  • Final reply from "Renault (dis)Connected Services" "killed" me: >>> With this information I can confirm that your R-link navigation device requires an encrypted card, which means that this card can only be used in your vehicle (wrong assumption). You mentioned you had two SD cards, one of which was purchased from Ebay. Can…
  • Well, if they can live without that half of employees, then must be that they are firing "idle people". Still, must confess, that Here maps, being free, are way better and precise that maps in my car. ;) But that might be true only for maps of Latvia. Nevertheless I iwish Tomtom to get the best out of this deal and get…
  • EthoZ, I am sure that Here, acquiring Tomtom cannot do any harm to it. It happens every day. It is more like companies merging and gaining even more potential. We will be winners too, because the prices will be optimised even more. About Renault getting Android Auto or whatever they plan - I am 100% sure they will find a…
  • Carminat, I am not planning to use that pirated map. In fact, I have just posted it back to the seller and received my refund. I do have that 910 map, which is awful, but it still works and there is no picture "No map found" in my screen.
  • In the meantime, I have created my first petition: https://www.change.org/p/renault-force-renault-to-support-r-link-properly-or-let-tomtom-support-it Pass it on to anyone that has R-Link and would like to support this cause.
  • Just got of the phone with local Renault support:* They asked me to send pictures of the card in exchange for statement of counterfeit product. So 30€ not lost yet - offered seller to refund willingly. * Before me, noone had updated maps in the due time. I am second owner for the car that was actually kept as a spare car.…
  • Thanks! Will try that. The card from Ebay came - guess, what - it is counterfeit as I suspected. And I thought that counterfeit items are past in Ebay. Worst of all - it was posted from my country - feel ashamed.
  • Got as much as 1 step further:* Formated and prepared sd card in Rlink Explorer * Inserted card in my Rlink. * Drove for half hour * Ejected and inserted card in computer * Now, it shows under "Manage my products, but I have to click "Next" on the bottom. The worst part is that under my current card management, I see map…
  • Thank you for heads-up! I did insert an empty card in my system a couple times, but sadly it does not write anything. Also, tried preparing it in "R-link Explorer" but still no go. I will try a bit later. Also, managed to get 10.05 maps from Ebay for about 30€ with the card which seems ok. Just no clue how is my system…
  • You should pair the sd card in TomTom Home with user account on TomTom (your e-mail) that you bought this map. After that, when you open TomTom Home, you will see that map among avalable updates. As easy as that.
  • It depends on navigation system version, but you can get a new sd card (4Gb size) and put it in the car navigation, and after a while, you will get a message that no maps found on the card. Then you can plug the card in your computer, install and run TomTom Home and register account, tie the navigation to that accound and…
  • Your current maps are "tied" to SD card (you can confirm by finding .mct files in map folder. If I remember right, after map upgrade, you are automatically converted to device "tie" with .dct file. What you can do is - format that new card (but make sure your Laguna supports 16Gb - I have suspicion that Laguna supports up…
  • Maps are updated by Renaults wish and there is not much we can do about it. Live services are costing a lot, because Renault has to pay for sim card data usage, if I am not mistaken. Your best bet is phone with Android Auto and hope that Tomtom takes support of R-link but that is not really possible. IMHO, R-Link…
  • If you are still having that same problem, maybe you can "recreate" this card. Get a good SD card (they are so cheap today) format it and put in your cars SD card slot. Start the navigation system as usual and give it a couple minutes - you wil be greeted with message that no maps are found. Then use menu to safely eject…
  • Sadly, R-Link support is in the hands of Renault and they do not seem stimulated to do everything to make you feel good. I feel like opening a petition on change.org to force Renault to hand over support of R-link systems to TomTom. At least R-Link 2 has Android Auto/ Apple Carplay feature, where you can use latest maps on…
  • After having upgraded many of my friends maps on Carminat Live systems for a good price and with ease, I bought 2014 Laguna with R-Link and I was so wrong in my choice. Maps on my car are old - Europe-910.4962 - I guess that previous owner did not bother to use free updates when they were available. Second thing is that…
