Newish vehicle owners opinions needed

Recommended Posts

Please would any owner of a relatively new Toyota post their opinion of the navigation system.

In particular I am interested in the age of the information used by Toyota for my ongoing battle with them to get current maps, POI's etc

Please would you look at your unit to check if it is using the same maps as mine?  (Prado 2015) From the map screen press, menu, more, help, about, more, content, maps.

I think it will show Australia HERE map from 2013 Q4

Toyota claim that the latest map for my vehicle, and I presume any other vehicle is part number PZQ 6000250 which apparently was released in July 2015 and is made by "whereis" not HERE.

If this will work in a recently built car (which I doubt) then why are we stuck with over two year old maps?

Please look and post here as I think many people assume they have the latest maps available. I was cheeky enough yesterday to ask someone parking their similar age car to mine yesterday if their navigation was up to date. "Yes definitely" they replied, however on letting me show them the menu they were annoyed to discover the maps were as outdated as mine.

That is correct. My 2015 Prado Diesel GLX (latest smaller engine) has that map. 

I recall you saying elsewhere that Toyota have an updated map at $300 but you don't believe it will work? Because its a "WHEREIS" and the original is "HERE"? Maybe I got that wrong, but all it needs to run different maps, is software that recognises the map. And that can be achieved via an update, if the original software does not do already do so.

Yes I have only assumed, perhaps wrongly that the "whereis" map will not work as the original is made by "HERE"

I would love to be proved wrong and am trying to get the dealer to obtain a micro sd card to try it. At present they say that "there is not one in the country" so will let you know what happens.
