While automakers have embraced the Internet and mobile applications as a way to improve the experience for owners, they have not adapted to the role of commercial software vendors, security experts agree.Ken Munro of the firm Pen Test Partners, which recently demonstrated security holes in a wireless access point found in some Mitsubishi vehicles said that security issues related to software running on vehicles are often “not on (carmakers) radar.” Craig Smith, an expert on connected vehicle security, said he sees a “split” in the automotive sector, with some car makers embracing open architectures and open source approaches to vehicle software, while others insist on closed ecosystems using proprietary software.Lexus, Toyota’s luxury car brand, has informed customers that a bad software update for its Enform entertainment system software is responsible for disabling the climate control, radio, GPS, Bluetooth wireless networking and other features on a range of models, including the 2016 RX, GS, NX and ES models, among others.“Errant data” sent by a third party that provides traffic and weather data service was “not handled as expected” by the Enform software that runs the center display on 2014-2016 model year Lexus and 2016 model year Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles, the company said in an emailed statement.

This will reject the old DVD currently installed in the unit.Ok unfortunately you can only get the navigation disc from the dealer . Sometimes you can get lucky and get the factory update dvd cheaper on ebay from the dealer.Also dont be fooled by any other site selling them alot are copies and do not work .I see "USB" on the official sites, but then I'm seeing information that the USB is just for the activation code or something.
