Re: Navi600 Navi900 maps on SD card for Navteq system, any threads
I'm sorry to spoil the thread, but I spent several hours to solve the problem with SD cards with maps for 600 and 900.
There's no ph... way to get active copy of SD, why? You should get started from the beggining... SDcard means Secure Digital, from Wiki there are different types including those with additional chip in it which is controlled with vehicle's navi system in this case. So: no chip no validation for SD card, sorry.
The only way would be unlock (reprogram) navi in the car, like some of printers that check chip on toner cartidge.
Another solution (I've chosen): Buy an original used SD for Europe from recently crashed car, it's 4x cheaper, but still at the cost of plenty mobile devices with free navi or even branded device with a lifetime update incl. navteq maps (TomTom).
