#448 of 461 Malfunction Navigation System
May 26, 2013 (3:37 am)
I have a 2012 Toyota Avalon Limited and I'm having a problem with the Navigation System in it.
Here is my question: How do you get from Point A to Point B without the GPS telling you to take
every exit you are approaching long before you arrive at the actual exit you need to take? For example, if I need to take Exit #12 the GPS will tell me to take all the exits from 1 to ll. I purchased the car new in July of 2012 and the GPS never done this in the past. It just started
doing this last week on our last vacation. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. From what I can tell, you'll need to go in and tell it how you want it to navigate for for. By this I mean, Highways (toll roads), back roads and so forth.
Also, you'll need to notice when it tells you there are 3 routes chosen and you choose a route, it's going to follow that route. You can go in and place a marker at a point, and it will then go that route.
I haven't checked this out yet, but here is what looks like an OUTSTANDING site to watch video's on the system?

#453 of 461 Nav Disc for Avalon
Aug 28, 2013 (1:28 pm)
I discovered something today when I called the local Toyota dealer to inquire about upgrading the disc in my 2011 Avalon. The parts manager said that the only disc available now is the 2012 version. He said that the 2013 disc will not be available until November. He said that is the typical upgrade date for new discs. It goes without saying that I put my order on hold.

The only thing I'd say to this is É Should be in around November?
While I'm not having enough issues to worry about, I'd be leery about the time table. Maybe others can chime in on if they purchased over the years and when.
Other posts have noted, that while the latest is nice, it's still a year or more away from the newest data?
#455 of 461 2005 Limited Control pad failure???
Sep 03, 2013 (5:47 am)
Hi all, I have a 2005 Avalon and have had nothing but problems with the toggle for typing etc. I have had the unit replaced because I just couldn't type anymore. Now we are back to the same thing and it's basicaly useless I can't type again. it seems to me to be a manufatucing flaw. To replace the unit is about 900.00 and that is without updating the map which I hear has 2003 data on the 2005 cars.. Any feedback would be appreciated, the car is too old now to have it repaired again...
