Maintaining Your Lexus NAVIGATION System

 TECH TIPS from the TECH GURU

You’ve heard the cliche “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!”  That makes plenty of sense doesn’t it, but let’s consider something.  Why would you allow it to break or lose functionality?

Maintaining your NAVIGATION/BLUETOOTH system is as important as keeping up with your vehicle’s maintenance.  Think of your NAVIGATION/BLUETOOTH system as your wisdom teeth.  They always seem to let you down at the most inopportune time (i.e. while on vacation, or while traveling in an unfamiliar city).

It is best practice to come into the dealership to have the following performed periodically:

  • Remove old cellular devices from your vehicle’s BLUETOOTH system that you’re not using.
  • Clear out stored PREVIOUS DESTINATIONS that you will never revisit to make room for others.
  • Remove your phonebook contacts from your vehicle and reinstall to ensure your contacts and phone numbers are up to date.
  • Reset your speed dials to ensure you have your favorite contacts are set.
  • Reboot your NAVIGATION/BLUETOOTH system and your cellular phone to maximize connectivity and longevity.
  • Update your NAVIGATION maps with the newest version to ensure addresses you need can be located (fees apply).  Locate new developments, restaurants, streets and malls for cities and states that you travel in, are a few of the benefits the upgrade provides.

All these functions can be performed for you by Lexus of Richmond’s TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST within minutes at no cost to you (with the exception of the NAVIGATION map upgrade).

If you’re interested in having your NAVIGATION maps upgraded to the newest versions, please feel free to call our BDC Team directly at (804) 323-7695 for pricing and availability.

Lexus of Richmond – 2012 March for Babies!

When you think of babies, do you think Lexus of Richmond?  Well you should, and here’s why!

The staff and management of Lexus of Richmond had an awesome time supporting this year’s Born healthyMARCH of DIMES  – MARCH for BABIES

This year marked the third consecutive year that we’ve supported March of Dimes – March for Babies. Each year has afforded us an opportunity to come up with creative ideas to raise money and ensure we do our part in aiding in the birth of healthy babies and combat against infant mortality.  We’re equally passionate, because of the “premature” births we’ve encountered within our own Lexus of Richmond family.  Had it not been for the research and mission of the March of Dimes, our babies would not have had the wonderful outcomes they did, and we’re so grateful.

Our goal this year was to present MARCH for BABIES a donation of $5,000.00.  With group activities, fundraisers, customer donations  and the Lexus family, we met and exceeded our goal!  Our fundraising endeavors ranged from an Ultimate Yard Sale to Blue Jeans for Babies, and many others.  Not only did Lexus of Richmond show our support monetarily, we were the “official car” for the walk as well.  Our 2013 Lexus GS served as the pace car, accompanied by our Lexus RX

This year’s event ended on Sunday, April 22, 2012 with a MARCH for BABIES walk in Monroe Park, located in Richmond, Virginia.  It was a chilly, rainy day, but everyone passionate about the cause showed up in their rain coats, rain boots, and umbrellas to walk five miles to say “I care”. 

The March Continues!

One Day All Babies Will Be Born Healthy

So the next time you think “Lexus”, not only should you think Lexus of Richmond, but think “babies” and how much we love them.  We’re looking forward to participating in the 2013 March of Dimes – March for Babies!  We hope you can join our efforts.
