We are constantly faced with numerous misunderstanding issues with Middle East customers related to Toyota and Lexus vehicles imported from the United States, and the question is whether it's possible to change maps to the Middle East.
Well, we can definitely say that this is the one of the most complicated and pressing questions nowadays.
Unfortunately, today there are no
official easy solutions to change navigation maps from the United States to the Middle East. Toyota and Lexus cars, especially for the US market, have a rather complex and secure system that doesn't support changing the map region.
The same is for other regions as well. This operation can only be performed by replacing the hardware and must be carried out by qualified specialists under service conditions. Moreover, this procedure is an unauthorized intervention and will void your manufacturer's warranty.

It is very unfortunate that a respectable company such as TOYOTA have such answer. Encouraging monopoly via alliance with dealerships.
#boycut_Toyota is a viable social media alternative.
Thanks for your opinion. Though we work with some of their dealers, we have nothing to do with Toyota itself, ToyotaMAPS Online is just a third party service provider. Toyota is definitely not the only manufacturer who doesn’t want to develop any official solutions for converting maps from one region to another, especially when they have presence in most of the world. Anyway, we can’t influence these decisions. This situation covers not only the Middle East market, but all other regions as well.
