Customer Question

JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: i dont have a map dvd
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: but my radio keeps saying insert map dvd after the battery was replaced
JA: Have you checked the fuses?
Customer: the fuses are fine
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: nothing so far
JA: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?
Customer: thats all for now
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

OK, have you ejected the MAP DVD and checked to see if it is clean? It can be ejected from the same screen as the CD's. Just press the up arrows on the bottom of the screen.

i dont have tbe map dvd
is there a way to bypass that
Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

I see. Unfortunately, none of the radio functions will work without that DVD as it is part of the software. For the unit to function, you will need a MAP DVD.

do you have an idea how much it costs to get one of those
Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

I will find out for you this morning and get back to you.
