Altezza Sat Nav

Recommended Posts

I,ve just updated my RS200 sat nav from Jap to UK version but the mapping is dated.

Does anyone know where I can get a cheap newish CD rom from ?

Hi Steve,

I thought that would be the case, just wondered if the plugs on the jap unit would fit the UK drive unit.

I have nav by other means so not a biggie :)

Yes, simply changed the CD drive unit from a written off IS200, all plugs are the same, very quick job even the jap remote has colour coded buttons so no need to learn Japanese.

Have tried ebay no go for disk, will have to go to Lexus.

Thanks.

Thanks SCarFace, Had a read through that link and wasnt that helpful. Havent picked up my car yet so i dont now if it has a dvd drive or cd drive. Is the satnav drive the one in the dash or is it located elsewhere in the car? Couldnt find any drives on ebay

Hi, assuming it is the CD version then the sat nav drive is the one in the boot under the carpet, RHS as looking from the back of the car. It is simple to change I think 3 screws and some plugs.

Found the unit in the boot, its a cd unit. would i be best off getting the european unit from Toyota or Lexus?

You could do and it would work, but it will cost a packet.

See if you can get one from ebay or a second hand one from somewhere may be a scrap dealer.

I got mine second hand for £100
