:unsure: Hi All

Have an earlv version of LS430 (Jan 03) and would like to know if is possible to add Bluetooth technology to intregrate with the Sat/nav screen, as in the new model. Lexus support does not seem to be bothered to answer the question in depth, replying no to all questions. Surely its only a question of upgrading the software??. I do have the Lexus fitted phone but it only works with a motorola V50.

and even that has to be a lexus version.

I wouldn't think it's just a case of upgrading the software. There is the Bluetooth receiver and aerial to consider. These are probably built-in to the new sat nav unit rather than a plug in module so I doubt you could just upgrade.

Thanks all for the info.

To Colin I would ask if is possible to fit new Sat/nav Unit.

The screen is the same so is it not just a case of poss fitting comlete hardware unit? or am I missing something. ( set myself up there )!!!!!!!1

Regards

Anything is possible but even if all the wiring is the same and the new unit just plugs in it will cost you around £2000 for the unit so it really isn't worth it. If there is modified wiring etc then you would be looking at hours of labour costs on top.
