  1. Hi Robert, That does not sound like good news for anyone.
  2. My wife dutifully reminded me that if a product is supplied and not fit for purpose: https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/consumer-rights-guarantees/consumer-guarantees#what-products-and-services-are-guaranteed- I have not yet contacted my Dealer here in WA but I will sometime this coming week, surely if they have updates there must be a policy/process...

  4. No luck. This part number is June 2 2015 :( I contacted Sygic who recommended download their app from Google Play Store and give it a go to check compatibility.
  5. Do we have anyone with enough tech to establish if we can upload an alternative app? If Toyota cannot come to the party and provide more recent maps / updates, I would prefer an alternative product. I have contacted Sygic to see if their software can be uploaded.
  6. The response is a standard one. I will translate: I do not speak English or I am a robot and therefore I cannot answer your enquiry. I have closed this enquiry thank you and please buy a product from someone who cares.

  7. I have sent a contact enquiry to IGO and Naviextras on their website. There are no Toyota Australia Models including the C-HR listed on the Naviextras website. The file structure on my SD Card was created - ‎Friday, ‎22 ‎July ‎2016, ‏‎4:20:03 PM It is almost 12 months since they received the cards :( let alone having out of date maps. https://www.naviextras.com/shop/portal/devicessupport Toyota Argentina models: Etios Toyota Brasil models: Etios Toyota GCC models: Toyota Tsusho UAE Land Cruiser AVN Toyota Tsusho UAE Sequoia Toyota Tsusho UAE Prado Toyota Tsusho Oman Land Cruiser AVN Toyota Tsusho Saudi Land Cruiser AVN Toyota Tsusho UAE Camry G3+ FJ-Cruiser RAV4

  9. I pay just under $350 per annum plus taxes with Youi for a fully comprehensive policy in Western Australia. I read somewhere that the majority of multi-vehicle accidents in Australia are rear-enders and as such the safety features provide a significant discount.

    J, I removed the passenger side trim as this is an easy process, thank you Mr Koba, and your design engineers. The drivers' side in-situ as I had no diagrams for trim panel removal on that side. Without removal, the passenger side would be difficult to wrap otherwise due to the tricky geometry of the trim panel and I wanted to wrap around the edges to ensure a long life in the Western Australian heat.
  11. c-hr

    Thank you, Eric. The trim panel was much more complex than any of the how-to's I watched. I wasted lots of material on the passenger side, the driver's side was easy, I was probably more confident given the simple shape and it was easy to tuck the excess into the crevices. I can't get a good shot but the wrap goes well with the brown diamond pattern on the door trim. I don't understand why Toyota offers the hi-vis and bright wraps but not a carbon.
  12. c-hr

    As I promised. I wrapped the dash in 3M 1080 Carbon Wrap.
  13. c-hr

    I took some photo's of the unit this morning showing the mounting brackets and back. It is a 2Din radio but is rather short. I'm not sure how you would go with a larger unit due to the current surround also housing the clock.
  14. c-hr

    I just went to the Australian Toyota Service & Repair Manuals Site https://toyotamanuals.com.au/ I did a search and they claimed to have the C-HR Manual available, paid my $16 for one day access and..... NO MANUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can get access to the Warranty and Service Booklet (Who Cares I Have a Hard Copy) but the Service & Repair Manual comes up Error HTTP Status 404 - The requested resource is not available. FRUSTRATION !@#$%^&*()
