steamed up windscreen when it's cold and turn the heater on if we get any frost which I doubt now I will take few pics

'slightly soft' is how it is. Its not designed to completely clear the ice but it should be sufficient in less than about a minute to enable tye wipers to clear the screen. On misted windscreens it will help to clear the condensation, but the best and quickest way is to use the 'quick clear' button on the top left of the Connect unit.
