For a complete list of commands, please refer to your Owner's Manual. I plan to use both jointly when traveling. If not you must have only went around the block or only to the big Cities, or one of the States or an area that has half way descent coverage. Example… I am 10 miles from home headed west — direct shot to my house on a main county roadway. The recall began on March 21, 2013. I did not have any of the problems, you mentioned above.
I have to use my iphone or iPad for navigation. Have moved it up to Toyota and case manager has been assigned. By the way the Hawaiian Islands have Excellent coverage and I am sure I am going to fly my car there to use the System! Remedy Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. It often gives us informationit for another State. Hope this helps a few of you considering buying a Highlander but were leary due to the history of the evolution of Entune.
Does not show the lanes unless you touch screen making it a full screen and only lasting 15 seconds. Went on a 59 minute trip. Came back 4 hrs and 45 min later and did not reach my destination. This means the voice command can be less structured and still be understood. Not only does it have most of the problems reported above, but the directions it gives me are frequently horribly wrong.
Took it in to the dealer to fix and they had no clue — obviously very embarrassed by the garbage they are supposed to defend. At some point a bad driver may end up wrong direction on a one-way street…could be disasterous! There is far too much missing data and the system clearly did not go thru a human factors evaluation. I have a 2015 Venza and do find the map is significantly outdated. It seems from reading all the comments that the purchase of any Toyota product with a built in navigation system is a waste of money. The next time I go to buy a car, I will remember this experience, and am a lot more likely to buy from a competitor — hopefully one that provides quality electronics and also respects customers enough to react properly to mistakes. They said the update is pretty much straight forward: turn off the engine, swap the cards, and turn on the car again. Fortunately, the car has otherwise been great.
Once you have selected your model and model year-range you will see a wide variety of navigation discs that will work for you. Toyota take note: Texas has more cities than just Lubbock and Houston! Pretty sad I have to depend on google maps to get me where I need to go after buying a brand new car. It gets a little dicey when you are looking for a turn and depending on the nav to properly guide you. Use common sense when relying on information provided. See your Owner's Manual for further information.
And it rubs salt into the wound that Canada is not acknowledged as being part of the north American continent. So far, the dealer has not been able to help. Services and programming subject to change. The short version is that we went in with high hopes, but were somewhat underwhelmed. They should be ashamed of putting this garbage in expensive cars, and they should be a whole lot more ashamed of not doing anything about it after this time. I had the dealer update the maps in my 2013 Prius v.
Had to plug in Columbia, Illinois the night before and then reset for home once I got there. Finding other features now we are not happy with. My husband brought the car in again yesterday with pictures of the screens that we took when it would shut off. There are several one way streets near me have been that way for at least 5 yrs that it wants to go the wrong way down. That stupid navigation took us right through God forsaken New York city. Users will have the ability to opt in to various levels of services.
I entered the address of a hotel in Monterey and I was directed to leave the freeway and take local roads, miles away from the turnoff I knew to be correct. Do not initiate Remote Climate with people or pets in the vehicle. It was dangerous — shutting off in the middle of a late night drive when I really needed it. Many owners including me have contacted Toyota with complaints. Hopefully Toyota is working on some solutions. This thing is horrible, horrible!!! This is our first new car in 12 years last new car was a 2003 Toyota 4Runner , so I figured we were just so far behind in the technology.
I took it into the dealer and they installed an update which fixed those problems. It is the worse system ever! Someone in Japan must surely realize that their nav system is a joke. Maybe our dealer sets something differently on the cars he sells. Which I have to replace with a Garmin as far as I am concerned! I had a 2010 Ford Fusion with their Sync Nav system and it was awesome. Give me my Tahoe back. But as the Highlander is for the American marked it has proven a challenge to convert the navigation system so it can be used in Europe. The route selections it offers are poor choices.
On my simple commute to work, the nav sends me 5 miles out of my way to be on a highway. Using a older Garmin along with my Android phone there was no hesitation finding those locations. Current information and features may not be available in all locations, or on all receivers. For a complete list of commands, please refer to your Owner's Manual.
