  1. Thanks for that. Fingers crossed it’s actually solved it. Five for five connections since I’ve been doing that.
  2. It’s a 12 but I’ll give it a try and see if it makes any difference.
  3. I’ve been doing that, still seems hit and miss half the time it won’t connect to my phones personal hotspot.
  4. Thanks. I’ll have a look and see if I can turn it off.
  5. Just taken delivery of my new Prius Excel a couple of days ago, comes with built in Wi-Fi but that comes with no documentation or anything, so have no idea what the password is so can’t connect that way. No problem, I’ll just tether it to my phone as I’d done previously with my 2017 Excel. I can get it connected fine, all working, network has a star next to it so I’m assuming that means it’s a favourite? Anyway, all works fine, right up until I turn the engine off, then next time I get back in the car, it won’t auto-join the network, despite having been connected before, I have to manually search, join and input the password, each and every time! Same phone as I was using in the old Prius so would assume it’s an issue with the new car, rather than the phone, but open to all and any suggestions
  6. Think I’ve got the answer to No.1 Noticed it myself on the way to work this morning, no speed cameras anywhere in the vicinity, but each time when the beeps went, I noticed the lane deviation indicator light thing on the left hand side of the dash blinked on and off, so I’m pretty sure that’s what it is. On my previous 2017 Excel it used to make 3 different sounding beeps, never noticed if the light blinked, but pretty sure that’s what it is.

  8. Did you ever find an answer for No.3? Just took delivery of my Prius Excel yesterday, it also has the Wi-Fi box thing in the compartment between the two front seats. Like you, no instructions, when I go to network setup - Wi-Fi, it shows up in the available list, but I’ve no idea what the password is, because it came with no documentation that I could see. There’s a sticker on the top of the box with the name of it, which shows up on the screen and key a key which consists of about 7 or 8 numbers with an “a” somewhere in the middle, but nothing to indicate what the password is, so I can’t connect to it! I can connect the car via personal hotspot on my phone, which would be fine, except every time I switch off the engine, it forgets the phone network and I have to manually reconnect, which is a right pain! Great idea having a Wi-Fi Hotspot “built in” to the car, but pretty pointless if they don’t tell you how to connect to it.
