So far, Toyota Malaysia have not provided any map update and there's no news from them on when a new map will be available. Toyota Malaysia has been ignoring this. I've contacted Toyota Japan and only now they are looking into this matter. Basically the DVD-AVN in my car is just a white elephant.

I've tried renaming the .img to .dat but it wouldn't work.

There's a microSD slot on the right of the HU when you tilt it up. You'll need to unscrew the cover.

Toyota Malaysia is cheating us with this sub-standard HU. I would prefer the older Panasonic unit anytime. Really disappointed with how Toyota Malaysia treats their customer.

I haven't try to take the SD card out yet, never know there is SD Card inside... :-k Btw, how you take out the SD card? Need to unscrew something? Just take out the SD Card without turn off the car/player?

I have been seeing the same old sh*t since I got my car.
Neither MFM or MSM (pls pardon the inclusion as one member here suggesting contacting them) forum has been helpful.
Bought the car Mar 2015 and until now still no map update and I have given up trying to update on my own as on my previous Toyota-Panasonic-Garmin.

Still cheaper in Malaysia, here in Singapore they charged S$177 for the updated SD card. Anyone have any link that I can have a free map update on my Toyota Wish Panasonic DVD headset ?
