    Default Toyota-Lexus WhereIs v20 AU-NZ 2014

    Toyota-Lexus WhereIs v20 AU-NZ 2014 [also suits early Subaru >~2008 and all Tribeca models]. The C2 version used by MMC, some Mazda & later Subaru ~2008>, see [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]].

    Download from
    Spoiler:
    RAR files: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (4,558MB in 12 parts).
    Torrent file: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Alternated download from 1fichier in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If wanting to use a single layer disc, it's MUCH safer to remove unneeded POIs than take a risk removing the LOADING.KWI. See [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for more details.

    'How to load' methods:

    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
    My car is Toyota Camry Azura 2002 model (MCV36R). This downloading took nearly 12 hours (Used bittorrent client SW). Since this doesn't fit for DVD+R single layer, I burned in to Dual Layer DVD at 4X speed, which took nearly 5 hours. Once I try in my car, it said "No Map data". Since my car is older, it couldn't read DL DVD(I guess). Then I burned into DVD-R normal one with "poweriso" burner (which can be downloaded) after removing "LOADING.KWI". Burning with poweriso at 16x speed (default) took only 5 minutes to burn. Some people recommended low speed burning, else DVD won't work. Mine fine. It's working perfectly. I can recommend this for 02-06 model cars as they may not read Double Layer DVD. If anyone can identify New Zealand map data and delete it, then no need to delete "LOADING.KWI" file. I already used V19 map which got same size "LOADING.KWI" file which is loaded into car-GPS computer memory once you put new MAP update. This file needs to run the base SW which is always store in the GPS system memory. Cheers

    --------------------

    Just deleted the MDS file. Use ImgBurn to select the ISO file and 'write to disc' using a DVD+R DL (Dual Layer) disc. Works 100% on 2008 Kluger Grande

    --------------------

    Open file in Power.iso Remove the file called LOADING.KWI from within power.iso. If you don't then you will install update only. After this is done, using power.iso burn the remaining files on a SINGLE LAYER DVD. It should work, it did for me.

    The DVD works perfectly for my Toyota Kluger Grande 2005, I also had a workaround for the LOADING.KWI file. These are what I have done from the information gathered in this thread:
    1. Download the "Whereis v20 Toyota Australia - NZ 2014" iso file from the shared torrent. This file can not be burned to a normal 4.7GB DVD as it is too large and people have suggested to remove the file LOADING.KWI, it is OK but we can do a little bit more than that.
    2. Use PowerISO to open the iso file (Original) and remove the LOADING.KWI and save it as new iso file 1. (PowerISO was shared by someone in this thread, thanks for that!).
    3. Use ImgBurn to write that new iso file 1 to a DVD+R 4.7GB at x4 rate (called DVD 1 without LOADING). (Free at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ])
    4. Again, use PowerISO to open the iso file (Original) and remove the file POISR001.IDX (in the IDX forder, I guess it stores points of interest) and save it as new iso file 2.
    5. Use ImgBurn to write that new iso file 2 to another DVD+R 4.7GB at x4 rate (called DVD 2 without POI).
    6. Put the "DVD 2 without POI" in the car first, it loads contains in (as the LOADING.KWI is in there) and works perfectly. However some POIs might be missing.
    7. Replace DVD 2 by "DVD 1 without LOADING", as the loading has been done before, this DVD just works seamlessly without missing anything!!

    Cheers

    No luck here
    The archive files unpacked to an .iso file too large to fit on dvd-R disk, and it appears to be designed to be loaded onto a hard drive.

    I tried 2 separate downloads and unpacked them with both Winrar and 7zip.
    In all 4 cases the resulting .iso file size was 4,667,552 KB

    Then looking at this .iso file with a hex editor showed that it started with large blocks of 00 bytes with "Smart storage Inc" labels.
    Further in was the text "TOYOTA" and "LEXUS" and some stuff about loading the HDD with an external HDD tool.
    Then came some interesting stuff about "FRONT ELECTRIC MOTOR", "REAR ELECTRIC MOTOR", "FUEL CELL", "FCHV ERROR DETECTED", and "The hydrogen level is low. Please refuel immediately."

    So this appears to be in a different format and not suitable for our now old technology Prius.
    However, v20 torrents are now starting to appear, so there is still hope for a valid update soon.

    Bugger. - There is also an .iso torrent file "Toyota-Lexus WhereIs v20 AU-NZ 2014" on other sites which I found to be just the same and just as useless.

    The .iso file has been confirmed working (not by me) on dl and sl discs.
    As I live in Europe, and dont have hardware to test, I only looked in version file
    to confirm its the right version.

    So maybe you need to change disc type and/or burner.

    Unfortunately, for me, burning the disk is not the problem.
    I have discovered that there are now two types of nav systems in use.
    The latest vehicles use a hard disk drive system which can be updated in several ways. One method is from a dvd and a loading tool, and is generally done by the dealer.
    This .iso file we get after unpacking does not contain any of the .kwi files I expected, but has blocks of text referring to hard disk drive and loading tool, so it seems obvious that this is an update for the HDD nav system.
    Doubtless it works (as you confirm) but only if you have a HDD nav system.

    Hi,
    I'm having the same problem. download the iso image. but when tried to burn it on a single layer 4.7gb (4,38gb) dvd, it wouldn't burn coz of lack of enough space. I haven't tried burning it on a dual layer. Will that work? I have toyota kluger 2012.

    OK. My theory has been shot down in flames.
    It seems that the extra size may be a loader for the newer HDD systems, but the system still uses the old .kwi format files.
    Info on other sites say you need to use a double layer DVD +R disk now, not the previous single layer DVD -R.
    I'll see how it goes when I get a DVD +R DL disk, and it may be possible to delete some of the extra stuff and get it to fit onto a single layer disk.
    I managed to burn part of the .iso onto an erasable dvd and it showed some of the .kwi files we require. Also others are reporting success using the DL DVD +R, so there is hope for us yet.

    Thanks for that info Terry. Based on that I'm now downloading it but at this rate won't have the complete file until tomorrow sometime when i'll also have a look how it can be done with SL disc.

    It's looking good now
    I have just discovered that you don't have to burn a disk to see what the .iso file makes.
    I found WinRar can deconstruct an .iso file and show me what it will produce while I wait to get a dual layer disk.
    Here is the comparison between the v19 and v20 files.
    Compare v19 v20 zps653ba11d
    Notice there are now two extra files, VIRTUAL0.DAT and VIRTUAL1.DAT. These are blocks filled with "00" bytes which I suspect get filled with vehicle specific menus and the like when loaded by the HDD tool when a HDD system is used.
    I expect these two files could be safely deleted if we are trying to reduce the size for a single layer disk. Unfortunately, that would only save 896 kB but some other files are now larger (ALLDATA.KWI +6.2MB, REGION.KWI +27.9 MB and the killer is the IDX foleder wich is up by 51 MB). So unless someone knows how to delete the NZ stuff or a lot of useless POI entries we are now stuck with having to use a double layer disk.
    Still, that is not really such a great problem.

    G'day,

    If you go to the link below:

    DownLoad Virtual CloneDrive (Freeware)

    Follow the instructions & install.

    "Mount" the "iso" file & your computer will treat it like a real DVD

    In windows 8 just right click on the iso file and choose MOUNT from the context menu. Then check your cd/dvd drive in "MyComputer". It shows as if there is a disk in the drive and you can see all the files in the iso. This may also work in win 7.
