I have had my RX350 for over 10,000 miles and it took a month or two to comfortably learn all of the Nav system's functions. The main complaint I have is that once the vehicle is moving, about 95% of the touch screen inputs are disabled - they only work when you come to a stop. The alternative is to use voice commands, but these are misunderstood nearly half the time. The Destination delete function requires at least three separate screen touches: Press Route button, then select Delete, then confirm with a Yes. So make sure you are following the correct procedure. I have seen one rare problem that occurs about once every two or three months - the GPS satellite loses track of the vehicle! I'll look down at the screen and it will show me driving through the middle of a forrest or in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay (I live in Maryland, USA). This problem has always self-corrected in about 30 minutes, and I haven't addressed the issue with a dealer yet. My advice is to read the Navigation Guide (the complete manual, not just the quick start guide) while sitting in the vehicle in your driveway to become very familiar with all features. If something does not work properly, write down the steps you followed and how the system responded and give this detail to the dealer. If they don't help - contact a new Lexus dealer. Good luck!

I have been driving my RX350 for over a year now (7500 miles) and have started noticing GPS problems recently. The GPS just loses track of the vehicle...this happened for 2-3 days and then it self-corrected for 1 day. It's lost track again for the last 3 days.
Do I need to take it to a dealer?

I have a 400h with the 4th gen nav system. Is their anyway to upgrade it to the new version?

There is an override that allows you to use the navigation system while moving. It works on my 05 RX330. Not sure about the RX350. Go to the RX330 forum and search for post #3734.

Please take your vehicle to your Lexus dealer and inquire about TSIB EL013-06. Their is a fix to resolve the issue you are experiencing.

I tried this override on my 07 RX350, and it didn't work. If anyone has the override instructions on how to do this on an RX350, it would be appreciated.
#11 of 43 Navigation system froze in the hot car(?)
Jul 23, 2007 (8:28 am)
I have the 2007 RX350. My car was sitting outside for an afternoon. I got in and tried to use the navigation system. It 'froze' on the initial disclaimer screen where you must touch the 'I agree'. The 'I agree' was blacked out and the screen would not move. After going down the road about 5 minutes the navigation came to life on it's own. Anyone have similiar experiences?
#12 of 43 The Lexus Override
Jul 25, 2007 (9:32 pm)
I was pissed about the lack of an override (Lexus has had it since 2000) so I started LexusOverride.com . Our efforts are to get the Override restored, or get a mass trade-in to another manufacturer. You can register and get updates on the Override situation for 2007 owners there.
