    Yea it would be sweet if you could use car manufacturers nav software.. I just got a brochure for an Acura RL (just came out couple days ago). They have real time traffic / accident updates beamed to it.. It looks hella sweet..

    .

    The software to run the DVD might be custom made by lexus (or a software company that they hired) but the maps on the CD are most likely generic maps.

    Typically Raster maps from the car cd's are made by navteq (which is the most popular mapping company) and can actually be read by any type of software.

    Technically speaking you could grab the raster maps for each region on that DVD and wrote frontend software to interact on top of those map files.. you can tell thier a map file because the file size is HUGE...


    Thats my .5 cents

    Thats wild, never heard of that. Lexus is a real nice product and great to work on, but they allways seem to wait for every other carmaker to to try the new stuff first.
    Like XM radio, for crying out loud...all our cars should come standard with that, (and service for free) not a flipping "add-on" option.

    I checked the files.... the emgsr001.idx contains different languages for hospitals, etc... Maybe you could send me another bigger .idx file? Basically what we need to have in the files is the type of destination, the name of it, and log and lat.

    Yeh, I didn't want a red lexus because we have a 92' SC300 at our school... it looks pink My paint is in much better condition than that, because Lexus switched paints I still wish mine was a diff color (something like the GS Royal Sapphire Blue).

    Screenshots: press the print screen button and then open up your favorite photo editing program and paste whatever is in the clipboard.

    The file contains the names for all the streets (US-84 NORTH) etc...

    Open up some files with notepad and see what they contain.
