The Toyota built in GPS is a piece of crap to start of. Can't force

highways only and many other features are lacking. Once it took me

on a journey through single lane dirt roads, to go from Pattaya to

Koh Chang. Well, I stopped using it after 10 minutes of that crap ...

I will NEVER again get their built in GPS package. I used a Garmin

before and after I tried the Toyota GPS, I pulled my Garming from

the "For Sale forum", and am still using it for new destination trips.

100% waste of money ... not even bother to ask for a Map upgrade ...

I find my toyota unit quite usefull, its certainly not a "piece of crap". You dont say what model you have but mine is from a 2010 fortuner. I also have a Garmin nuvi and they operate in an almost identical way. They even have the same map installed, CN Thailand 2014.10.

You are correct, you cannot "force highways only" but under the navigation settings you can enable Avoidances so that it does not use unpaved roads.

You should also check your Route Preference setting.

Your screen shots looks very much like a Garmin unit. It's very possible that Toyota outsourced their mapping hardware to Garmin, Honda did it to one of their models (forgot which one).

Suvarnabhumi launched in 2006.

"that's really saying something" is an unfamiliar phrase to you?

I'd thought it was pretty universal throughout the English-speaking world.

I thought you were criticizing, my apologies for criticizing you back without fully understanding your position.

I get tired of off-topic responses and I thought yours was one of them.

Anyhoo, before buying a new car, always find out the price of the maintenance items. HID's are another one of my other frustrations (a whole other topic).

Its OK, I get irritated by a lot of people on the internet too

And its true, my post didn't really add anything to the conversation heh

Vendor lock-in - sigh, yeah. I'm surprised a mass market marque like Toyota would do this, though. I guess nobody really cares about repeat customers anymore

Yes, I have the early V-Cross 2012. Somehow after a little over 12 months it wiped all my saved points out ... Isuzu installed new (updated) software and said if it happened again that they would change the unit. At the same time I asked for an update to the latest map. Can't remember the exact price but it was in the region of 500Baht ... if I find the bill I'll post.

Haven't had a problem since. I find the unit fine, it works very much like Garmin with which I'm familiar. The unit in the newer D-Max is different.

My only complaint is that on my model you can't externally save favourites. So if the unit 'crashes' bad luck. Just realized that I need to find out what happens on a battery change .....

You have the Toyota "built" navigation system... looks very similar to the factory built Camry which is very expensive.

I wonder if your DVD would work in my Camry? hint hint.
