Hi Guys,

I am new to this forum.

I just bought a GW1800 2012 model late last year and my location is in Malaysia, SE Asia, between Thailand and Singapore. The GW already comes with a North America map.

As I was told that the Honda GW uses a Garmin system although I am not sure which and what model, I went to a local distributor and bought the latest update of SE Asia maps.

When I went to replace it, an Error message was displayed. Am I doing the right thing?

I like to sort this out as I have a long trip to Phuket, Thailand in the first week of April for the Phuket Bike Festival, the biggest show in SE Asia.

Thanks in advance!

Razlan. I'm going to stretch the forum rules here a bit in an effort to expedite a possible answer to your question. I'm providing a link to a web site that has a 2012 specific discussion group. No guarantees they can help, but these new riders are dealing with the currant quirks and changes on the 2012 model. You will have to register. Here is the direct link to that sub forum:http://****************************...*********************************************

BTW Razlan, European maps won't load into the N/A system, I wouldn't be surprised if the Aisian maps won't either, unless your bike was manufactured for Asia:(

It's possible that a Euro version can be updated with the Aisian maps, but North American models will not (according to my Honda Canada techs anyway)
