  1. Just put the newest version of the map DVD (came out this/last month - I think it's 9.1, but can't remember) in my 2006 GS300. Technically, my dealer wouldn't let me do it - they said they had to "install it for me" and charged me $7.50. Whatever...hopefully this isn't going to matter at the end of my question. I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that myself (or my wife for that matter) can use the Navi (and phone, if possible) functions while the car is in motion. 1) I've seen the thread where a forum member cut & spliced a few wires and got his to work. 2) I saw that ther
  2. Asking the dealer was my first try before he directed me to this forum, actually. They wouldn't do it for <ding> security issues. Way to hit that nail on the head.
  3. So, if I'm generation 4, does that mean that I won't have an update....or are there updated maps for Gen4 vehicles? Thanks - sorry for the ignorance. Never replaced a Navi DVD before.
  4. Great help guys - I really appreciate it. The Boxster didn't have any DRL's. The BMW did, but I had them disabled by the dealership and had them keep the Halo's on. The M35 never had any - not sure why - but I figured they would. Speaking of, I hated that car. Had to add that comment. I think that I'll wait for a little bit and see if I get sick of the DRL's on the Lexus. If so, I'll just upgrade to whiter bulbs like the ones suggested. But I'd never really thought about the fact that they'd help in parking garages. I noticed it the other day when I was in one - but I guess it just
  5. I just got my first ever Lexus (and it could be the best car I've ever owned)....but the seller in California (had it shipped to Ohio) thought he was doing me a favor by getting me a burned copy of the "most recent" Navi maps. As you could probably imagine, the DVD doesn't work properly. Half the time, I can't use any of the buttons/features, and it seems that, the hotter it is outside, the more problems it has with reading the disc. I guess I wish he would've left the old one in there for me as well, and while I've talked to him a couple times since the purchase, it doesn't seem he's too
  6. Just bought my first ever Lexus - after a Porsche Boxster, BMW 330, and most recently, an Infiniti M35....and I'm pretty convinced that this could be the best car I've ever owned. Just a couple things I'm trying to fix (this is the first of two threads).... I can't stand how the daytime running lights are a pale yellow. I either want to somehow disable them - or change the bulbs. First off, opinions, anyone? Secondly, if the answer is to somehow disable them, what's the "how" in somehow? Thanks in advance....
