Update map for Kenwood DNX715WBTMS

#1 Post by willhuntg » Tue Apr 03, 2018 10:29 pm

Hi. Firstly, I apologize that although I've read most of the posting, I still don't get it.
1. Do I need to have an unlock code to run MSM maps?
2. What is generally the problem when I hit the message "Map data not available" when trying to search using address

Was trying to update the map in my Kenwood DNX715WBTMS. It's an OEM model, not listed in Kenwood's site.

Cheers.

The application can't locate the map (map file not found in the pre-defined folder)

Hi,

sorry for the late reply.

I am using DNX9170S. Did you manage to update your maps?
It is very simple.
Launch the executable file.
on your Kenwood Garmin mSD card. rename original map to say originalgmapsupp
C&P the extracted file named gmapsupp from msm download into the same folder. you are good to go.
i've also copied the InstaSearch file into the same folder too.

Let me know if you have any issue?
