  1. I think what bewA a is saying is you have to have cruise control on and then give a burst from the throttle, ease off accelerator and let it power through the cruise limit. I vaguely recall this happening a few weeks back. I think bewA is right about what is happening but the tolerance on this alarm is tight. I can on some roads that an not excessively hilly get 6 alarms in 2 miles without touching the accelerator. It can only mean the cruise control is not that good!
  2. Thanks for info. It starts to make some sense. But if i disable RSA it never makes the 4 beeps!
  3. Thanks for your comment. Will change my speedo display and see what happens. Your explanation is similar to one offered by the garage when i first reported the problem. However the 1,3 or 5 over speed settings seem to have no effect. Also i started calling out the cruise speed, speed limit and actual speed to record on the dashcam. And the were all within the limits. It also happens uphill, downhill and along flat. Video clip it was flat as a pancake at 30mph I have also had it happen with standard cruise control as well. Anyway will try with alternate display. Thanks
  4. When i first got the car there were lots of beeps and bongs. Slowly over a few weeks i was able to reduce them or make them less sensitive using the setup options. BUT i have one annoying sound. It 4 bongs with no indication on the dash. It happens when cruise control is set and RSA is on. It happens at certain geographic locations 60% of the time. The dealer (despite seeing it whilst they drove the car) and toyota have no idea what is causing it!!!!! The have said 4 weeks ago they will update satnav to latest version to see if that cures it but they can't provide an update as the update service is not working and dont know when it will be fixed. TOYOTA CERTAINLY KNOW HOW NOT TO INSTILL CONFIDENCE IN ITS CUSTOMERS!
  5. Yes i have the same option installed! I think its called SFT (Self Camouflage Tailgate ). But you will find that it also has facility to tell you when you need to wash the tailgate. Its incorporated in the gear shift. When you select reverse the display shows like a wet mist on the screen. For some reason if you wipe the little glass eyeball on the tailgate the mist disappears but the car tailgate remains dirty.😎
  6. Have you checked your car to make sure its not morphed into a Lexus😉
  7. Thanks Jiff Looks like there could be a Toyota problem. Disappointing to know they have such a problem and its taking weeks to fix!
  8. Please don't hijack this topic with costs and availability of apple car play. The topic is Toyota UK unable to provide software update for new 2019 Corolla hybrid
  9. Wanted to get my 2019 Corolla Hybrid Excel sat nav system software updated as I am experiencing a number of annoying issues. Booked in to local UK dealer two weeks ago and after they had had it for 2 days they said there was a problem with the Toyota UK server and they could not download the update. They said it was a national Toyota problem and Toyota were unable to tell them when the problem would be resolved! Have rang the dealer since and they are still unable to get access to the download. They still have no fix date from toyota. Anyone else experienced this? Is it really a Toyota problem or dealer problem? Have you had a dealer update recently?
  10. Problem solved (i think) After uninstalling and reinstalling Bluetooth connection on car and phone cleared the Bluetooth memory as follows In your APPS click on Settings Select Apps Click on 3dots at top right of screen Click on Show system apps Scroll down and click on Bluetooth Click on Storage Click on CLEAR CACHE Click on CLEAR DATA The use back key repeatedly to get you back to you normal menu. Seems ok after several days use
  11. Glad to hear your relationship with Corolla has been sealed😎
  12. Tried uninstalling on phone and car. Power both down then pair car and phone. Also when pairing selecting no text messages. No joy
  13. My 2019 corolla hybrid excel is having problems using Bluetooth to connect to my Samsung s7. Quite regularly it seems to drop the Bluetooth connection displaying phone disconnected and then reconnect automatically. This interrupts the call but the phone line remains connected. Telephone conversation is impossible. Any one else experiencing this regular occasional dropout.
  14. I have the hatchback 2L version. Best trip from on-board display was 58.1mpg over 150miles mixed driving. 100miles dual carriageway and 30 miles urban and 20 miles hills. Recorded all petrol and miles and over 1700 miles averaged 54mpg from new. Seems to be improving slowly but that could be due to adapting my driving style to the new car. I have a theory that seems to be showing best driving style as ECO for urban and hills then use NORMAL for dual carriage way and motorways. Will update theory after a few more trips.
  15. Now there is an opportunity for an aftermarket wiggle device to make it hands free😏
