Here's a blurb from Autoweek's review of XSE Camry today.

I think on mine the charging voltage(?) was below 12 volts, that's why they replaced it. Since it costs me nothing, I can't imagine the dealer wanting to do it unless there was in fact something...

I think it's pretty darn neat visor add-on. And close enough so that you can see the (blocky) details on the nav screen very easily. Looks like a factory install. Cool project!

In my 2011 I've only noticed the bogging(hesitation) when trying to accelerate hard when the engine hasn't warmed up fully. My Avalon did exactly the same thing. After it's warmed up all is well.

Do what I did, get a Garmin and some velcro. :)

Wish they had devoted all the time making 3,254 speaking commands that I never use into better colors on the display and good guidance.
