#20 of 56 Heres the 1 bad thing about Lexus
Nov 03, 2003 (10:04 am)
My wife has a 2002 330 BMW. After owning it for one year she received a complimentary update CD for her navigation system. I had (just sold to get a new LS430)a 2002 LX470 and had to call four dealers trying to find out if there were updates in the nav system. Finally the fourth dealer said he could get one, for FIVE HUNDRED dollars.Too bad, as that doesn't seem in the spirit of Lexus.
even though Lexus changed the policy beginning with my 2001. At my dealership sales and service are in separate locations. Service informed me of the charge when I requested the updated DVD, and I went back to my salesman. He was still telling customers the first update was free, and was surprised to find out otherwise. In any event, they authorized the new (2002) disk and installation without any hassel whatsoever.
I had mine update free just two weeks ago. I got the same story that it was not free any more but I told them that the salesman said it was free when I bought it. They want to keep customer happy and gave me free update.
#25 of 56 ANY ADVICE ON SAT. RADIO INSTALLATION?
Oct 02, 2004 (5:19 am)
I've been considering installing " XM SATELLITE "
radio in my 03 LS but have been told by the installer that the antennae cannot be tied to the existing Lexus system. Can any one advise me? I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel is there a simple answer?
Go to Vaistech.com. They have an aftermarket unit for the Lexus that will enable you to install an XM unit controlled through the existing radio. Pricey, but I believe its what you are looking for. I was given the site because I was looking for the same thing to fit my 04 Sienna. Vaistech e-mailed me and said that it was only for the Lexus at this time.
