Question about Sylvania GPS

2 Answers

Recently my brother bought a Sylvania SGPD432 GPS device in Phoenix, Arizona, while he was touring the USA. Now he is home in Australia he would like to know if it is possible to buy and download Australian maps so that he can use the device here. Can you please advise me? Thank you.

    I have not been able to find out any relevant information from Tele Atlas. I have also been advised to contact Sygic regarding Australian maps, but they could not help either. Sylvania Australia have no knowledge of Sylvania products sold in the USA, and the reply to my query to Sylvania USA was unreadable.

    I think this answer must be correct, there doesn't seem to be any way to download international maps for the Sylvania GPS. Thank you for your help!

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

SGPD432 gps device US and Canada Maps are built in. Curtis International is the gps device manufacturer for Sylvania. Both companies do not offer map purchase. Tele Atlas is the 3rd party mapping data provider for this device. Although I have already searched, my suggestion is to email Tele Atlas if they offer a map purchase for the SGPD432.

My sgpd 432 blows the fuse every time I plug it to charge or to use it. I need to get it fixed a.s.a.p. as I use it for my work


did you try another charging cable/device, or connecting cable to computer (if relevant) !? can you change the inner battery (probably not) ?
if you did, and prob remains, then your device might be dying, and needs to be fixed/replaced :-(

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.

Model SGPD432. How do I update my maps?


Hello Karen,
You need to connect the GPS to your PC or Laptop, make sure you have internet service. Plug it into the usb port and follow the prompt.
Depending on warranty, you may have to pay for updates.
Here is a link to the manual for your GPS.
Good Luck,
JP

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.
