Continuing Lexus’ round of technology upgrades, the RX300 and SC430 will receive an upgraded satellite navigation system, to be announced at next month’s Paris Motor Show.

The upgraded Lexus Navigator satellite navigation system for the RX300 and SC430 is equipped with Electronic Traffic Avoidance (ETA), a function that helps the driver avoid traffic jams on programmed routes by offering the option of a strategic diversion.

The equipment also features a new voice recognition function that can recognise more than 200 spoken commands relating to the navigation and audio systems.

In addition, both the RX300 and SC430 gain the latest Bluetooth wireless technology which permits instant hands-free use of compatible mobile telephones.
