  1. Thanks again Lee, I managed to find everything that I wanted, not too difficult when you know where you are looking and familiarize yourself with things. Only thing missing is the woman shouting at me if I go to fast, it is now just a beep and the flashing speed limit sign.
  2. Thanks for that Lee, but the manual that I got with mine only goes up to page 237 so must be a different one, also I never got a navigation manual with mine, should I have got one with the 2020 model ? I never got one with my 2016 Prius either. If they are no supplied any more just online, can I buy one from Toyota ?
  3. Hi Professor, thanks for your reply, but the new model no longer has the blue illuminated buttons, it now has physical buttons and a different menu structure, maybe that why I can't find what I am looking for, I can't imagine that they would downgrade a newer system to have less functionality.
  4. I decided when I wanted to upgrade against the Hyundai Ioniq and stuck with Toyota and bought a 2020 Prius Excel with 15" wheels. Quite a difference in ride quality, much smoother and quieter. But I don't think that the Touch and Go does everything that the one in my 2016 Excel did. I'm sure that I used to be able to adjust the contrast and brightness on the reversing camera, can't find how to do it on the new one, also I don't get the woman telling me the speed limit if I am going to fast. Is there a menu to make these changes somewhere, I have tried for two days to find it with no luck and no mention of it in the handbook. Can someone tell me where I can find out where to do this or am I wasting my time because the new unit no longer has the facility to do this. I would be grateful for any help. Apart from that loving the new car.
  5. I have arranged a test drive in the Hyundai for Tuesday morning to make a final decision, but it will take a lot to make me switch allegiance from Toyota.
  6. I would Jay but I don't have a garage or a drive only a designated parking space away from my house, so nowhere to charge it unfortunately.
  7. Jay, I get what you say about the reliability and proven record of the Prius drivetrain, the Hyundai has only been going for a couple of years, I have not looked on their forum to see what problems owners have had. Don't get me wrong I love my Prius, just that I am going to upgrade and was just looking at the options, having sat in the Hyundai I am pretty sure that I will stay with the Prius, though I may go for a test drive just to confirm my thoughts. Jay you are right about the Hypersonic red, and with the cool grey interior looks great. I just wish that Toyota would improve their Touch 2 infotainment system looks very dated compared to some others. Thanks for all your replies and thoughts.👍
  8. Hi Mike, Yes I did look at the Corolla but I think that it is only available in the base model, I like my toys 😊.The Hyundai has got a very nice dual clutch electronic gearbox with flappy paddles that can be used for gear changes or in low speed can be used to increase or decrease regenerative braking,but takes a slight hit on MPG, it also has a better infotainment screen and system. but as Autocumulus says knowing Toyota is an advantage since I have had four prius's .( Is that a word ?) Decisions, decisions. 🤔
  9. Hi, I am upgrading my Gen 4 Prius in the next month and went to look at the latest model in the dealership, some improvements, styling, larger wireless charger, white plastics gone. But then I saw a comparison with the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid on YouTube. I went to the dealership to have a look and was impressed, it is cheaper but is built to a high spec. Has anyone else looked at the Hyundai whilst thinking of upgrading their Prius, if so what did you think ? I am still undecided Thanks for any opinions.
  10. Hi Professor, That did the trick, thanks very much for your help.
  11. I have a Gen 4 Excel and at the weekend I updated my system to 6.12.OH which went surprisingly smoothly though taking a while. But since the update whenever I start the car I get a message saying charges will be incurred if you continue, with two buttons one to continue and one to cancel. I used to get this message in random areas on my commute not every time that I started the car. Does anyone know how to disable this message I have looked through all the menus and cannot find anything. I would be grateful for any help or advice with this.
  12. Thanks for the reply Pete, I am hoping that I will have the same experience with my dealer as you did with yours.😊
  13. Just phoned the dealership and they need to look at it to see if it is a fault with the mechanism or something that I have done. If it is decided that the mechanism is faulty it is covered under the warranty. Just out of curiosity has any one else had this problem, just nice to know if it is a common fault.
  14. Good idea Frosty, I pass the dealership on the way home from work might just drop in.
  15. My extending boot cover for my Gen 4 Prius has decided not to retract any more, I have tried everything to fix it aside from taking it apart. Has anyone else had this problem and managed to fix it. If I can't repair it I am hoping that it is covered under the 5 year warrenty.
