I have the factory nav system and I was wondering if I can turn it off and just see the display for the XM or FM or whatever else I was doing. If I swap to the XM radio and tune a channel or change settings, I would like it to stay there and not go back. I have found where to turn the screen off, but then it will not display the other screens either. I was going to talk to the dealer, but figured I would post it here before I get with them on Monday. Anyone else know how to turn it off until I need it? Also, does anyone know how much the upgrades will be for the 09 DVD disc? I have heard that there was a charge of about $200. Seems steep for a DVD with new addresses. The way it seems is that the disc has to be in the drive in order for the GPS to work.

Edit: I finally had to get help from the dealer, it was under Info, Display Settings, and then Automatically Transition from Map/Nav, or something to that effect. Now I can just see the radio settings and not have to have it swap to the Map :)

There is a setting you can change so that, when you go to the radio, it'll stay there. However, I think the system will always start with nav when you turn on the car. I'm not near the car right now, but I think it's off the main menu or setup button.

Yes, Toyota is notorious for overcharging for DVD updates for their nav. Could be as much as $250 for the 08 disc. Last I heard from my dealer they should be available right about now.

Has anyone used computer software to backup their current nav disc so that you don't have to leave the original in the DVD drive? It would be similar to backing up a DVD that you buy in the store to keep it from getting scratched. I might experiment later when my wife gets home. I would hate for someone to take it out of the drive or for it to get scratched and not work. I'm sure the dealer would charge a pretty penny to replace it. Hopefully I will find out today what the new replacement cost would be if the need arises.

I'm not sure if that was a statement or question, but I am in the process right now of doing just that. The DVD is larger than a single layer DVD and takes up just about 8 GB of room. I am making an image and will try to burn it back to a dual layer DVD and see what happens.

Well, disc burned successfully, now got to wait on the HL to get home :) It was about a 45 minute burn to get that rascal done !

Backup was successful, works great in the truck, so now I at least don't have to worry about losing the original. I will keep it here at the house safe and sound :)

Has anyone had an older DVD Nav system updated? Do you just pay for the disc and then stick it in the drive and it updates, or does the dealer have to do something special in the setup?

Brian

PS If anyone wants to know what I used to back up my old system, just PM me and I will let you know.

copying a DVD

Brian,

I have tried copying my 2007 Camry GPS disc to a double layer DVD, and it will not copy. I am using Roxio Creator 9 software and have tried both Memorex and Sony DVD+R DL blanks. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Phil

Did you find a place to buy an upgrade for GPS disk for less than Toyota dealer charges?

No I have not. If I get my hands on an 8.1 DVD I will be glad to make the owner a hybrid :) I still don't personally know any 8.1 owners in my area. When I do, I will let you know how it works out.
