Here's the procedure:
1. Hit MENU button to the right side of the Navi screen
2. Hit the VOLUME button on the touch screen
3. Once in the VOLUME menu, hit the SPEAKER icon in the upper left corner of the touch screen
4. Touch the lower left corner of the touch screen (there is no icon there).
5. Repeat step 3.
6. Repeat step 4.
This should open up the service menu.
7. ">On the service menu, touch and hold the Override button until you hear a beep. Once it beeps, the "Override" text on the button should become black instead of white.
You're done for this trip!

Hey thanks for the post.. gave it a try but was not successful. I suppose it is a timing / Procedure thing. Please allow me to ask for some clarifications:
Is there a difference when you say "Hit" vs "Touch" as in hold for a period of time? I tried this is various timings and nothing happened. I have the Mark L. system in a 2007 GS 450h, is there a variation to this for system config? I just want my CD MP3 list to work more than anything else. When driving my list goes away and I a left with the knob and single line display. Can there the be anything more distacting that that? Lexus has gone over the top for safety here and is in the way down. I am so looking for anything to improve the usablity of this system. Even if I need to cut some wires..

Sorry, I just copied the instructions from another Lexus board. I don't have my 450h yet, so I can't try it myself.

Apparently the override does not work for the latest firmware version (DVD version 6.1). I just picked up my 450h and tried the override; it did not work. Hopefully we'll see the instructions for our version posted soon...

I spent the Sunday afternoon at my local Lexus dealer and was VERY vocal with my dissapointment with paying $4000 for a system that they feel they need to administrate. It was leading to quite the unfavorable situation for the dealership and the discussion moved behind doors. I documented the meeting and followed up with 1- 800- 25- Lexus, customer service. Finished my day with filling out my Lexus survey with about as bad a feedback as I could. I am angry..dissapppointed and will follow this up with local complaints to my media on how I was fooled by Lexus into buying something for my car that worked perfectly in the showroom but fails to even come close with ownership and practical fuctionality. I want Lexus to fix this or I will advertise just how BAD this really is every moment I own this car. Such a mixed emotion with such a really cool car. I love the mechanics and hate it everytime I have to drive it.. such a shame. I have been a toyota owner for life but will NEVER buy again from a brand that wants "Admin rights" to my life after I pay for them. What is next? removing the head light switch in the fear we might not be responsible enough to turn them on when it gets dark. Please !!!! I can only ask that you turn up the heat as I did and make them realize what a mistake this is. I have 2000 miles and it gets worse by the mile. Voice your disdain and hopefully we can make a change.

There are many posts all over the net stating that the 6.1 version doesn't have the override. Similarly, there are many post of people successfully integrating the 5.x system with the 6.1 data and thus restoring the override, but using the newer map data.
Personally, I'm just waiting for someone to find the key sequence for 6.1... gota figure it's just a matter of time before someone figures it out.

While anyone's at it complaining to Lexus about this issue, please mention (if you agree with my assessment) the ridiculously poor performance of the low beam HID's. I've complained, saying I think it's worthy of a recall, but they politely told me that no one else has complained so it must not be an issue.

Just FYI: my Treo 700 connects quite easily using Bluetooth, every time.
