Has anyone heard of an override so that the navigation system can be used, by the passenger of course, while the vehicle is in motion? The one for the '06 and earlier systems does not work on the '07.

Anyone figure this out yet?

I did a search and found this post but no new info....

**nevermind, just found it wasn't possible**

Feel free to prove me wrong!

Don't have my 07 Tundra yet but in the 07 Landcruiser you have to push the emergency brake unitl it clicks one time. There is no brake applied but it will allow you to use the nav system and watch a DVD. I would be curious to know if it worked in the 07 Tundra.

it is not possible....all OEM navs are this way. Thank the lega/regulatory departments. Someonemust have gotten sued badly, and the lawyers took over. It is what it is, no matter what make of vehicle you buy these days.

As of now, the only way I figure it can be done, is to cut the speed sensor wire. I assume the one function that would be lost would be the ASL.

If I can get caught up this weekend with the lake cabin projects, home projects, and tuning up my street bike, I will try it, then I will not post anything about it so you guys can't sue me.:rolleyes: :D

Cutting the speed sensor wire doesn't work. I tried that already. The nav system is smart enough to disregard the speed sensor after the nav antenna picks up movement after a couple of minutes of movement. The solution I found was to use the Ver 5 DVD in the NAV system. It includes the firmware that allows you to overide the inputting data while driving lockout that you have. You get to the overide by going into the menu / volume/ and clicking on the top corners. Do a search on clublexus.com for the detailed info. You can also use the Ver 5 lexus nav dvd. I works too. I did. This doesn't solve the watching movies on the nav screen while driving lockout. I'm still working on that.

Good to know, now I think I remember reading that post about a month ago. Thanks, now I don't need to waste my time getting to the speed wire.

Question for you, with the ver 5 dvd, does you get older map data then?
