My parents are still driving their 2003 Highlander, so I'm hopeful this one will have an equally as long lifetime. My 2011 was pretty good most of the time. Wonder if it really will be fixed and wonder if they will try to weasel out of fixing…stay tuned. So i tried a couple of things. No indication from the Highlander Nav. That will allow you to have a full screen and stay on so you can go the correct way to your destination. What has happened to Lexus and Toyota? If I knew all that, I would have not even purchased the highlandr.
What a pain in the a ss not being able to access it while in motion. Toyota claim these are the most up to date maps. Time to fix this problem! I think it is a very useful option to drive or park the car in the tight space. There are several ways to enter a destination when driving — a new address using the voice system; a previous destination using the touch screen; a saved destination in the address book using the touch screen; a synced destination from your phone using the touch screen. Which Model Year of the Toyota Highlander Is Best? I have to look for the house number on my own.
Took delivery late Feb 2015. However, the Toyota outshines the Honda with better interior materials, superior crash test scores, and a higher reliability rating. Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: 4. Exoected more for what we paid for this car!!! Also, the builtin usb port does not supply enough current to charge well. Google maps is constantly being updates, unlike the antique version in my 2014 Highlander. Next time it might turn on fine.
With all the negativism on this blog, I felt compelled to say I think it works great at least so far. We bought the 2013 because visibility was reduced so much with the 2014 redesign, as well as car got wider and wouldn't fit in our garage. I have not been pleased. This is my 5th Toyota. This did not seem to help much. And it rubs salt into the wound that Canada is not acknowledged as being part of the north American continent.

I use my Iphone now for navigation at no charge and a lot more accuracy. I tried to put in a town about 50 miles away and it would not allow me to spell the name of the town. There are roads that are main thorofares it should recognize but dies not. As I do not have any buttons on my steering wheel, I thought I can use a voice navigation to control my music and my text messages.
The one that basically worked was to put in a neighboring town the one closest to the address I was looking for. It comes with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, satellite radio, and heated sideview mirrors. We bought a Platinum Extended Warranty from the dealer we bought the car. I switch to my native language and still it does not work properly. Love my Highlander but would not buy the upgrade package again due to operational issues and map upgrade costs.
Toyota owes it customers a better upgrade. I took it into the dealer and they installed an update which fixed those problems. When you buy a Garmin unit you get updates for the life of the unit and the updates come out two to three times per year and take an hour to install on a slow machine. They far outweigh the things I don't like about the car. I love the comfort size and luxury of the Highlander but th system is awful.
The BestBuy Geek Squad people can install it for you. The problem is most apparent when passing through an intersection. My non-updated 2004 Lexus navigation system in another car works 300% better. Frustrated enough to never buy a Toyota again—even though the cars are great. The only downside is the dashboard is extremely basic and boring. I would have to stop, turn the engine off, and restart for the maps to load.
You can use a built-in navigation map or Waze map, Apple map, or Google map. In any event, the motion lockout is incredibly stupid given that the voice recognition is so poor. Some models are available with leather upholstery and power-adjustable, heated front seats. Started to pay attention and find this is more common problem than I thought. But Google Maps had no issue with the address. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the carefully. I've put in a spacer that seems to help.
I plan to use both jointly when traveling. But Google Maps had no issue with the address. If Ford can provide a good system in their vehicles, then so could Toyota. We could see the dealership from the main highway but Navigation kept taking us in the wrong direction in circles, I finally turned right instead of left like the navigation wanted and drove right to it!!!! Give me a break when we consider the size and resources of Toyota worldwide and they a given a pass by many of you. 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. Scrolled all over the Nav system and no where could I find 101 Hannon Crescent Ontario. By doing this I had a very user friendly nav system that had current data and also gave me the speed I was travelling in miles per hour.
