Hey guys, I drive a 2007 Lexus IS350 with x-package.
My navigation screen suddenly went completely white. Just plain blank white. Everything still works though. The radio and everything functions. And even when you touch the screen itself you hear the feedback and noise that it's working. But the screen itself stays white and I can't see anything.
Anyone know what the problem may be?
I am looking to buy a 2017 NX Turbo. I like the base model as I don't think the Nav is going to be useful (gets poor reviews like most car Nava) and I use the Waze app on my phone for any Navigation. I do want to make sure the car is equipped for options down the road where I could possibly display waze or the iPhone map on my screen. Does anyone know if I would have to have the model with the Nav screen so it could display that or does the base model screen run apps? Any insight on running apps on the car is appreciated.
Also, do all models read texts out loud? And can you recite texts back?
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?

Gen 5 with DVD and Mark Levinson - note AUDIO button

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.
