How Old Is Your Map?
It’s easy to check the age of the map database in your vehicle once you know what Generation navigation system is in your Lexus. Refer to the “What to Order” section of this website for a chart that will help you determine the Generation navigation system based on your Lexus model and model year.
The map version is a numerical code indicating the calendar year in which the map database was created. For example, v14.1 is the map database created in CY14. So, the smaller the version number, the older the map database.
