I have already talked to an attorney who is currently looking into the possibility of a class action. So i tried a couple of things. Apps, prices and services vary by phone carrier and are subject to change at any time without notice. Otherwise it is one of the nicest car I have ever owned, and I've owned a few cars over 70 years old. I use to have one in my 2006 Toyota Sienna. Finally I was ready to commit to a car, one he liked as well.
I do give Toyota credit for trying to rectify their error in judgment. I discussed my displeasure with Nick before I left the lot and told him I would rate his work high CarGurus but not the dealership. Toyota has done nothing to fix this and you and I certainly are not the only ones affected now are we Diane Bryson? I think it is a very useful option to drive or park the car in the tight space. The dealer said, this is the latest model, though on the amazon. Also being in Canada, we have no access to many of the entune features such as traffic and many other apps, even those are often listed in the adverts.
First, I was hoping that having a passenger would allow for in-progress changes. It fits fine on the dash with the sandbag holder. Toyota is really asking for a Class-Action suit. They said the update is pretty much straight forward: turn off the engine, swap the cards, and turn on the car again. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ and gave it a rating of Good, the highest possible, in all five test categories.
Those other systems allowed entry while driving but they lack small subtle things that the Toyota has and standalone systems too , such as which side of the street the destination is on and accurate turn graphics relative to the road, not just Left or Right arrows. The full screen will only hold for 15 seconds then it goes back to two or three screen in any mode. How absolutely absurd is that? Its curb weight ranges from a low of 4,134 pounds four-cylinder model to a high of 4,508 pounds V6 Limited with all-wheel drive. Maybe Toyota is afraid somebody might put a heavy box in the passenger seat and override the lockout. I grab my cell phone and tell it where I want to go and it navigates me without questions. You can set things up so that your call can come in through the vehicle's sound system. Voice recognition is so bad that we do not use it.
Services and programming subject to change. Toyota went back in time and grabbed that seat. Worst navigation system ever for a road trip. A gps is a tool we paid good money for. It involves taking the trim pieces off the dash and pulling the radio out. I was in and out of Toyota all the time. Also, the heated seats are not warm enough in cold winter.
I like the fuel economy a hybrid can give and traded in a 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid that had me getting about 32 mpg Spring and Fall and 28 mpg Summer and Winter. For those who tend to stick to pavement-only excursions, the Highlander offers a smoother ride, a classier cabin, and better fuel economy. In fact, when we moved to Europe 6 months ago, my wife insisted to take the car with us and so we did not realizing that the navigation system cannot be used in Europe. Also, when the map is zoomed out, it hardly shows any cities. Say the number corresponding to the destination you would like to find.
Very disappointing on what is otherwise a great vehicle. I wrote this thread to share this with you July 9 of 2017 and since then 15 people have had the same issue. I tried to put in a town about 50 miles away and it would not allow me to spell the name of the town. I have spent time going through the manual to find this verbage and can not locate it. I lost connection with my 2011 maybe 3 times in 3 years. Of course Toyota would lose money if they did this but they would gain the difference in customers. Well we all know salesman say whatever they want in order to sell a car.
Try to put in a few small towns in N. However, the issue is not corrected. This thing is horrible, horrible!!! It never gives me accurate directions. Came back 4 hrs and 45 min later and did not reach my destination. Anyone else had this problem? If Ford can provide a good system in their vehicles, then so could Toyota. Toyota take note: Texas has more cities than just Lubbock and Houston! No matter what the outcome is: it was definitely my last Toyota. Lastly, Although I love the car, I still would think twice if I would buy a Highlander when we move back again simply because of the navigation system — it is not optimal and after all — I paid for the entire package and that includes a reliable and functional navigation system.
With a bold grille opening and more chiseled flanks, it's a sharp-looking take on the modern family wagon. This means the voice command can be less structured and still be understood. It is the worse system ever! It gets upset if you change course at all and keeps trying to go back to the original course. Makes the new Garmins look good and they too have fallen off my good graces list due to their insane routing and poor programming. Three days after taking possession of my brand new 2014 Corolla I went back to the dealership and told them that I was extremely disappointed with the navigation system: it took me to wrong addresses, through a road which ended at a locked gate which was installed over 10 years ago, it tells me to make a turn after passing the intersection where I am supposed to make the turn, takes me in large circles back to the point where I started, tells me to go straight where there is only an option to go right or left…. Like every one else here the nav system is terrible but I have a different issue.
