#74 of 79 transfering Nav data to a new Nav
Sep 23, 2009 (3:33 am)
Does any one know if it's possible to transfer the data in the old car's nav to the new car's nav system? I got hundreds of POI & addresses I like to keep.
#75 of 79 RX 400H Nav System

Lexus wants $200.00 to update the Map CD in my 2006 RX 400H. Does anyone know if there is a way to download the updated Maps to a CD for Version 5.1? Evidently there is one for Toyotas, but the Lexus doesn't recognize it. It seems like it should since the Lexus is a Toyota. Has anyone figured out how to get updated Maps without paying $200.00?

My Lexus dealer in Van Nuys, CA, Keyes Lexus wants $300 plus $130 to install the update for my 2006 Lexus 400H. I have seen Ebay motors selling the newest navigation update 9.1 by Lexus for $198.95 but there is no instruction on how to update using the new disc. Also read somewhere that the Lexus Navigation system cannot be updated by anyone but the dealer. If anyone know how to update the Nav system, I sure would like to know how. Thanks.

I just bought the 7.1 version on Ebay. The DVD for the gps is in the rear trunk in the compartment under the mat on the right, facing front so you can't see it from the back. You slide a button to the side and the DVD pops up. You put the new DVD in and slide the switch back and it automatically loads. (You have to have the key turned on for the DVD to load and unload).
#78 of 79 Bluetooth phonebook upgrade
Jul 15, 2011 (6:10 am)
I am in the process of upgrading my Blackberry to a Droid. I have deleted all of the old phones and have paired the droid. When it comes times to transferring the phonebook, the Nav system says to "upload your phonebook with your phone". There is nothing in the manual regarding the transfer or how to do this. I spoke to the Droid people and they said that this is an issue with the car and not the phone. Any ideas?
#79 of 79 Shift to lower resolution GPS in RX400h
Dec 21, 2011 (6:25 pm)
I bought an RX400h in December, 2010. The GPS showed good detail including showing block-by-block detail right to my driveway. In approximately November, 2011 the level of detail displayed by the GPS was lost. Instead, the screen showed no detail at all, with many streets that had been in the previous display, no longer shown. The nearest street shown is now more than 1/2 mile from my house.
Contacting Lexus (the local dealer and then the California HQ) gave no satisfaction. Each Lexus rep said that the GPS couldn't change. Each offered a GPS upgrade for $300.
Has anyone else had this problem?
P.S. The only other thing that has changed is I declined to renew the Sirius subscription that has been free up to now.
