When unit is powered on it says check map disc??????

I just bought an avn5500 and it isn't installed in my car because when i went to audio place they powered it up to make sure it worked and it keeps saying check map disc. i put in a copied 2.2 map version in and it says the same thing the guy at the audio place had a 1.6 version disc and it said the same thing. does anyone know what this means? also is the cd and dvd supposed to work without the map disc or should it just keep prompting you for disc.

Hi , hope someone can help. I am having problems with my eclipse avn 5500 navigation system reading the disc. It keeps saying check disc. Its the original disc not a copy. I did disconnect the car...

When the eclipse was installed the owner registered a disk for security reasons..... when power is disconnected the only way to resolve it is put the registered disk in!

We have recently changed the altinator in a 2008

I brought my vehicle to an audio installer/retailer and they sold the system that I had in my car. The store manager could not sell me the DVD, so he opened a package and booted my system with the DVD in the package at no charge.

Eclipse AVN-5435

for avn 5435 on the left:press menu and cont ant the same time, while holding them down press menu on the right 5 times

a menu will appear and ask you for a code. you have to call 800-233-2216 and pay $25 for the code. you will have to explain where you bought your eclipse and or know the name of the original owner. if it doesnt match they will not give it to you
