Default Navigation for a 2014 ES350 base model

hi all, I purchased a base model without the navigation package. I realized how inconvenience it was to live without a navigation.. so Is there any way to get one? Google maps and portable ones would be the last options I wanna try..
Thanks all!

Check with you dealer. You probably will have to go with a handheld unit mounted in the car. There is a different monitor and other things that come with the navigation as well as a navigation antenna on the roof of the car. Cost wise, it may be prohibitive to retrofit a system even if it is possible.

As a plus, the Display Audio that you must have gotten is hands down the best interface of all the non-Nav
equipped cars I have ever dealt with. You have the full size back up camera, digital AM and FM radio, surround sound for those and the rest of your sources and pairing for up to 5 devices.

If you have an iPhone your '14 will access Siri by pressing the off hook steering wheel button and she will give
you directions. If not, do as Max707 and other threads will tell you, get the Garmin and enjoy the extra couple
of thousand you didn't spend.

Sales guy told me if you have a IPhone it will sync with it and you can use the IPhone guidance and it will instruct you where to turn through the stereo speakers and there is some attachment you can buy that holds your IPhone and attaches to the window.

When Bluetooth audio is selected I am able to stream navigation direction from iPhone 5 to car speakers on my '13 without navigation. But if I change the bluetooth to any other audio media (let say to FM station) voice directions get totally muted. I wonder if anyone was able to make it work similar to when we get a phone call the music gets muted to allow us to speak on a phone?
