2011 Renault Scenic Carminat stuck in reboot loop
I went out on the car yesterday and the display was normal showing the map moving as I was driving (the unit turns on when the radio is on) with no route active.
About half way through the journey my eye was caught by the screen changing colour. When I looked, it was showing the egg-timer which then went to the Renault boot up screen. This was followed by the egg timer again followed by the boot up screen again. This continues as the car is being driven.
It’s a bit of a pain as my wife uses it to set her Disabled Parking badge time of arrival indicator as the same screen also shows the time when the device is active.
I have seen the post where somebody had issues during updating their system, but my one seems different as when I put the card into my laptop, the TomTom home displays a message saying the card has errors which cannot be repaired by Home.
In Files on the PC itself, it does show the card’s name (eventually) but I cannot access the card to see what’s on it.
I think I may need to get a replacement card.
I don’t know what size the original card is but it is my understanding that it should be an SD card and not an SDHC card.
Also, once i have one, is it just a simple case of downloading the files to the new card?
I’ve seen replies which suggest just formatting the card (which I can’t do as I can’t access it) and downloading the files onto it, formatting the new card (both in FAT and FAT32) and then putting it into the Carminat so it puts two files into the card and then putting it into the pc to download the maps, and also just delete and reinstall the maps (which again, I can’t do)
