Need a how-to on updating maps for F700bt

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently bought a car with a AVIC F700bt (UK). I was hoping to update the maps. 


I couldnt really find a definitive guide on how to this. My system has got pioneers 3.021 firmware on it. I believe this is the latest firmware for my system?


There are various TELE ATLAS (TOMTOM) MAPS to get but im unsure what I need to do with the files. Not sure if there is different ways on installing different maps? Also do I need a specific type of map. (Ideally would like to get the latest one)


could some one please be kind enough to help plz. I have tried searching and I have picked up lots of info on modding the system. But thought Id update the maps first then do back up and then try modding.

Thanks Guizmo



Really appreciate your help


Guizmo I was looking at this thread       http://avic411.com/index.php?showtopic=16920


which is abut adding launch buttons. I really like this idea as it will make the pioneer much more user friendly. I was thinking I would backup my pioneer like how you have written in your thread and then I was thinking I would change my data.zip to the data.zip on the thread which has all the mods. But as I was reading through the post it stated that the data.zip was on firmware 2.0. Where as I have the latest firmware which I believe is 3.0 i think? So would this data.zip not be a good idea for me to use.


If so how can I edit my data.zip to get some of the mods in that thread such as quick launch button, cleaned up boxes on navigation screen etc
