Re: T31 Series 3 & 4 Eclipse Head Unit


Got it. I was not extracting the files to the SD card because it said not too but opened the full detailed PDF and it tells you to extract the files to the sd card. Now it is working will let you know how the upgrade goes. emoticon

Re: T31 Series 3 & 4 Eclipse Head Unit


Well finally got the maps updated. No thanks to Nissan. Might end up sending the invoice. US$119 but it was 2012Q2 with 4WD maps. So I think it will be worth it.
Ok for all of you out there who are trying to upgrade but can't.
First you need to make sure you can get online to naviextras with Internet explorer and also sign in to the site. I found that I could not do this on the new laptop, so used the old laptop with Vista. Finally got it to work and was able to purchase the maps. Downloaded to the car with all of the details and yes I do have the new maps. Yippee. Just remember to down load the PDF of the detailed instructions as it has a few more details.
Anyway having problems let me know and I will try to help.
cheers
Chucka

Replacing standard head unit


Good afternoon Jalalski,

Have another technical question for you do you know what mods if any i would have to do to fit a Ti Satellite Navigation System via 5” integrated QVGA colour touch screen display head unit into my 2010 TS esky
 
Or is there a head unit you could recommend which has the built in GPS function and bluetooth for my phone via the steering wheel.

as been quote S650 for one from a TL 2010

Regards Steven King

Hi Steven,

Check THIS for many compatible alternatives which are far better than the factory Eclipse unit and gives you the option to update your GPS maps without paying a fortune for them. Most of them are compatible with steering wheel controls.

Re: T31 Series 3 & 4 Eclipse Head Unit


Hello,
I have just discovered there is a new 2015 update for the "Eclipse ANV726EA" head unit, "Toolbox" and "Sync Tool" via Naviextras.com.
Yes i spent hours reading this thread emoticon
Checked the map version and i have the old 2009 crap, the original owner must have had no idea or didn't care.

I had a spare 8GB SD card and reader so thought i would follow the guide from all who have contributed on this "Update by SD card" method.
I must be doing something wrong but it seems a complex and frustrating process emoticon
I have tried extracting and installing the "Toolbox" on both my PC and the SD card. "Toolbox" opens but gives me limited options and keeps telling me "Device not connected" emoticon

The option of throwing the Eclipse unit in the bin is not an option at present purely due to cash flow and pending spine surgery. I would much rather do an SD card update if possible.
Some help with this would be greatly appreciated and a solution rewarded with ales emoticon
You could also get to see our 2 trained, talking, blue and gold macaws.

Thanks,
Macaw

Scotty, I think you'll find the reason why your update software won't work is because the system only accepts a maximum 2Gb SD card.

I could be wrong in saying that but I'm pretty sure I read it somewhere, becaue I remember searching all over town to find a 2Gb SD card to make it all work.

I've updated my Eclipse unit twice now and each time the process worked just fine. On occasion I have experienced problems getting the software to recognise the "device" but repeated software start/stops eventually overcome this.

I'd love to help you in person but regrettably I live 4000km away in Darwin.

Good luck. Don't give up...I've found the eclipse unit to be remarkably reliable and useful.

Mark

Re:


I think am still using the 2010 maps in mine and am still happy with them. Until such time when our Australian roads and highways will turn into Autobahns, I think I will continue to use the existing loaded maps until I can either find a cracked version or just replace the whole damn unit when it goes bust.

Evening Jalal,
Yes i agree the outdated maps do the job BUT, travel on new roads, go out to Gregory Hills, Oran Park or travel up the highway past Coffs or down through Canberra where it is all new, this outdated map keeps telling you to "return to the highway", at Oran Park it tries to make me go back to the Northern Rd and the screen shows "green" that i am in the middle of what used to be bush when i am on "Peter Brock Drive".
In the city the dam thing told me to go left into a "3 lane one way street" emoticon luckily i hesitated when i saw headlights coming at me in the left lane emoticon

I have even checked into consumer law which only requires parts,updates,etc,etc,etc for 7yrs after manufacture, these units are 2009 models and this year makes them obsolete as far as parts,etc.

Ah well another 6 months i will be in a greatly better position financially so i will probably pull this head unit out put it in a box, excrete on top of it and send the dam thing back to Fujitsu emoticon

On the other hand i will restore my GTR XU1, the legendary Bathurst giant killer emoticon
I much prefer to drive my Torry with no BS computers, EGR, system management, DPF filters, not built by cross eyed, chop stick fed, retards that fantasize about acrobatic flying cars that drive them selves.

My XU1 can be repaired on the side of the road with base knowledge and maybe some fencing wire to get home and IF on the rare occasion i plant the pedal i know she will light up all 4 gears with 11.5" Yokahama tyres on the rear !!!

Don't get me wrong i like Nissans from the early 1976 GT (first Nissan that got me) through the R series 31,32,33,34 nearly as much as my XU1 but all this techno BS is wallet draining and mostly unnecessary in ALL new cars.
Then again i may just be stuck in the caveman era, drive around in my XU1 with my club hangin out the window uggg uggg emoticon

Cheers all, hope ya's get a giggle emoticon

Scotty
