Started to pay attention and find this is more common problem than I thought. My response is to wait for an update! Run the installer program as you would for any other software. Well guess what, they sold it to me, in their Highlander and they should replace it with a working system!!! I entered an address going to Oakland and once I was near my destination, it kept telling me to turn left which is a complete circle. Hard to believe that in 2015 Toyota expects someone to read a 296 page user manual in order to use a navigation system! I purchased a 2015 limited with every possible option, and I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. But this model has some other features, I did not even know, they exist. By doing this I had a very user friendly nav system that had current data and also gave me the speed I was travelling in miles per hour. With the Highlander gps, I am forced to sort addresses by the date I installed it or by icon.
I don't know who is the company behind the map system, but I find it unique and useful how the upcoming intersecting freeways and Freeway exits pop up at the top in big Green sings resembling those you see in the actual road, and highlights not only which to take, but which lanes to stay in. There is a lag from when you make any input until it reacts, and in this age, that is inexcusable. Voice recognition is so bad that we do not use it. Toyota take note: Texas has more cities than just Lubbock and Houston! I also wish there was an easy way to tell the distance to an upcoming city on a 12 hour trip without having to pull the atlas out. But Toyota is fooling itself.
I love the comfort size and luxury of the Highlander but th system is awful. Their attitude is take it or leave it. Without exaggeration, Toyota has lost me as a future customer. Seem like that would be the easiest answer. Anyone else had this problem? Say the number corresponding to the destination you would like to find. I have to use my iphone or iPad for navigation. Do anyone know if the files available through the linked techinfo site would help fix that problem? You can use a built-in navigation map or Waze map, Apple map, or Google map.
Next time I will print out from google maps at home and think twice before I buy from toyota again. The vehicle itself is wonderful … but… the navigation system sucks. We'll see what happens next! You can almost forget about seeing it during the daytime. The manual says you can change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit in settings but it is not even there as an option on mine. I understand that this is a safety thing, but… Really? Every transition becomes a nightmare. Call me if you have same problem Barry Hoffman 617 584 5555 - Barry H.
While the maps are generally up-to-date to the year of the vehicle model, they can become incomplete over time as roads and points of interest are built, closed or changed. Apps and services subject to change at any time without notice. The toolbox will install to your Applications folder. You must have set up Home as a destination. Battery capacity will decrease with time and use. Put a piece of cardboard around the screen to shade it? However, as I said, other than that I get along fine with it.
Same thing on return going around St. There should be a recall. We could input specific cities for the weather and get it. I live my Rav4 2016, but the gps sucks! Always use safe driving practices and follow all traffic rules. I think this nav is giing to be a problem and back to my phone gps. Envious of friends who have a real navigation that recognizes vocal command, it notes road closures or heavy traffic and sends you confidently to a new path each time recalculating. I have had the problem of addresses not being in the system have to plug numbers in that are close.
I use my Iphone now for navigation at no charge and a lot more accuracy. And unlike Apple maps, there is no way that I have seen to report a miss-marked address. The navigation remain behind any update for at least one and a half year. Time to fix this problem! We just got back from a 4,200-mile road trip. This is my 5th Toyota.
Lastly, Although I love the car, I still would think twice if I would buy a Highlander when we move back again simply because of the navigation system — it is not optimal and after all — I paid for the entire package and that includes a reliable and functional navigation system. The adapter you buy has wiring harnesses that plug into the factory wiring so you can easily unplug it if you ever need to. There is a section for one screen only, but lasts only 20 seconds or so. Does anyone out there know the price to update the maps in a 2013 highlander limited? Provide your vehicle information above and see if there is an available update for your vehicle. Worked like a charm as the car's computer booted up from the flash drive. Toyota owes it customers a better upgrade. Has anyone found a website that we can let Toyota know of our concerns?
