I have 2003 GS430....I followed the commands to get me into the system menu screen with override being one options to select. But when I go to push it nothing happens....I push the other buttons and they do something. I dont know whats up with mine.

I hate not being able to mess with my nav system while im moving

Am I the only one? I always thought it was like that...
Are you choosing pre-programmed places like a restaurant or are you entering an address?

I'm entering brand new addresses. Hmmm... it makes me wonder why mine's doing that then. Oh well, I guess it can be a cool option I list when I sell the car!!

Never mind. You have to hold the override button down for a couple secs

Press the menu button, then choose system option.

then finally touch the bottom right of the screen. It will bring up a
system menu.
Choose the override button, then hit back.

2004 Rx-330,
Touch the DVD button from the Menu screen
then follow the directions from above.
The system menu pops up with the Override button
Played around with my 02 Australian Nav system and got it to work as follows, hit the following;

Menu, DVD, top left, bottom left, top left, bottom left, bottom right, overide, back.

Had to touch DVD button to get the sequence to work properly

Cheers Geoff

for the guys with 98-00 that DO NOT have the ability to enter while driving, is it possible that this was a C-Best setting back then that maybe your previous owner overlooked?

taj, when you get to your nav screen, press the menu button. Then, look for the system option or preferences button (i forget which exactly it says). When you are in that screen, touch up left, down left, up left, down left, down right. Make sure you're doing this away from any buttons actually on the screen, i.e. extreme corners. Once that comes up you should see a few blue(? that's how it is on LS430) boxes with different options in them. There should be one that says Override or Nav Override or something to that effect. Press and hold that for a couple seconds, you should hear a beep (like setting a radio station) and then you are good to go.

One thing to note, this setting WILL NOT be saved once you turn your car off (i.e. you need to re-do it every time you get in your car. PITA but worth it for long trips with passengers i suppose)

03 gs300 ml nav, like 'lexesive' posted, I had to press the DVD button after pressing the menu button, and the override worked. So, steps as follows 1. Press Menu hardkey 2. Select DVD 3. Press Up left corner of screen 4. Press Bottom left corner of screen 5. Press Up left corner 6. Press Bottom left corner 7. Press bottom right of screen. 8. Then press/hold the override function for about 3 seconds. Thanks for the hack info, makes using nav easier without having to pull over.

haha sure will do. are you touching the absolute-edge of the screen? when i do that it doesn't work as well, so press your finger maybe a 1/4cm away from the corner and it should work. again it's menu, system option, upleft-downleft-upleft-downleft-downright. it is kind of handy at times, if anyone knows how to leave it on after the ignition is off let me know.
