I have seen many posts about this but none that says it was successfully done.
Is there any one out there who has successfully updated a Gen4 nav and audio with ML to a Gen5 system ML?
If there is please share any info relating to:
1. What parts are needed to be changed
2. what connections need to be rewired or added.
3. Is the finished upgrade fully working or are there features that are missing?

When driving on a freeway, the navigation system splits the screen to show a list of upcoming exits. The list shows Distance, Time, Exit Names and Street Names of the next 3 exits. I notice that the Street Names displays intermittently. I live in the Bay Area (Tri Valley) and in my location the Street Names doesn't show at all. But when I drive down to the south like San Jose, the Street Names started to display. Very strange since this doesn't issue happen to my 2006 Sienna. Does the navigation gets the data remotely? Or does it have anything to do with the version of the micro SD card? I reported the issue to the dealer and none of their Tech experts seems to know is causing this behavior. I was also told that I'm not the first one to report this issue.

Hey all, I went to replace my NAV DVD and got the infamous "will not eject issue". I searched and could not find any cure, so I uncovered my own.
First you will need to search online for the instructions on how to to find and expose the unit, once you have gotten the unit exposed, I would try to operate the eject slide several times while pushing in on the slide switch (you'll find out why later).
If this does not work you will have to remove the player face plate. I removed the entire unit and the bracket as well (you may not have to remove all this, but I did). What you are needing is the ability to remove the face plate. There were 4 wire pigtails in the back of my unit.
There are 2 tabs on top of the unit where the faceplate is snapped into place, push down on these with a flat blade screwdriver and gently pry the face plate away from the unit.Once you have the face plate off, to the left of the DVD opening you will see 2 micro-switches; one is a rocker and one push button. If you were to look at the back of the face plate while operating the eject slide switch, you will see that during this operation as the slide moves, it depresses both the rocker and the push button switches - this is what you need to replicate with your fingers. I simply plugged the wires back in the unit for power and used my fingers to operate the switches, bingo, opened right up; install the DVD and reinstall everything. You are now done.
My "new" 2013 GS 350 blinks three time for lane change. The manual indicates that I can change this to 5 or 7 blinks. It directs me to the NAV book which also indicates that I can make the adjustment.
Lots of indication, but never any actual instructions. Any ideas?
