  1. Hey Cyker… I know about the not so shiny bit… my fault I’m afraid, it always rains when I order a new set of wheels… it will likely do so until after the day I collect it! 😂😂
  2. Hi all… I seem to have found my way back here! From a Prius in 2008 through a Yaris, Auris, and a 2016 RAV - all hybrids, I’ve just ordered an AWD Excel RAV ! hope to pick up tips etc from you knowledgeable bunch!
  3. Dunno Andy, mine is a nextbase one and caused havoc with the satnav... even after an upgrade of the software... when I got home after the update I moved the camera and the problems went away... coincidence perhaps, but no problems since....
  4. My hybrid RAV does indeed go up one mph per upward flick, it does have to be a definite push though, a “quick flick”does nothing at all.... downward decreases by one mph... hold it in either direction does reduce or increase progressively....
  5. My dash cam interfered with the gps on the built in satnav receiver when I had it in the centre of the screen behind the mirror.... put it down in the bottom left hand side and the problems went away! No rhyme nor reason but ......
  6. Brilliant, thanks for the confirmation....
  7. Any ideas guys? Someone must have the same version?
  8. Hi guys... having had my satnav updated to 6.9, i have a new icon! i think it is for average speed cameras but.... Its the one to the left of the speed limit.... am I right or is it for something else... it gives a single 'ting' as it appears as opposed to the normal double ting for ordinary speed cameras..
  9. Wow! Mine says software version 4.4 IWL, map id 2014v3 ! Due to be done in a couple of weeks so hope all will be well then...
  10. Hi all.... long time since I posted on the forums! however the dozy bird behind the dashboard on my rav hybrid BE keeps getting lost! no longitude or lattitude is being displayed and dead reckoning gets lost.... i'm thinking gps receiver fault but dealer thinks it is a software problem... questions : where is the gps receiver, and has anyone else had this problem?
  11. Oh for goodness sake stop going on about the 'weasel warranty'.... You bought the car, presumably fully aware of the terms and conditions, I assume you were happy with those conditions, including the 3 year warranty, which I believe at the time was standard across the whole Toyota range, otherwise you would not have accepted the deal. Crying and spilt milk come to mind. I seem to recall you were moaning about this when I was on the site a year ago and it was partly the constant carping that caused me to disappear for a while. AFAIK Ford still offers a ONE year warranty unless you pay extra, and if it's really serious you will get a recall as per the current one for older Prius than yours. We KNOW you feel hard done by, please don't keep on about it. Life is too short and there are other more important matters to discuss. Hopefully I've not upset you too much by saying the above, but I feel it it really needed to be said
  12. Ffs Nicolai... Just go and buy a Prius. I, like others on here have had both the gen2 1.5 and the gen3 1.8, I now have the Yaris HSD. I have NEVER had problems overtaking anything, from tractors on country roads, to cars travelling below the speed limit on motorways. None of the 3 HSD's that I've had have ever had any problems accellerating away from lights. As far as reliability is concerned, I've hadmToyotas for over 25 years and only ever once have I had a complaint, and that was when the dealer put the number plate at the front on crooked! When did you last see a Toyota waiting for a breakdown truck apart from punctures??
  13. Yeah, I'd thought about the extension lead, it's the stopping without notice that bugs me!
  14. Strangely enough my Gen 3 was the only modern car I have ever owned that I did not have this problem in, and so far the Yaris hasn't shown it up either. I think it is the angle of the dashboard and how high you are sitting in the drivers seat. Try putting some plain black cloth over the dash and see if that works, it did in the two MK1 avensis that were awful at this time of year or in the evenings heading west....
  15. Ok guys here's a problem... The first I've ever had in 25 years of Toyota's.... Touch and go. Fine, I'm getting to like the bird in the glove box, not a pretty sight but I don't have to look at her. However therein lies my problem. I have put 1070 music mp3's on a usb stick. Picks up immediately plays fine, but every now and again it stops and displays 'stopped' on the screen. So far I have found neither any way of starting it again, nor the reason for it stopping. However, i did notice that it displays the track playing as 159/720 or whatever, so I assume that it is playing track 159 of 720 tracks... What happened to the other 300 or so and is the reason for it stopping the excess of tracks? Of course the only way I have found of restarting the thing is to unplug it and plug it in again, which given the damn stupid location is not practical at 70mph on a motorway!! Any comments, observations, thoughts, solutions please??
