  1. There’s a review for an android auto one on CarPlay life https://www.carplaylife.com/video/carlinkit-4-0-wireless-carplay-and-android-auto-adapter-dongle-cpc200-cp2a-review/
  2. Other reason. Tyre inflation kit a lot cheaper than supplying 5th alloy wheel and tyre.
  3. Would prefer illuminated switches and spare wheel. Not really interested in my EV ratio as I drive along. Does say wireless smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® is featured as standard so a plus there
  4. Thanks for the information regarding Toyota being able to do the recalibration. Would be happier if it was done by them and certainly would contact Toyota if it happens with my present RAV.
  5. Would have preferred my local Toyota garage to do the work but insurance company has an arrangement with Autoglass. Also heard that screen replacement was done by a outside contractor even if you were dealing with the Toyota dealer.
  6. With my previous 4.4 took the car out of the garage, on a sunny day. Sat on drive few hours later long crack across the screen. Autoglass replaced the screen and recalibrated the cameras. 4 weeks later call from autoglass requesting that I take the car back for rechecking. Initially claimed they checked a small sample. Wasn’t keen as half hour drive to them. On further questioning they reluctantly admitted they had discovered one of there technicians was not doing the calibration correctly. Apparently mine was fine and didn’t need recalibrating if you can believe them.
  7. Looks like it’s the 2022 RAVs that are having the recall. Just checked my 2021 RAV and no recalls

    Tyre Advice

    Running at 1 , 2 or 3 psi above the recommended value assumes we all have accurate tyre pressure gauges. 33 psi on one gauge could be 35 psi on another. Does anyone get their gauge calibrated ? I’ve never done so. Tend to replace after a few years

    1st Service

    Just checked mine. Two entries. One listed as hybrid health check. The other listed as Maintenance. No mention of service. A vehicle delivery entry has also appeared which wasn’t there for the first year.
  10. Thanks for the explanation. Had assumed there would have been a deleted / moderated comment as you see with other forums ( or is it fora? )
  11. Has a reply to this topic been deleted ? Received an email saying there was a new reply but unable to see it.
  12. I didn’t get a pano roof but still no supplied space saver. Have always thought the main reason is cost saving. Inflation kit is a lot cheaper than a full size spare or even a space saver
  13. Must have changed the tyre width. My manual
  14. My HEV has 19” wheels but tyres are 225 not 235 . Did Toyota increase the width of the tyre with the 2022 models?
  15. Thanks. That explains it.
