  1. Ed, What year is your LX? I had a similar condition on my 04 LX and the dealer ended up replacing the entire Nav. screen. I know that there a TSB for this on certain years of LC/LX.
  2. Thanks once again! I tried this over the weekend and works great. It's great that you can enable this while in motion and it's set (until you cycle the ignition). I also saw that there's other functions, but didn't mess with them. One more thing... would you happen to know how to enable this same mode on earlier LX/LC, like an 03? CTapia
  3. Can you please share the details on how to bypass the Nav system for destination while moving? ← A set of button pushes can override the lockout on most 2004,2005, & 2006 Lexus NAVs until the next time the vehicle is restarted by pushing the buttons in the following order: menu > volume > top left of screen, bottom left, top left, bottom left > override ((hold for several seconds until override is highlighted and beep occurs) > back. Destinations can then be entered while moving. ← Thanks! From memory, I recall the menu button being an actual button (drivers side) but the volume is just a knob and what exactly do you mean by "top left of the screen, bottom left, top left etc"... are these buttons on the Nav screen? Lastly, is this in the manual?

  5. Mechanoman, Did you ever find a solution to this? I have an 04 LX470 and did the fix found here and works great. I'm wondering if this would apply to your 06 as well. 04 LX470 DVD Bybass
  6. Security_guy, Sorry, I don't have the answer, but perhaps a few suggestions. Perhaps you connections were not solid or are intermitting and causing the changer to hang up. Disconnecting the battery will reset the changer and then works ok until you loose connection and then hangs up again. I would first review you connections and make sure that they are soldered or correctly crimped and that the ground is solid (metal to metal). If that checks out fine and the condition still exist, you can then then undo the DVD bypass and see if the condition is eliminated. Please let us know the outcome out of this. CTapia 04 LX470 ← Thanks CTapia Will give it a try and report back. Security_Guy 04 Land Cruiser ← Security_Guy, Any updates to this? Did you resolve the CD/DVD Changer issue that you had? CTapia ← CTapia, I think it is fixed. So far so good. I simply reinforced the taped the cut wire and tightened the grounding. Cross your fingers for me. Thanks.... Security_Guy ← Good to hear that! I just did mine last night. Did a quick test drive and everything works good. It great that we can now dial out from the screen while in motion.

  8. Dealer only keeps current (2006) brochures and I was looking for an 04 version. I already found someone with one. Thanks! CTapia
  9. What year LX do you have? Did you buy the DVD bypass module from e-bay? Where did you tap into to get a video out signal? CTapia
  10. Awsome! Please post here or P.M me. Thanks again! CTapia
  11. Any chance that anyone might have an 04 Lexus LX470 sales brochure laying around? I tried ebay, googled searched for the PDF file, called Lexus and came up empty. Thanks in advance! CTapia
  12. Nightvision is a $2000 +- option on the 03-06 LX470. Basically an infrared camera that captures the reflected light of an object (animal, debris etc..) and project the images on the lower portion of the drivers windshield. It's mainly useful on long dark roads for added safety. CTapia 04 LX470
  13. I took delivery of my 2004 LX from Rallye Lexus (Glen Cove, NY) exactly one year ago. Expect between $4,000 - $5,000 off the sticker. Let us know how you make out. Good Luck! ← DB S600, Sorry for hijacking the thread, but do you happen to have an extra copy of the the sales/marketing brochure for the 04 Lexus LX470? We just bought a used one and would love to get a hold of one. shoot me an e-mail at candido_tapia@yahoo.com. I would like to discuss the crackling/popping sound that you had/have on your 04. Thanks CTapia

  15. Compuz1, Do keep us updated and share your results regarding the added bluetooth functions while the vehicle is in motion. We just purchased an 04 LX470 and will eventually get around to doing this mod. Thanks in advance! CTapia
