SOURCE: Recently my brother bought a

Unfortunately as this is a US produced product, the maps are built into the system unlike other devices like TomTom and Garmin. On these devices they are stored on a memory card but the Sylvania is actually stored on a eprom within the unit. To my knowledge there is currently no way to rewrite maps to the eprom on the Sylvania so unfortunately he will probably have to buy himself a new unit for Australia.

Sorry I cant give any better news

Thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: I have sylvania SGPD430

Are you check your SYL_SGPD430 User Manual ? Turn on the unit, enter 'System' menu in the initial screen and set the current date and time. The maps get activated when the unit is set to real time.

Additionally, I suggest download the updater tool. Start it then follow instructions. Its possibe that you need some updated maps.

Hope this helps.

The centering screen is pretty much useless, that failed to incorporate an escape or exit button, the best way to end the screen is to simply hold down the power off button, then release, this should reset the GPS when you turn it back on it will go back to it's usual startup screen.

If you do not have the owner manual Google the model number with "manual" or as a last resort contact the Maker. (Sylvania is Philips who likely did not make the unit but had it made and their name put on it.)

I accidentally formatted my Sylvania SGPD432 GPS and now all of its software is gone. How do I get it back? Resetting doesn't work. Where can I download/get its software?

Buy something other than a Sylvania or Curtis GPS. I have the same issue and the company's customer support is virtually nonexistant. I've tried the link already mentioned and it is worthless. I've tried their customer support 3 times and gotten 3 different answeres, none of which resolved the issue. No response from their corp. office etither.
