You should be alright with the backup camera problem. Our 2004 Sienna's backup camera went out a couple years ago and we got a special price (like $100) under our extended warrantee, which didn't cover external electronics, go figure. Anyway, about 8 months later there was a service bulletin which said that the camera would be covered in any case if it failed (too late for us). So I would check at least that at the dealership. By any chance was the seat belt replaced because it had trouble retracting? The rider side has this issue on our Sienna and it also was not covered by the extended warantee, so I'm making the kids deal with it ongoing. The solution is to pull up or down on the height adjuster at the point where it retracts into the side of the car as you pull mightily on the strap. You might consider brow beating the Toyota service into fixing problems as a good faith effort to prevent you from dumping Toyota for something else, like a Honda Odyssey.

#214 of 257 Navigation Override
Feb 16, 2010 (7:13 am)
After years of making hybrid discs with the older 5.1 loading.kwi file and dealing with its inherrent antiquites I purchased a LockPick 2WF from Coastaltech. It allows "the Passenger" to use the navigation while moving and allows the "front Passenger" to watch the movie playing on the rear entertaiment screen.
My newest disc GEN 5 V9.1 continues to improve upon the voice commands for both voice dialing and points of interest. The bluetooth compatability is much improved over version 7.1 & 8.1.

I made a hybrid disk using the 5.1 loading.kwi file to allow the GPS to be used by the passenger while my Toyota Sienna is moving. However, I could never get the DVD to work on the front screen while moving. With your new hybrid disk, when the passenger watches the movie playing on the rear entertainment screen, does it affect the GPS? I thought there was a signal from a unit below the passenger seat that indicated car movement to the DVD/GS unit and it had to be tricked into thinking the car was moving to allow the DVD to play on the front screen. However, when one did that, the GPS lost track of where it was. Does your hybrid disk over come that set back? If it does, how does one make the disk your are talking about, or are you selling it. If you are, what are you asking? I wouldn't mind either making one or buying a hybrid disk. Thanks!

The only way I was able to view the movie on the front screen was with a Lockpick 2WF. No hybrid would allow it. I believe Coastaltech interrupts the signal you speak of. The newer v9.1 firmware gave me features I wasn't willing to give up with 5.1 loading.kwi. I apologize if I mislead or wasn't clear about the firmware

I have this same issue as well. I was able to eject the map DVD when it was attempting an initialization sequence. I've seen some posts regarding this issue on a few different sites, but never any resolution. Anyone find one?

I purchased and installed a gen4 ver. 09.1 U24 disc and want to be able to use nav functions while in motion.
Any idea why the disk modification hack did not work for me? I can now access the overide menu however the search by address is inoperative although not grayed out along with several other things. It appears the problem is tied to location (area?) to search. I used my original gen4 ver. 5.1 U20 disk.

If you do NOT have a radar detector on or near the center of the dash, and the current map version installed is V5.1 (86271-53020), a new DVD map disc is necessary to correct this condition. I suggest obtaining the newest version V9.1 (86271-GEN05-09) from a Toyota dealership at $199.
If you don't want the newest data you can buy a used version on ebay. First, the 10 digit PN must be 86271-5302X. The last digit must be a 1 or higher. Second, if you buy another disc with a different suffix (-5302x) it will cause issues!
When you get your new disc just eject the old one and insert the new disc. It will automatically boot up the new software.
#220 of 257 upgrade Navi System in 2008 Toy Sienna XLE Limited

How to upgrade the Navi in this vehicle. I bought it last month and It is 3 yrs old and is not showing many new addresses. So, want to upgrade. How much does it cost? Can I do it myself? If so, how and where can I get the DVD for the upgrade? It has only 28K miles - and so still under warranty. Does it covered by warranty? Do I need to take it to Toyota dealer? Thanks in Advance.

It's fairly easy, if not expensive. Just go to your Toyota dealer and tell them which model and year you have and they can look it up. Most probably they will have to order it, for about $200. It won't be under warrantee.
I have a 2004 Sienna and the disk drive is under the passenger side front seat and the access door faces toward the back of the unit. It's easier with a flashlight in hand to see everything. There is (on mine, anyway) a switch that you slide to the side to expose the DVD eject button. Push the button and swap the disks and in a few seconds you should be semi- up-to-date (it will still be behind to some degree).
