There is no law in Missouri to block this, so I would like it unlocked. Toyota says tough. I replied by saying that I guess my passenger would have to whip out my Garmin or paper map when I get into an unsafe area or can't pull over to the side of the road because there is none.
The buyer of the vehicle should have to right to decide to use it or not, it's not Toyota's decision. Anyone have any answers? Thanks in advance! Apparently you simply cannot unlock it. If you hunt around on forums, you'll see it was, and still is, a pretty big discussion topic. For example, from this discussion about the model product links removed :. Yes, that topic has been discussed to death.
Just about everyone hated that "lockout" feature in Toyota's GPS system The "older" generation has a hidden "unlock" key to enable the GPS to work while driving but, of course, when Toyota updated their system they promptly rid of that hidden key.
The user Luu posted a response from Toyota on the issue, here is a rather unsatisfying excerpt:. We are sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction that many features of the navigation system in your Sienna are disabled while the vehicle is in motion. Our intention is to help avoid a situation in which the system may distract a driver and endanger lives.
While we understand that it would be useful for front seat passengers to able to operate the navigation while the vehicle is in motion. However, if the front seat passenger was allowed to operate the system when the vehicle is in motion, there is no integrated safety system to prevent the driver from also being able to do so due to the current design of the passenger occupant detection system whereby a driver could place sufficient weight on the passenger seat to simulate the presence of a passenger.
In fact, this issue is apparently so annoying to consumers that there's even an entire website dedicated to protesting it. That said, it seems folks have discovered a means to bypass the system on certain newer models I also found thisa hack to tricking the system into thinking you are parked. I cannot say if that works on older models. However, if it is GPS based info and internal to the unit, that may not be possible.
It pretty much appears you're SOL unless you go with an after-market system, or the newer model hacks work for the older vehicles. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

Using nav system while in motion software override -- Generation 2 -- 1.By xarmaAugust 13, in Yaris Club. I wanted to ask if there is a way to intall the sat nav without paying so much money.
Also does it really hasn't a USB entrance? I've got the navigation system on my Yaris. That's just silly. I can manage without that thanks. Updates for manufacturer systems are usually expensive compared to updates for stand alone units from the likes of Garmin, TomTom, etc.
The map update file is available via the My Toyota portal. Here are the pre-reqs. As of some point in all new cars with Touch 2 with Go got 3 year Map Care. Fairly certain that those without get 3 year Map Care when they update but it is possible that it may only apply to cars registered within a certain time frame. From late Toyota introduced a software update version 6.

There has to be a way to download it online, hack it, buy it used, something. It's a freaking robbery. JimboPalmer Tsar of all the Rushers. Garmin, TomTom, etc. Sergiospl Senior Member.
Maps - Android Apps on Google Play and it's free! I don't know why automakers don't seem to catch on. I have a OLD Garmin with free lifetime maps updates. It works great, and after 5 years plus, I can buy a new one for less than Toyota charges for a single time map update.
I almost wish mine would break so I could justify getting a new one,- they've improved. JC Senior Member. Hardly an issue at all. I have a Garmin from 10 years ago and it finds Mendel Leisk 'Orrible Oracle. Just editorial: I think it's first born, not first unborn. C'mon, Toyota's not that bad. Here's the thing, the guy wants his Nav system that he paid extra for up to date without paying an arm and a leg.
That is an outrageous price. Sorry that that is the case but, not surprising.

Have you tried eBay? As it's not working properly without an available update to the system it can't find a certain address. I have seen them on ebay but you may or may not get one that works and it may not be the latest. I just checked there on eBay and they are not for the USB equipped system.
I had the dealer update the maps in my Prius v. It was a waste of money. The maps they installed were about 2 years out of date compared to the maps in my Garmin that were updated the same week for free. There is no way around this.
I have a second 7 year old Garmin GPS did not have lifetime maps that I updated with free maps from openstreetmaps.Note: "Press" refers to a physical button on your phone or the multimedia system faceplate.
