And if you make the route on forehand on the website and send it to your car is that helping.

So once again I've just had a fight with planning a route. I need to go to my destination taking a long way around. So I added a destination and then added a stop point. That was not enough, because I had to add three stop points to make a route go where I needed it to go, because adding one stop point made ~100km longer route than it needed to be. So setting up a destination and adding all stop points took only half an hour (and that's not me, who was slow)...

And while calculating a route, that's what I got at one point (compare short and fast routes):

Toyota's navigation sucks big time...

Maybe you can try to Mirrorlink your smartphone on the chr screen. I saw some video's youtube about it. I didn´t try it myself, my smartphone doesn´t support it.

I think its just a case of using it to get used to the way it works. Its certainly very visible in a superb position.

Used it in Wales a couple of weeks ago.
I found it slow and it was always playing catch up when junctions, especially non motorway, were close together.
Queried it with Toyota and the car has had the software updated as the car was supplied in May with out of date software.
Have not tried it since.
Certainly in Wales I used my cheap tom tom and that was far superior.
It appears that the CHR sat nav does not not work off satellites but loaded mapping software that you can update annually at a lot of money if you wish.
Almost better to buy a tom tom or similar with free updates, just suffers cosmetically.

What do you mean the satnav has 3 years free map updates. So over 3 years, you start to pay if you stick to Toyota not now.
And I wonder if TomTom is superior, The screen resolution is better that is all. I used both in Devon last summer at the same time and Toyota worked all right. So I can,t say that TomTom was superior. Toyota gives me the traffic announcement (From TomTom). I admit the startup is longer from Toyota if you compare it to TomTom but not so much. My TomTom is a Go 5000 with live Traffic.
The Toyota is a touch 2 with Go Plus with live Traffic. So I am not the disappointment.

i can assure you it does connect to gps satellites ,only off of loaded mapping software when no signal found.
it does take some time to get used to it and get the best out of it,

I am sure that I read somewhere that Toyota's sat nav is TomTom based.

If it comes up with a detour, I always take it now, saved me 25 mins today. The only time I ignored it Icame to a closed road and had to turn round and drive back
