Hi guys :) I have Toyota Avensis 2004 D4-D 2.0l . I have TNS 300-310 navigation system (dunno which one exactly), i have 2004/2005 DVD. I was wondering if there's a way to download the 2008 DVD? Because i don't want to spend a lot of money for it...

Frequently used systems, such as the audio system and cruise control, have switches conveniently positioned on the steering wheel. The multifunction Interface Dial, which operates navigation system functions, is positioned just ahead of the shifter lever within easy reach.
The five o'clock position on the steering wheel has switches that operate the Multi-Information Display (MID). The seven o'clock position is reserved for Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Technology Package navigation system controls, including a push-to-talk button to activate the voice recognition system, which provides voice control over a wide range of features.
Significant engineering went into the MDX's interior lighting to provide clear visibility, the right ambience and optimized illumination levels regardless of ambient lighting. The analog instruments are LED backlit, with high-contrast markings and a subdued blue accent hue. Transparent illuminated pointers provide clarity and a high-end look. Auto Interior Dimming automatically and progressively adjusts the instrument and navigation system (if so equipped) illumination to suit the ambient lighting conditions. The sensitivity is owner-adjustable to one of five different levels, or interior dimming may be switched off entirely.
When equipped with the Technology Package, the climate control benefits from GPS-linked, solar-sensing actuation. Based on its continuously updated vehicle position information, the navigation system determines the position of the sun relative to the driver and passenger. When in AUTO mode, this information is combined with input from the solar sensor located on top of the instrument panel to automatically adjust the temperature from side to side as needed to compensate for asymmetrical solar heating.
Large-format controls make the system simple and intuitive to operate. A prominent display below the center instrument panel vents shows the current audio system status at all times, independent of the navigation system (which is also included in the Technology Package). Screens within the navigation system menus display the current audio system status, audio track listings and more. Items that appear on the navigation system screen can be navigated and selected via the interface dial, which is conveniently positioned on the console.
On all models with the navigation system, up to 50 names with one number per name can be stored with voice tags in the system's Voice Tag Phonebook. For users with large phonebooks in their mobile phone memory, the available navigation system, working in conjunction with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, can import up to 1,000 names with 10 phone numbers per name. Up to six different compatible mobile telephones can be paired with the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® system. Additional information can be found at www.acura.com/handsfreelink or www.handsfreelink.com.
The navigation system can be controlled by voice, or by the interface dial. For voice operation, the driver simply presses the "Talk" button on the steering wheel and says any of a number of preset command phrases. The system responds to 832 command phrases, as well as to spoken city and street names. Sophisticated voice recognition technology allows the MDX owner to simply speak city and street names aloud, and the system responds by displaying matches from the available database.
When the "Talk" button is pressed, the audio system is automatically muted, and an overhead microphone receives the command from the driver. Commands can be given in plain English, like "Display gas stations," "Find nearest hospital," or "Find nearest Chinese restaurant." You can choose to display points of interest on the map (like restaurants, or ATMs, for example), or have the system provide turn-by-turn navigation - all by voice. The extensive point-of-interest database includes phone numbers that can be dialed by using the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® system and the driver's compatible Bluetooth® cellular telephone.
AcuraLink® messages consist of a displayed text plus full details via Text-To-Speech that can be heard over the MDX audio system. Each message is prioritized by importance. High priority messages are displayed immediately upon receipt. Other messages trigger an icon on the navigation display. In all cases, the MDX owner can choose to read the message immediately, or archive it to be read later. 2b1af7f3a8
