  1. I’ve got one (detachable) on mine. Never used it, was installed (official Lexus) by previous owner.
  2. I would say chances are high.
  3. Never had an issue on my Mac. They download as ZIP files which the MAC will automatically unzip for you. Then just copy the update (usually a .KWI file) to a blank FAT32 formatted USB stick.
  4. What version of software do you have running for the MEU (Navigation)? The latest update (1530) reports that it fixes the following issue: Map in map screen changes to 2D North from another orientation after IG cycle. The below shows the latest software version I have installed on my NX
  5. They are under ‘repair’ then ‘technical service bulletin’. Then select your car model or insert your VIN.
  6. You can see the titles of the TSBs without paying. When you click on one to read it you will be asked to subscribe.
  7. I thought the map data was the same between the two systems on a UX - the software upgrades however may be unique to the larger screen.
  8. You also get the software updates from the Tech website. They are listed under Technical Service Bulletins, but you’ll need an active subscription to access them. Costs about 3.50€ for an hours access. Alternatively ask your local Lexus dealer if they will install it for you.
  9. Same version also available on the Lexus-Tech website. I updated my NX a while ago. You’ll need to create an account (free) to access the files. Then select ‘Owner’ then ‘Map and Software Updates’. I’m pleased that Lexus are finally starting to show updates on the dashboard as this is where the official map updates website tells you to look.
  10. I was wondering the same!
  11. I notice that there are now instructions/details on the Lexus-tech website (*) for adding CarPlay to 17CY non-navigation systems (Pioneer systems). This appears to match the details found on the Spanish Lexus website that stated non nav systems would get updates from Dec 2019 and systems with Nav (Panasonic) would get it from April 2020. (For NX, UX and ES manufactured after Sept 2017) Although the instructions look pretty easy to follow, it looks like it is designed for dealers to install as it mentions registering the upgrade on the warranty. No use to me as I have a Panasonic system with Nav. It does sound encouraging though. (*) subscription needed to see the documents. 3€ for an hour.

  13. MP3 playback has been poor on Lexus systems for a few years. My old IS300 had the same behaviour you describe from your GS. My wife’s Toyota Aygo with the X-Touch system (from 2014) has no such issues. Quick and responsive and always plays files in the correct order. Ironic on a car that’s a quarter of the price of a good NX/ES. Aygo for the last year have also had Apple CarPlay 😳 Lexus make great cars but I’ve often found their infotainment systems really poor. I’ve already started looking at other brands although I’m not to change for at least another 18 months.
  14. 2019 v2 was released a few weeks ago. Not aware of anything newer in the last week. This is only a map data update. Software for the navigation and audio systems are installed separately. I believe the latest versions are as shown in the photo.
