Downloading available updates through Naviextras Toolbox

The available updates that you have not yet installed on your device can be found in the Device menu in Naviextras Toolbox. You can reach this menu by clicking Update' on the menu bar on the left side of the window.

 

If you have any available updates, they are displayed in a list. You can see the following types of contents here:

          ·       Items that you have purchased but not yet installed

          ·       Free updates and extras that you added to the installation queue

          ·       Special free updates that are normally paid updates, but have been provided by your manufacturer or the site operator free of charge.

 

For a simple installation, follow the steps below:

     1.     By default, all items belonging to all regions are selected for installation. Review the table and uncheck the checkbox in front of the item that you do not want to install.

     2.     Click Install at the bottom of the screen to start the installation process.

     3.     After clicking on Install, you are prompted to make a backup.

NOTE: We strongly recommend to proceed with a backup before downloading and installing updates. You may decide to skip backup at your own risk.

     4.     After creating a backup, Naviextras Toolbox starts downloading and installing the selected updates. A double status bar shows the progress: the one on top shows the total ratio of the job already done, and the one at the bottom shows progress with the current file. Wait until you receive a message that the operation is completed.

Transferring downloaded content to the navigation system

After downloading the updates to your USB memory stick, you can transfer them to Pioneer Navigation System. To do this, follow the steps below:

NOTE: During the transfer process, do NOT switch off the vehicles ignition, otherwise you may need to start the process again.

     2.     From the Navigation menu, go to Settings and start the Synctool.

Update'

     3.     The system asks you to confirm that you want to update the map content of the navigation system. Tap Yes.

NOTE: If the new content seems unavailable during navigation, repeat the installation process.
