  1. Yes, service record in the back of the warranty book. First service next week, 10,100 miles.
  2. I agree wholeheartedly with Lexus, the UX fits our needs perfectly. Mostly just the two of us, sometimes young grandchildren. Overcome lack of boot space by removing both plastic box/liner and replacing them with a Lidl boot liner!!
  3. Is there a Nav update coming to retrofit Apple or Android car play to 2019 UX's? I thought I read somewhere that this is a possibility in the next few months?
  4. The latest advertising for the UX refers to Android play and Apple play as included as standard. Checked with Lexus and it seems to be a retrofit available around March.
  5. Just updated my nav system to latest map version and 1530. Worked fine, although a bit fiddly and need to have reasonable PC knowledge. Took about 2 hours after preparing the two usb's. I had an initial problem confusing 0 for O's - took me three attempts before realising my mistake!! Paid for 1 hour on the site for the 1530 update - plenty of time.
  6. I use Lexus link to send to car navigation destinations. Works fine, easy to set up routes in advance using my smartphone. The only query I have is that when I first open the app it says "one more thing to do before you can enjoy all of our connected services. Please contact your local dealer to help set up the process" Has anyone done this? What are the connected services? Haven't bothered the dealer yet.
  7. I'v used Android auto in the States and look forward to it - much better than the present system.
  8. Mine is the same, seems to be a light sensor behind the screen or somewhere. Example, a short period of reduced light (under a bridge for example), the headlights come on. A longer period of darkness ie a tunnel, lights on and screen dims with black background.
  9. Can anyone tell me if there are any apps which should appear when I take the option App store? All I get is an apparent search which results in nothing? What's the point of this option? I have wifi enabled - close to my house and using my phone as mobile hot spot.
  10. Thanks for your reply. Not long after sending the question I had a relevant experience. On the A30 requiring go to Truro the sat Nav said take the A39 but Google maps directed us off at an earlier B road which avoided the roadworks on the A39. Later we found there were 15mins delay on the A39. My conclusion - about time Lexus adopted Google maps as their Nav system, as we have used with hire cars in North America.
  11. On a recent trip to Cornwall the Nav system came up with 5/6 recalculate route messages. Anyone any idea how the system gets the information?
  12. Used the Lexus app. to send to car a route from Google maps. No problem provided WiFi is enabled in the car and you have a Mylexus account.
  13. Trying to source a rear bumper protector for my UX (Sonic Titanium). Anyone know if, and where from, this is available?
  14. Will European Lexus adopt Google maps as a navigation option? Just back from the USA where with my hire car - not Lexus, I was able to use Google maps via my smart phone linked to the car's navigation screen via Google Auto app. It was far superior to the system on my UX (and my former CT200h).
