A gps is a tool we paid good money for. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs with warranty issue. Example… I am 10 miles from home headed west — direct shot to my house on a main county roadway. Are the Toyota maps really that incomplete? And I am still driving my 17 year old Toyota Camry. So i tried a couple of things. The navigation remain behind any update for at least one and a half year. That nav system was so disappointing that we lost confidence in Toyota, and were expecting other issues to surface.
On a recent trip from mid-Nebraska to St. I tried it to return home the next day and it took me though town, when the freeway entrance toward home was less than a half mile away. Buyer is responsible for return shipping fee. This problem is made worse by the , which means that I either have to stop the car or struggle to get the system to understand me. It is to the point that I hate using it all.
Exoected more for what we paid for this car!!! Who wants to pay for something that works this poorly?!?!? Locking one out of the gps when in motion is rediculous. Their attitude is take it or leave it. Luckily I had iPhone, iPad and laptop for backup. Choose the Highlander Sport for its handling, gas mileage while still providing an excellent engine and comfort. Now that I know so many people are complaining about the problems I am having I wonder if a class action suit may have to be started to resolve these issues.
The manual says you can change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit in settings but it is not even there as an option on mine. I plugged in a 12v-5v usb adapter next to it and it works much better. Please investigate the coverage before you invest in the Nav or updates. I have a 2015 Venza and do find the map is significantly outdated. They should be ashamed of putting this garbage in expensive cars, and they should be a whole lot more ashamed of not doing anything about it after this time. A 10 year old Garmin would be better than the Highlander navigation system.
Fortunately, I checked Google Maps before starting and figured it out. I wish I had stood my ground and gotten rid of it for the chilled seats. I remember driving my brand new Camry 2000 with my wife next to me with the map on her lap. As far as the bypass cable is concerned, I installed one the first week I had the Highlander. There is far too much missing data and the system clearly did not go thru a human factors evaluation. Went on a 59 minute trip.
I understand that this is a safety thing, but… Really? So if you were travelling how would you even know what the closest town to the address is? It took me 9 tries to reconnect that time, including deleting Toyota from my iphone settings and doing a complete re-pairing. After entering each address, the system gave us an option to replace the destination or add to the current itinerary at a point in the journey of our choosing. Was told to take 121 thru Dallas to Ft. For voice recognition, it is so distractive and frustrating to operate handsfree, that I think it is safer not to use it. My husband brought the car in again yesterday with pictures of the screens that we took when it would shut off. I live my Rav4 2016, but the gps sucks! The lag time is so bad I pass the destination.
It is the worse system ever! Sure, in some cases your best option will be to backtrack. Came back 4 hrs and 45 min later and did not reach my destination. There should be a recall. Toyota take note: Texas has more cities than just Lubbock and Houston! I use my android phone. Pretty bad that a Samsung Galaxy 5 smartphone has more function than the big bulky Toyota digital screen that comes in this vehicle. It gets upset if you change course at all and keeps trying to go back to the original course.
I have a Ford F250 Platinum 2017 and if you make a wrong turn it will guide you the shortest route back to where you want to go…It is great…. It is unclear as to whether or not they can or will ever fix it. This thing is horrible, horrible!!! This is our first new car in 12 years last new car was a 2003 Toyota 4Runner , so I figured we were just so far behind in the technology. Waze and google maps are much better. Are you happy with it? I would have to stop, turn the engine off, and restart for the maps to load. Very disappointing on what is otherwise a great vehicle. There are several one way streets near me have been that way for at least 5 yrs that it wants to go the wrong way down.
It often gives us informationit for another State. Love my Highlander but would not buy the upgrade package again due to operational issues and map upgrade costs. That stupid navigation took us right through God forsaken New York city. They occur every so often on the roads but with no seeming pattern. It does not anticipate traffic.
The Highlander shows the suggested route in blue, and reverts to a split screen when approaching an intersection to show drivers a detailed close-up of where to go. Upon arriving at our second location, we shut down the Highlander's engine completely and left the car. Looked at google maps before I left and had an idea of where I was. Has anyone else had this issue and did Toyota fix it. Check your Data coverage in your Nav. It is no safer having the lockout while moving as to trying to use the voice recognition.
