    Not a lot of choice, of bulbs or price. A few owners on here said the Toyota ones were an improvement. There are plenty of cheaper bulbs on eBay, but no numbers listed to check up on what exactly they are. I’ll report back in a week. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hybrid long term?

    The good thing is that Toyota has been selling hybrids for over 20 years. You still see the older generation 2 Prius cars on the road. The generation 2 are over 10 years. 300,000 miles have been clocked up by some before the batteries were needing replacement. Out family has bought 3 second hand hybrids. All have felt like new. Until electric cars are practical enough for then I’ll stick to hybrid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sat Nav installed by Toyota or use a TomTom (orphone!)

    The newer Toyota sat nav’s are upto the job compared to older versions. Before my present car, I had used both a TomTom device and then a smartphone. The cheapest option is the smartphone, but needs to be on charge. The TomTom type device still needs plugging in. It’s more of a convince / cost battle. The built in is more expensive and is always lagging behind with updates, but no cables. The other 2 you have the option to place the device where it suits you best. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    2017 PHEV battery degradation

    My take on this is. I wouldn’t make any comparison between Toyota and Tesla, since they aren’t the same type of car. I don’t know what tesla determines as flat and full charge. Toyota chose to only use 40% of the total capacity, which is supposed to make the battery last upto the 10 year or 100,000 miles. So the drop in capacity should be a slower effect compared to a full EV. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Find Me An Auris Hybrid!

    I noticed something for the first time yesterday, I was on the motorway and decided to accelerate to overtake a lorry that I was creeping up on. After passing the lorry, I let the cruise control bring the speed back to what it was set to. I noticed on the screen that it displayed one 30Whr block. So I guess that it helps prove the theory of the cruise control will apply the brakes when the speed exceeds the set speed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Sat nav settings with a mind of their own

    Hi, Presumably you have a touch 2 unit? I would be tempted to try the upgrade if you have down loaded it. The update usually contains software and not just the new map. If the layout of the main screen looks different, it is because they have made changes to the software. Since you have paid for it, you might as well upgrade. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New iPhone 6s Plus cannot connect to internet

    On the iPhone, go to settings and go to mobile data to select personal hotspot. Or it might be already in settings. That will fix it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
