#7 of 19 2008 Navigation work- arounds
Aug 06, 2008 (6:55 am)
Okay, does anybody have anything new to report.
I remember seeing that there is a pre-start workaround that must be done each and every time. The post directed to a google search, I have not been able to find it. Was I not understanding?
I really don't want to do the hardware work around.
Thanks for the info.

I am having difficulty entering a numbered street (ie 330 - 27th Street). What came up was a choice of highways and the like. What did I do wrong?
#10 of 19 2010 Higlander Limited Navigation System - AWFUL
Apr 12, 2010 (12:45 pm)
I just purchased a 2010 Highlander Limited with the added (& very expensive) Navigation System Package and I am totally disappointed in it. Not the vehicle, the sound system and the navigation system. The Nav is very awkward, not user friendly at all and antiquated in design. Also not demonstrated by salesman (for good reason apparently) The bluetooth/handsfree phone system connects with my phone OK but will not download my phonebook from my iphone. The sound system has poor radio reception and for having 9 speakers you would expect some richness to the sound but it is quite flat. The whole package, as I assumed it would work, is quite poorly coordinated and designed. When I expressed my disappointment to the Dealer's Customer Service gentleman & the salesman the response was basically "Oh Well" and "I'm sorry". I am so tired of the "gotchas" and the reversal of caring on the part of car dealerships once they have your money! What started out as a good experience has become a very big disappointment. Let the buyer beware

I bought one in January with NAV and XM. The thing is, the XM wasn't installed the day I picked it up, so I got to listen to FM for a couple of days until the XM part came in. FM sound was not great. I'd been driving an '06 Avalon with JBL 12-speaker system and expected about the same sound, or maybe a little less given the volume of the HL interior.
Guess what, after the XM receiver was installed it all sounded great. Once I tweaked the settings (bass/midrange/treble, fade and balance) it sounded even better and all is well.
I still need to read the manuals.
#13 of 19 2013 Navigation/Audio System Issue
Dec 20, 2012 (5:23 am)
Has anyone experienced their navigation/ audio system-shutting off (by itself) while in use and then rebooting? Just picked up my 2013 Highlander limited yesterday. Have driven about 400 miles since pick up and have had the navigation/audio system shut down and then reboot at least 5 times. It has done this both when there is a destination set and when there is no destination set. In all situations the system was connected to my iphone 4S via bluetooth and music was playing via bluetooth
any and all help will be appreciated!
#14 of 19 A terrible Nav system on the 2013

The 2013 Nav is awful. Arrival time at destination fluctuates wildly. System gets lost. Right turns instead of left, etc. I may have to get a Garmin and just leave the screen on audio.
