OEM Navigation w/Voice Microphone, Remote Control and Command List Guide
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.

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
Jp82729 – Voice/Navi Install
Switch button in blank coin holder
Microphone on top of the steering column
Silveraltezza – Voice/Navi Install
Switch button location above the OEM navigation controls
Microphone hiding by the rear view mirror (wires ran through the A-Pillar and Roof Liner.
MarkIS300 – Voice/Navi Install (thanks Mark for letting me use your pictures)
Switch button mounted on the side near the automatic shifter
Microphone located near the rear view mirror (install on the side so user could adjust rear view mirrors)
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.
Will this kit work in my 04' IS with stock Navigation? Called Toyota dealership here in CA and the service guy wasnt to sure if it would work...but did have the voice/kit available..
Are you planning on getting the remote control as well?
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...
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.
Sorry for all the ??? tomv, but where and how much did you get yours? Sounds like a pretty easy install. Thanks
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?
