  1. Does anyone else get incorrect instructions from their Navigation system when there are roadworks in the area? I have a 2019 Corolla Design with 2020v2 map update and it seems to be worse then ever. I came back from the East Coast yesterday and it kept trying to send me on roundabout diversions in the wrong direction. Roads kept showing as blocked when they weren't and I got constant "perform a U turn where possible" commands. On the way there, 2 days previously it kept trying to divert me from the A46 Lincoln bypass into the centre of Lincoln, even when I was well past the centre and approach
  2. Yes, thank you for your help. Toyota have advised that there is currently a stock shortage of this colour touch up but it is available. Part number for anyone else looking for it is PW865-0D100-D5.
  3. Does anyone know if Scarlet Flare touch up paint (3U5) is available? I haven't asked the dealer yet but an eBay seller that supplies any colour paint from the 3 digit code has told me that it is a 4 stage colour and will require 4 bottles of paint to touch up a chip!!! I have never heard of this before and find it difficult to believe they cannot provide a pearlescent red touch up pen.
  4. Map update to 2019v1 completed in 63 minutes. Just out of interest, while sitting in the car watching it I found a Pre Delivery Inspection Checksheet in the glove compartment. One of the items reads "Check for latest map version and update if necessary". It wasn't ticked, neither was anything else on the sheet so you have to wonder whether anything else was missed during the PDI...
  5. Thank you - I suppose I should have thought of that really but I am sure I followed Toyota's instructions! Good job I wasn't in a hurry. EDIT: Yes, just checked the instructions:- Step 3: "Extract this content of the downloaded ZIP file to the main folder root of your USB stick and safely remove the USB stick from your PC when the extraction is complete"
  6. I wish mine was. After getting a "There is an error, please try later" message on the website I eventually managed to "purchase" and download the update at around 4Mbps so it took the best part of an hour to download on my 100Mbps Virgin fibre connecion. The extract to USB took around 1 hr 50 minutes (11.2Gb) to a new formatted16Gb Kingston Data Traveller 3 USB flash drive so who knows how long it will take to update the car!!
  7. I ordered mine on 16th June and was told that delivery would be "September/October". It arrived at the dealers on 16th July and I collected it on 25th. Be prepared for a possible early arrival...
  8. Thanks Lee, that is exactly what I wanted to know. I have ordered a 16GB USB memory stick for the upgrade as all mine are too small. (Shows my age!)
  9. I have read right through this thread but cannot quite understand whether this update is required on my brand new Corolla Design HSD. The navdb version displayed in the Software Update screen is A36.4 and not in the 201XvX format. My Toyota is offering the 2019v1 update but I don't want to break it! Does anyone know what version A36.4 is please?
  10. I am interested to know this as well. My understanding was that the 2.0 Design hatch was not available with a spare wheel. My dealer said there was no room for it but was wrong on other things. I ordered the 1.8 Design hatch with pan roof and no cost spare wheel option.
  11. Must depend on trim level. The manual refers to both keyless and key switch starts so perhaps it is only the Excel models are keyless?
  12. 64 plate Excel Hybrid with keyless start as standard
  13. Can you remove the spring from the arm then refit it after it is reassembled? The spring is probably there to apply pressure from the blade on to the rear screen.
  14. I would not use that inverter in your car as the wiring / fuse is not up to it. Power outlet is fused at 15 amps - the inverter is rated at 20 amps. Result blown fuse - simples! Much safer to use 12v or USB charger for things like phones.
  15. Have you checked if the socket works when the ignition is on? On mine the ignition has to be on for the accessory socket to work. You said it stopped working when you parked so I just wondered...
