#42 of 91 GPS Disc problems
Apr 21, 2008 (7:30 pm)
We bought an off market 7.1 update for our 2002 Lexus SC430 and it loaded with no problems and was working, but 5 minutes later, it's showing disc not found. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I feel like there must be some kind of setting conflict or something. Any ideas?

Try removing the disc, be sure the shiney face is clean and or wash it off, dry it with a lint free rag and reinsert.
#44 of 91 2001 LS 430 Navigation System Update
May 20, 2008 (5:11 am)
I have a 2001 LS 430 and I would like to install more current software in the GPS navigation system. The dealer wants over $400.00 for the most current upgrade. Expensive!! Does anyone know of an after market company that sells software compatible with Lexus Navigation systems?
#45 of 91 ECU and DVD Disk needed for Navagation system
Aug 24, 2008 (6:31 am)
I have a 2002 LS 430 and had it in for 120,000 mile service yesterday. Last week my Navigation system had posted a message on the screen that is was unable to read the data, check the DVD. My service manager informed me that I needed a new ECU computer chip and DVD. Cost $2400 OUCH! Needless to say I passed. Does anyone know of mechanics, etc in the Central Masschuetts area that work on Lexus's and can tackle this problem for a reasonable price?
Thanks for your help.

Why does my LS 430 navigation system continually want to take me off of the highway and take me through local roads? I went from Philadelphia to Baltimore and, obviously, I95 is the way to go but it kept telling me to get off and get onto other roads. Is there a setting to tell it to use highways only and, conversely, use local roads? Thanks!

There is a page with settings of route preference such as Allow Toll Roads, Allow Ferry, Allow Major Roads etc.

#50 of 91 Override Nav
Nov 10, 2008 (9:16 pm)
I bought a 2006 LS 430, is there a way to override the Nav System so I can input address while the vehicle is moving? Also, how do I get the DVD upgrade for the Navigiation System?

The suggested navigation override procedure (Menu->System Options-> top left -> bottom left-> top left -> bottom left-> bottom right-> override) works in my 2001 LS430. The problem is that it needs to be performed prior to moving otherwise the System Options button is disabled in motion. On my wife's new GS430 it can be performed (a somewhat different procedure) while in motion.
