Europe GPS Disks

According to Pioneer this won't work and again according to pioneer a European map won;t work on he US unit. Are they just saying this to stop people in Europe buying cheap units from the US and using them in Europe?

I need to know if anyone has actualy achived this and also if i can buy the European mapping disks from the US, this way it would have to be compatable

    That'll be brilliant if you can as it seems a waste to have to bin it and have to buy a new unit

  • grtom May 11, 2008

    Where is the best place to get a "copy " of the EU mapping software to try. I'm not interested in the radio features at all.

  • grtom May 12, 2008

    Is there anyway you can find out if i can buy the disks for Europe in the states.I have not purchased this unit in the US to try and save money against the price in the Uk , the vehicle I have just bought has it fitted from the factory,I just want it to work where I live.

    Pioneer say that the unit is programmed to only work in North america. Is this true

Hi,

You should be able to use European maps on it. The problem is finding the discs. I will post back as soon as I find where you can buy them in the US.

I know of people that have used the EU mapping software in the US model with no problem even with Pioneer saying it can't be done, as the unit is from the US some "local" features don't work, but the GPS feature is the same (As it hooks up with what ever public sat is avaliable)

I don't however know if they have made any chances in last 6 months or so to the lastest version of map software that lock's the unit from using the US unit with EU maps, I however doubt they would do this as it would stop the user from moving around the globe.

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300


If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

Psg map update


Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.

Pioneer avic x1


GPS has global coverage. I see your problem is sourcing the map of Australia because the x1 comes only with Europe maps on CD. there may be a possibility the S2 maps work on the x1. Try contacting Pioneer Australia http://www.pioneer.com.au/customerservice/
