#1 of 19 Lexus GX470 Navigation Restrictions while Driving
Apr 01, 2007 (11:27 am)
Is there a way to bypass or disable navigation restrictions while driving. I hope spoken with Lexus discretely and they disclaim this activity and mention any changes to software will void warranty. However, it was indirectly mentioned that an electronic jumper may accomplish my objective. Though quite frankly I am in agreement with this restriction conceptually, but it is too restrictive, literally navigation is unusable while driving even for passengers.

Do you mean the cut the wire/install a switch hack that may void the warranty? (link)
Or the make a new DVD disk with a old version start-up file trick?
#5 of 19 Navigational System problems
Jul 22, 2008 (8:10 am)
I have a 2004 GX470, and the nav system has always had errors. Likes to lose me and put me in unknown places. Recently updated the disc and it is worse than the original one. I've read the manual, made sure settings/region is correct and use the heck out of the calibration/recalibration tool. Still have problems with system losing its place and not finding GPS satellite position. Live in large enough metropolitan city and travel to large cities. Satellite should find me, but it is always lost. Any other owners with this problem and any solutions?
#6 of 19 what happens if I disconnect the battery to reset the electrical system
Jul 22, 2008 (3:11 pm)
I continue to experience unexplained occasional electrical problems with my 2004 GX470. A friend suggested I disconnect the battery to reset the electrical system. WILL THIS CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS when the system is reset?
Any suggestions or recommendations?
#7 of 19 wrong routing with gx470 Nav
Aug 19, 2008 (6:09 am)
I have 08 gx470 with Nav system. Recently I drove from Dallas(TX) to Rogers (AR). The Nave system showed me 3 routes which are entirely different from yahoo or google maps. Even the shortest/fastest route show and excess of 70 miles. I took the Quick1 and I drove an extra 90 miles (extra 90 mins). While return I followed the yahoo map and I was back in less than 5 hours, compared to 6.5 hours.
Did anybody else experience this before. Cn u try this by your nav system too.

The navigation lady that lives under the seat used to talk to me ... she doesn't do it any more...
Her directions seem to be OK on the screen
Does anyone know how I can get her back?

May be she was laid off.
But seriously, go to Options Menu and look for the Guidance Volume setting.
