They are going a bit over board there. The Nav Computer that holds your nav disc shows its location below the seat on the passenger side between the fron and back seat. There is a small cover you remove and a button that you press to eject the old DVD. You then insert the new DVD and the sysyem updates itself with the latest upgrade you install.

Currently thats the 10.1 V. dvd that we offer at 180.00 shipped.

Let me know if you need help with anything else.

I have a 2004 GX 470 with the original Navigation DVD. Other than getting updated maps, are there any other upgrades with the latest Navigation DVD (part # = PT219GEN23-10).

Thank you in advance!

Seriously dude you need walk right over and tell your dealer and whoever told you that to go F**** themselves--that is rediculous! It takes 30seconds to do that update and thats while you drink your beer! Grab the disk for 180 bucks and do it
I would avoid them at all cost for anything after that crap.

Get your head down there and look closer. It is "an inny" for lack of a more technical term. Almost like a reset button you have to stick a paper clip in.
