  1. Hi Tintin, Looks like we have identical models and age. I'll drop Toyota an email not that they have ever been of any use to me. The manual says that drive off auto door locking can be activated by your dealer my dealer says not on this model.
  2. No tried that, head volume is at full, only way is down.
  3. Unless I'm missing something the Incoming phone volume level is too low and I cant find a way to change it. Found the mic audio out volume setting but not the incoming level. Its not controlled by the main volume control or the steering wheel control, how strange!!
  4. Not having any brake lights on is just the same as putting the car into park, or are you saying put the car into park and keep your foot on the brake pedal?
  5. I think that my original post has been misconstrued. By default with your seat belt on, pressing the hold button activates this feature. When sufficient foot brake pressure is applied the car switches to hold mode, all brakes activated, brake lights on. This mode is equivalent to park but the driver did not have to move the gear selector. Now for the change to make HWC people happy, after one second of brake lights on they are extinguished automatically. And yes I have had eye operations, a trabeculectomy and glaucoma. The DLVA are interested in these medical conditions in my case, the rules are here https://glaucoma.uk/care-support/driving-with-glaucoma/ even driving with only one eye is permissible.
  6. It may be the norm but as far as blinding your fellow road users are concerned it is totally irresponsible and down to the car manufactures to comply with the UK High Way Code.
  7. It is not a design error. Design errors are events that were not intended. The software needs to be reprogrammed, foot on brake = brake lights on, is hold engaged Y/N Y= illuminate dash hold indicator, activate timer, after 1 second extinguish brake lights. Simples
  8. How true Rosgoe and in fact the high way code has to be, by nature so complex and different than when you and I passed our test. The question is, why have Toyota decided to go against the UK High Way Code?? Also how many of you in the forum are guilty of blinding the driver behind you?
  9. "in future will just keep my foot on the brake pedal" Sorry but your missing the point. The hold control has the same as keeping your foot on the brake pedal, brake lights will be on blinding the driver behind.
  10. I have searched the forum without any success regarding brake hold control function. Just emailed Toyota with the same comment. The brake hold control when activated turns the brake lights on. This is one of my pet hates, being blinded by the vehicle in front, the driver keeping his/her foot on the brake pedal instead of applying the hand brake. In fact the highway code says:- 114 You must not use any lights in a way which would dazzle or cause discomfort to other road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders use front or rear fog lights unless visibility is seriously reduced. You must switch them off when visibility improves to avoid dazzling other road users (see Rule 226). In stationary queues of traffic, drivers should apply the parking brake and, once the following traffic has stopped, take their foot off the footbrake to deactivate the vehicle brake lights. This will minimise glare to road users behind until the traffic moves again. Law RVLR reg 27
  11. Do Toyota have a "Wish my car had this" wish list URL? If so I wish I could find it!!
  12. Found it https://www.tomsguide.com/uk/face-off/google-maps-vs-waze
  13. I really need a URL link as this web site has tons of stuff to wade through.
  14. Very good question. I have at present unlimited calls and data but considering changing from TalkTalk to Vodafone simply because TT have a rubish signal at my home. I guess I will need 10GB of data per month but being retired means limited outings using SatNav. The answer depends upon your own SatNav useage, once a week, once a month or every day!!
  15. Hi Ian You kept your loaf of bread quiet. What brand was it?
  16. Your a star Geoff, Thank You. Just goes to show how effective this forum can be. Loaf of bread is now history, no more crumbs
  17. Are you guys telling me that I'm the only one with loaf of bread fastened to rear of a Corolla 🍞
  18. Mine is the Estate. Lowered boot floor is much better. No bread crumbs, is this a firmware issue? Try as much as possible my WiFi signal (to get updates) will not allow the car to connect unless I'm mad enough to dive it through a brick wall next to the router.
  19. Waze Sat Nav is the answer, you can also see who's birtday party allows gate crashers.
  20. Hello All, My first post on this forum. My Toyota Corolla (E21) 1.8 Hybrid is outsanding in every way, except for the Sat Nav and dreaded bred crumb trail. Px'ed my C220 Merc AMG estate and am not disappointed. Just wish the Sat Nav was as good. Can't see any way of killing the bread crumb trail.
