When Will A New Version Of Sat Nav Dvd For Rx400 Become Available?


Recommended Posts

Currently running a 2005 version in the RX400, and wanted an update. The dealer said the latest version was 2007, which does seem a bit old, as the Lexus manual suggest annual updates.

Can anyone cast some more light on when a 2009-10 version will become available?

Also I have located the DVD player in the boot, but does not seem to be able to get the current DVD to eject.

Any advise would be highly appreciated.

If it's the same system as in my Camry, you need to have the key in the ignition so that the system is powered then slide the eject button and the disc will come out.

I took delivery of a 2009-2010 disc a couple of weeks ago - it was released at the beginning of October.

Take the disc out of your current system and look at the part numbers. Stick these part numbers into the following site and it will tell you if a new disc is available. It will report a 'part number' which ends in the year: eg: PZ485-X03EU-09 is the part number for my new 2009-2010 discs that work in my 55 Reg IS250 (and a 57 Reg RX400h and 06 Reg SC430).

At the current exchange rate, the discs are about £149 including postage.

Cheers

PS: I'm selling my old 2008-2009 discs on the forums - look in the buy/sell section.

Sorry, did not read full post. Does it unlock the screen so that destinations can be added whilst on the move.

The new set allows programming of the Satnav whilst on the move.It's a four DVD disc set that covers Europe, North, East, Central and the West one for UK/Spain/France/Italy etc. .

Yes new update disc out now, £128+vat though.

But the disk I can see for mine is PZ485-X03EU-10 which looks like it's the 2010 version from the '10' at the end. Does your part number end in '10' or '11'? :-s

Part number of my sat nav upgrade supplied by Lexus Leicester was LPZ445-X03EU-11. I paid £128.46+vat. Hope this helps.

Thanks. As the first part of the number is different perhaps we have different versions of the navigation system? And perhaps the different versions release their updates at different times... I tried the contact form on the update site to check. If I don't hear anything back soon I'll try my dealer too and ask if the part number you have is right for mine :)

LPZ445-X03EU-11 is now on the map update site so I've now got mine. I was hoping that it would also unlock the audio screen so I or my passenger can tap on a folder of MP3's instead of fumbling with the up/down folder buttons. Sadly this hasn't been unlocked though.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
