    Almost certainly it has a shock-proofed HDD or an SSD internally in that case. Sorry, I believe Toyota dealers use an expensive software tool running on an internet connected computer to add maps from a 'special on-off load' DVD purchased by dealers on behalf of the customer. It not only loads the map data from the DVD but reads some unique key from it and locks the maps to the specific head unit by registering the details on a Toyota server somewhere. Therefore the map update DVD can only be used once.

    I have read that the units with hard drives can be updated by buying another hard drive of similar size and type then cloning the original drive then replacing the old map data with new. I've also read that unless you use an expensive shock-proofed drive that it won't last long. I haven't read of any solution for SSD fitted units.

    You could try opening a new thread in here but i don't really expect that you'll get any more info that will help you. Worth a try though.

    I am hoping someone can help me. I am a little technologically challenged, so bear with me.
    I have a 2008 RX350, and have previously updated my maps to V19 using an ISO file. I am now wanting to update again to V20, but cant seem to get the disc to work in my car...here is what I have done to date:
    I have downloaded the file, unzipped it, and burnt the ISO file to a DL DVD using IMGBURN. I put it in my car, and it doesn't work.
    I have also tried deleting the LOADING.KWI file to enable me to burn it to a normal disc, however I cant seem to do that as I dont own a full version of the ISO software that allows me to modify the files, therefore cant save the new files once I have deleted the LOADING file.
    Can anyone help with any idea as to where I am going wrong? I have wasted enough discs, and am getting quite frustrated. Thanks

    G'day abevemi, welcome to GPS Power. Did you use DVD+R DL as said here?:

    I used ImgBurn 2.5.6.0 and it started by complaining that the layer break it got from the MDS file was not on a correct boundary.
    I manually set it to 1261456 as it suggested and then there were no other problems.
    As with the previous map updates, the map data is about a year old and I see that the Tullamarine freeway still shows old entry and exit ramps

    Yep, even used TDK as they seemed to be the better quality. I should note that when I add the file to IMGBURN, it tells me that I should have selected the MDS file instead, and that it would do it for me on that occasion (not sure if that is relevant).

    Did you CHANGE the MDS file layer break too? If so, try a different burner and/or different media or burn at a lower speed.

    As far as I think I got it right, I changed the file layer break. The only other burner I have is an external one for my Macbook pro - can I use a Macbook to burn an ISO file?

    I can't see that using a mac will be problematical but i can't say that categorically as i've only ever used a PC for burning. Try it at the slowest possible speed for the media and burner. Certainly if V19 works in your RX350, V20 should also. Good luck.
