  1. I took advice from GruffaloRider and ordered some Gyeon Q2view from Amazon. I will see how this goes.
  2. Having owned 4 Lexus models (a 2004 IS220D, 64 plate CT, 66 Plate IS300H and now an 18 plate NX300H), I have loved every one of them to varying degrees. The 220D was a really nice car, but I had to get rid due to the nasty diesel engine. The CT was a great car, but a little on the small side for me. The IS300H was fantastic in all areas and beats it's rivals hands down in my opinion. My current NX is, I can honestly say, the best car I have ever owned, and I have owned a lot of cars in my 40 years of driving. A mixture of Ford, Nissan, VW, Mercedes and Honda have all been parked on my drive in the past. None of them can match Lexus for quality and reliability in my view. However, there is one thing that all four Lexus models have suffered from which really infuriates me. After washing the car, winding down the drivers door window (and presumably all other windows) leaves a lot of water marks on the freshly cleaned glass. Each and every Lexus I have owned has suffered from this problem. Is this something that I have to suffer, or is there a quick fix that I am not aware of?
  3. Not to be condescending to everyone, but I don't really know what all the fuss is about with this issue. Yes I agree that you can buy a dud battery and they do have a shelf life so may not be fully charged when you buy them. However, I just bought a pack of two CR2032 cell batteries from buyabattery.co.uk for the huge sum of £1.95 plus delivery, so £3.20 in total, and the battery change took about 30 seconds per fob.

  4. Sorry to tell you this, but this is an expensive fix and more than likely an insurance claim. I believe the cost runs into 3 figures :(
  5. Transfer it all on to a USB stick. Much simpler and no charging or cables required.
  6. Finally got round to carrying out the update yesterday, and all went fine. Took about an hour as suggested earlier, but relatively simple process. I had confirmation from Lexus customer service that I have free map updates for 3 years, so all good. This was not made clear to me by Lexus Newcastle when I bought the car, so a little disappointing on their part. Anyway, thanks for the original post Phil. Very useful.
  7. Thanks Phil (and Tony). I will give it a go.
  8. Do these updates have to be paid for? My NX is a 2018 Luxury model?
  9. Hi Malcolm. Have you tried blackcircles.com. They are offering Cross climates for an NX at £141.12 fully fitted, with an extra 10% off this week as you can see below. I have used them before and they are very good. Most Lexus dealers will price match too, so well worth giving them a try.
  10. I too love the sequential indicators and I believe that they actually are more visible than other cars on the road. I like the fact that the daytime running lights go out and change to the orange indicator. On lots of other cars, it is very difficult to see the indicator when they are close to the very bright daytime running lights, so this a no brainer in my view.
  11. Whilst I can connect my car to my home Wi-Fi without any issues and have managed to download some routes that I planned on my laptop through Wi-Fi to the car, I cannot connect to the eStore, or get access to online services at all. Every time I start the car, I get a message saying unable to login to ***** (my username on the portal) which I have to clear from the screen using the back button. I have a hot spot switched on with my iPhone 8 and the car can connect to this no problem. I have tried reading the manual, but it is not very clear what I am doing wrong. I am hoping somebody can point me in the right direction before I need to make a trek to my local dealer to get help from them,.
  12. Thanks Ilari72. I tried your 'fix' but unfortunately it made no difference. I think the only thing that will fix it is to change the file names so that the number 1 track is prefixed with an A, the number 2 prefixed with a B, as the tracks are all being played in alphabetical rather than numeric order. This is fine for most music I play, but on certain albums (War of the Worlds for example) the tracks need to be played in the correct order. I am going to give this a go and will report back how I get on.
  13. Hi Colin. Yes I do mean music on a memory stick. The NX must have different software to both the CT and IS that I had previously, because the music played in both cars from the same USB stick as I would expect. I take your point though in terms of numbering each track. This may fix the issue and I will give it a go. Thanks for your help.
  14. Having got to grips with most of the controls and gadgets at my disposal in my NX, I have tried to find out why my albums that I play from USB are playing in the wrong order. I can see that the system is playing them in alphabetical order, whereas I would like them played in the order that they appear on the album. Does anybody know how to fix this? I have tried (and failed) using the manual to find the answer. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Thanks Daniel. I have received hard copies of both manuals in the post now direct from an email to Lexus customer services, so I am happy. I am getting to grips with the many functions of the car, and have even (almost) mastered the touchpad.
