Hi all, ive just upgraded my Satnav disc from the ones that was in the car from new, ( IS 250 SE-L 2006 ), to the latest 09-10 disc, which allows me to input while in motion.

With the old discs, i had Satnav coverage of Europe, now ive installed the new disc, i have only got coverage of the UK !!

The Lexus dealership that done my service, and upgraded the Satnav, told me the new disc had a lot more information on it, and so was a single disc, but only covered the UK, where as the old version was four discs, covering different parts of europe.

Surely if its an upgrade, it should upgrade all the discs, and not leave me with less coverage ?

The upgrade discs for 2009/2010 are a set of four and you should have been given them all. I have them all and they cover East, North, Central and West Europe. The UK info is on West Europe. How much did the stealership charge you?

Hello Tango, i had the disc supplied and fitted at Woodford Lexus. The women whom covers the booking in and dealing with the service side of things said there was just the one disc. I was charged... £145-57 plus vat.

I have since checked the coverage, and i get France, Spain, Italy ,Luxembourg and Germany, think it covered Finland, definatley no coverage for any countries further east than Germany.

I didnt check the coverage before, due to being in a rush, and being told i would only have coverage of the UK, by the women dealing with services.

Ive since been told by Lexus Woodford, that when i reach the extent of my SatNav coverage, being Poland, i must stop, remove the disc from behind the unit, and put in the disc for that area of the world !!!

Surely this cant be right, i brought what i thought was an upgrade, it would seem that the technology has taken a step backwards, having to dismantle part of my dashboard, to gain acess to the Satnav disc changer, so i can continue my journey ?

Somehow this doesnt seem right to me, has anyone else having these problems, or found this to be true ?

My previous coverage using the disc`s that was originally supplied, was the whole of Europe.

Not so sure on that mate. I've got the first one (2005) and even that has the number "1" on the front - and only covers western europe. As far as I know, they've always come in sets of four.

However, if they've charged you that much, you should have all 4 DVD's (western, central, eastern and northern)

It's a €159 on lexus-mapupdates.eu so the price seems to be ok, but if there's 4 discs you should have received them all. Have a look at that site and see if the coverage map matches your disc - if not go back and ask for the lot. Not sure who you've dealt with, was it Catherine? She's normally pretty good but if you're getting any trouble speak to James and he'll sort you out.

EDIT: just noticed how old this thread is, assuming you already got this sorted?

    • 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.
