    New radio installed.

    Sorry for taking so long to update, I got the Sat Nav module for the radio and it works very well i am pleased to say. I hated using the Apple Car Play function for navigation as this only works if you have a phone signal. For example i was staying in the Lake District and planning a route was impossible with no signal {its amazing how many people rave about such a thing but never mention it only works if you have a signal} so planning was useless.

    Sheered brake disc retaining screw.

    It is not a cause of concern as the screw is not taking any load and simply holds the disc flat against the hub when the wheel is removed. The wheel nuts/bolts hold it flat down so don't worry about that. I don't know why paulie b has made that absurd reply either??

    Trying To Trace Previous Owner

    Thats great news, i had no luck myself and RRG Toyota were not able to help so i guess i am in trouble if anything happens. I will have a word with my local car security specialists to get their opinion on the matter.

    I contacted the Toyota dealer from where i bought the car and they sent me this. ALARM GT86.pdf

    Trying To Trace Previous Owner

    Reading this has got me thinking. Inside the glovebox on mine there is a numpad with Sigma on it and i was not given any details on this when i purchased the car from my local Toyota dealer. I assume it could be some kind of immobiliser and i fear if and when the car battery fails it will activate somehow and need a PIN code inputting!!! Time to call the dealer and get the info i need.

    Adding a Reversing Camera.

    I looked into this myself but didn't find anything. I have swoped out the original head unit for an aftermarket that supports a reversing camera but don't fancy wiring one up and mine is an Auto transmission too so i would imagine that the wiring would have to detect a reverse gear signal from somewhere so i will love it alone for now.

    New radio installed.

    As some of you may know i bought a 2015 GT86 recently and the factory fitted radio is not very impressive so i duly bought a new Pioneer unit with touch screen and has things like DAB+ and Apple Car Play for example. Now i am also considering the Pioneer satnav module for it to make it complete. The satnav has things TMC lane guidance and text to speech for speaking out road names etc. Not a cheap option at a price tag of just over £300 but i think it will be worth it and i will be fitting it myself too. I will keep you posted on this one.

    I got the Waze App for my iPhone and my new pioneer head unit has support for Waze and Apple Car Play so I'm sorted with what i need.

    Traction Control & VSC Sport on GT86

    The only button i use on mine is the SPORT and combined with the paddle shift it goes like a rocket so i have to watch my speed. With the snow we had around here today, about 2 inches i used the snow button and got round reasonably well in that mode.

    Used GT86 Purchase.

    So i have finally bought a Pioneer head unit, the SPH-DA230DAB which has a good spec, no nav but i'm not bothered about that. Also i treated myself to some Valenti LED tail lights so i have plenty of fitting to do when i get chance. The head unit and tail lights have set me back the best part of £900 quid so thats my spending done for a while.
