    SatNav

    I don't know. I asked the same question when I started the thread and didn't get any replies. I can only assume that nobody has updated their NX SatNav

    SatNav

    I started a thread in the NX forum regarding the SatNav updates but didn't get any replies. have a look at this link to see what's available. https://www.satnavishop.co.uk/2018-lexus-premium-sat-nav-sd-card-navigation-map-update-652-p.asp?utm_source=LexusOwnersClubUK&utm_medium=ForumLinks

    The rear image looks nice and clear but, if you've got anything other than 3 little 'uns in the back, the coverage is going to be somewhat restricted I would have thought. There is no movement of my rear camera when I open and close the tailgate.

    Here is an image from a file taken from my rear camera. I have a panorama X2 fitted front and rear. Brilliant!

    NX SatNav Map updates

    I asked this question in another thread but I'm not sure that enough members saw it and so I thought I'd try again. I'm keen to update the maps in my car and am wondering if anyone else has used this particular brand, see link below. I gave the supplier all of my SatNav data and this is what they came up with. The product mentions 'Premium Navigation' but, I don't know if mine is the Premium version, although I think that I have read somewhere that fellow member ColinBarber thinks that all NX's have Premium Navigation. can this be confirmed by anyone? The Lexus SatNav handbook says "Do not eject the SD card as it will deactivate the system". I'm not sure if map updates are normally done by leaving the SD card in place and writing over the existing content or, if its done by replacing the card with a new one. Anyone know the answer to this. https://www.satnavishop.co.uk/2018-lexus-premium-sat-nav-sd-card-navigation-map-update-652-p.asp The cost of this update (from the link) is certainly more realistic than Lexus prices.

    Another satNav question

    This is the version recommended to me after following Andrew's link above. I provided them with all my data information and they came up with this but, I don't think that my SatNav is the Premium version. Anyone able to tell me how I can verify this please. The Lexus SatNav handbook do not eject the SD card as it will deactivate the system. I'm not sure if map updates are normally done by leaving the SD card in place and writing over the existing content or, if its done by replacing the card with a new one. Anyone know the answer to this. https://www.satnavishop.co.uk/2018-lexus-premium-sat-nav-sd-card-navigation-map-update-652-p.asp The cost of this update (from the link) is certainly more realistic than Lexus prices. Have any other NX owners used it at all?
  7. All sounds pretty shocking and incompetent. Will be interested to hear final outcome. Somewhat confused as to how you received a text if you didn't have your phone with you though

    Thank you for that Andrew. Do you happen to know if anyone does updates purely for the UK. The chances of me driving abroad again are now pretty low.

    Dodo Juice - Whoops

    On the subject of seats, what is the best way (if there is one of course) to disguise a scratch on a leather seat. I have one that was probably caused by someone getting in the car and they scraped a buckle or suchlike across the seat. It's only very small but when you know it's there............. Many thanks in advance of any suggestions.

    Welcome Richard. I'm sure that you will get a great deal of pleasure from your new car. I am on my 4th Lexus and have been really pleased with all of them. Enjoy.

    SatNav

    I have an old Garmin Nuvi 660 and it has been a very good buy, I might even consider buying another. Which model did you buy Alan?

    Another satNav question

    Hello ColinBarber, apologies, I did mean to say 'Map updates' in my original post. I punched in a postcode for a point some 50 miles away today and it wasn't available and so I thought that a map update was needed. I know that Lexus charge silly money for these but have seen that other members have used updates from other than via Lexus. Apologies again for the misleading post.
  13. Has anyone updated their SatNav on the NX yet? Are there any reliable versions available other than paying the vastly overpriced updates from Lexus? I see that one or two members have done theirs on other models with some success.

    Overall performance/speed

    Rod, an IS250 SE-L will be a splendid choice. I've had one and it was a cracker. I'm sure you will find exactly what you are looking for if you take your time. When you find one and it entails a bit of a journey, it will be well worth it. Good luck with your search.
