    Suits DVD based Toyota and Lexus plus maybe some Subaru and Ford models.

    AU 25 & NZ 14 2019

    AU stands for Australia. NZ stands for New Zealand.

    Wow, thanks Bazzle for V25! I've been stuck on V22 for years and this is a welcome update. Below is my experience with the download, burning and installation.

    The download was the hardest part! A bit of patience is required as Mega tries to make you pay but it successfully downloaded eventually. I did sign up for a free Mega account as part of the download. Just note that during the download, it stops and says you have to wait 5 hours before you can continue or pay. (Do not close your browser)

    I used single layer DVD-R 4.7gb discs for burning this program

    1) Download and save the ISO
    2) Open the ISO file with software such as PowerISO.
    3) Navigate to the IDX folder and delete any unwanted Points of Interest Data.
    4)I deleted all the NZ POI data (it is unlikely I will be driving from Perth to NZ anytime soon)
    New Zealand
    IDX\POISR008.IDX - NORTH ISLAND - 215MB
    IDX\POISR009.IDX - SOUTH ISLAND - 81MB
    5) I used PowerISO to burn the disc as well. I made sure the following options were also selected in 'Options-Configurations-File Systems'
    - UDF
    - Allow lower case

    **I burnt the disc at the slowest speed

    The installation was a success on a 2011 Kluger. It is now showing V25! Again, big thanks to Bazzle, that update was a long time coming!

    I believe its Australia and New Zealand Q1 2019 maps.

    Thanks Kombi for you advice above.
    Can you save your smaller AU iso and post a link here?

    Thanks bazzle and kombi, V25 - Without NZ worked fine for me on a 2011 IS350. I used ImgBurn to burn on a DVD-R (Single Layer). I was also stuck on v22 until this new version.

    I don't use the car GPS much as I use the Google Maps, but it's a good backup.

    This is a fake or is just someone who has labelled as V25... Even Navshop.com.au is only showing V23/24 with none of the changes even listed there by the OEM..

    I lived in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne and this map update doesn't even show the extended Mernda train line that was opened in 2018. (Still ends at Epping) It also doesn't show any of the new roads in my old estate or surrounding areas. (Plenty were added in 2017/2018 around my vicinity and nothing looks different at all from V22).
    Can anyone else verify that there are changes to this map!??!?

    A lot of maps may be labelled for example 2019 but may only of had a survey a year before.

    Thanks bazzle. I downloaded the NZ-less one (thanks to kombi17), burnt it onto a DVD using the default Windows 10 Image Burner. The utility doesn't have much configuration, so it burnt at the default 16x speed.

    Popped into the head unit, worked straightaway. The map flashed back to life literally a second after showing "reading map".

    Found a change log for v24/v13 version here:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Have to admit, I haven't found any new roads on this map yet. Moved the map around to a few places I know had new/different roads. None are reflected in this version. However, I'm not willing to dismiss it as "fake" this early. The disc image file size is slightly bigger, the file attributes are more recent too. Not to say these are difficult to fake, but it just doesn't add up.

    Care to let us know the source, bazzle?

    Edit:

    Found the perfect place to verify the version of this map: Seventh Street extension, Mascot Extend Seventh Street to Qantas Drive. (Under NSW section of the v24 change log, Google Maps Street View shows that this one really is new)

    Unfortunately the result is a disappointing "no", it looks the same as v22.

    What prompted me to do this test is the fact that there's no waiting time after putting the disc in. There should be a brief loading time from memory, and according to this video: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Need more info here guys. Please share your experience.

    Edit 2:

    I discovered that, by putting v22 and v25 ISO files side by side, you can see that, with very few exceptions, most of the files have exactly the same size. I'm talking about files where the bulk of the information are stored in, such as ALLDATA.KWI (~1 GB), REGION.KWI (~1.18 GB). Same can be said about EVERY SINGLE FILE IN THE "IDX" FOLDER!!!!!! Exactly the same number of bytes.

    Just as I was ready to declare "fake", I wanted to be sure and calculated hash values on both v22 and v25's ALLDATA.KWI and REGION.KWI files. Turns out the REGION.KWI files are exactly the same, bit for bit, but ALLDATA.KWI are not, even though it appears to be. I also calculated hash on the IDX folders and the result is, the contents are NOT identical, even though they appear to be. The exact nature of the sizes may just be how the files are stored.

    Still keen on hearing your opinions. I'm not convinced that this is fake, at least I'm certain that is is indeed different. Hopefully someone can explain the missing new road (Seventh Street extension, Mascot Extend Seventh Street to Qantas Drive).

    :-) This has been an interesting forum.

    Personally I've been using V25 for a couple of weeks now and can't say if it's any different to V22 BUT I live in metro Perth and haven't driven to many new areas to see any difference. I did drive along the coast on the weekend along a section of reclaimed land, V22 showed I was driving on the sea and V25 still showed the same despite this reclaimed land being completed several years ago.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] shows V25 for $50

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] shows V24 for $295!

    All I can say is it has been interesting testing this disc for evaluation purposes. If I had to purchase a disc for up to date maps, I would probably be inclined to purchase V24 from Navshop rather than the cheaper one from Navigationau as the one from Navshop may actually have more updated maps.

    Hopefully there'll be more versions to test in the coming weeks as there was a looong break from V22 till now. Thanks everyone.
