Renault Clio Map Can't Be Used
Up until that point the original Renault SD card had never been taken out of the car, but I assumed something had happened to the map file so I plugged it into my laptop and installed the Tom Tom Home app as prompted. It then had lots of critical updates which I let it do on my laptop and told me my device had some map and other updates available. I thought maybe updating would fix the issue so I accepted the updates (after doing a backup to my PC as prompted) which took forever but I followed the instructions which involved swapping the SD card between the car and my laptop a few times while it did additional updates. After it finished it loaded up in the car and I got the exact same error.
At that point I got a bit fed up with it and ran out of time so left it alone, and started using Google Maps on my phone ever since. Now however, I need to use the car satnav more so need to get this fixed so having another go. I have tried restoring the original software/maps to the SD card from the first backup I made in July and checking the map file is present on the SD card which it seems to be in windows explorer and going to manage my device in Tom Tom Home but still stubbornly get the same error.
Next I have tried deleting the map from the SD card, assuming I could re-download it if it had got corrupted somehow, but then when I click update there is no map option to update any longer so I restored the map from the backup again as that seemed not to be an option.
Bit stuck on what to do next. Can someone advise what I can do to get my original map working again in my car? I'm not bothered which map I use (the original 2012 one or a new one but don't want to pay for an update if it costs as the original maps that it came with still work fine for me).
