Toyota Venza Navigation Instructions

by Dustin Thornton

The Venza is a cross-over wagon manufactured by Toyota introduced in 2008. Like other modern vehicles the Toyota Venza has a touchscreen navigation system built into the dash that features GPS navigation as well as Bluetooth hands-free calling. Although setting the destination address on the Toyota Venza navigation system may seem complicated at first, it is a straight-forward task and relatively simple once you understand how.

Stop the vehicle and put the gear in "Park." For safety, Toyota requires the vehicle not be moving to set the destination address in the navigation system.

Press the "DEST" button on the right side of the navigation control panel in the Toyota Venza.

Tap the "Address" button on the touchscreen of the navigation panel.

Tap "Search Area" on the touchscreen. A map of the United States will appear.

Select your search area from the list of available search areas on the touchscreen and tap "OK." Each of the search areas pertains to a specific region in the United States; for example, the "US2" search area encompasses areas within California and Nevada.

Input the name of the destination city using the letters on the touchscreen. Tap "OK." A list of city names matching the city name entered will appear. Tap the desired city name from the list.

Input the name of the destination street using the letters on the touchscreen, without any suffixes or prefixes. Tap "OK." A list of street names matching the street name entered will appear. Tap the desired street name from the list.

Input the street number using the numbers on the touchscreen and tap "OK."

Tap "Go To" on the screen to begin navigation.
