#30 of 39 Viewing Playlist of MP3/iPod using car stereo system
Oct 22, 2007 (10:04 am)
I am new to this mp3 player or iPod. I am not sure if I can view the playlist, albums, artist, etc etc in the stereo system of the ES350 or do I have to control it using the audio device. If I can not control using the stereo system controls then it seems to be a pain because then I have to reach for the audio device which will be in the glove box which will be an inconvenience. Secondly, its not safe taking your eyes off the road like that and play with the iPod wheel instead of the steering wheel .. .
Another question, if I use an mp3 or iPod, will I atleast see the name of the song, artist etc etc on my stereo display ?

Auxiliary input socket for connecting MP3/iPod player is just an aux input. You don't get any controls with it, nor do you see any song info on your display. There are some after-market products, which can be connected to Lexus stereo hardware (one needs to open dashboard for that), which can provide additional functionality you are looking for. I once saw that on Ebay.
#32 of 39 CD player malfunction
Oct 30, 2007 (12:19 pm)
Recently my CD player has stopped playing right in the middle of a song. Then I can't eject the offending CD or switch to another CD. A day or two (or more) and the bad CD will eject itself.
I've had this happen with two different home-burned CD's, (no label) loaded in different positions in the changer.
Once the CD ejects, everything works fine until the next time it happens.
Anyone else experienced this?

Seemingly it is CD Burn quality. Use lower speed to burn your CDs and then try again. Player might continue to try to read while you are ejecting.

Is it possible to have either Sirius or XM Radio with the Mark Levinson system installed? Thanks.

You may be on to something. I tried burning it again at lower speed and haven't had any problems.
#36 of 39 Audio balance
Jan 05, 2008 (9:30 am)
The front/rear balance on my 07 ES350 UL has to be adjusted such that front/rear balance line on the screen you look at when you balance the audio is almost all the way to the rear of the car. Anyone else experience this? I've had it to the dealer, we tested two others and they both acted like mine. Dealer said they contacted Lexus and I haven't heard anything back.

Does anyone know the price on the Vais Tech? I would be interested in getting it simply to remove the annoying " I AGREE" button that must be pressed every time you start the car...
Also, does anyone know a way to modify the DVD display so you don't need to have the parking brake on, or have the car in park. This would be ideal to have for the kids to watch movies on those long drives... It really doesn't help me much when the car needs to be in park with the parking brake applied to get video!
Other than that, I love my ES 350!
#38 of 39 Bluetooth mp3 player and pfone

I bought the mp3 player with bluetooth. How can I listen the music in my car
(ES 350)? I have my cell connected to the car's bluetooth as well. I don't understand how the MP3 works, what I need to do? Thank you.

Read the owners manual? Or, my dealer said to call anytime there was something I didn't understand and they would explain it.
