I tried to find an answer to this but it's hard since its a single thread with numerous posts. I just bought a 2018 Nissan Leaf (UK spec, N-Connecta). Very happy with it but wondered about getting the GPS to work for NZ. I was surprised that even with Apple CarPlay it still thought it was in the UK. Funnily enough while connected even my iPhone insists it's in the UK!
I've seen Nissan Leaf 2018's being sold saying they have working NZ GPS, and one even had a photo of it working with Apple Maps in NZ. Anyone have advice for this please? Do I need to replace any hardware or can it be done with a software update? Can I even do it on the SD card supplied or does it need to go to a Nissan Dealership?

Unfortunately he isn’t replying. Does anyone know what would be required to get GPS working for that UK import? I’m happy to only use gps through CarPlay but even that doesn’t work as it always uses the gps from the car. All I want to know is whether I need a hardware change, something for the sd card, or something else. I know it can be done because I’ve seen this model sold with working Apple Maps through CarPlay.
Wondered if it might be a case of disconnecting the gps from it and maybe it would force it to use the phone gps instead. I’m worried about doing that though because in this model to get at it means dismantling a lot of the interior and I don’t want to damage anything. This is a brand new car.
