    Auris HSD
  1. So "bump" should work with my iPhone, too. Until now I thought, normal software to send contacts via bluetooth is only from iPhone to another iPhone.So "bump" also seems to expect another iPhone to bump with. They write, the software must be installed on both phones. How did you manage it with your handsfree?
  2. Do you use an iPhone with a "Jailbreak" and "bump"?
  3. I think the problem is, iPhone is not able to send contacts via bluetooth. My former Nokia E66 could do this. So the only way to manage this is to add every single contact manually. Also the Audio bluetooth is not as it is described in the book. I managed to pair my iPhone but I still had to choose titles or albums on the phone. The only thing where I could use the Auris Audio is to Start Music or to Pause Music. But it's not too bad, because I don't need a cable to put in the AUX. All this is because Steve Jobs built a phone, that isn't able to use all the normal bluetooth standard options. But otherwise, I wouldn't give my iPhone back and so with the Auris HSD and therefore they both have to agree :) Thank you for your help ;) Sorry but that is just not true. My first generation iPhone was able to exchange contacts with my old TomTom 910 and that is three years ago. The problem is not with the iPhone at all it is the headunit manufacturers. My Audi A4 Cabriolet has not problem with contact exchange either. And most relevant to this topic my wives generation 3 Prius most happily syncs the phone book on both my iPhone and her HTC. It works perfects and takes about 30 seconds to do my 700'ish contacts on the phone. Streaming works just fine as well on the Prius. Only problem is actually with the iPod connection kit which doesn't seem to like to play with anything less than 12 months old. I'm in a dispute with Toyota on that one.

Sometimes you are lucky, like you with your Prius as well as my wife with her IQ and a Parrot handsfree, sometimes you're not, like me. The iPhone is not able to send addresses via bluetooth like many other mobile phones do, and the handsfree of the Auris Hybrid wants to receive the contacts via bluetooth. It doesn't have a sync-function like my wife's parrot-handsfree and maybe your Prius handsfree.I added all my contacts manually and now everything works fine. There was a little problem connecting my iPhone via USB. I had title and everything on the radio but the sound was not so good (noise during playback). Now my iPhone is connected via AUX and the sound is good, but no title and albums on the radio-display.
  4. Have no SatNav but will check USB tomorrow for playing MP3.
  5. It seems that Apple only fixes problems with the iPhone 4. The main problem is that Apple is not willing to support the normal bluetooth standard with the iPhone. You could do much more with other bluetooth mobile phones than you can do with the iPhone (e.g. send addresses and more).I don't believe that Steve will change his opinion but we will see. While there's life there's hope ;)

Read more here. wow, that would be fine :)

  8. I'm now an Auris Hybrid Owner for 2 hours and very proud. Is there anybody with an iPhone. Can you explain how to get my address book in the car's handsfree set? I'm still proud and excited. :)
  9. Today I saw my new HSD. It seems that I can get 1 1/2 weeks before german sales launch (September 18th). They changed the boot again. It has now the "big hole" with carpet in it (boot maximizer) and a thick carpet to cover the hole. So, if you open the boot door you see a flat boot but you can remove the carpet to increase the boot capacity. My seller told me, I can get my car after registration on Tuesday afternoon. I'm very excited.
  10. The "maximiser" also got a carpet in that "big hole"
  11. I saw the boot maximiser tray in the Auris brochure before I bought it and asked to be contacted when it's available. However, the dealer said that it should be available in the UK around October and they are offering it as a free upgrade. As long as I can keep the existing boot tray so I have a choice I'll be happy. Don't see why it shouldn't be possible. Aha, Toyota calls this "boot-maximizer". That's nice. The cars we drove came from Belgium. They had the normal (European) boot-tray when they where delivered to Toyota Germany. We've been told, that Toyota just modified the boot-tray for german cars and that this boot tray was changed an hour before we came to cologne. They were brand new.The more I think over it, the more I found the solution with the "maximizer" more comfortable. The Auris Hybrid boot is very flat and with this "maximizer" you are able to load a crate of beer or something like this.
  12. Yesterday I went to cologne were the new Auris Hybrid was presented and it's true: they changed the boot for german cars. I don't know, if I like it.
  13. Nothing to say about the warranty. In Germany, there are no changes I think. But I got news about the delivery: I will get my car on or only a little before September 16th. So I have to wait another month. Our dutch neighbors (30 km away) already got the car in their showrooms. I saw it last friday. It is a very nice car and they make a great job in Burnaston. I'm looking forward to be an owner of this car :)
  14. I had the CR-Z for a Test-Drive and yes, the acceleration was pretty good. Normally we don't have a speed-limit in Germany on motorways so I had the chance to accelerate to top speed which should be 200 km/h (about 124 mph) according to Honda's data-sheet.The CR-Z was very good until it reached 130 km/h (81 mph). Then the power is gone and it went very slowly up to 175 km/h (109 mph). I drove about 30 km on the motorway with accelerator-pedal pressed to the bottom and didn't manage to get to the indicated top speed of 124 mph. The Honda CR-Z looks faster as it is. In January I had a Prius. This car accelerated up to 185 km/h (115 mph) continuously. I'd prefer to drive a Prius or better, my new Auris Hybrid which I hopefully get beginning of September. Another thing: Honda claims the CR-Z have 4 seats. A Toyota IQ has more place on the rear seats than the CR-Z do and even in the IQ no adults are able to sit on the rear seat.
  15. A picture speaks a thousand words. There's a strong cover for the boot tidy... Ooh, that's great. Thank you very much. I just asked my Toyota-Trader. Toyota Germany seems to hold back the cars for german customers. My car was to be delivered on 11th of August. In a second system on the computer it was read "estimated time of delivery: xxxxxxx". That "x" means, no information available at this time. It will be definitely end of August, beginning of September but also definitely not the 11th of August.Every more week I have to wait it's getting harder. I wait since March. By the way, it seems I ordered the same car as you. In germany there are two configurations: Life and Executive. Life is without a view things like rear cam and other extras. Executive (I've ordered) got everything but Sat-Nav and Leather-Alcantara-Seats, the two last things are extras only available for the Executive. I ordered without Nav and Leather, I have a TomTom Nav and don't need Leather-Seats. But I ordered my car in pearl-white which is an extra for 690 EUR (about 575 £). Thank you again for your photos :)
