The satellite radio text display gets cut off. Is there a way to display the entire message or scroll through? For instance if listening to a game the score will come up saying TEAM A 55pts and TEAM B (score cut off). Can anyone tell me how to read the rest of the message? Thanks, Mike

In an effort to bump this up again, I agree, its annoying. Between this and the volume drop for Satellite I'm really disappointed in the factor non-nav head unit. Anyone know how to get this display to scroll? Anyone contemplating changing out the head unit?

All the Toyota head units, with or without NAV, will not scroll. Sad that my $100 portable unit does and these higher priced manufacture units will not. It really is a pain at times when you want to see the full text message and it's cut off. :mad:

Any idea if or when this will be addressed in a software update? Seems kinda silly that they don't display the entire song name / message when there is plenty of space available. Also, is there any way to keep the audio info displayed while showing the map (or anything else)? Am I missing something? My old Ford Edge (with Sync) showed the song info on the screen all the time...the clock too. sigh.

To be honest I don't really think Lexus (or Toyota) cares about the radios short comings.

I agree that the competition has much better offerings and hopefully Lexus/Toyota will be forced into making upgrades just to keep up with the competition, I think that is our only hope.

You summed it up perfectly. Lexus is not going to retrofit our radios but hopefully they'll make better audio choices on future models. I love the audio system I have in my Acura and practically cringe when I listen to the mono sounding radio in the CT.

I've owned several Prii and other Toyotas dating back to2006 as well as a 2010 Lexus RX450h and now my CT200h. They all have exactly the same nav/entertainment sysyems and they have'nt changed one iota since 2006. From the least expensive Toyota to the most expensive Lexus, they all have the same lousy, outdated system. It's really kind of amazing.

Are you saying that Lexus’ "Pursuit of Excellence" is just a marketing slogan and not really true?
