Also, the builtin usb port does not supply enough current to charge well. Have moved it up to Toyota and case manager has been assigned. It is really next to useless and aggravating as heck to have to try repeating things over and over. While the maps are generally up-to-date to the year of the vehicle model, they can become incomplete over time as roads and points of interest are built, closed or changed. As for keeping the iphone paired — or at least connected — forget about it. Scout ® and Telenav ® are registered trademarks of Telenav, Inc. As others have pointed out, it is pathetic.
If I knew all that, I would have not even purchased the highlandr. Navigation kept turning off, resetting radio settings, etc. Toyota definitely missed the mark with the nav system in the Highlander. It saves a lot of gasoline in comparison with my Camry, especially, if you drive mainly in the city. Got a 2015 Avalon limited with a cheap Garmin in the dash.
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!!!!

Are they good enough to justify their premium, as well as the costly map updates? So, my Highlander has a Garmin stuck to the windshield. I purchased a 2015 limited with every possible option, and I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. For more information on mpg, please see. I will save my problems with entire for another rant.
And what do you think? Of course they have not been, although now at least I can program in my home address. For more information on mpg, please see. Three days after taking possession of my brand new 2014 Corolla I went back to the dealership and told them that I was extremely disappointed with the navigation system: it took me to wrong addresses, through a road which ended at a locked gate which was installed over 10 years ago, it tells me to make a turn after passing the intersection where I am supposed to make the turn, takes me in large circles back to the point where I started, tells me to go straight where there is only an option to go right or left…. A 10 year old Garmin would be better than the Highlander navigation system. Hope this helps a few of you considering buying a Highlander but were leary due to the history of the evolution of Entune. Hard to believe that in 2015 Toyota expects someone to read a 296 page user manual in order to use a navigation system! I chose No, for now. Very disappointing on what is otherwise a great vehicle.
Well guess what, they sold it to me, in their Highlander and they should replace it with a working system!!! Sure, in some cases your best option will be to backtrack. I took it into the dealer and they installed an update which fixed those problems. Odd, if I entered the streets in reverse order, nav found the destination. I live my Rav4 2016, but the gps sucks! Without exaggeration, Toyota has lost me as a future customer. The short version is that we went in with high hopes, but were somewhat underwhelmed. I have to look for the house number on my own. The Garmin picked up the problem and rerouted me around the problem.
And it rubs salt into the wound that Canada is not acknowledged as being part of the north American continent. The system is a disgrace in a vehicle this new and expensive. Aside from that I detest the obligatory dual or triple screen. But Toyota is fooling itself. I understand that this is a safety thing, but… Really? I did not make any calls but played with gps, phone system but not on the move. Use a variety of categories to locate what you're looking for. Follow the instructions for your model.
A compatible Bluetooth ®-enabled phone must first be paired. Also, the information bar that shows the current street name, etc. Excludes taxes, license, title and available or regionally required equipment. Come on Toyota we expect you to be the best. It has difficulty pickup up my voice and jumps to a totally wrong response. Ditto on a lot of the comments given by others. They need to have a recall and fix these problems.
The Nav package is much improved. I do use it to save the battery on my phone, but I always run Waze. My little Nuvi puts this unit to shame. The lockout feature is completely annoying! There is no way around this. Wish I could get the Ford Sync system for my Toyota. In fact, when we moved to Europe 6 months ago, my wife insisted to take the car with us and so we did not realizing that the navigation system cannot be used in Europe. Just started this about two weeks when tried to change stations on the radio.
