    Dash Cam Installation Advice

    As demonstrated the number plate comes into focus as you approach the car diminishing the glare of the headlamps. Therefore I conclude the Cam will record all the incident regardless of consequence. Tel

    Dash Cam Installation Advice

    The night time image of the number plate disappoints but I assume is perfect if your vehicle is stationary. The US Lexus Dashcam is a Fujitsu unit FT0112A & has the best spec BUT has that got an issue @ night. I will find out. I understand Toyota /Lexus are releasing a new model in the Spring & @ the point of impact you would assume all of them will read the Number Plate anyway. Tel

    Surely it is the cost of change & ensuring ( see above ) you know the Spec of the new model. The IS 300h 2013 F-Sport had !9 inch wheels & AVS as an Option on all Uk Press Vehicles but my 2 Local Dealers could not order one for me. This Time I went to the Dealer with my Perfect Spec geared to my Cost of Change. For the first time ex Demonstrators might be considered---Cost of Change is Key. Dealer surprised me by offering me my Spec on a yet to be launched 2019 Model The rest is history. Tel

    Same as Apple Airplay then as I read it but I still do not see the advantage unless you wish to watch videos when you are parked. Tel

    For 2019, the Nav is said to be more intuitive with enhanced graphics. The Pad may not be everybody's cup of tea but the display itself cannot be bettered. Tel

    2019 NX Full Spec Available----I have the reclining Rear Seats but still not sure on Driver Seat only Memory. Tel
  10. You would think the 360 degree view OEM must come from the door mirrors could be easily modified to monitor side incidents. My NX will have this feature which clearly shows the entire area around the car. If I can source the Lexus Cam the above convinces me that the rear needs cover too. A reordered Incident that shows you were not to blame should erase any liability on your part even if the vehicle is stolen & you are parked in the Tuscan Countryside
  11. Regular Members may recall that whilst I was parked up in a Motel Carpark on The Continent an idiot reversed into my front bumper. The resultant damage was barely noticeable & my Dealer said their Smart System would repair the fault. I had to wait nearly a month for the Smart Expert to declare his system was no match for the superb Lexus Finish & he advised me to take it to a Professional Body Shop. I informed my Insurance a month late who clearly accepted my Story & new Bumper & Trim were fitted. Assume if I had a Dash Cam, I simply send a File Copy of any Incident that happens to my car to my Insurers & they accept immediately that I am not @ Fault & seek compensation from the Third Party Secondly, I assume my 2019 Lexus Cam (?) informs me I need to look @ its footage with the File sent to my iPhone of said Incident. My point is I clean my Car twice per month & know its condition & the Cam requires the Trim to be pulled apart yet never covers the Sides of my Car that seems to be So attractive to Retail Park Customers. Advice Please Tel

    Thanks Reading all the Data from above I note that The 2019 F-Sport spec infers that it lacks the 10.3 Nav & no Front Seat Memory but my IS Spec never listed the latter despite its inclusion. Lexus have always been very poor @ Listing an accurate spec ,yet the German Marques even list the cost of a Steering Wheel. In 2011, I Lexified an M3 against the Mk.2 ISF which cost a further 11k taking the M3 cost to 71k v 58k, yet the ISF still had more Toys. & was significantly cheaper to run. In 2017, I did the same with a Mini Cooper S that raised the cost from 21k. to 36k yet the BMW Spec still did not match my expectations. Thanks to this Forum I now have more idea of what I have Ordered & for 45k. my expectation is High. Have a Great Time & Happy Christmas to All Tel

    My choice was based on the need to get the revised AVS & no cooling for the vented front seats will not be missed as my ISF did not have this facility due to the Sport Seat Design. What I will miss is the power recline rear seats that Europe has not included. According to the US Reviews the AVS has been further revised along with changes to bushing compliance. Never had a Card Key & are ignorant of its purpose but I do accept the rear seat heat may well have got my grand children to sleep quicker ! Tel

    Will soon be as swift as my Mk.2 ISF that I previously had ! However, if Lexus Media themselves can get it wrong, who knows what the 2019 Specs are ? Tel
