    The GPS system is practically non-functional by Lexus design. Lexus knows about the issue but does not inform the buyer until it is too late. This is beneath a respectable vendor, but Lexus is pig-headed about it. I hope this will eventually drive Lexus out of business. A GPS system which does not function fully during travel is absymal, and the Lexus system is such a system. As it is designed, it is dangerous to operate because the driver is continually trying to work around the system to find something that works. This keeps his attention unnecessarily distracted.
    It should be illegal to put a non-functional GPS system in a car as it promotes dangerous operation.

I have a related problem with a 2007 RX350. I was told by the dealer no less that there is a way fo disableing the power on prompt that asks you to agree not to use the GPS while driving. Its really annoying to have to press this each time you sart the car. I am worried that in the long run that this will lead to a failure of the touch screen. Any body know what the secret handshake is? I can be reached on hotmail if that helps. Fred0723

My touch screen has stopped working and I can't agree to that start up message. Did you have any luck with finding out how to disable this?

    Set clock

    So just to sumarize--when you press the INFO Button and select ADJUST CLOCK, for this time of year --Winter--set Daylight Savings Time to OFF--that will immediatly move your clock back 1 hour. All that selection does is just toggle 1-hour ahead and back--but it doesn't automatically select when DST is in use. Then select AUTO ADJUST to ON and leave it there; this will make sure your clock is always locked to GPS and is always accurate.

    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
