How do you update the maps in the navigation system on a 2014 GS300h. I went to the lexus map update site but that said contact your local dealer.

I was under the impression that you could buy online and download to a USB memory stick with a unique code.

So, can this be done online or do I have to contact local dealer??

I know its cheaper to just use Iphone but if you can afford the GS300h then the cost of an update is minimal.

Can't be done online. Either there is a flap above the hazard warning switch which lifts up and you replace the micro SD card or you have a hard drive based system that needs to be dealer updated.

You can buy them online and update yourself saving on dealer labour.

Here is the site: https://toyotamaps.online/map-updates/toyota-lexus-navigation-gen7-update

 

You just need to buy 32GB usb stick put files there and enter the code. It is way cheaper that going to a dealer.

Have been in touch with the sat nav update site  https://toyotamaps.online/map-updates/toyota-lexus-navigation-gen7-update

They say that a new version will be out towards the end of this month (2018 v2). Therefore hanging on until this is released before I purchase.

Will post how I get on in October.
