    I worked on bypassing the nag screen for awhile but had little successes. Sorry my hacking skills are not good enough. There are electrical mods out there that will automatically acknowledge the nag. One is an aftermarket, don't know if it is still available, and a couple are diy. Do a search for Goldwing Nav Mod.

    Hello

    I have the 4.31 version on a 2008 Goldwing 1800.
    Can I update the firmware to 4.70 and use NT maps ?
    Reading the forum, the answer is yes but I just want to be sure so I don't brick my GPS.
    Thanks.

    Default 4.70 firmware South African maps

    Hi All! New Goldwing owner and need assistance with firmware update with Maps for South Africa.

    Firmware / software version 4.40.
    2009 Goldwing 1800GL (brought to South Africa in 2010).

    From previous posts I understand that firmware can be done (safety precaution is to make back-up of current before attempting any of the instructions above).

    I'm just not sure how to update the South African maps (you know we like to change street names to confuse people and waste money).

    Yes, follow the instructions in initial post and you'll be able to use NA NT maps but be aware that search for POIs is compromised. The flash is safe but there's no guarantees and you maybe will need to update in stages from such a low fw version. If needed V4.50 is available here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    G'day BunnyBabe, welcome to GPS Power.

    Don't attempt to flash this HWID 0265 firmware to your 2009 model because it has a totally different Navi unit. Your device updates fw and reads detail mapping from an SD card, the hardware inside the 'travel trunk' [boot] looks similar to 06-08 models except for the card slot, but the upfront navi is entirely different and it can already read NT mapping and has a different HWID of 0712. If you post the present structure of contents of your SD card it may be possible to get help with a mapping change to SAf.

    Thanks for the quick answer
    What if I want to use Europe NT maps ?
    Is it still possible or will only US maps work ?

    Yes, EU mapping will work for the Continent but from memory your device is still subject to a map img file not exceeding 2GiB. If you use the bike on UK roads it will not route you properly with US fw as it cannot understand driving on the left. It's a particular problem for exits on UK motorways by other reports.

    Thanks a lot, I've installed it and it works now
    Another quick little question, is it possible to add voices and to change the written language of the GPS ?
    The priority being the voices obviously.
    Thanks again for your precious help !

    if you search back thru this thread you'll find posts by kunix and others where the US fw was modded to use other voices. As stock, US firmware is limited to EN in V4.70, in an earlier version Canadian FR was supported however.

    The other very risky solution would be to attempt a conversion to EU fw and unless you know exactly what you're doing you'll likely badly brick your Navi unit, maybe permanently so i wouldn't recommend it if you don't have very advanced software skills and are also familiar with manipulating this type of Garmin firmware. The fact that kunix decided it would be easier to add EU languages to US fw rather than modify EU fw to run on US hardware speaks volumes to me.

    I'm away from my usual PC for a couple more days. I may have downloaded the files myself at the time so i'll check when i can soon. In the meantime one of the guys involved might re-post the modded fw for you.
