If you own a Honda Accord or Inspire with the built in Japanese Internavi System (shown in picture) you may have already seen this green error message, in fact your car might be stuck on it right now.
This error message translates to “Insert System Disc”, Whenever the power is disconnected (flat battery etc) this disc is required to “reboot” the system. Without this disc, the touch screen system is unusable. This means many of the Radio and even Air Conditioning controls (vent’s, fan speed etc) are unable to be used. The system also has many various menus with Fuel Economy meters, Calculator and all sorts.
The system boot disc is built into the Japanese Maps disc. I could not find one of these discs anywhere, I spent countless hours working out a solution which involved creating my own “boot” disc which brings it back to how it came from the factory, enabling you to once again use the touch screen.
See the pictures, it really works! Have sold many of these and feedback has been great on every single one.
To use simply put it in the drive below the navigation unit (usually behind a flap the DVD player that also sometimes has “PC CARD”) and turn your car on, within minutes you’ll be back up and running just as the car came from the factory.
Please Note: Because the system is in Japanese there is no ability for us to have the maps, my disc has no maps, it simply gets the touchscreen working again for all normal car features. Many features will still be in Japanese, although majority of the Radio and A/C Controls are in English.
This disc is suitable for all Honda Accord CL7, CL9, including EURO R and CM1, CM2, and CM3 Accord Wagons that have the pictured Honda Nav Touchscreen. Now also works with the Honda Inspire 2003-2007 models!
Once you’ve used my CD to reboot your Touchscreen, I found this video is a great help with changing the clock’s date and time settings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NQpZjoGxbU
