Hm, not sure but I just had an issue when I got a new battery. My unit did not function/would not open/would not read the disc, etc. When I drove the car the next day, after about 15 minutes, the unit opened by itself!! I guess from me pushing the "open" button earlier? For some reason it took the unit a while to "warm up"?? When the unit opened I was able to eject the disc, which was the 2010 Denso update disc. I had to put my original disc back into the unit, let it load, then take it out and put in the updated disc to get things back to normal. Maybe disconnect/reconnect the battery will force your system back to factory settings and allow the CD to be ejected? Let me know if/when you get it out.

I have a 2004 LC and would like to install a satellite enabled radio instead of the JBL already installed. I love the sound quality of the JBL but want to listen to XM while on the road.
Has anyone installed a satellite radio without the cumbersome wires and hookups that many post market satellite/ipod hookups require?? If so, what brand and model radio did you use. Did you have any problems?
Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!!

#171 of 209 1997 LC Japanese vs US navigation
Jun 20, 2011 (2:23 am)
I have a cousin who has a 97 LC with a navi systems that controls all electronics (navigation, AC, stereo, radio etc) in Japanese. Is there a way that I can purchase a navi system with English language for 1997 LC (assuming I can find one either at a dealership or junkyard)? The radio uses a different frequency and has a horrible connection. The thing is, he doesn't understand any Japanese, he understand English however. The car was imported to Indonesia directly from Japan. Thank you.

I am upgrading a 2001 Landcruiser's navigation DVD. Any advice on updates? Did yours work? Any problems?

I didn't see a reply giving advice, but I would check with the company Video Service Stop. They would be able to tell you whether they have fixed this type of problem. We had a disk reading error and sent our part off. It was fixed and sent back and the problem was resolved. Much less than the dealer quoted.

I bought a new disc and updated it myself. Worked out fine, was simple. I did buy it from a reputable Toyota dealer. I can recommend someone if you'd like. It was simple. Do keep the original disc, though. After a battery change, the DVDNAV would not reboot without the original disc. This was something even the dealer did not know about. Good luck!

Do not buy a 'bootleg' replacement DVD....I bought one on Ebay and it didn't work.....I did get a refund. I then bought an upgrade DVD from a Toyota dealer and changed it myself. My LC is a 2002 and the DVD player is under the front passenger seat. Access it from the rear of the seat. Eject the existing DVD and then insert the new one. Works fine.

I have an '03 and considered an upgrade--what does toyota charge for a factory nav disc update and is it worth it? A dealer employee thought a garmin is the way to go as the new disc may not provide that much more info/detail. Agree?

I paid about 200 for my update, about a year ago. I have a 2004, and waited until 2010 to update. (Updates are available every 2 years). It is a matter of preference. The Garmin is fine, so is the Magellin - just make sure you register them on your PC; if you don't, after a few months they won't work. Being portable is a plus if you drive more than one car, use a rental, etc. I decided to upgrade when I noticed I was "off-roading" too much, with new lanes/interchanges that had been built over the last 6 years. After the disc upgrade, I did notice that traffic conditions were more accurate, the system did a better job in re-routing me depending on traffic.
I never use the voice-commands, so I cannot comment on them. (they annoy me, actually!!)
One thing I like about the NAVDVD is that the screen is big, and I can split the screen to get a view of the overall route on the left, then the detailed view on the right, or even a "heads up" view.
