Satnav Disc - How Important Are The Numbers?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help please...

Although I tend to use my phone as a satnav, I would update my system if the discs were cheap ( used/ebay? ).

I have an RX300 and I know it's generation one. the numbers on my DVD are the 08664 are; 24121 and 70V311A

Q. Do I simply find a newer 'generation 1' DVD, or is it more involved than that? I see various used Gen.1 DVD's on eBay ...

What I did was to get the disc out of my sat nav and go onto Lexus-mapupdates.eu and put in the numbers from your present disc, and the site will tell you what is available, how recent it is, and what it will cost. The reason that I suggested that you had your disc with you is that there are several numbers on my disc and I entered the wrong one until I clicked on the help feature and it showed me the position on the disc of the required number.

Once you have completed the check on Lexus-mapupdates.eu you should have confirmation of your sat nav generation and the part number of the latest available disc.

Having just updated my discs I have a set of 4 2007/2008 discs complete with the manual which would be available very cheap if they were of any interest to anyone, but as mine is a Gen 5 sat nav I suspect that they would not fit yours.

Thank you.

On that website (Lexus-mapupdates.eu) I try my Generation 1 and either 24121 and 70V311A but neither give anything ... no results.

Is it me?!

( I'll check again )

I have 86271 70V311A ...

Would any of these fit? 86271-60W370B, 86271-60V660J, 86271-60W30, 86271-60A210 ?

When I went on Lexus-mapupdates.eu I entered the number from my disc and it did not recognise it, so I clicked the help button and it brought up a picture of the numbers on the disc, needless to say I was using the wrong number, I entered the correct number and disc was recognised and the recommendation for the uypdated replacement came up.

Hope that this helps.

86271 - 24121 works on the website and returns the following as the latest disc:

You need to find somebody in Europe who has purchased the disc set, kept the central Europe disc for themselves and therefore are willing to sell just the UK disc. That is why you find cheap UK discs on eBay.

      Hi all,
      Has anyone bought a SAT NAV update from this place? Seems to get good reviews etc and loads cheaper than getting it form ebay. Also like some other copies you dont need to disconnect the battery as part of install.

      I thought it may be useful for all Forum members with or contemplating Premium Nav to outline my experiences with it over the past month - as I seem to have encountered most of the problems but also some of the solutions. 
      Fundamentally, Premium Nav adds an Internet capacity to your satnav. This enables it to pick up traffic conditions (and offer alternative routes), note parking options in cities, allow online searches (which will provide phone numbers as well as navigations options) and send journeys from your phone/tablet/computer to your car in advance.
      (It adds a few more things too, like an advanced reverse camera and DVD player, but they're not relevant here. For the record, it also adds the capacity to save a journey to a USB and transfer this to the car that way.)
      The first thing is you need to register with MyLexus. Previously there was a Lexus Portal, but this has been replaced. However, the fact is there has been significant confusion over this. 
      NOTE 1:
      Your sign-in name (an email address with MyLexus) is *not* your User ID. Your User ID by default will be the first part of your email address, but you are wise to change this as it may clash with others (or just cause confusion with past portal registrations). You change it my going to "My Details" and "Edit" and it is at the bottom. 
      Once you have registered you need to register your Multimedia device. This is a 16-digit number (to be typed in without hyphens, even though they appear on the screen). I found it easier to do this online than in the car, though both are options. 
      You also need to verify the vehicle. For this you need a six-figure number from your logbook (like ABC12D) - this is a chore when you lease because you need to get a scan from Lexus Financial Services or the lease company; and even more of a chore when they lose the logbook...
      NOTE 2:
      If you cannot get this number, ask your dealer for the one they use for demonstrators. That seems to work. 
      Now the key is to connect to the Internet. This can be tough, at least with an iPhone. 
      NOTE 3:
      You need to have tethering on on the phone (apple calls this "Personal Hotspot"; other companies use slightly different names).
      In theory you can connect for tethering via Bluetooth or WiFi. 
      For some reason I cannot do the former with my NX (worked fine on my IS). 
      The latter is a bizarre hit and miss and seems to require not only that the Personal Hotspot be on, but that the specific page be open. Weird. 
      NOTE 4:
      This is where I get a little lost...
      Via Setup > Navigation there is a Connected Services menu which allows "Delete Username and Password" or "Change Username and Password". If you try the latter, you need your *User ID* (not the email address) and password. It may be worth keeping these short!
      You then click "Save" and that should simply save it - but if you are unlucky, it will go to connecting and a lovely error message. This means your tethering has broken down, your password is wrong, you've forgotten your User ID, MyLexus does not feel like working, or you've the wrong colour socks on today...
      If you get through this, try your luck with an Online Search on "Navigation > Destination". Here, you will go to "Connecting" but hopefully not for long. If you do, the above paragraph applies. If you don't, you're in business. 
      NOTE 5:
      My success rate in currently about one in four...

      Lexus still has not been able to locate my logbook so I was given another number today with which to verify my vehicle. 
      From the MyLexus point of view, this appears to have worked. The car is deemed verified; it says it is connected to the multimedia; and I can send journeys to the car. 
      Unfortunately once I get to the car it's another matter. Any attempt by any means of typing in my Lexus ID and password is met by a could not connect message, "ID=195". 
      This has come up before on these forums but I reckon I am doing everything advised. Any further thoughts?

      Just to quick queries long-term owners may be able to answer. 
      1. When I set a destination on the satnav, on both my previous IS and my wife's CT, it was not necessary to click "Start" - after a short delay to allow you to add further destinations to the route, the navigation started anyway. However, it appears the NX requires this (and it cannot be done by voice control).  
      Is this correct? Or is there a setting which allows this to be changed?
      2. The boot is automatic (so far so good), but it has to close all the way before you can lock the car. As it takes a while, I can see this getting slightly irritating.
      Can this be set so the car is locked in advance of the boot closing?
