It can not be downloaded and burned. Your going to have to find the DVD sorry. And you have the get the color DVD that corresponds with the accord. I would keep searching you'll find one eventually. Good luck finding the euro DVD!

It can be burned and ripped, but the Navi unit won't read it. At least this is what I've heard, I have no tried it my self. My old man just got a new ridgeline with navi, if your desperate I can try and rip it and burn it. But I belive the probelm won't be the ripping or the burning, but the nav unit reading a burned copy. Honda proably used some kind of security simiular to video game consoles.

^ Do you have euro maps on there? Doubt it.

I bet the DVD could be ripped and burned, but I'm sure there are extra steps to it.


I googled it, and sure thing, you can burn them. You need a dual/double layer burner and some Windows expertise, but it's possible.

Well like with an xbox 360 for it to read burned games there has to be a bit of information on the disc that you can not burn at home. I forget the details but that is the gist of it, most other consoles dating back to the dreamcast were similar. With the 360 the DVD drive has to be reflashed with a custom firmware to skip over that check for that data, with other consoles a mod chip replaces the BIOs with a custom BIOs which allows you to read the burned games. I'm sure honda used a similar security measure, it cheaper than not being able to sell their DVDs. So even if I was able to successfully rip it and burn it, the navi unit probably won't read it, unless honda made a big big mistake. It's worth a shot though, I got plenty of DL DVDs and I know what I'm doing in that area.

EDIT: Ahh I see you said it can be done, didn't see that. I'll look into that when I'm done doing something, if it's possible I'll be able to find you the file jockey if it's even available.
