Just as a little more info it boots with a screen that says installing new software on the left and a warning about removing media or turning off. On the right it says meu usb detect and imu usb detect. Im afraid something has gone awry and I felt like I know what I am doing. I formatted the 16gb brand new sandisk thumb drive fat32 on a windows pc and extracted the files over to it.

After driving her car and coming back to my IS350 (a class above in every other way) it just feels like going 10 years back in time.
CARPLAY is big thing for MAPS, but messages and music apps not so much for me as this could be done via bluetooth from your phone, but most maybe find this as a wow service. Anyway I still enjoy carplay just for Google Maps.

I also thought this will have more apps available, but you have to have jailbroken phone.

1. Did you download the correct file for your system. Nav vs non-nav?
2. Did you format the thumbdrive via FAT32?
3. Did you extract the files to the USB drive or to a folder on your desktop then copy said files onto thumbdrive?
4. Do you have another thumb drive you can use?
5. Did you confirm your model ID is what is listed that is applicable to what the PDF instructions state?

*If a blue screen appears, remove the USB flash drive, verify ALL downloaded files are present on the empty USB flash drive, cycle the vehicle OFF/ON, and begin the procedure again.

* If a red screen appears remove the USB flash drive, verify ALL downloaded files are present on the empty USB flash drive, and cycle the vehicle OFF/ON. Then, verify that a green screen appears after 1 minute, cycle the vehicle OFF/ON again, and once the map screen appears, begin the procedure again.

Yvan, got the email from Lexus Canada this morning... they announce a one time fee 70$ cdn (about 50$ USD)... not going to risk to brick the unit and will have Lexus do it for that price but will try to negotiate it. Already in contact with them and they are doing their first one today on a demo car ... They will contact me when ready to do it on mine.

This is the screen I get now, I didnt take a pic of the red screen. Immediately after I toggled headlights the red screen came up saying there was an error. I gave it some time and nothing changed so turned off car and removed usb. Then tried a new USB and re-downloaded files but this is all I get now.

Did you read my post above?

Specifically questions 1,2,3, and 5. Would help if you gave us more information...

Immediately to me if you are getting a red screen without the usb stick inserted something isn't right. Is the system booting at all into the GUI or is it just a red screen now? If it's just a red screen then that tell me possibly new head unit? Not sure though, in my earlier post I had the entire vehicle shut off WHILE it was doing the update after about an hour mark... turned the vehicle back on, and it picked up where it left off and about another 20 minutes later it finished. My first thoughts would be what WAS your version number before trying the update? And or you were missing files from the extract/copy to the thumb drive...

Per the directions:
* If a red screen appears remove the USB flash drive, verify ALL downloaded files are present on the empty USB flash drive, and cycle the vehicle OFF/ON. Then, verify that a green screen appears after 1 minute, cycle the vehicle OFF/ON again, and once the map screen appears, begin the procedure again.
Did you do that step and verify you get a green screen at all?

Also where in VA are you located? I'm in Gainesville.... are you close to me?
