Issue with Honda CR-V 2018 JDM

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I recently bought a Honda CR-V 2018 model from Japan (Ex-Masterpiece). Regarding the Honda Gathers Internavi it has few issues. 

1. The main menu or audio menu is not functioning. But by the steering multifunction can change the audio source.  When I digged into it, found out that the map sd card is missing. I thought the importer given one sd card it will be fine.  But it is only for the music rack and the map card slot was hiddden inside a cover. No solution was provided by petc* lan*a as well. The gathers set model is VRU-195CVi. The importer is telling the map card must be bought seperately from the dealer as it is not a factory option blah blah..

2. My question is the japan map is not important to me. It has apple car play where gmaps can be connected. But why the menu doesn’t function..?

Thank you

Some of the Jap sets do not function with out the map SD card, i had a similar issue with my Nissan Leaf few years back.

Card is usually standard with the set it would have been nicked at the port or your dealer. Ask them to get it fixed.

In my case they had to send back the head unit to Japan and get a new card programmed. Just inserting the card (copy) does not work either.

Kindly let me know how to solve this? I have the same problem. My CR-V VRU-195CVi also lost its sd card. Now I am unable to go through menu items. Is there anyone in Sri Lanka who can unlock/hack this audio?
Please let me know?

There are cards for sale advertised in Ik***, whether they are worth the price i do not know

Else you will have to get a card down, your importer may be able to help you

Alternatively you will have the change the head unit, i don't think CRV has any vehicle functions in the main unit

Kush, Thank you for your prompt answer.  

However,  

1.       Please mention what do you mean by ‘cards for sale advertised in Ik***,’ . I could not find anything for “Gathers VRU-195CVi” and sd card sale for it. I only saw update for Australia and us ones?

2.       CRV has many settings in audio display I.e. Walk away auto lock, Android Auto, Vehicle LKAS … and some other settings are there.

Do you know, any local shop, who can provide sd card or hack / unlock this audio set?

 Thanks

I've also run in to the same problem and the importer said they will get back with the maps SD card. If they do so I'll post the files here.

Alternatively are there any aftermarket headunits available in Sri Lanka? (Belsee, Joying?) There are quite a few brands offering these headunits on AliExpress but they cost 50k+ and shipping which might be a pain to clear from customs

There was an advert on Ikmun with a Gather Map SD Card for 10k

I meddled around head unit of my car nszt-y66t (Toyota) during the weekend

It goes to quick setup in the start up does not allow settings requesting for SD card

However Audio (Radio, Media in media SD, DVD/CD) works

Navigation and TV (Digital) any way will not work in SL

Car information too works however did not try changing due to lack of time (takes ages with google translate)

Only issue so far is could not access language menu without the SD card to if language could be changed.

Another things, is the vehicle time tied in with the Gathers headunit? I saw a blogpost or forum post which mentioned that the time is autoupdated through the headunit 3G/4G connection which does not work in SL.

Is this true? Because I didn't find a way to update the time on the vehicle and it seems to be stuck in Japanese time :|

@danss70 Were you able to access the menu and change language and stuff? :D 

It would be too much to ask you to post the content of the SD card eh? :P I'll buy you a full BBQ platter if you do :D

@MADNESSSsss


1. access the menu : Yes 😀
2. change language : not yet 😫 but trying

3. and stuff? : clock, not yet,

4. post the content of the SD : I can do that, but it won't help you, I think.

I tried cloning and imaging , Linux dd clone, but they didn't work. Possible reason is CID security linked software content of SD card. CID writing to sd card is only possible with certain hardware / laptops and sd also different to allow CID changing.  these sd cards are cheep but don't know about the equipment. i can still post it if you want(I'll accept BBQ offer 😛 ) .

I'll still have to explore this audio.

Transfering CID's can be a pain in the a55, even with the correct hardware. :( Oh well, I guess I'll wait till my importer gets it down for me.

 

@danss70 let us know how your journey with Gathers turnout after meddling with it a bit :D
