Hello I live in Denmark, and i just bought a Pioneer avic n3 from canada.

Does anyone know if it is possible for me to install the european nav. software instead of the american/canadian? and if so how?..

I called Pioneer, and the salesperson said it was region locked and that it was now possible, but imo the seems highly unlikely!? I also asked if they could do it for me, but he denied.
Tho i know this is possible somehow!

I´m spanish and I have the same problem. I have a N3 bought in USA and I can´t use european Maps, when I insert the dvd and choose the country it says me: "No data on disk".

Hey. I entered the hidden menu recently on my N3 and saw that there was an option to change the region lock.

To Access the menu (taken from another thread thanks to JAvicN2):

REMOVE DISK

HOLD RESET AND EJECT
RELEASE RESET BUT HOLD EJECT
SCREEN WILL GO BACK IN AND OUT-THEN SAYS PLEASE PRESS THE RESET BUTTON…DON’T
THEN WITH JOY PAD PRESS …
UP,RIGHT,UP,RIGHT,DOWN,RIGHT,DOWN,RIGHT…THEN OK (JOYPAD BUTTON INWARDS)
PASSWORD SCREEN WILL COME ON SCREEN BREIFLY
TEST MODE SCREEN APEARS-CLICK JOYSTICK TO RIGHT ONCE

BUTTONS

OK = JOYPAD INWARD
BACK = JOYPAD TO THE LEFT…NOTE THIS WILL BRING YOU BACK TO PREVIOUS PAGE
BACK = BAND BUTTON ….NOTE THIS WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO THE MAIN MENU

From here I believe the option was on the last screen number 5 or 6. It will say Region Lock.

I have tried this and when I enter the secret menu and when I choose the region code menu, I can't change it. It says region 1 and it seems uneditable.
Can you help me please?
Thanks!!
