#86 of 103 highlander hybrid navigation system reception problems
May 27, 2007 (12:34 pm)
Heya! This is my first posting here so I hope I am doing this right!
I have a 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid (the 7 seat version if that makes any difference). I have the navigation system in it, and it seems to get really bad reception. Pretty often, it doesn't get a GPS signal and the nav system gets all confused about where I am. (It will think I'm across town or something!)
I had a nav system in my previous car (a Volvo XC90) and it just always had a signal and was always right.
I took this one in to the dealership to ask if they could check that the antenna is all hooked up right and everything. They said it looked fine (and of course, my problem is only intermittent, so they couldn't replicate it).
Anyway, I just wanted to ask whether anyone else has this problem, and if there is a solution? Is there a better antenna I could put on there or something? Thanks!

Does the GPS icon show on the map display? If the reception is intermittent the following items could degrade the positioning accuracy: Radar detectors, FM modulated adaptors for XM, Sirius or MP3 players, electronic toll pass devices and direct connect iPod interface devices cause positioning issues when these devices are near the center of the dash. If you have any of these near the center of the dash move them to either side of the dash.

1. Store bought CDs do not include CD text unless they are from Sony/BMG. If so, your CD drive must have the CD text logo on it to read the data. Very few OEM or aftermarket include this technology.
2. Burned CD-Rs include ID3 tag information if you used Windows Media Player (WMP) or Nero burning software. The ID3 tag will display the artist, track title, etc. only if your CD player is MP3 or WMA compatible.
3. The display changes from night mode to day mode automatically.

I have the 2006 HH w/ nav, but I can,t delete 4 memory points that show a flag next to address. I go to menu, set up delete previous destinations and it will delete those address, but I also have memory points which show a flag next to address that will not delete, no matter what I do. It seems like its in a permanet memory mode. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Frank

The memory points can be deleted from: Menu, My Places.
#91 of 103 Setting Clock and Navigation ETA is Off
Dec 26, 2008 (1:20 pm)
I have a 2008 HH. When I set the clock back an hour for daylight savings, my clock on the navigation is no longer in synch. So if I set a destination that is 100 miles away and would take 2 hours, the estimated arrival time will be 3 hours out rather than two. Any idea how to correct?
#92 of 103 Bluetooth set up
Feb 27, 2009 (9:02 am)
I have an 08 Highlander Hybrid with Nav and am trying to get it to accept my phone numbers from my phone. How long does it take to transfer the phone numbers from your phone to the Toyota phone log. It seems like it should be fast to me, but after several miniutes it still shows transfering. It doesn't say it but is there something I need to do on my phone to make the transfer?

#94 of 103 Sirius for 2006 Highlander Hybrid with Navigation?
Sep 07, 2009 (4:47 am)
Anyone try this solution to adding Sirius to the factory head unit of a 2006 Highlander Hybrid with nav? If so, can you post a picture of the nav screen tuning Sirius. If not, does it look like it would work?
#95 of 103 Update GPS data
Sep 30, 2009 (11:16 am)
Our 08 Highlander Hybrid's GPS data is not up to date. Is there a new data disc available? If so, is it eligible to be replaced under the existing warranty?
