OEM Navigation w/Voice Microphone, Remote Control and Command List Guide
 
1 Attachment(s)
I consolidated most of the threads regarding Voice Navi Kit, Remote Control and Voice Command List into a more manageable thread.

After getting several PM’s, regarding this mod and constantly referring to several threads here on .Net. I decided to gather all pertinent information from various threads from is300.net and clublexus.com / put up this simplified guide.

What is this all about?
Provide Navi owner's with Voice functionality in their stock IS300 Navigation. Granting owner's access to certain features otherwise restricted while the vehicle is in motion.

The voice navi also control your Stock Radio functions (list of commands available in the download)

I’ve broken down this section into 3 parts:

Parts – Voice Navi Mic Kit/ Remote Control
Installation - Extending wirings/ stereo shop estimates/ Mic and Switch Locations
Voice Command – Installed your new toy now need Voice commands to play with.

Installation:

Toyota Avalon Navigation Remote Control: Nothing to cut or Install – Simply install batteries in the remote.

Works with Existing IR Sensor on OEM Navigation Screen (see picture below)

Toyota Voice/ Navi Microphone Kit: Plug into existing pin out in the navigation module located in the trunk. Run Wires through the left pass-thru and into the floorpanels. Through the Driver side kickpanel – From here you have various options where you want to mount the switch button and microphone. See Examples below

Voice/Navi Kit can be install by DYI’er or have any competent stereo shop install it.
**The Wires on the kit have to be extended**

**I noticed on the Voice/Navi Kit the wires are too short (you’ll need to extend the wires another 8-12 ft.). Extend cables for both Microphone and Switch Button.

Stereo Shop Install prices I’ve gathered from other .net members varies from $45 to $100.

Voice Command List:

Now that you have the Voice/Navi Microphone kit installed. You need a list of Voice commands that’ll work with your new toy.

A list of voice commands is also listed on “Quick Reference Guide” for OEM Navigation owners.

In regards to a couple of PM's I received.

Another extra function of the Voice Navi kit is the ability to control your Stock Radio function. Voice commands identical to the LS430 Radio Voice Commands - list is available in the PDF download above

Does the remote control for Nav work while the car is moving? Thats one of the things I hate the most about Toyota's Navs.

I have this in my '03 IS and it works well. The '04 should have the same system as the '03.

Are you planning on getting the remote control as well?

Ya I was planning on getting it. Do you have it? If so does it work well? How hard was the install on the voice kit? Did you DIY or have a shop?

A few months late :) but did you end up getting the voice kit and remote?

Im still trying to inquire about my previous questions, so I haven't picked one up yet? Let you know when I get answers, or just end up getting one...

The voice kit is easy to install. I did it myself as do most people that have gotten it.

In the picture of the kit there are 2 white connectors. These plug into the NAV unit in the trunk.
Then simply route the wires to where you want the mic and button. You will most likely need to cut and extend the mic wires but you can use anything for this. I used some extra Cat 5 wire that I had.

It works pretty well.

The remote control doesn't need any extra configuration. Just point it to the screen and control it.

If you do get the remote control, please let me know.

thanks,
tom

Sorry for all the ??? tomv, but where and how much did you get yours? Sounds like a pretty easy install. Thanks

No problem.
I got mine a few years ago so I'm not exactly sure, but I think I ordered it from Carson Toyota in California. The voice kit was $50.

I don't have the remote, but I think it's around $130.

There is more information about it at http://my.is/

If I update my navigation software will that also update the voice recognition that it will have the most up to date list of voice commands that it would recognize?
