  1. I know a lot of complaints on the Skoda Yeti about higher spec models having lager tyres and i know a number of dealers got an agreement from Skoda UK to do special builds for a number of customers with downgraded size wheels, as they would have lost the sale without it.

    map update

    On https://www.toyota.co.uk/ when you go to My Toyota, then MY Vehicles,click on your Rav4 and then you should see the below. Make sure that the Device is correct. Mine is: once you download the zipped file and unzip it The files once unzipped should look like this Folder: FMU Contents: FMU_PONB7E_1.iso FMU_PONB7E_2.iso FMU_PONB7E_3.iso FMU_PONB7E_4.iso hope this helps.
  4. looks good, what kit is that?
  5. There appears to be 2 message streams running on this subject, the other one has an update of October 2020. Is it worth Merging these 2 togother
  6. Is the home screen satnav, still stuck at always pointing north?
  7. hi Devon, I have an Icon with Optional SatNav, I was told by the dealer that this can have the AA/CP update when it becomes available. Can you clarify if this is indeed the case. Thanks
  8. this is my biggest gripe with the home screen when you have satnav. A: you cannot remove it and is always present. B: sat Nav points North and not direction of Travel, which wouldn't be an issue if you could remove it from the home screen Hey ho.

    Battery mode

    Hi, i suspect that it is working correctly, it will stay in Battery mode based on a number of variables. eg, gentle acceleration, level ground, temperature, etc. Based on your signature location being cumbria, it might be functioning correctly based on hill roads. hope that helps
  10. Thanks, downloading it now.

    Not starting

    Hi all, have a look at https://blog.toyota.co.uk/coronavirus-toyota-hybrid-car-maintenance Toyota are advising the following, hope this helps ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The reassuring news is that no difficult car maintenance is necessary. However, there are some tips that, if followed, can help ensure your Toyota remains in tip-top condition during an extended layoff. To recap, Toyota hybrids generally contain two batteries: a 12-volt battery (which powers systems such as the headlamps and audio) and a high-voltage hybrid system battery (which supplies the power to start the combustion engine and drive the electric motors). The simplest way to maintain charge in both of these batteries is to simply go through the normal start procedure: press the ‘Start’ button with your foot on the brake and ensure the ‘Ready’ light is illuminated on the dashboard (you don’t have to keep your foot on the brake thereafter, but ensure your vehicle’s transmission is in ‘Park’ and the parking brake is engaged). We recommend you put the car in ‘Ready’ mode for about 60 minutes before switching it off again and repeat the process at least once a week, providing you can carry out this procedure while adhering to the government’s advice regarding social distancing and Coronavirus (Covid-19). Please do not leave your car unattended when it is in ‘Ready’ mode. During the time that that car is in ‘Ready’ mode, you may hear and feel the internal combustion engine kick in; this is a normal part of the self-charging process. You might be tempted to switch on the radio to pass the time, or turn on other systems, but bear in mind these will consume small amounts of electrical power so it is preferable to leave them off. Ensure the handbrake is on; there’s no need to go for a drive, although we must stress that this procedure should take place in a well-ventilated area – something to consider if you park your vehicle in a garage.
  12. Morning, Can you advise what issues you where seeing with the Sat Nav, that prompted the New Firmware. As for the Issues with the Call <name> sounds like a software fault if it was working fine prior to the update. Does other voice commands work, like "Go home" for example.
  13. HI, just noticed that you have netting on this recess, I've got a plastic bar. Was this standard or have you changed it?
