I have a 2013 GS Luxury. My wife's work number has an extension associated with it and I need the stored phone number to have a few second pause between the dialing of the phone number's 10 digits and then dialing the 2-digit extension.
Although the number that is transferred from the phone contains a pause (and it works when dialed directly from the phone), when I dial from the number stored in the NAV system the pause does not work. Is there a special character that the system recognizes as a pause or other way to program in a "pause"?
Thanks in advance!

Have you tried a comma [,], which is old style? Or, have you tried using 'P', which is the more modern pause character? Some devices want the star key[*] to be used first, but that is usually a means to get to an internal pause feature, or allows you to add 'P' to create the pause.
I wish I had answer as I tried this many times myself unsuccessfully. It seems to be an example of Lexus going backwards as my 07 ES350 would accept pauses and even did "speed tones" so I could enter my voicemail password, delete messages, etc.
My only solution I came up with was to use Siri to initiate the call from my phone. Then the phone can send the strings with pauses.
