Question about Panasonic Strada CN-NVD905U GPS Receiver

2 Answers

2 Things I'd like to overcome

Hi,Ive just bought the Strada from eBay. I live in Australia so the region is posing a bit of a problem. I know there's a code to unlock it but am having trouble tracking it down. Any ideas?

And secondly, if you've ever seen the unit in action,it's absolutely fantastic (in my eyes) although it has the most annoying feature. Every time you turn it on it asks for you to agree that you will not watch the screen whilst driving. Every single time!! I realize this is warranted by law but it just seems a little excessive.

Anyway,if there's any solutions to these problems, I'd love a bit of input.

What region is the DVD player that comes with the new TEAC TV that I bought? I can't find the info on the manual or the internet. Please help. I live in Australia. Thanks.

It depends if the DVD player is separate to the TV or built into it. Assuming the DVD is a separate unit, it must be region 4 for Australia, unless specified otherwise (on the player's rear panel or in the operation manual). The only types of DVD players/recorders allowable in Australia are region 4, and multi-region. If the player plays region 4 DVDs, but not other regions, there's your answer. A model number and/or brand of the DVD player would help.

I have a panasonic dvd player model no: DMR EX78 I live in south east Melbourne Australia and have purchased a few dvds from Amazon, sometimes I get a message saying something about regions, I spoke to my...

The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.

There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.

No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.

Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.

On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.

DVD region default setting

Click Start - My Computer then Right click on the DVD drive - click on Properties - Click on Hardware tab - click on the DVD drive to highlight this drive then click Properties - then click DVD Region tab.
Now you can change the region.
It shows the current Region - Enter a new Region and click OK

If you have run out of Region changes, please let me know and I can advise you how to get around this problem.

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?

I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on:
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

How do i get my davsc5 dvd to play region 4 dvd's as we have moved to Australia.


Sony units are a bit tricky to hack and make region free and/or change region. Most require specialized IrDA controllers. Pls try this site and the information there may be of help to you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
