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.

Avic x910bt head unit continues to reboot at splash screen , tried firmware update but since it never actually boots it won't read the SD card , please help


Press the MENU and MAP during power up with the SD fireware 3.02X inserted. The screen will turn white with the words UPDATING, I have all ready updated my unit a year a ago before the rebooting problem. I just go this problem also i evenually got in to boot after eleven cycles of rebooting. My firmware updates were missing for the bluetooth and O/S. I reinstalled both updates and I still have the same problem. Its odd that everyone is getting this problem around the same time. I think its an intermitenground or resistor that is just from aging. Pioneer want a flat rate of $200.00 for all repairs.

CAN YOU DOWNLOAD AND BURN THE MAP DISK FOR THE PIONEER AVIC-D3? HOW CAN YOU CHANGE THE BACKGROUND PICS? SAME PRODUCT!


So far you cannot. The only way for it to work is to burn the map file onto a DVD DL disk. But the Avic D3 cannot read those disks. Currently Im trying to burn the map file along with music files to see if it an all work at once (cutting out the need to switch disks). So far, no dice. Ill post up the process once I get it to work

There is an update on ebay and other sites for about $250. Also try the pioneer web site. If this is new construction, it probably will not be available for atleast another year.

Map Disks Europe


The disks will work, but the gps unit will not. so the navigation will be useless.

US / Uk compatability


Aside from the radio frequency, the unit will work fine. I am not so sure on the navigation, although I would imagine the detailed maps on the disks wouldn't have an issue loading up.

US version in Europe


Hi,

I also tried playing the European East DVD without success.
FM goes by increment of .2, impair. i.e. you can not get 98.2.
You can only have 98.1 or 98.3.
Calling Pioneer Us did not help.

AVIC-N1 GPS not working


Have you tried calibrating the sensors? And is the speed sense working, i thing the unit relies primarily on the speed sense then on GPS. You can easily tell if the speed sense is woking on the calibration screen, as you drive the unit omits a bleep.
