  1. I didn't see any other makes when I was looking (there was one other that isn't available - think it was a croud fund thingy). I did find similar things that are designed to work with an aftermarket head unit that runs on Android, rather than an OEM one that is android auto compatible. For these you install an app on the head unit (like you do on your phone) so that the little box works.
  2. So I got fed up of waiting for UK supply chains and ordered a Motorola MA1 from the states via ebay. This allows wireless android auto and now I just get in the car, put my phone on the wireless charge pad (if going a longer distance) and the phone connects to android auto automatically. No need to plug anything in. I have stuck the motorola gizmo to the underside of the dash above the USB port, you cant tell its there. I have had a message once saying it had diconnected and had to unplug it and plug it back in - but has been working fine apart from that one off event. Only other thing was I had to change my phone case to a slightly thinner one to have reliable wireless charging.
  3. Can you tell me where in the app I can see if the car is locked?
  4. Response from Toyota (great service) Hi Chris, Thank you for your email, I'm sorry you're experiencing issues with the app. This feature is only available to our testing and preview environment, this should not be visible in the released app and we are working on removing this feature as it is causing issues with the app. The is being worked on as a priority and will be removed from the app shortly, in the meantime I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you are still experiencing issues with the app please delete and re-download. Thank you for your patience and for contacting Toyota. Kind regards, Amar
  5. Agreed, ability to check if car is locked and remote lock would be good. But for now... The option no longer appears for me (but same app version still)
  6. Mine is version.... general_version 4.9.0 (30140) What version have you guys got? I have messaged Toyota to ask for help and will report back.
  7. My t was just updated and I now have a button for remote park. Unfortunately app crashes and closes eveytime I push the new button (android phone). What does this exiting new button actually do!!??
  8. I have a range of 42 miles when fully charged, doesn't seem to change if it's cold or very cold, I might have to invest in less heavy right shoe!
  9. Spoke too soon, phone just rebooted itself at random so might have been that! Working again now! Perhaps also a PICNIC moment (Problem In Chair Not In Computer)
  10. Anyone else having issues this morning (4th Feb 0745) with the toyota app, I am stuck on 0% "just a moment, we are receiving your data"
  11. Thanks guys, I regulary find that turning the climate on through the app takes 20 secs or so, but like Nick said, it always happens. Ernie, I am 95% sure I can turn on the remote the climate through the app whilst it is charging. Maybe my issues have been a little server glitch but will keep an eye on it!
  12. Anyone else having issues recently with remote climate control. When trying to turn on I get a message saying error, the climate control cannot be switched on or off. Ensure all the doors of the car are closed properly and try again. If i use the key, to turn on climate, it works fine, and then the app will work as normally to turn it off and on All the doors are closed, the car locks, all interior lights go off as normal, remote key AC works fine - which makes me think it is the app / servers that have the issue rather than the car. Its so inconvenient not being able to turn your car heat on without having to open the front door and press the button (also cant set front demist on!) - I know a 1st world problem eh!
  13. These are 3 small chips so hopefully won't be that noticable with a dob of paint on! Thanks for the reply, I might have to wait and get your feedback when it warms up on how the 218 matches!!
  14. Ah thanks, I assumed that would just have shown the main colour of the car! Will look when it has warmed up outside!
