Sat/Nav Question? was created by Andy2640
Had anyone else managed to put more than the postcode into there SZ5 sat nav yet? For some reason it will only allow the postcode, and never allows me to add a street name?

Is the SD card in the slot at the top?

Hello George,

Just checked... Yes it is.

In short, no. The built in Sat Nav is not the most user friendly.

If I need sat nav I just plug my phone in and use Waze/google/apple as the android auto/apple car play works really well.

Andy, was this problem there before or since the speaker installation? :unsure:

The Dealer loaded my address at pre-delivery. After 5 months the S/N now has a little circle chasing its tail like a puppy. It doesn't find anything to receive. :(

Inbuilt satnav is usually pants, USB cable, Android auto/Apple Carplay and Google maps or Waze is definitely the way to go.

Gadget, I am glad you (and others) have the knowledge to make most of the Jimny systems work for you and your cars.

Those of us without the knowledge have to rely on the system. I just don't see the support people in the system with the right experience and knowledge or having the right answers.

Today I may be faced with the choice of a Service-Reception or a Dentist visit! At least the dentist will give me a needle for the pain! :woohoo:

Edit: I chose the Dentist. He was chuffed when I told him my story and said he would also choose the Dentist! No Pain, so no needle! :)
But I did get a nice email from Suzuki-Aus about some Accessories on back-order, staying patient. ;)

It is COMPLETELY OBVIOUS, so obvious it wasn't even worth mentioning in the "manual" :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Simply enter the country first "United Kingdom"

Then where it says post code type the name of the town or hamlet (If I pick the nearest large town/city it won't find my tidly little street out in the sticks)
Then you can type the street name
Then you can type the number.

(Actually, I googled the other boys who have been saddled with this expensive piece of junk before, it is the same for Lexus, Toyota, Nissan and I believe Audi)

I'm currently working on adding speed cameras, I can add them as POIs alright, I need to wait for some dry weather* to go for a drive to check if I've got the warnings to work properly, and I can't get custom icons to appear from BMPs either, not in 22x22 or 24x24.

More concerning to me is when I wear my polaroids, the display shows what looks like some sort of stress, I predict a failure fairly soon.




The Connect doesn't show those rainbows, quite annoying when driving along.

* it is not going out on a wet road until I have got the dinitrol applied.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

That effect on the Screen is caused be AC interference, usually cleared by Degaussing on a CRT.
On the LED/LCD it may be caused the physical distortion of the screen mount.

That is what I'm thinking, and that it is liable to crack soon.........

I tried pushing & pulling the bezel, and the rainbows don't move, so it must be a mount under the bezel.
