  1. Tried it for a while, couldn't come to terms with the rather infantile user interface/graphics.
  2. I’ve tried a whole load of navigation systems, from factory-fitted to various PNDs to all the popular apps, and I find there’s still nothing better than TomTom Go for iPhone. If I could CarPlay that to the head unit in my Prius, I’d be over the moon.
  3. I assumed it would be like the service indicator on my old Merc, where the car advises you when it’s due based not just on time, mileage etc but also factoring in the kind of driving that the car has been subjected to. The Toyota version requires you to just manually enter a reminder. You could put that in your diary!
  4. I always thought this was a daft feature on my old third gen Prius. Not surprised they ditched it.
  5. I just want to make sure I understand this? Are you saying that new Priuses are fitted with a version of T2WG that will in due course support CarPlay?
  6. I notice there's now a half-functional new Corolla configurator on the Toyota UK website, but still no full details of specs nor a pukka brochure.
  7. Sorry GC you've lost me, what is the PiP then?Discontinued. PiP production will resume for Europe and Japan, I heard of. Nah.

  9. The irresistible conclusion is that the game is up for the Avensis and this is the last one we'll see. The Prius is Toyota's D segment car now. I'd like to believe you but with Toyota bunging the price up so much, the Prius is just no longer competitive. Might be why they sold less than 3,000 of them last year (including the PIP), the lowest since the gen2 came out in 2004. There are many other cars out there that offer low running costs and/or great fuel economy for much less than a Prius. I was a fan, I sang the praises, but I also no it's time has come and gone. The gen4 (if it ever gets released in the UK) had better be a game changer. Aye, the CT200h Luxury I just ordered is going to cost me less than my Prius, which is just crackers.

  11. My firm's fleet department quote a lead time of 16 weeks on most Toyota and Lexus models, even the ones built here.
  12. It's a very expensive option on the CT200h, and only available on the top of the line Premier variant.
  13. How are you coping without radar cruise? I am dreading giving that up when I come to swap my Prius for a CT-200h.
  14. I will post a comparison when I get it (late August). Things I know I am going to miss from my Prius: reversing camera, radar cruise, the occasionally useful larger boot. Things I won't: the pretty awful navigation (sticking to smartphones from now on), the embarrassingly cheap sound the doors make when closing, the infamously rattly interior. Overall, I have enjoyed the Prius ownership experience, save for the spate of breakdowns the 12V battery issue subjected me to last year. I'd have happily kept it for another year at least if it had been my own rather than a company car.
