    I do not know if the Nav could affect the radio - might depend upon what you mean by "affect my radio." I think the two systems are independent.

    John,
    I did the swap of the 50090 Nav unit on my 2001 ML. It works. The Parts Manager at my Lexus dealer did same on his 2001 UL. It works. The only issue I had is the clock does not auto-update anymore (the Parts Manager does not have this symptom - perhaps the newer Nav unit must be sync'ed by techstream software.) Be careful buying a unit with disc inside the unit - the disc may be very out-dated so you're paying for an old map with older road and POI info. Also, try to buy a Nav unit with latest date possible on the date sticker (back of Nav unit). Good luck!

    Hello Tom
    I just read your thread about changing the gen2/3 nav unit to a gen 4 and you posted the part numbers of 86841-50090 and 86841-0E010. I found the 50090 with the disc for about $400. I am asking because I believe it will be a plug and play although the jacks on the rear are in slightly different places.
    Do you know if this should work?
    Do you know if having the unit go bad would also affect my radio? I have a 2001 LS430 with ML and Nav.
    Thank you for any help
    John
