    I left open the top cover so i can see activity (having no indication from the front panel or the display). The CD has been properly loaded and for about 7 minutes it combined rotation moments and pause. Then.... MIRACLE... The Renault logo appeared on the display and then a message that indicate the successful firmware load. after that i reloaded the original map and I back my unit fully functional.

    So a big, big, big thank to hell for support and the amount of useful informations (after i reported them to my dealer, he admit that the Renault tech line would never be so accurate and complete - he learned something new from a customer)

    Now, if useful to [in|s]courage someone to take the update odyssey, my impressions for the new firmware:

    1) graphic is slightly different (little blue borders around radio data in the bottom of the screen and around the phone screen), less yellow and more blue in graphic style;
    2) audio now starts immediately when i switch radio to on, even the display is still black (doesn't wait the Renault logo);
    2) boot is now mooooore long (more time to wait before the map screen appear)
    4) i own a Nokia N70, then the phone works perfectly via bluetooth (as before), then can't appreciate differences in this field.

    Ultimately, given the risk you run, I do not think it's worth upgrading the equipment
    I am very very happy that you have accepted my advice despite it may sounded weird and finally you managed to get your problem sorted your reward is a working sat nav

    btw I agree about (not) updating the firmware on this unit, indeed considerable amount of risk is involved, but there is an old english expression for this, i guess a lot knows this: 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'

    the cbcd v2 update is mostly recommended for those who struggle with bluetooth connectivity issues, other fixes are cosmetic only.

    Again and again restarts. RENAULT logo boots up and then shuts down, but still plays FM radio. Please do software that is no longer active. Thank kozisek.jirka
    I am afraid your flash become corrupted or the main PCB of the headunit is suffering from some malfunction but as a last resort you may try to open the unit and temporarily disconnect the cd/dvd loader from the main board, to isolate the problem. the cdm8 cd loader is causing a lot of $hit and odd problems in these units when it fails....

    I barely understand but abortion of map loading will not cause any irreversible side effects. anyway it sounds like a sudden voltage drop which caused your unit to be rebooted, I guess the engine was not running, was i?

    well the firmware update should resume once you feed the disc to the unit, but if it restarts and always fails in the middle of the update either your disc is broken (unlikely if the firmware update started for first time) or the flash (filesystem) become unrepairably corrupted in the device... which basically means the end of the unit unless you have an other unit like this or at least a working flash content which you can flash into the flash chip.
