hello Jazz,

you would need a few things. For the map update, you need to buy the NAV update tool from one of lexus parts distributer, and you would need a map DVD (original), and a MAP key that only Lexus dealers here in the US have.

For the DRL, you would need the vectronix scan tool from the US to be able to customize the settings and turn off the DRL. But lexus does not support the scantool anymore and they use the techstream system which costs around $8000.

The navtool is worth around $1600, and the map key is around $400.

I was going to order everything but, didn't seem worth it to me.

let me know if you need more info.

You need the map dvd to load it on the navigation update tool using a computer, then you upload the map key to the navigation update tool, once you are done, you connect the navigation update tool to your car and then you can update the map on your navigation system. The Map key is only valid for one car.

The navigation update tool is the only way you can update the maps on the US-spec models.

Hope that helps

Thanks AlMuhairi for the excellent info sharing . Sorry to jump in and ask if I have a Gulf spec LX570 and would like to update the Nav to latest 2010 version, would it still require the same procedure you mentioned , tools and price? And where can i purchase the update ? my prefrence is to really avoid the dealer serivce bill $$$
Thanks

There is no DVD to remove on the LX570...it is a hard-drive based NAVI.

tigmd99, the US spec LX570 is equipped with the HDD navigation system, but the LX570 in other regions are DVD based navigation systems.

For example, the Gulf-spec that Plucky and ige own uses a DVD navigation system
