#74 of 92 CD Navigation 2003 LS430 Installation
Nov 16, 2009 (11:02 am)
Ok, after reading several posts here I'm confused. I just bought my mother the 2010 navigation CD upgrade for her 2003 LS430. I thought it would make a nice birthday present even though it financially set me back.
My question is how to install it (of course, it doesn't come with instructions), currently it has the original 2003 navigation CD loaded. I don't know if I need to use the override button first, if I have to dive into the trunk in order to swap out the CD's... or both! I assume that once the system reads the new CD it must stay in the car in order for it to work.
Can someone please help me as I really don't want to pay 1/2 hour of labor which is what all the dealers want to charge. I thought it was pretty steep buying the upgrade version ($180+tx) just to be hit with a $62+ labor fee on top of the CD. I found it strange how every dealer wants to make more than the other as each price is significantly different!
Thanks for any help you may be able to send my way.

The drive unit is under the trunk floor towards the right (passenger) side. Remove the panel. The drive unit is held down by two 10 mm bolts. Remove them and tilt the drive unit up to access the door. Eject old disk and replace with new disk. Close door and bolt the drive unit back down. Turn ignition switch to ACC and wait for the new data to be loaded. Easy!

Thank you for the information, my brother was able to install it. My mother is anxious to drive somewhere just to try it out! She relies heavily on the navigation to save her gas and time. She's so happy with her new update! Great job!! ..............Smiles
