If the data set used the same formatting protocol, then yes. But I don't have a view of Nissan's coding logic. So although the underlying data is a simple .csv, depending on how they wrote it, depends on if the system will read it correctly.

For e.g

Car maker 1 codes an address like this: 123 Imlost Drive
X co-ord xx:yy:zz
Y co-ord xx:yy:xx
Supplementary data" Show text "Imlost Drive"

In the actual data set, it may look like this
X=xxxxxxxx
Y=xxxxxxxx
Supp="Imlost Drive"


Car maker 2 codes the same address like this: 123 Imlost Drive
X=xxxxxxxx; Y=xxxxxxxx; Supp="text"

See that semi-colon between the pieces of identical data? That's enough to render the data unreadable by another system.

I have to laugh, so I got the new card, plugged it in and.....yip, EXACTLY the same as the old one. I have asked Nissan ****sville to explain.

So I have asked Nissan Australia four (4) times WHAT has changed. This is the reply. Ludicrous.
