  1. Ouch Pete! Condolences. I'd be more worried about possibly re-installing the same used Cat, if from eBay :D
  2. Toggle through the setup, customisation, using the steering wheel right button; that's how it's done in the 2018 phv.
  3. Interesting. So if the driver doesn't brake, but comes to a stop after an impact......
  4. I agree Joe, but how to explain why the RAV4 does better than the Prius (in my experience). Mind I've often wondered, with all these TSS features, as to why they don't incorporate an accident dashcam!

    Winter!

    Wheels changed over this morning. So far TPMS has initialised with no 'problems'. Was a bit worried tackling this, as I have an hiatus hernia - but seems OK, had forgotten how 'light' the wheels are 😄
  6. I found the RSA was accurate maybe 80% of the time on my two RAV4s, whilst on my phv it's accurate 60% - perhaps due to height of camera on the cars? Switched off very quickly! Satnav still displays, latest build.
  7. I have a letter from Toyota GB, surely they know what vehicle model I have. I have a Case opened at Toyota GB, giving my vehicle reference numbers, and the advisor confirmed the CatLoc suitable for my vehicle. The garage have written information that says, no CatLoc isn't and won't be available for my vehicle. That's what I mean by right and left handies....
  8. Left and right hands! There are NO plans to make a CatLoc for the Prius phv models....
  9. Confirmation from the garage this morning. That catloc does not fit the 2018 phv, and Toyota (UK) have no plans for one.
  10. 106 miles round trip to the dealer to be informed the catloc doesn't fit the 2018 phv (there's only one fitment in the catalogue).
  11. They seem to damn it with their praise. Mind it reads as though they have cause to.... Space lost in the boot for the extra, small, motor; so they'll not have any boot capacity if it has a phv option in the future!
  12. @HectorG I've used the Charge mode to go from zero to 12 miles, on a journey from the Harris border to Stornoway, using a long downhill stretch to advantage. The onboard figure still gave me over 80MPG for the journey. I've noticed, by experience, using longish downhills can be useful!
  13. Maybe - I still find it interesting the way it all works - once the EV mode is exhausted, there's still the ev part of the HV available. But once the EV is exhausted the car won't accept any harvesting unless the charge mode is activated.
