  1. Probably best not to read a thread entitled "Lexus NX True MPG" then? 😂
  2. The main cost on any car is depreciation and from seeing how well the NX holds value I'd bet it actually works out a lot cheaper to run overall but yes it would be a hit on the fuel costs each month :( Just hoping Toyota / Lexus hurry up playing catch up on EV, they lost so much time insisting Hydrogen was the way forwards.
  3. Why would you not believe what a company says about a product on their website, a reputable brand from a reputable manufacturer - you generally would expect their sales blurb to tell the truth....
  4. If you still can't get it working then you can prob work around by having your phone set for Hey Google / Siri so you can just ask the phone to read it out.
  5. If you want to get better mpg even on very short journeys turn the heater off and just use heated seats, most of the engine running on a short journey is warming up the cabin
  6. Made it over 50mpg on the trip computer, 1 hour drive with 50% town, 50% A roads 👍 Can see how in ideal conditions the quoted mpg is achieved - obviously not realistic on day to day but if you were never in a rush and went at optimal speeds it could be done.
  7. Yep, finally got it all up and running last night using the username and bluetooth. Thank you very much for the help & tips! Finally have traffic updates :) Some thing that seemed strange - when adding the Bluetooth communication you have to enter your Username & Password for the portal, yet you also have to add the same credentials under Nav (strangely the password on the Nav section gets * out but not under the Bluetooth section) Also got the following response from Lexus so they might have had an issue at first launch which they fixed:
  8. Also if you don't mind me asking do you use Wi-fi and hotspot on phone for access or have you managed to get it working through Bluetooth? Dealer seemed to think it would work with Bluetooth (using iPhone 7) but it just gives error code. Would of course be better using Bluetooth in terms of battery life on phone etc.
  9. Cool thanks, will give it another go still using Username (seems strange they would decide to use 2 different logins but nevermind) would just like to get the connected traffic up and working - is it any good?
  10. Can you still log into the portal with your username? If I go there I can only login with email even though it says Username\Email, username just gives login failure error.
  11. I'll check it out, never got mine to connect as just after I purchased and was setting it up the portal went down and hasn't been available since. It might be I just have a faulty unit if people aren't having issues with character limit and I have already been told may have an issue by Lexus based on my video footage of telling the car to 'suspend guidance' from which it comes back with 'playing an album....'
  12. Very strange? Car only went in a week ago for latest software update but after typing in 16 chars everything greys out on mine and it won't let me anymore characters....
  13. Well it seems the new Lexus portal has gone live after being down for a long time. Sad to say it still doesn't work connecting to the car though, the portal now uses email address for username but the car can only handle 16 characters for the username so with something like you are down to just 4 characters you could use. Their entire infotainment / website / coding side needs serious attention, it's like they just asked people who were previously building cars if they fancied trying to do the coding side...
  14. After my first decent run, reckon if you wanted to eek max mpg you could get to 50mpg on the trip computer
  15. Colours like that only suit sports cars, even then not convinced.
