Wait, are you saying you tap up left, tape low left and repeat again and then you don't get the screen? To clarify, nothing happens until your 4th tape, THEN you get the menu which has an override choice on the left.

So you're tapping once up top left, than once down low left, then once up top left, than once down low left? All 4 tapes right after each other? If so, I'm not sure what's wrong. I suppose it's possible that was changed for '07, but HIGHLY unlikely.

i'm doing that exact sequence.maybe the good folks at toyota decided they didn't want people overriding that anymore and changed the sequence. Any other 07's out there with the same problem?

Hmmm, sorry. I don't know what to tell ya? As soon as more '07 owners get on the board, we can pose the question/thread to them! Meanwhile, you'll just have to pull into a parking lot to override, I guess?

I just read over on the club lexus forum that the data version of the DVD is different for the '07 models. the override won't work. The good news is that we now have the answer. It's just a waiting game until we figure out what the new override trick is.

Change destination while moving hack for '07

I have an 07 and it works. I tried and tried and couldn't get it to work either until I asked a Lexus tech to show me. Let me tell you a little secret that hasn't been mentioned in this thread yet. First, it must be done from the "display quality" screen. This is the screen in which you adjust your brightness and contrast. Everybody has said to tap the upper left and lower left "corners" of the screen. This is not true. You tap the left side of the screen but not in the upper and lower corners. If you try to tap the lower left corner you'll end up tapping your contrast button. No. You want to tap an area on the left side of the screen just above the contrast button. The attached .pdf file shows exactly where to tap the screen. I could not find an "override" button in any of the menus on my 07.
CAUTION: ENTER DIAGNOSTIC MODE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

So is the DVD different or the hardware different or both?

Mborner, thx for the info! +rep! I'm going to title your post, so that other '07 owners see it. BTW, any idea of the updated dvd disc for '07 will ALSO make it more difficult for our '06 vehicles to override the destination while moving?

Also, just to be clear do you tap the left side of the screen just once to get the override button to appear?

Thanks guys, but that still doesn't solve the problem. I can get to the menu that mborner writes about. I could acess that one via the info button already. what I can't do is find that Override button--which mborner can't find either. That's great info above--i used the menus to adjust my bluetooth volume. I just wish i could finished selecting a 'Marked' point in my navigation when the stop light turns green.

Mborner is this right? You're not able to find the override either?

The most current update available at this time is 2005. This is what the 06's are shipped with. Expect to see the next update (2006) at the beginning of November. Unfortunately I don't have any insight into the software revisions. Since both 2006 and 2007 IS's use the GEN 5 system and both use the same part number for the NAV computer my guess is that Lexus is shipping the 07's with the 06 update. So, it sounds like the 06 update will eliminate the override function on an 06 model. I'm still doing reserch to find out more.

My DVD data version is 6.1 so i think it's the newer version. I purchased my car a week ago. I haven't checked the build date. When i get a chance i'll go look.

Okay, it appears that the 07's are in fact shipping with the newest software installed. This software is not yet available over the counter, though. The only way to replace the DVD in an 07 at this time is to have it done under warranty.
