  1. Why not fasten the seatbelt around the luggage, with bonus of stopping the luggage getting airborne if you have to stop quickly?
  2. The wonders of modern technology. Fitted a choke at either end of the rear camera cable and problem solved. I suspect the differences that are being experienced are down to varying signal strengths around the country as DAB Is either good or bad with no gradual deterioration like FM.
  3. I have an Excel TS with Nextbase 522GW + rear camera hardwired to fusebox under the glove box using the 12v outlet fuse. The rear camera cable runs down the right hand side of the car above doors into and into the tailgate via the right hand rubber duct then to the camera fitted to the top centre of the rear window. Dab and FM are almost unusable unless in very good signal areas unless I disconnect the rear camera at the main unit. I am in the process of fitting ferrite chokes to the rear camera cable but have not been out for a test drive yet. I’ll report back with progress soon.
  4. My 2020 Excel TS came with the spare wheel as standard. I collected it in January. All spec shown the web and described by the dealer were as delivered except the spare, web said TRK.
  5. Having just changed from 2017 Passat,which had all the fancy digital displays,to a 2020 Corolla I can’t understand the level of criticism. Alright the graphics are a bit old but the system itself works just as well. The radio works, music plays and the satnav gets me to where’re I want it to. The satnav is just as easy to use and you can get all the google stuff, which was removed from my Passat after 3 years, not be replaced.
  6. I had this after I had installed the OTA update. I decided to look on the web version of MyT and it said ‘already purchased’ but also gave me the option to download again or select a region or the the full version to usb stick. Download was only a few minutes but install was about 70 minutes but simple.
  7. Same for me. Far easier than the 17 plate VW Passat, that could take several attempts to complete successfully.

    MyT app

    Likewise. I contacted Toyota and they told that it was sorted but that you need to drive the car to recover any missing trips. It now seems to ok.
  9. I think that this it is normal for ACC systems not to react to already stationary vehicles, the last three VW’s that I have had were just the same. They had very clear warnings in the manual.
  10. Hi Jack Spratt It is a CHOETECH T513-S. It measures 12cm x 7cm. I use it with an iPhone XR and it sits nicely and phone charges without having to fiddle about lining it up on the charger
  11. You can use a usb 2 way splitter in the under dash port. This works fine for 2 usb discs or for a disc and music on a phone but Apple Play will not work through any splitter I have on any car I have had. I don’t know about Android Phones. I have a WiFi charger permanently plugged into the armrest port which is kept in under dash phone slot.

    MyT app

    The fuel icon showing % fuel remaining is on the Car page.
  13. I thought by that my RSA was doing the same but today, in a place where some new 40 signs were put up last night, it detected them and displayed correctly. However, after a few hundred yards it changed back to the old 50 limit but picked up the next 40 repeater and remained correct until the end of the limit.

    MyT app

    Further to my last. If I open MyT from the app icon I normally use I get a non-hybrid version but opening it direct from the App Store it works correctly. Has there been an update that my phone has not picked up? I’ll try a reinstall and let you know what happens.
