  1. I feel the one in the rear is too quiet, even with the audio turned down it is difficult to hear.
  2. When reversing the rear parking sensor beeper is quite quiet compared to the front one, has anyone else noticed this?
  3. Can I ask where in relation to the mirror did you place you 380GW? The dealer I got my Corolla from put one of these in as part of a deal they were doing, only problem is they have placed it on the passengers side but just outside of the wiper sweep so when it is raining or on a cold morning when the windscreen is misted on the outside the camera cannot see anything due to said rain or mist. It is going back in for them to move it but they were talking about just lowering it on the screen that would make it almost in the middle. I want them to move it nearer to the mirror where the wiper goes higher up the screen. Just interested how far from the top of the screen and horizontally from the mirror you have positioned yours?
  4. Matus, works fine while moving, when I first connected it a file was downloaded and installed on my phone but apart from that just the app itself. Used it yesterday without a problem, and a nice interface to use.
  5. Had an email from Sygic (sat nav app) that it was now Mirrorlink compatible, connected my phone to the car system via a USB cable and all is working great. I prefer Sygic to the Toyota satnav system, nicer looking interface and I have been using it for quite a few years and paid for the worldwide version, it uses TomTom maps (all free) and having done a few fly-drive holidays it saves renting a satnav in the country you are visiting. There is a one off charge for the Mirrorlink access (it's on a free 10 day trial currently), but I might wait as they often have sales and it might be reduced in price.
  6. For the temperature access the settings screen on the dashboard display using the steering wheel buttons and find units, it should be in there. Page 129 of the full manual (download from web required).
  7. I have a problem with mine that is in another thread. When listening to music on a USB, if a Traffic Announcement (TA) comes on you get Cancel and Continue on the screen, if you press Cancel nothing happens and the TA continues. Wish they had what my wife's 2018 Aygo and some of my previous cars (3 Yaris), to cancel a TA just press Mode switch on the steering wheel, it cancels the TA and goes back to what the system was doing. I have reported it to Toyota UK but they don't think there is a problem, I have managed to video it twice and am going to send them both.
  8. It seems the update won't be available until sometime in the Autumn, October was mentioned!

    Map update

    Ian, if you do this in the future, extract the file to a folder on your PC or MAC then copy it to the USB! Extracting a large file like this on a USB will take a long time as compared to the hard drive on your computer they are really slooooooow.
  10. Standard 32Gb USB 2 FAT 32, files are .mp3 format arranged in folders, one for each album. Standard tags for files with track number, song title etc. Don't put all the files in one folder as the system can only handle a maximum of 255 files per folder, maximum number of folders is 3000, maximum total files is 9999.
  11. Well have spoken too soon, got in the car this morning and when you select the Navigation screen the system is back to 2D North, went through the Setup and changed it to 3D. Later on drove again and back to 2D North again. As I said earlier it seems to change as it sees fit, will have to wait until the forecast fix comes out in the Autumn.

    Stop Sat Nav

    You have to Delete the destination! In the Navigation screen, press the three dots ... , press Route, then press Delete, this will stop the navigation. Note it does not delete it from your Favourites if that was where it was selected from. Same system as the new Corolla.

    Map update

    On mine which is post-update under Setup, General, Software update, it lists the version against - navdb_version as 2019v1. I would have thought that the system would not install an item that was not required (assuming Toyotas software engineers got it right of course).
  14. I had the same problem, did the map update the other day and apart from the first time I used it after the update it has stayed in 3D view! Bite the bullet and do the update and hopefully that will cure it.
  15. A couple of weeks ago I did a two hour journey, nothing much on the radio so I plugged in my USB music stick to listen to that. Whilst using the Navigation system a TA on FM cut in, as it was not for the area I was in I pressed the on-screen Cancel button and nothing happened, the TA carried on, I had to press the Audio button, Continue then Source, select USB then press the Map button to get back to where I was. Most annoying and not very safe having to make so many selections! On my three Yaris I had you only had to press the Mode button on the steering wheel to cancel a TA and go back to what the system was doing before, this is also the same for my wife's 2018 Aygo (I know it's a different system). You would think they would make systems with similar functionality the same. Anyway bottom line is the on-screen Cancel button does nothing in this situation, I reported it to Toyota UK but they claim there is no problem and if it persists to go to the dealer. I managed to get it on video this morning on my way to work (I pulled over in a layby). 20190731_071947.mp4
