  1. Apologies, I hoped the article would appear ‘unlocked’ so to speak. I already subscribe.
  2. I’m not sure if this is allowed but here https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/the-clarkson-review-toyota-gr-yaris-9cmq6kg6k is a review of the GR Yaris from Sundays Sunday Times magazine. (Best ignore the early comments about the ‘basic’ Yaris...it is a Clarkson review !).
  3. Not sure about the Yaris GR, but in the absence of a service book the independent is very unlikely to have access to the online service recording system.
  4. Is there a way to aututune the DAB stations on this head unit ? I rarely use DAB, preferring FM, but I’m trying to pickup Virgin Radio. I’ve looked online and I ought to be able to receive it in my area but it doesn’t appear to be in the ‘List’ that are already tuned.
  5. I presume you mean a light that shows the ‘alarm’ is activated ? I’m pretty sure the Yaris doesn’t have either.
  6. Following a recommendation on another manufacturer forum I bought some Gummi Pflege from Amazon .... works really well on rubber seals and window surrounds. https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/sonax-gummipflege-rubber-treatment-stick https://www.amazon.co.uk/nextzett-91480615-Rubber-Stick-White/dp/B004B8GTQG/ref=sr_1_7?crid=14AS4VY6M1KGF&dchild=1&keywords=gummi+pflege&qid=1610201615&sprefix=Gummi%2Caps%2C194&sr=8-7
  7. Regarding “the tpms button” ...whilst I agree completely, and having a severely arthritic knee I have no chance of getting down there, I would say, as a general thought, the layout of all minor controls in the Yaris is a bit of a ‘dogs breakfast’. The auto headlight switch, lane departure etc button off to the right... The EV etc buttons down by the handbrake .... These are all over the car, as if added as after thoughts, and are difficult to operate without taking your eyes of the road if only momentarily.
  8. My last two cars were Yetis, funnily enough. When I considered a replacement for the last, initially, I looked at a run out model (Yeti discontinued, Kodiaq too big now) BUT if you ‘look on the internet....’ there appear to be significant problems with DSG gearboxes !! Yet from my experience, I loved the DSG gearbox so, initially was concerned moving to an ecvt ! The internet is a strange place ! Decided to downsize, fancied getting into ‘hybrid’ technology so looked at Yaris. I’m isolating to a large extent but do go out, many journeys are short but I give battery state
  9. I’m not sure that’s true ? My understanding is that hybrids are more attractive, since the catalyst is likely to be less polluted, but not completely ‘safe’. However, certainly for the hybrid Yaris the catalytic converter is part of the manifold, so is far more difficult to remove compared to other Toyotas.
  10. Any chance you could try with another phone ? See if the problem ‘disappears’ ?
  11. According to the page in the infotainment manual I posted above, file compatibility is limited to mp3/WMA/AAC .
  12. Apologies for interrupting, @snowBALLs, but can you tell me where you ordered these LED internal bulbs from ? Presumably, internal lights don’t affect CANBUS ?
  13. I wonder if “.....but only when it’s speaking ..” means, literally, just that ? You ere trying to adjust the “test voice” and maybe that’s not what Toyota mean. I assume you’ve tried adjusting navigation voice as it is “speaking “ via HU or SW ?
  14. Is any of this of any help .... Not really my area of expertise but these are the relevant pages from the user manual.... Sorry they are screen shots but didn’t know how else to add them ...
