  1. You could well be right. After going into settings to check out which version I was running, things improved dramatically when I exited the settings menu. Everything started working again as it should apart from, now I have to touch the lower edge of each digit/letter instead of directly on it.
  2. Thanks for the reply but it hasn’t been updated for a couple of years and has been absolutely fine up until a month or 2 ago so don’t think it’s a bug, it’s either something failing (like the touchscreen itself) or the software has gone corrupted somehow and needs a reinstall or something similar. Have tried a cold reboot by disconnecting the battery for a while but to no avail, might try to reinstall the last software/map update it had but there’s no way I am wasting money on another update if it’s not functioning correctly. Will post version when I have had a look. UPDATE. software version is 6-11-0wh map 2018 v1
  3. I have a 2015 RAV4 with Touch2 with go (plus, I think) that just recently has become very difficult to input postcodes and addresses. I think the problem is with the touchscreen itself. When I get to around the 3rd digit of the postcode, sometimes it bleeps but does not input the digit, sometimes no bleep and no digit, sometimes will go in after multiple touches and then jumps to the next screen with a short, incorrect, postcode. Anybody had anything similar? Any possible fixes? (Sat Nav works fine once I manage to get an address in) Many thanks.
  4. Had the vehicle for 6 years and not had a problem before so it’s not anything I am doing. Something definitely gone wrong with it, need to know if there’s an easy fix for it or if anyone else has had the same problem. Not worth spending a fortune on it if it needs a replacement, will try a reinstall of the last software and map update that I have, I think. p.s. Does the same thing for the wife as well, hers in the Yaris (touch with go) is no problem at all.
  5. Yes, when I can get that far. Sometimes won’t even get as far as the the space. Only started doing it in the last month or two, had the vehicle since it was 6 months old.
  6. I have a RAV4 2015 with “touch 2 with go” and just recently it has become a nightmare to input postcodes and addresses. Everything appears to work for the first 2 or 3 digits then stalls on the next digit. Sometimes the digit bleeps but doesn’t enter, sometimes does nothing, sometimes might go in after 2 or 3 touches. Absolute pain in the backside and I am not going to update my map if it’s not working right. Once I eventually manage to get it entered (can take 20 minutes, or give up trying) the sat nav function fine. All other touchscreen functions seem to work ok. Any ideas? I have tried rebooting by disconnecting the battery for a short while but was still the same. Thanks.
  7. Many thanks Geoff, had a feeling they might be smaller but hard to see them down the tubes. Will have to treat myself to a 14 mm plug socket.
  8. Can anyone tell me if the spark plugs on a 1.33 Yaris (09 vintage) are a strange size? My usual 5/8 (16mm) clip on socket doesnt seem to want to fit, maybe it's just too thick in the wall and isnt going fully down? Just wanted to pop one out to see what has been fitted. Many thanks.
  9. Phew ! All is well, the wife likes it :D Collected it yesterday as planned and she's been out with it today .She hadn't even seen it until last night, just left it to me. That way I get the blame if it's not right.
  10. I always like to fill to the max mark when cold. There is plenty of expansion room above the max mark to allow for expansion. Maybe that's what the Toyota guys are doing too?
  11. Guess from the lack of response that they don't have any common faults. Here's looking forward to years of trouble free motoring.
  12. Just bought a 1.33 Tr with 11000miles on the clock (2009, 09 plate) just 3 years old. Are there any known issues or problems that I need to look out for? Many thanks in advance. P.S. it's a manual (6 speed petrol)
  13. Have taken the plunge, just bought a 09 1.33 TR with only 11000miles on the clock. Collect it Thursday morning.
  14. Many thanks for the replies folks, much appreciated. I think we will go for a 58 plate 1.3 at the local Toyota dealership. Just waiting for a price on a Corsa 1.2 (local VX dealer) but am leaning towards the Yaris. Thanks again all.
  15. I am looking to change my wifes ageing Nissan Micra and was thinking about the Yaris as a good next motor (needs a 5 door not a 3). However, I have heard/read some downs to the later models of the Yaris so hopefully you guys can put me right. The info I have says :- that the earlier ones (pre 06) are better than the later ones. The 06 on 1.3 suffers from clutch/transmission issues and one I'm not sure that I like, the later 1.33 (6 speed) has stop start technology. Is this a good thing? does this not cause extra starter motor wear etc.? is it something that can be switched off? Any help/comments would be appreciated. If the Yaris is as good as my 02 Avensis, it will be no bother at all. Many thanks for any help. P.S. it's the Yaris v Corsa v Fiesta v Micra at the mo.
