If its a micro SD card based navi system, then yes. Just buy a card from the dealer and swap the old one out.

Thank you. Now I just have to figure out if my system has a micro SD reader.

After using this system for over 5 years, I definitely need an update so it doesn't look like I driving through fields on highways 404 or 26.

I think in hindsight, I prefer Garmin systems and will not buy another Lexus with navigation.

If it has an SD card, there will be a foldable door somewhere in the center dash that will simply flip down and you should see the card right there in the middle.

When talking bang for buck, Garmin (or the like) are a better way to go.
Initial cost is low, and updates are usually free for a lifetime.

However, with the car Navi system, it's usually packaged with other items, so to get those other items you have to take the Navi.
Any navi update is usually around $200 plus tax...and the SD card you can install yourself.
To update the factory Navi every 4-5 years wouldn't be too cost prohibitive, but definitely I wouldn't be doing it every year.
