I hope to purchase an '04 SRX tomorrow with nav. Can someone provide me with a URL about the hardware and software used in the '04s?
My point of reference for comparision is Garmin's 2610 which has many good features and comes in handy with rental cars. Anyway, I am interested in things like saved waypoints, auto-routing especially when getting off route, turn-by-turn directions for how much of USA? For example, the maps used by the Infiniti FX45 (Zenrin) gives turn by turn directions for only 5% of the continental USA, but the SRX and RX330 apparently both used Navtech.
http://www.autonav2000.com/Compare/compare2.htm suggests that the SRX may use a Deneso system which may or may not be like the one used by Lexus. I tested the nav in an RX330 this week and it failed my supreme test which is to find Falcon, NC the smallest city I drive to once a year.
The only URL I know about Deneso is http://www.denso.com.au/dw/satnav/satnav_gen.htm which is not a complete fit.
I did an incomplete search here which has helpful info, but have yet to see an answer to my specific questions. I am, however, interested in the earlier threads about stopping the "I Agree" button on start-up and being able to change routing while driving. I test drove an Escale recently and their system by Delphi at least allows you to change to five preset locations while driving.
I would also like to know if the SRX has any laser issues with the V1. Some FX owners report that their ICC constantly sets off the laser alert on their V1s.
