How do I the software and mapping on my AGR520 or AGR700 series sat nav?
Follow the instructions below to update the maps on your Aguri Truck, Motorhome & Caravan or Aguri Car satellite navigation system.
Step 1. Connect your unit to Wi-Fi and Set up a Google Gmail account on your device.
To update the mapping from the Google Play store, you will need to set up and/or enter an account and be connected to an internet enabled Wi-Fi connection. If you have already done this please go directly to Step 2.
From the main menu select ‘Settings’ then scroll down until you see ‘ACCOUNTS’ and press the “Add account” button. From the list displayed, select ‘Google’ and a new window will appear called ‘Add a Google Account’. If you already have a Google Account, select “Existing” and proceed to the next step.
If you do not have a Google Gmail account please go to Google on your PC or Mac and search for ‘How to set up a Google account’ and follow the instructions you will find there. Once you have a Google Gmail account enter them in to your device as described above.
If you are not connected to an internet enabled Wi-Fi connection, the device will now ask you to connect to one. It will switch the Wi-Fi setting on and you will automatically see a list of available Wi-Fi connections in your vicinity. Select the Wi-Fi connection you want to use and enter the password.
Next, enter your Google Gmail account details and complete the set-up as per the instructions displayed on the screen.
Step 2. Update the Aguri Navigation App.
From the main menu, press the ‘Navigate’ button and launch the navigation software as normal. Once the navigation software is open, tap on the centre of the screen to open the navi menu and then press the ‘DEVICE SETTINGS’ button at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next select ‘Manage software’ and then tap on ‘Software version’. A message will be displayed asking ‘Check for software updates’ – Press ‘OK’ and the device will automatically open the Aguri Navigation App in the Google Play store. If an update is available, an ‘Update’ button will be visible. Please press the ‘Update’ button and your device will automatically update the Aguri Navigation App software. Once the update is complete you should be returned to the Main menu.
On the latest Aguri navigation software release version 1.2.119, the contents that were within DEVICE SETTINGS have been moved. The DEVICE SETTINGS button has been removed and the contents have been moved to the main navigation menu itself. To access them simply go to the navi menu and swipe the screen from right to left until they are displayed.
Step 3. Update the mapping.
From the main menu, press the ‘Navigate’ button and launch the navigation software as normal. Once the navigation software is open, tap on the centre of the screen to open the navi menu and then press the ‘DEVICE SETTINGS’ button at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next select ‘Manage software’ and then tap on ‘Map version’. A message will be displayed asking ‘Check for new map?’ – press ‘OK’ to proceed. If an update is available, an Orange information bar will be displayed advising what version of the map is already on your device and what the new version is. Press the orange bar to continue and a message will be displayed asking ‘Start downloading after restart’. Press ‘Restart’ and the device will display the message ‘Checking data server…’ It can take a few minutes for the device to check the data server, but after a short period of time, the device will begin to download and install the latest version of the map.
Please note that it could take between 30 – 60 minutes to update the maps depending on the speed of your internet connection. Please ensure that the device is fully charged and remains connected to power for the duration of this process.
