  1. Ah so not quite the 360 degree system? But rather just a dash cam?
  2. Hi I bought a Kenwood DMX8020DABS. It has an input for a rear view camera which I've also bought. It also has an option for a front view camera. What's the point of having a front view camera ? Is it to properly see what's in front of the bonnet? Also how would it even engage automatically? With a rear view camera, it engages when you go into reverse and as far as I can see, there's some actual good use for the rear view camera. It makes parallel parking, reversing uphill a lot easier
  3. Alongside break fluid, I've also bought 1 x Bosch Aerotwin Ar24U Wiper Blade 1 x Bosch Aerotwin Ar13U Wiper Blade
  4. It has the stop start indeed. It's a 2011 Yaris. I actually know that one purely because I took photos of what I had already, and I thought that my battery was dying but really I hadn't driven it in a month
  5. Thanks. Tbh part of it is also me being able to reference this post to see what I need in the event of failure as that will eventually go. Air filters are also very cheap tbf
  6. Thanks. I've got a service kit from Toyota and it's like £42 for everything which is fantastic value!

I think that the cheapest sites are the ones I've listed. I may however be a little confused. I don't know how much I might necessarily need of the different things.
  8. Would this work? Given that you can't just add a stalk in there? https://www.bridgwater-electronics.co.uk/ap900c-cruise-control-unit-p110 It's apparently £300
  9. Ahhh thanks for that. I take it that means I have to get the Bridgford electronics one and not something cheap?
  10. Thanks for that. Could I get away with a stalk cruise control too? Or must I get it from Bridgeford electronics with a fully pledged system?
  11. Thanks. How about this? Car audio Centre have it for a bit cheaper given it comes with a Kensington camera so £650 all in (plus the fascia, relevant cables, etc..) https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-kenwood-car-audio-dmx8020dabs_p-42176.htm When I contacted caraudiodirect, I said these are my requirements: - wireless android auto - USB charging straight from the actual android auto product - Have the ability to attach a reversing camera into it - DAB/DAB+ radio functionality - As cheap as possible They then recommended the DMX8020DABS unit. I asked why not Pioneer? They said it doesn't support wireless Tbh it'd mean I'd sell my TomTom too especially as I already have a TomTom Go subscription for £13/year Would the Pioneer camera you linked to, be better than the Kenwood one? I'm not overly fussed about the speakers tbh too
  12. Hi, I'm thinking of getting Android Auto fitted: Kenwood DMX8020DABS 7" Screen Double Din DAB Radio Bluetooth Android Auto WIFI Wireless Apple CarPlay | Car Audio Direct Search results for: 'CT24TY22 CTSTY001 CTMULTI CT27AA78 DABA1' | Car Audio Direct It has an option for adding a reverse camera too. Apparently, none of the ones at Halford are compatible for my car EchoMaster Reversing Camera with Multi-View | Halfords UK That's echoed by what it says on the echomaster website (ie: no mention of a 2011 Toyota Yaris) Given this, does anyone know what I should buy regarding reverse cameras? I'm hoping to buy the above, a reversing camera and a cruise control kit. THen get an auto electrician to fit all them in at the same time as a one off cost. The car doesn't currently have a reversing camera.
  13. I'm not fond of the self charging hybrid claims too. I first saw this last year, and I was like "What's that?" Then I realised that it's marketing bs. They simply called them hybrids for years before that. They're not like EVs or even PHEVs
