  1. I know it is quite a rare setup as it is relevant to a relatively limited number of Lexus cars but I was still hoping that someone might have a solution or at least could provide me with some additional info. I am an owner of a RX350 (mid 2012 -2015 model version) that comes with a 7th GEN navigation system based on HDD. It is updated via maps on a USB stick and requires a License Key input. I know how to get the key, however, I was wondering how to get the maps. I have a feeling that potentially the map files of GEN 7 and previous WHEREIS DVD operated systems look the same. I was just wondering if anyone knows if the DVD content can be put on a USB stick (and in what folder structure etc) and used in a GEN 7 navigation update. Any additional details on this situation will be appreciated. Cheers
  2. From my experience an 2014 model of RX is supposed to have a completely different navigation system to what your neighbor has. Your have a gen 7 HDD based navigation system which is updated via a USB stick and requires a Licence Key input. I don't believe you have an SD slot in your car for that matter and you are mixing incompatible maps and Nav systems. Cheers
