I have been reading this great forum and came to understand that various brands use the Denso touchscreen navigation systems. Saab also had a Denso navi system. I have the been successful using some of Jaguar, Land Rover and BMW navi's, however some of them seem to work OK, others work partially and some of them do not work at all.
Those that work partially display the maps, but it is not possible to enter the adress. There are also some that do not work at all and instead of a map display chaos on the screen.
Does this have anything to do with loading.kwi? If I would replace it from original Saab 2008 disc, would it help?
How do I come to know which other brands work straight away in Saab?
it would be useful if you could post which other maps you manage to run.
I have tried landrover, toyota and jaguar in 9-3 with no succes.
When I replaced the loading KWI and IDX folder I managed to run Toyota e12 map, but addres search did not work.
Please share your experiences.
I've 9-5 so all my experience is with that model only. I know for fact that Land Rover maps work without any problems. You do not need to replace any files. It is important though to carry out upgrade using the loading.kwi that is on Saabs 2008 DVD map.
My experience pretty much so far is:
Landrover Eastern Europe 2009 (464110-7030) works.
Landrover Western Europe 2009-2010 (464110-7560) works.
Jaguar Western Europe 2010 (464110-7440) works partially, the adress search, POI etc. do not work but it displays the maps and it is possible to select the regions.
Volvo RTI MMM2 2010.1 4 DVD set works partially, the adress search, POI etc. do not work but it displays the maps and it is possible to select the regions.
I've tried replacing loading.kwi on the 1st Volvo DVD but it resulted in Denso complaining about read errors. I am not sure whether any other files would have to be replaced to get this working. I know too little yet, so any help here would be appreciated.
One question, you mentioned that you replaced loading.kwi with the one from oryginal saab 2008 disc.
Was it size 73 586 688?
I am trying to make working disc for saab 9-3, but I can't succeed.
The problem in my opinion is that 9-3 DVD I have do not have loading KWI at all.
