I grab my cell phone and tell it where I want to go and it navigates me without questions. It rebooted 6 times in the same day traveling to Florida. Hard to believe that in 2015 Toyota expects someone to read a 296 page user manual in order to use a navigation system! It is so bad that I believe it is a safety hazard. I wonder whether or not their satellite signals may have confused and frustrated the computer. Hopefully Toyota is working on some solutions. Sin 3: Poor voice controls that make trying to speak an address into the system nearly impossible. I hope they have worked these kinks out in the newer models.
Been trying over a year for a resolution. I cannot rely on the navigation system, and I would like to have my money refunded. I feel cheated by Toyota and would gladly join in on a class action law suit. Hopefully I can find one! After a minute or so the screen light came on and it seems to look like it was downloading, after 10 to 15 seconds it went blank again. For more information on mpg, please see.
I owned an 07 Toyota Corolla before, but with 3 kids that wasn't practical. I showed this to dealer service and explained since it accepted the first street and then hung, there was a bug. This happens every day, often several times a day. Before I was a mile away from the dealer it crashed again. I have called Toyota about this and they do not seem concerned. Cuts off phone calls and streaming music. Toyota would be wise to buy the Chrysler system or hire their developers.
As for keeping the iphone paired — or at least connected — forget about it. It is to the point that I hate using it all. There is a lot of room with the back seats folded into the floor and with the middle seats pushed up close to the front row. Is anyone else having this problem? Use of Wi-Fi Connect subject to Verizon Wireless' Customer Agreement verizonwireless. By the way the Hawaiian Islands have Excellent coverage and I am sure I am going to fly my car there to use the System! Never have to repeat commands or address.
I do have the extended warranty. As you rightly put it, it reports multiple locations for a single address, and I on the very first day trying to use it found myself completely lost. My non-updated 2004 Lexus navigation system in another car works 300% better. We just learned it does not have Navigation on the main screen, my wife is shocked. Googling the issue led me to this site, which revealed this is a relatively new but known issue. It is really next to useless and aggravating as heck to have to try repeating things over and over. We are now relying on our phones navigation systems to get us there.
Dealer told me to try and capture the reboots on my cell phone, pretty damn ridiculous to accomplish while driving. They need to figure out the issue and get it fixed. In every case it worked! Too bad since mechanically Toyota cars are a pleasure to drive. I purchased a 2015 limited with every possible option, and I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. Of course I think it should be free, like my TomTom is but Toyota will not tell me the cost until l I commit to updating it. And that requirement is beyond ridiculous.
There is far too much missing data and the system clearly did not go thru a human factors evaluation. Also, the audio settings change back to factory constantly even though we have it set to not change settings when a phone connects. The nav system is, as stated, poor at best. This means the voice command can be less structured and still be understood. People are buying new Camry 2017 and replacing the factory installed unit with this one. Flashing blue light on cruise control knob. See your Owner's Manual for further information.
I did not have any of the problems, you mentioned above. For me so far, there is nothing to dislike about the system. Give me my Tahoe back. Hope it does not happen permanently after the warranty expires. If you're thinking about buying a van, Sienna is great! Voice recognition is a nightmare and, even if you program the address in by hand, the guidance is atrocious.
