Is your DRCC the same as those in the Prius? watch this video
, basically it will function even in stop-n-go traffic (in complete stop as well) just by pushing up the cruise control stalk.

Thanks.

The '16 Hybrid manual states that automatic cancelation of vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode will occur if vehicle speed falls below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h), it's in section 4-5 Using the driving support systems of the owner's manual.

No its not the same system. That said, people often confuse the speed control system with the collision avoidance system, their functions overlap.
None of these systems are suitable for stop-n-go traffic and should never be relied on for that.

I thought he meant to compare adaptive cruise control with our Rav, no?

Read the manual for yourself, it starts on page 261. https://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om-s/OM0R005U/pdf/OM0R005U.pdf

Page 270:

Dynamic radar cruise control can be set when
●The shift lever is in D or range 4 or higher of S has been selected.
●Range 4 or higher of D has been selected by using the paddle shift switch.
(Vehicles with paddle shift switches)
Vehicle speed is above approximately 30 mph (50 km/h).
■Accelerating after setting the vehicle speed
The vehicle can be accelerated normally. After acceleration, the set speed
resumes. However, during vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode, the vehicle
speed may decrease below the set speed in order to maintain the distance
to the preceding vehicle.
■Automatic cancelation of vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode
Vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode is automatically canceled in the following
situations:
●Actual vehicle speed falls below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).
●VSC is activated.
●TRAC is activated for a period of time.
●When the VSC or TRAC system is turned off.
●The sensor cannot detect correctly because it is covered in some way.
●Pre-collision braking is activated.
If vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode is automatically canceled for any
other reason, there may be a malfunction in the system. Contact your Toyota
dealer.
■Automatic cancelation of constant speed control mode
Constant speed control mode is automatically canceled in the following situations:
●Actual vehicle speed is more than approximately 10 mph (16 km/h) below
the set vehicle speed.
Actual vehicle speed falls below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).
●VSC is activated.
●TRAC is activated for a period of time.
●When the VSC or TRAC system is turned off.
●Pre-collision braking is activated.
If constant speed control mode is automatically canceled for any other reason,
there may be a malfunction in the system. Contact your Toyota dealer.
■Warning messages and buzzers for dynamic radar cruise control
Warning messages and buzzers are used to indicate a system malfunction or
to inform the driver of the need for caution while driving.
If a warning message is shown on the multi-information display, read the
message and follow the instructions.

I would imagine Toyota could implement this feature with software since the hardware is already present. But then again, this is probably going to be offered on the next generation RAV and will become a selling point.

Thx guys.

Found it directly from Toyota

After complete full stop, without pressing on the gas pedal, simply push up the cruise control stalk or the resume button and watch......!

We have a '16 Prius and a '17 Rav4 Hybrid. The cruise in the Prius is much better due to this feature. Makes stop and go traffic much more bearable...

Anyone know if this feature can be upgraded to full speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control in future for 2017 models?
I have the same question. Would be pretty good if we get this as an update.

Though, unlike Smartphone Mfrs, I don't think Car manufacturers do this kind of thing on features like Cruise Control. Maybe they add some feature to the Entertainment head unit. Like Mazda is supposed to add Apple Carplay retroactively to their Entertainment system.

A feature like better cruise control will just be used by Toyota to differentiate their newer model from their 2017 models.

Just chiming in, comma.ai has released early Rav4 support today. The full package consists of 3 parts, costing about 850 bucks. Installed you get full range cruise (to stop) and then you have to accelerate to 20 again. The lane keep assist also fully works for some pretty impressive corners with it.

The lead of the company, Geohot, said a simple ECU flash could fix the auto resume in start and go traffic but that’s not out yet...

Interesting development by Comma. Does the standard forward facing camera get replaced by their camera/display and giraffe?

It will not replace the camera totally, but it will use the smart phone camera to control the lane detection. It will also use the radar built into the car for longitudinal control. Lateral is all based on the camera and machine learning controlled vision.
