Renault Carminat stuck in reboot loop
I've searched the forum and it seems this is a common problem with Carminat. I've tried the official TomTom guidance of deleting the loopdir folder, initialising the card in the vehicle and trying again with TomTom home (in fact I've done this three times). I've also tried formatting a spare card and initialising it in the nav unit, but this doesn't seem to work either - the Carminat still keeps looping and the card isn't recognised by TT home.
I've scoured these forums and it seems that for some people, deleting the loopdir folder works a treat. However, I've drawn a blank as to what to do next when the basic troubleshooting steps don't work - the only advice I've come across was to buy a replacement windscreen mount unit and forget the Carminat. I don't really see that as an option, as the Carminat screen also provides the interface for the vehicles radio, so it's impossible to use anything other than the basic radio controls without it working.
