    You need latest meta.txt and latest FastActivate:-
    FastActivate

    Create a text file with notepad called ttgo.bif (NOT ttgo.bif.txt) in the root directory of your sd card and inside put these lines
    DeviceName=Carminat TomTom
    DeviceUniqueID=XXXXXXXXXX ( Your Unique Device ID with no spaces)
    ApplicationVersionVersionNumber=8842 (Your Current navcore version, this is the latest official)

    http://download.tomtom.com/sweet/nav...nat_TomTom.cab

    Now go in the folder called "loopdir":
    Delete the file called “ext3_loopback” or “loopback.ex3”.

    0. I recommend to Use a fresh SD But put the sd in the carminat system first and boot up to initialize.

    1. If you are using your old card and not a fresh card Put the original SDcard (Tomtom Carminat) in a card reader. (Make a full backup first with Explorer , Copy & Paste)

    2. Open Tom-Tom Home with your old set up engaged, and take note of your Device ID
    Help > System Information > Device Code > XXXXXXXXXX

    3. Download the last navcore for Tomtom Carminat here:
    http://download.tomtom.com/sweet/nav...nat_TomTom.cab

    4. Extract it with Winrar, then go to "install/DS_1" and copy these two file
    • IA0000700005swlimage0.zip
    • IA0000700005swlimage1.zip
    > To your sdcard root.

    5. Extract these files with winrar (right click > extract here) in the sdcard root (overwrite files if necessary).

    6. Rename the file called "~tsystem" to "ttsystem".

    7. Use FastActivate Premium Edition and patch the PNDnavigator file with it. FastActivate Premium 1.8.8.9

    8. Create a text file with notepad called ttgo.bif (NOT ttgo.bif.txt) in the root directory of your sd card and inside put these lines
    DeviceName=Carminat TomTom
    DeviceUniqueID=XXXXXXXXXX ( Your Unique Device ID with no spaces)
    ApplicationVersionVersionNumber=8842 (Your Current navcore version, this is the latest official)

    9. Add your map folder in your sd-card root, Then use FastActivate to patch map FastActivate Premium 1.8.8.9 (and latest meta.txt).

    Now go in the folder called "loopdir":
    Delete the file called “ext3_loopback” or “loopback.ex3”.

    i was try this :

    1. I put the new Sandisk SDHC 8Gb card into the slot of Carminat navigation in renault scenic 2009
    2. when I turn the car on the sd card write down the folder loopdir
    3.Then I inserted the SD card in my computer, and read ApplicationVersionNumber = 7842 = Navcore
    .
    .
    4.because this is the old navcore 7842, or do I need to upgrade to a newer version of 8842 that will support 890 maps of Europe?
