Re: Australian maps in a uconnect 5

...this problem has been aired on a motorhoming forum here, and it appears that these maps simply were/are not available for the U-Connect.

See the posts from Geeco (in Australia) in the following threads:

http://forums.outandaboutlive.co.uk/...-TomTom/39464/

Threads are about a year old, so there is a slight chance the situation may have changed.

If I have loaded the image correctly this is my solution to two issues - no AU maps for current Ducato and an almost impossible to read badly designed speedo. The GPS is a Tom Tom GO 50 with a big screen, lifetime maps of AU & NZ. The unit shows posted speed and actual speed and radar speed cameras. The bracket fits into the CD slot and I made up an adapter from Perspex. The only down side is a little amount of vibration over uneven surfaces, a small price to pay. Who said "you can not kill two birds with one stone", hope this helps. Cheers,Gary

Thanks Dale Youngs thanked for this post

Re: Australian maps in a uconnect 5

Thanks Gary looks like a good fix.
It is a bit sad that both tom tom and fiat are happy to do this to their customers in this day of social media. I will let you know when I ger the fix from either

Cheers Dale
