    Programming Lexus navigation while driving

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have a 2005 Lexus RX 330 with nav. Does anybody here know how to defeat the "safety" feature that keeps you from programming the unit while driving? I have some Garmin GPS units that let you over ride that feature. Can it be done on the Lexus?

    there is probably a Ebrake sensor that can just be overided. You need to find the wiring harness breakdown/info. there is probably one wire that completes a circuit when the E brake is enabled. just need to find that wire and ground it. (my guess, lexus might have put protection against this) but anything is doable!

    Not legally.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    K, quickly

    Hit menu, then in the top right, hit DVD

    On the next screen, whcih only has the DVD info, do the followinng

    Tap the screen in this order

    Top left
    Bottom Left
    Top Left
    Bottom Left
    Bottom Right

    There are no button, just hit the screen
    Then, press and hold the "override" button till it changes state, and you are good to go.

    You have to do this each time.

    The order of the screen taps might be

    Bottom Left
    Top Left
    Bottom Left
    Bottom Right
    Bottom left

    But I think the first it correct. I use it in the GF car all the time.

    You must do this everytime you start the car.

    Thanks, Michael, but it didn't work for me. Are you sure you remembered the right sequence?
