What is this discussion about?
Toyota Camry Solara, Navigation System
#20 of 29 add to or replace
Sep 02, 2008 (1:51 pm)
On my 08 nav system when going to the quick access area for destination and touching one of the icons for a destination, the message "add to" or "replace" comes on and I have to pick one to go to my destination and then press guide and guidance starts. I usually press replace. The screen comes up with the destination that I originally tried to quick access then I touch guide and guidance starts.
Is this the way it works or am I doing something wrong? I think the procedure should be to press on the icon for a quick access point then the screen with the guide should come up and then touch guide and have guidance start. It is confusing to say the least.

For those of you who have a Solara (2008) with Navigation, I would like to know your experience with it. Please specify the year when you reply.
Do you find it to be accurate?
Any quirks or erroneous information?
#22 of 29 Solara Navigation Install/Upgrade (non-Nav to Nav)
Jun 18, 2009 (8:02 am)
I have a 2008 SLEv6 coupe that I just bought, and believe it or not I am now considering installing the OEM navigation.
Has anyone had any experience in performing such an upgrade? I found one website that had instructions but I just wanted to hear from someone who has actually experienced it.
How can I find out WHICH models will fit my car? Can I get the Camry one? What years? Hopefully someone out there knows.
(Hey, I wonder if I will need to change my name, now that I no longer drive a 2003 )

Iam thinking seriously about purchasing a 2008 Toyota Solara convertible SLE. The model has the navigation display but can i play DVD-videos on it as well. The Toyota saleman says i can but he wasnt 100% sure..lol nor could he locate any information to backup his claim that playing actual video DVD's were possible. Has anyone acually played DVD's on their system? and if so was id the JBL-Navigation system? Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

I have a 2004 Solara SLE with factory NAV/DVD. The dealer gave a tutorial, plus it came with a thick instruction manual. I have not had any problems with it at all. There are so many functions and features available. It has voice, too, but I prefer map view only, so I have it turned off. I upgraded the discs in 2009. This was very easy to do. I wonder if some of the posters here have models from Southeast Toyota (southern states). They install their own items, which are sometimes different from Toyota Corp. items. Had a system similar to the Solara model installed in our Scion Tc.

...and no, DVDs cannot be played in the DVD Nav system.
#27 of 29 Toyota Solara 2006 - problems after battery change
Jul 14, 2013 (10:49 am)
I purchased a certified used 2006 Solara Convertible with a nav system, but no nav dvd. After my husband changed the battery, several features no longer work. I can no longer access (or find) the calendar, my maintenance info. I no longer have display options. Also, the steering wheel buttons for changing modes or stations/tracks do not work, but the volume one does work. Any ideas for how to restore these features? Do I need the nav dvd for this? I am not even positive this is related to changing the battery, but also not positive it is coincidental.
Thanks for your help!

Not sure if this will help, but you can find a pretty detailed manual for the nav system on the 2006 Solara at the link below. Just choose the model and year and the tab for the manual will show up in the center of the screen.
