My navigation 'set destination' and 'route info' are greyed out so I cannot enter addresses in it

I would try the upgrade again and if that fails contact the dealer to see if there is a problem with the disk or a bulletin about the issue for your year and model.

Why will my 2008 prius clock not stay set

If your car has navigation, then the clock from GPS likely differs from your manual setting. If it does not, then the issue is likely with fuses.

I have 2008 RX400h. How can I override the gps?

Not sure what you mean by over ride, but if you want to silence the little lady in the box with her annoying commands once a destination is set you can go back in to destinations and delete destination, or to silence her temporarily you can go into the menu/ info screen and you will see a "SUSPEND GUIDANCE" ICON .
Once you click on that icon "Naggy Maggie", will be silenced until you click again at the same location, but your destination will be saved however you will notice the option will now be reading "Resume Guidance"... wish I had the same buttons for my kids...

If on the other hand you simply want to reroute you can go into destinations and you will have options to EDIT ROUTE or ADD to route, etc
. Post back if you need more clarification..

Enjoy the car, great choice
