Only one way to "correct" the problem is to install the latest dvd into the unit in the trunk (left side, under the cover). However, I would NOT do it myself because many people have ended up with problems not only related to the map system alone. Remember, your dashboard screen serves several functions. Local cost is about $200 for the dvd but, if you choose to go this route have the dealer do the installation because if a problem arises the dime will be on them. I simply keep my $100 Magellan unit in the car if I really need to have an exact address. In this regard Toyota has really screwed up on what is otherwise a very fine car.

Okay, maybe it's not good for the driver to enter information while driving but what about the passenger? Couldn't someone figure out that if a passenger is in the passenger's seat they could enter information? The seat belt bell will ring if someone is in that seat without their belt in place so information is available somewhere! Maybe a button on the far right side of the dash could be pushed to allow the passenger to enter information. With all the hoops you have to jump through to turn off the seat belt bell seems like a small process to allow the passenger to enter route info. Just a thought.

#420 of 461 What's the newest version?
Aug 17, 2012 (4:28 am)
How can you find out which version you have? Is it listed on the DVD?
What is the newest, and is it much better?
PS Is it worth it to upgrade or just rough it out until my 2013 get's here:)?

Anyone with knowledge of a DVD Nav player PN 86841-41020 for sale at a reasonable price? This is a Gen 3 unit and apparently no other Gen 3 unit will work on the Avalon. Thanks

why doesn't the clock change automatically when you set the nav system for Day light savings time? When you turn it off nothing happens as well...
The only fix was to manually change the clock..
Anyone have an easy solution?
