Hi,

I noticed that when I use the radio, the radio will fade out during navigational instruction announcement. However, if I listened to the CD or music from the USB... the music does not fade out. Is that normal? The system should fade out all system radio, CD, USB while Nav is trying to announce its instruction but that hasn't been happening (except for the radio).

Can you check yours?

Paul - I'll check it out next time I drive our Venza. My wife is the primary driver so I only get to enjoy it every once in a while.

Haven't listened to FM or CD, but I know when I listen to XM (Sat1, Sat2, Sat3), the volume does not descrease for the nav instructions.

How odd is that? While they have all the fancy lockout feature for the NAV and PHONE, they neglect to lower the music for the nav instructions. Go figure.

No audio fade in any mode on our 2009 V6. Never have a problem hearing the nav instructions over the audio - we just set the nav voice volume at a setting we can hear. Easy to adjust handsfree.

BTW - if you had a Garmin, etc., you would have the same problem with the audio not fading.

Audio dosn't fade at all during navigation (2010 model) I did notice that the instructions come only on the left front speaker so the driver will hear it the most.

I have a 2010 Venza. By me, i used my nav yesterday while listening to USB and it did fade, only the left front speaker volume for the voice to talk and than it went back to normal. You might want to speak or bring your Venza into the dealership to have them look at it:eek:.
