Mr. Nskod :
Welcome from another Lexus Owner ( myself ) , and I'm sure from other Owner's.
Direct Answers To Your ? :
YES , THE 2003 CD / NAV ... IS INTERCHANGEBLE INTO YOUR 2001 LS 430
NAVIGATION CD PLAYER ( ROM ) .
VERSION 02.1 HAS MUCH MORE CORRECT GROUND DATA THAN THE 2001 .
Personal Conversation :
A Telephone Conversation With Lexus Customer Satisfaction in Torrance , Calofornia , COULD LEAD TO A REPLACEMENT CD AKA : 2004.1 , AT
NO CHARGE . There was a campaign of no charge replacements at a point in the past . However , i cannot remember which model year of the LS was the focal point . The free exchange was not 2001 , but ; could have been 2002.1 .
Gentle Conversation With The Customer Rep Can go A long Way , If The Power
is in their Hands .

Welcome to the club, nskod. In addition to what Mitchell said, you might also want to consider waiting till October or November when typically they come out with a new version of the CD. Then buy that one (from Lexus-parts.com), install it yourself, and you'll have the newest newest.

The 03 version is a huge upgrade ....I also have an 01 ...the O3 goes from approx 750,000 points of interest to over 5 million points of interest....
I think the nav. system in the 03 LS is the same as the 01...But just to be sure call your local Lexus dealer...and ask...Also get a quote from them you never know.
P.S. it is easy to install...Maybe a 10 min. job and that is only because it is really hard to figure out Where the unit is and how to get there.
There was a how to Install this new Disk posted on Edmonds The Host could probably tell you how to find it.

If you mean it was posted here in this discussion, the "Search This Discussion" box (just above the first post and just below the last post on this page) is the best bet. If it was somewhere else, give me more info and I'll try to hunt it up.
