#126 of 213 Software update for the Treo 700p coming soon
Mar 20, 2007 (5:52 am)
Not exactly on topic but as a fellow Treo 700p user, I thought you might be interested to know that there is a software update coming next month, in April 2007. The good news is that one of the things it is supposed to do is update the Bluetooth stack, which should improve its ability to sync with the Toyota Camry Hybrid (and a host of other cars). The bad news is that the update is only for Sprint 700p smartphones; 700p smartphones from other cell companies (such as Verizon Wireless) will not be updated until later in the year.

I am also considering xenons. Can you provide details re the source of lighting equipement added and cost.

I love my xenon's... had them installed by an after market auto shop. It took them 45 minutes for the installation. It was pricey... about $500... but, I live in a heavily deer populated area and drive early in the morning and late at night. The area of coverage is much wider and brighter than normal lights and because of the TCH lighting set up they plug right in.
The alternative was fog lights... Toyota told me that the fog lights would cost around $1,000 as the car was not set up for them. After market would require some drilling and only save me a few dollars over the xenon.
The only down side is that it technically voids our warranty with Toyota... so I have my old lights if I need to switch them out. I am no longer squinting and driving in the dark is much easier.

I was wondering when they would come out with an update... good to know. Of course I have Verizon so it will be a long wait. Thanks.

The "ONLY" downside? Doesn't sound like you place much value on that. If I believed that I think I would rather take my chances with the deer.
I live in deer country too. However just replaced my front bumper cover ($650) but it was a large dog instead of a deer. Lights would not have helped me.
If something like frying your wiring happens and you put your old lights back in don't you think maybe Toyota might question that?

I'm friendly with the Toyota mechanics at my shop... they even checked the wiring and further secured it for me... The dealership I use is one of the best dealers I have ever been to... they go the extra mile... and the headlight kit comes with something that is suppose to prevent the wiring from frying... I'll read the box when I get home. I guess I don't mind pushing the envelope.

Did they say why the change to a modern more efficient headlight system would void your warranty, also how did they know you had the change made.
Do they mean your entire warranty or just where the lights are concerned.
Im starting to wonder if I made a mistake going with Toyota.
Ther should be a site where you can ask Toyota a question.

I think you are talking about an Avalon or a Lexus

Toyota would have no basis for voiding your warranty except in areas effected by what you altered.
It seems reasonable to me that they warranty their work, not yours or the work of a 3rd party.

You know... that is a very good question which I need to ask someone in tech. I do a lot of night driving on weekends for my work and can't tell you what a difference the xenon lights make! Hardly need my brights and the range from side to side is incredible.
As for making a mistake with a TCH... I love my car. I have had other cars that have better design features... controls on the steering wheel, seats, navigation, etc. But I would still trade them all in for my TCH. It's a great car with great mpg.
