    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)

  2. Highlander Seat Comfort

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Limited and Limited Platinum passenger seats are only 4-way power.
  3. Why Highlander over Pilot

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    ls973800 - 2 things 1 - wait for the highlander refresh. You’ll get an updated infotainment system probably on par or better than the Honda 2 - get the platinum limited for the additional options you were looking for (rear heated seats, 360 camera and front sensors)
  4. Is Start / Stop feature in the 2019 HL different/improved?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    2018 here and mine’s the same way. If you look at the small display, it will have a message that says to press the brake pedal firmer to enagage the s/s. I find the system works well and that I can control the s/s easily with how hard I am on the brake pedal at a stop.
  5. Safety Connect-2019 for 3 years, 2018-Only 1 Year

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    The 2019 limited platinum is $150 more than it was in 2018. Toyota safety connect cost $80/year, so your out 10 bucks. Not a big deal!!!
  6. 2019 Highlander voice in guidance or navigation

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I love having the 360 camera. I use the backup/aerial view to see how close to the curb I am. Also, when pulling in somewhere it’s great being able to push the button to the drivers left to activate the cameras and see where my front end is at.

    The heated steering wheel only comes on the platinum, not an option for limited. Platinum adds: Heated second row seats Heated steering wheel 360 Birds eye camera Rain sensing windshield wipers Panoramic moonroof (optional on limited) Safety connect Puddle lamps project “Highlander”

    The muffled to clear is normal. When you switch to different FM stations is starts out as normal “standard definition” reception while it is looking for and acquiring the HD digital signal. You’ll notice the clearer sound timing will coooncide with the HD symbol lighting up in the top right...
  9. Recall on replacement windshields by Fujian

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I would never use safelite "house" glass. Poor quality and no requirement to do any more than saftey minimums. https://info.glass.com/oem-vs-aftermarket-glass/
  10. Blind Spot Monitoring Alerts

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Thanks Andrew. I read a post back in 2016 saying that. I was hoping that Toyota would have addressed that in the last couple years.
  11. Blind Spot Monitoring Alerts

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    My Sprinter has BSM; when the turn signal is used it give both a visual and audible alert if there is a vehicle in the lane your signaling to. I noticed my Highlander only gives a visual alert. Does anyone else have visual alert only? I get an audible alert for rear cross traffic.
  12. Navigation Freeway Exit Info Distracting

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Thanks Hytec, I never noticed this before. I just have always been on the freeway when I adjusted that option. I just tried to change it in the driveway today and sure enough, those options were grayed out. What a stupid design choice.
  13. iPhone SMS/TEXT help please...

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    It kind of sound like what edge3333 pointed out; you have the DND While Driving feature turned on.
  14. iPhone SMS/TEXT help please...

  15. 2019 - Couple Newbie Questions

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I just checked all the scenarios out on mine: 1) Full auto mode, sync for passenger and rear stays synced after ignition cycle. 2) Auto mode off, sync for passenger and rear stays synced after ignition cycle. I turned the system completely off, cycled the sync off for both passenger and rear...
