How to Reset Toyota Navigation

Many Toyota vehicles have factory navigation systems installed. These systems hold personal data such as recent locations, phone books, gas mileage and car maintenance records. When it's time to sell a Toyota with the factory navigation, you should reset it to the factory default. This will erase all personal data and help protect you from identity theft.
