    Techstream

    the latest is here https://www.toyota-tech.eu/GTS/Wizard/step2-intro.aspx but it won't be a cracked version so you would need to pay the activation licence for the required period.
  2. Toyota are not prescient (they certainly didn't foresee people using industrial grinders to just cut them off) & cat thefts were not an issue when the car was designed.
  3. I know (from similar HDD units in Avensis) but I did say £250 for what is involved which as I am sure you know now consists of: downloading a file to an USB stick (dealers can probably still order it already on a stick?), an activation code for that head unit, plugging said stick into car whilst engine is running, a bit of touch screen input & leaving it to do it's thing for 20 minutes -~1 hr (depending upon how many country maps you actually want on the car). It would be possible (although H&S may not like it) for the car to be left do it's own thing whilst the technician carries on doing something else. 🙂 & it sounds like MM19 will be able to do OTA updates.
  4. ligo (a grandfather was from near Kalamata).
  5. MM19 is MultiMedia19 - the forthcoming infotainment system on the 2020MY C-HR & presumably Corolla, RAV4 etc. as they get updated. The current is MM17 where the first 3 years from registration as new are free. I imagine that the tilt sensor is likely to be added to new production Corollas when they get updated for new MY or 1/2 MY changes depending upon location of the CAT & if Toyota reckon that theft of it is likely to be an issue. I think that Devon Aygo may have already alluded (January?) but can't really remember. edit: Yes, some may charge for the labour (it takes time - potentially up to ~1hr for the full Europe maps, you can cut that down by only installing the maps of countries that you actually need - with the engine running), some don't.
  6. Maybe (plenty of dealers won't), but £250 for what is involved would be highway robbery!
  7. This could be the issue with the eu site "This server could not prove that it is www.toyota-mapupdates.eu; its security certificate expired yesterday." However, don't go to your device, go to e-store>maps
  8. on this 2017 TS the dealer mounted it in the n/s boot trim panel above the boot light but as Frosty has said it is often nearer the rear than that.

  10. Have you any reason to believe that it has been fitted with a 3rd party system?
  11. well, that too - but asking the question suggests that he might not be amenable 😛
  12. If it has the standard fit alarm only then your insurance company should know. You can update the maps via MyToyota. they are free for the first 3 years of the car being registered from new.
  13. doesn't refer specifically to MM19 but: Free map updates for three years to keep your routes up to date Free online connected services for three years to allow you to make the most of all the apps in the system and stay connected wherever you are when connected to the internet https://www.toyota-europe.com/service-and-accessories/genuine-accessories/upgrade-toyota-touch-2 If you are concerned about speed cameras I would run something like Waze as well as this will be updated more quickly (especially with regard to mobile cameras)
  14. At the very least I would complain to the service manager or dealer principal.As already stated the actual update files are free for the first 3 years. Alternatively, if you don't feel capable yourself, find another dealer...
  15. Imo,on my car, 95% of the time it appears I can see no obvious threat, the other 5% I am already aware of something but not concerned. I have never braked or altered my steering & TSS has never actually intervened (e.g. braked).
  16. if the whole centre panel was red then it was Toyota Safety Sense
  17. Certainly by 2012 MY facelift. Other than the stupid position of the button by your left knee it's not really an issue especially on later cars (i.e. 2012 MY facelift on) - fear of failure seems to really outweigh actual failure rates although if they do go then the actuator is expensive (Toyota cs seems to look quite favourably on "goodwill" with many of these). All medium & above sized cars seem to be going over to EPBs.
  18. I don't have the MM17 version of Touch2 that you will but the older version but on mine the radio doesn't mute for navigation prompts but you can adjust the volume level of the voice prompts so that they are louder than the music. I have a suspicion that you may have unwittingly turned this down (it's quite common on the older version, I don't know about MM17).
  19. I think that it varies according to factory-fit or dealer-fit - my 2012 T-spirit had a button by the steering wheel, my 2017 Bus. Ed. has it in the boot.
  20. Front/rear? If you have a switch to disable e.g. when towing, presumably they aren't switched off? If your dealer says that they were working they must have been able to hear them ...
  21. I never proved it but I strongly suspected it on a couple of occasions when I had a 2012 Avensis with Smartfob. Only seemed to happen in 1 or 2 shops though ...🤔
  22. Highly unlikely that his car has a DPF so shouldn't need to be C2 - I used to run my 2007 2AD-FTV on B5. Quite possible these days though that C2 is easier/cheaper to get hold of.
  23. have you got something that can reset it (e.g. OBD cable & Techstream)?
  24. costs about $8 in the US for the badge as a spare part, PT413-42160 If you are happy with just AWD you can get badges in various colours (chrome, black, red etc.) on ebay from ~£2 del. from China
