Thanks John 'I should have searched but there you go . My 2006 IS250 MM Auto had a DVD in the radio unit instead of a CD player just for music . You could play DVDs at a stop as standard . Also they dumbed down the phone touch screen whist driving as a safety/ nanny precaution . This of course could be dis enabled . Did the Sc with the updated generation nav system have a dvd in the radio unit ?

Sorry Nick I cannot help you with that one.

I would guess not,but Neil and Bob are the ones who might be able to answer definitively.

I'm not the best person to ask as my car is so unlike a proper SC these days, it's a test of memory.

My 2006 didn't play DVDs from the standard head unit or the nav unit but I think the very late 2009-10 head units could play DVD and had a USB connection.....apparently, I've never seen one. There were a few tweaks but the best I can offer to confirm what they were is this pdf. I couldn't find a list or a video but it does say that the head unit plays CD/DVD and it's still trying to seduce you with the idea that it was designed in collaboration with the Mark Levinson engineers blah blah.... Fair play it does sound very good stock but they could only do the best possible with the cheap speakers provided.

Thanks Neil , Its  strange they facelifted to the same sat nav as the new IS (2005) and not incorporate the DVD as in the IS . , but then Toyota /Lexus  policy was always a mystery to me . They even didnt have the full postcode in 2006 !!!!!!!
