Renault blames TT
Carminat - there I've said it - has been working in our Megan for the last a year. The car was a few months old when we bought it from a dealer so naturally it came with warranty.
A week ago the built in Carminat struggled to find a gps so I removed the SD card and went to TomTom Home where I was told there was a new GPS fix. So I started the update procedure. Now there'll be very few of you who won't know what's coming next.
Upon replacing the SD Card back into the car's Sat Nav I was met with 'Can't find maps' all over the display screen.
We have discovered through technical people the original SD Card has - for whatever reason - become damaged (electonically) as now no PC recognises it as a SD Card.
Renault say it's a TomTom issue and TomTom say...well nothing actually.
I've read and understood that the SD Card becomes linked to the vehicle but I can't fathom why an automatic back up folder has been created as it appears to offer no solution to the issue by copying everything from it to the new 8gb card I obtained in hope to resolve the matter. In fact all I've ended up with is another variant of 'You have no maps'.
TomTom haven't responded and Renault say talk to them to get your maps back so I'm at a loss what to do. I'm not convinced this is just a map issue even it I were to buy a new map - which I certainly don't want to as it must be down to TT, it was their update that started all this.
Any advice would be very welcome. It'd be really is annoying if -on top of everything else - I have to stick a TTStart20 in the window as the Carminat reminds me, as I press the ignition, that there's still no maps.
