  1. Make sure they're Toyota approved. Some insurance companies would send you anywhere for repairs. Good luck with getting your car fixed :)
  2. Its got a vacuum suction mount. Could I attach sticky pads to it instead? Yes I did use the lever. I think my hands aren't strong enough. Would one of those dash mats for sat navs to sit on be any good? Even if I could get someone to attach it to the fuse box with a kit, would that not affect the Toyota warranty?
  3. Back again! I've been using it but found a bit of a problem. It falls off the screen when I'm driving. This is round the village at up to 30mph. I've it stuck to the glass behind the rear view mirror. I stuck it onto the black dots on the screen, and tried just on the plain glass, but it made no difference. Any ideas on how to get round this? I'd love to have it hardwired in, but I don't think any dealer is going to do that.
  4. Thanks very much for all your help everyone. I went out to Halfords this evening and got the Nextbase 402. All set up, I couldn't believe how easy it was.
  5. Thanks everybody for all your advice :) I think I'll go for the Nextbase 402G in Halfords. And sure I know where to come if I have any questions about it. I'll just be plugging it in. I don't like messy wires but I'm not letting anybody in Halfords hard wire it in. Its probably easy enough but I don't want to do anything that would affect the warranty.
  6. I'll not be wiring anything up to the ignition. What other easy way is there to connect it? Can you tell me more about the permanent loop? How would I know when the card is full so I can wipe it? Sorry for the silly questions, clearly a total beginner here :)
  7. Hi I haven't been on here in a while, as I've not really had much time to be on forums. Maybe some will still remember me ;) I'm looking for some advice about which dash cam to get. Or which ones are best avoided - don't want to be getting a rubbish one I want one that's easy to use and has a decent memory. Its just shocking the level of 'driving' that's actually on the road and the lengths some people will go to with lies to cover for themselves. Still I'm glad to have the Yaris back home in its wee spot in the driveway tonight.
  8. I took mines off straight away. It was great to get the nice clear windscreen :) Most other drivers round here haven't bothered taking theirs off though.
  9. I'm happy with my Touch & Go. I've never had any problems with glare on the screen. I haven't done any updates to it, might get round to that some time, though probably not. I had just the Toyota Touch when I got the car, but I got the Touch and Go installed later, for work. Its been very useful since that, for moving house to a totally new area. I wouldn't be without it. I prefer having it built in than having wires trailing round and I don't like things stuck to the windscreen.
  10. I'm getting my Yaris serviced tomorrow, so I'll get a chance to have a look at the new Aygo. Looking forward to it :)
  11. Yes they did sell the iQ. Though not in high numbers, only 12 iQs were sold in 2012, 1 in 2013, and of course none this year.
  12. Lovely colour!
  13. It'd be a shame for there to be a complete end to the iQ. I've always thought it was a lovely car, and was considering getting one the last time I changed, but went for another Yaris instead because there was no touch and go in the iQ.
  14. Hi Fiona Welcome to the club :)
  15. My Mum had a Ka from new and after a year, it had started to rust. The screws on the rear passenger windows had rusted. That was her last Ford, and she got Toyotas after that. Someone I know has a Yaris from 2000 and like the one your colleague has, its never let her down.
