    It will eventually drop out. But you are correct it works for short durations.

    I can't compare directly to the old gen nav, and I've never pressure tested it against my phone, but the few times I've used the 4Runner nav has been pretty good?!

    I use apple car play with my 19 Z06 corvette works awesome. As long as you have cell signal before you start your destination it will get you there. I had no issues recently in NC for a week trip.

    Why would you expect a databased map without any sort of connectivity to magically know there’s construction or closed ramps? The nav works fine when you have reasonable expectations.

    With HD Radio its supposed to give traffic updates and has in the past.... The biggest gripe was it was going to take me an hour longer on all 3 routes than what my iPhone was going to?? plus toll roads and all that bullshit on the preferred route it picked?? It will get you there but there is definitely for room for improvement.

    Hello Jon,

    The Nav is my only disappointment with my 2016 4R. It is really pathetic and outdated in most cases. When on a trip I always end up using my android and google maps. Not sure why Toyota Corp. doesn't address this especially with their emphasis on quality.
