  1. With all due respect and I can understand it if you find it uncomfortable but. I wouldn't if I were you. Car seats and safety systems are computer designed and tested to operate in crashes. Every measurement is critical and in this case it wasn't test for people wearing things crtainly like that around the neck inflatable job. The seats in your car are designed that way for a reason. Say for example you have a crash and they have to cut you from the car. Will one of these things aid you or simply be the wrong thing in the wrong place ?. Please don't think I'm having a go at you, nothing personal is intended. I just wouldn't like to see someone hurt. Also if your driving and have an accident someone could even try and blame you for having restricted movement due to it. Just a thought.
  2. Can't remember exactly how many litres, but I can remember it was £19 and at approx £1.33 it's a shade under 15 litres. But I'm sure I've put in less before and it's not happened. I never let it get very low so normally it's around half full before I brim it. It's a bit poor if it can't handle being filled from 3/4. I'll wait until it goes down to half and then brim it again. To be honest though its the only problem I've had since picking it up new last September. VERY pleased with it, first Toyota and it won't be the last.
  3. Have a 62 plate Yaris SR 1.33, I filled up the other day from around half full topping the tank right the way up. I noticed straight away that the cruising range didn't re calculate the range after the refuel, and five days later it still hasn't. I've tried resetting, clearing the history any ideas or is a visit to the dealer ?
  4. I've used cable ties but make sure you have some snips in the car case you need to change the wheel, they are a bugger to get off at the side of the road.
  5. I use a USB extension lead, male on end female the other as its ot the easiest thing to access while stationary. I leave it plugged in making an accessible socket ready for when ever. Mines about a meter long and they are cheap on ebay.
  6. Well said it is only an aid. I never trust mine100%. Living in a fairly rural location, sat Nav systems if followed can lead you down many a rough B road or even an unlisted (what ever you call them) single track road. If the road looks dodgy I won't turn, if I carry on it soon reroutes me. The key in my opinion is if you don't know where your going leave early, follow the Sat Nav but read the road signs.
  7. Yes usually it's your fault if you run into the back of an other vehicle. Side on though could be eithers fault. Could mean they were there already or pulled out on you. A friend of ours had an accident on a mini roundabout. They were already on the roundabout when a car entered it and a collision occurred. Straight away the other party tried to blame our friend and indeed it could of easily been our friends fault from who hit who and the position of the cars. But witnesses came forward and the CCTV cameras covering the outside of the hospital caught the incident. The other party even called the Police in on it, only for it to be firmly rebuffed. At the end of the day the insurance companies will make there decision and there is little in anyone's control over what they say.
  8. That's odd, and I don't think that's the reason. I managed, in the end, with a 16gb Stick. I still feel its the Touch ToolBox software, as the unt in the car recognised my stick straight off, first time.
  9. Indeed. When we lived in Southampton I had a car window smashed once on the basis of a rubber suction cap mark on the windscreen. The Sat Nav was in the glove box and they got away with it. I heard them, ran out and came within inches of pushing one of the little buggers off their bike. Luckily I didn't or I'd be the one they would of locked up !!! Where I live now I've seen cars with sat nav's in for weeks on end and they don't get touched. I got the Touch & Go Sat Nav option, yes it's expensive and updating it costs, but I don't go too far and can accept a few errors or old map details here and there. I'd never trust a sat Nav for speed limits as these can change rather quickly anyway. What I like is the speed camera warnings even when the Sat Nav isn't on and directing me. Be careful with the speed camera warnings. Fixed cameras most prbably, but a 'Safety Parnership' speed van parks on the main road where I live from time to time and the Touch and Go does not register it. Regards Geoff Peace. Cheers Geoff. I have a lifetime membership on a Safety Camera Site, I managed to spot one that wasn't on their data base. They also have an app on the IPhone which I run when I don't know the area that well. This has one of the most up to date lists and lists all the mobile sites too. Now that I don't need to run my CoPilot app I can run that and use the Touch & Go to direct me.

  11. We nearly went for the Red, the Mrs liked the red but i got the final word and we got the Aqua. Its a 1.33 SR, lovely car and a lovely drive.
  12. After reading this I thought I'd have anther go with updating and adding the glass of water app. Last time I tried after many failed attempts I gave in. I ahead a brand new USB storage key, I formatted it and did everything I could and it wouldn't work. This morning it finally recognised my storage key and did the update. I then managed to get the glass of water app on and going. It seems to me that the Touch & Go Toolbox software is, excuse the pun, very "touchy". The software one moment recognised my USB Key and the next it wouldn't. All the time though my PC recognised it. Well I got there in the end !!!!
  13. Well I picked up my 62 Plate Yaris 1.33 SR last Tuesday, after a week with it I am very pleased. I've never had a Toyota before and I'm very impressed with the build quality and overall finish. Currently I'm getting 46 MPG which is on Country and Urban roads. Also we are very impressed with the dealer, we've had two calls to check we were happy with the car in one week. OHHHHH and the reversing camera is great until the camera gets a speck of dirt or rain on it !!!

    There isnt a Mk3 Diesel SR as yet :P One of the reasons I ended up with the SR rather than the TR.

    Thanks for that mate. I'll register and see what I get, but that seems pretty accurate. I'm getting the 1.3 petrol version, I would of considered Diesel but we dont do the miles.
