  1. The logic I believe is for people who either want to feel like they are driving something "sporty" and for those not used to the CVT being just one gear and not having what normal upshifts are in other auto cars.
  2. Maybe and maybe not. The problem is such updates (if they exist) are dependent on the dealership staff having some level of intelligence. Best thing to do is to try and contact Toyota EU/Denmark and see if they can give you a direct yes/no answer and then getting back in touch with dealership. My dealership experience last year was them trying to charge more than service price listed on Toyota UK site and also not even knowing what android auto was and telling me to do map updates in september....
  3. I fully expect that as well. A lot of people going about as if its all over now but potentially worse than March is to come. Wait and see I guess is the way forwards...!
  4. Its unlikely I would be getting it now before my service early next year now. I dont plan to visit the delearship just for this (due to covid). My hope is when booking the service online it can be added to the service. That being said last year when I asked about it the lady on the service desk started talking about the satnav update (I didnt waste breath trying to explain just said ahh great)
  5. Good to see it on there...really looking forward to it!
  6. I will have to check mine now...Anyway I was never a fan of this piano black scratch magnet piece of trim. Another potential "look we've improved in face lift so please buy" type thing no doubt.
  7. I agree on the point of having it installed rather than using older hardware. Thats what I was trying to say. They've rectified it for 2020 and beyond but for year 1 of a new model sort of screwed the owners. Yes we knew what we were getting but weird decision on their part for year 1 vs going forward. Being cynical it might be so people stay on PCP get a newer model with it in....I plan on keeping the car at least 9 more years (or as long as I can before electrification is mainstream) So missing this function is particularly painful....
  8. Best to keep your expectations in check. It will probably either never come or be out in a few years. You need to consider that the fact they failed to have it as standard at the launch of a 2019 car model a good indicator of their in car entertainment priority and planning. At the end of the 2010's they have a model with early to mid 2010's in car entertainment system. Lack of USB ports and no USB Type C again demonstrates them being stuck in the past. Great car let down by poor software and technology planning inside!
  9. I think to be able to express some unhappiness between owners is fine though. Nothing wrong with a bit of moan. I've sent negative feedback in the survey I got after getting there car when they asked about certain features etc. I think a lot of people are unhappy because this feature standard on many manufacturers is years late with Toyota. They launched a new model(s) and missed the boat by not having it at the start. Yes theres COVID but even without the roll out of a feature (not even free!) is poorly communicated to customers and dealers alike. Yes we love our cars for the reliability, economy and comfort but Toyota/Lexus play it safe and late to the party with internal software. Something they need to work on but years of criticism in media and from motoring journalists hasn't changed it. Then again I remember the news story of the a Japanese politician in charge of IT/Internet related things who had never used or computer or owned one, so I do wonder if within the organisation the unchallenged head of systems within the cars is a similar type of person...
  10. Mine was also extended 3 months, which coinsides with being locked down at home...
  11. I've changed my settings so that rather than having to just unlock the car and have the car in my pocket/in the car it has to physically be used on the stop/start button. Not sure if true but boosting the signal to unlock the car would also allow them to drive away if you have the car set so that it just needs to be in the car, since they can perhaps boost the presence/range of the key.
  12. Could "Service" be referring to GPS/back end data services from Toyota as opposed to literal servicing? Seems to be on too many cars for it to be a missed reset surely? P.S I do not have the message.
  13. Take a look at this... https://www.thecarexpert.co.uk/new-car-warranty-servicing/
  14. I've been waiting to hear anything about this. I had my service a couple of weeks ago and the person on the service desk was brainless. I asked about the upgrade and got told its best to have "Satnav updates 6 weeks after the start of the tax year" (I kid you not, this was the response to my question about Android Auto and them having had a chance to look into it)

    MyT app

    I notice that if I just focus on driving the best way I can (not worrying about how the MyT will judge me for acceleration) I get higher mpg and a higher score on the app. If I drive thinking I'll get told off for accelerating too quickly etc and try and drive in a way that the app will be happy about I get lower mpg. I would love to know the logic the app uses for acceleration based judgement...
