For now it is now considered a libility and not an asset to have this thing in the car. I ended up having to use my Iphone to find a hotel. Had to plug in Columbia, Illinois the night before and then reset for home once I got there. I mentioned this at dealer on I brought my car for the 5000 miles check up and i was told there no update available or no problem with system. The Honda is also an excellent value: It has a similar base price to the Toyota but comes standard with a more powerful base engine. Its not a safety issues as far as I know, but it is an irritation. I love the option of the vehicle reading my texts.
I would prefer the option of having just the one item displayed, viz. Thanks I'm not talking about the Entune Application. What recourse do I have besides never buying another Toyota I have loved my other Highlanders? Are they good enough to justify their premium, as well as the costly map updates? I could not get it to find several towns, and even some points of interests Parks ect. For me so far, there is nothing to dislike about the system. You'll see that your phone is likely connected for Phone and Music but not Internet. Very angery with Toyota and horrible Nav system.
The entune will not go into pairing mode nor allow any Bluetooth related function. But there are some nuisances with the new nav system, too. I contacted my dealer that I purchased the vehicle from and explained my problem. Are you happy with it? I took it into the dealer and they installed an update which fixed those problems. I leased a Ford Edge and the lease is up this year. The Toyota will say your destination is on the right and it will be on the left…. If the bluetooth feature is turned off.
Minimum monthly payments are required for this plan during the promotional period. The only way the Nav system fixes itself is when you start the car the next day everything works as avertised as if you had no problems. Then the next time I turned on the stereo no bluetooth would start at all. Needless to say he called back 20 minutes after that and they ordered a new radio. I initially connected everything without issue prior to upgrading to lollipop. The system will not set up messaging. Like the outside, the interior carries over unchanged and is free of visual sizzle.
I can't wait to get home to try this fix. I plugged in a 12v-5v usb adapter next to it and it works much better. Scott should be reimbursed by Toyota for giving us information that the company should be giving us. When I try to initiate a transfer through the system, it says there's a problem with one or more contacts. I am using Google maps on my phone.
The cabin gets premium enhancements such as synthetic leather-trimmed seats, tri-zone climate controls, and an upgraded infotainment system, while its standard V6 engine gives this trim a significantly higher tow rating than the base model. I will do the same. Also, the builtin usb port does not supply enough current to charge well. The Nav package is much improved. When you buy a Garmin unit you get updates for the life of the unit and the updates come out two to three times per year and take an hour to install on a slow machine. Not add device, remove device, no bluetooth settings, nothing.
Listen to your loyal customers…google blows you out of the water. When I finally arrived at an entrance I was instructed to take a parallel frontage road instead of the entrance. Using a older Garmin along with my Android phone there was no hesitation finding those locations. A young man named Ricardo took my complaint to the tech in charge of the Nav system. I get to intersections and it just shuts itself off leaving me to decide which way to go maps are much more reliable!!!!! I grab my cell phone and tell it where I want to go and it navigates me without questions. Its optional V6 engine won't let you down when you've got the whole team on board or when you want to tow the boat to the lake for the day.
Should I Buy a New or Used Toyota Highlander? I had a 2010 Ford Fusion with their Sync Nav system and it was awesome. Missing sections of maps that leave you guessing. But if you want, you go ahead and drive, enjoy it, have fun, get lost, enjoy the crappy gps system, end up somewhere random, be late, run out of gas, whatever. In fact, the Highlander had its best-ever sales year in 2018, with more than 244,000 of them finding homes. Are the Toyota maps really that incomplete?

It saves a lot of gasoline in comparison with my Camry, especially, if you drive mainly in the city. Same thing on return going around St. Looked at google maps before I left and had an idea of where I was.
My 2011 Kia lets me attach to my phone or ipod touch via bluetooth and I run Pandora, TuneIn etc, from my phone, and through my cars sound system. In early December 2014 it stopped working. Without exaggeration, Toyota has lost me as a future customer. Toyota has the nerve to charge a premium price for a worthless piece of garbage. The 2019 Highlander also earned the highest rating of Good in five crash tests and the second-highest rating of Acceptable in the passenger-side small overlap front test. I showed this to dealer service and explained since it accepted the first street and then hung, there was a bug. Just get garmin, tomtom or god help us magellan to put in a real unit, ok Toyota? The voice recognition at least for me works great.
