Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

I have recently purchased nüMaps


Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

You can go to Sony's site and download a map upgrade. From what I saw it was a 100 dollar package and they were sold out.

Download latest US maps into NAV-U70


Yea, I can solve the problem by ordering the up dated CD for maps of the US, this allows me to only use the GPS by regions, not the entire US. It costs $59.00. I am at this time unemployed so I guess I wait for better days.
Thanks anyway

GPS (Europe) work in Canada?


Unfortunately you cannot install Sony North American maps on your GPS but you can add another GPS application as iGO8 etc.
Let me know if you decide to sell your GPS here in Canada.

I inquired of Sony about map updates for my navu-73T after realizing several routes took me way out of the way. I was told "Unfortunately, map updates are not available for your Sony GPS Navigation System at present. If available, it can be purchased from our Parts and Accessories Sales Web site or from the Sony Style Web site. " They provided this site:

Web Site to Update GPS


http://www.navman.com/Navman/Templates/standardcontent____24709.aspx

I'm in Australia, so if you're not you will need to go to the navman website and select your country, then find the update. The update is done through the NavDesk software I think.

Maps


By MS Active sync from computer delete file Mounted Volume/my flash/sony/nav-u.exe (the folder SONY is hidden, you must set show hidden files in your comuter first). And then replace old navi file by exe file of total commander CE version ( download is free on site of developer) .You must rename the totalcmd.exe to nav-u.exe. Now after reboot is allowed everything, including executing any other navi software like tomtom, igo, navigon and many other (multimedia players). The oficial navi (old navigon) by sony is not so good in compare with new navi soft. .. enjoy.
