Good job everyone getting this issue solved.
Well, speaking only for the Canadian part of North America, our Canadian FCA Customer Care (an oxymoron if there ever was one), are lying, deceitful, fatherless children. Not that I'm bitter or anything. lolThe only thing that still concerns me is why FCA in North America have been so silent on this subject given that they monitor this forum ?
Following up on this, today I received a letter dated the 2nd containing this:Yes, provisionally: October 2020 Map Update!
The chargeback dispute process takes time; my credit card issuer has the multi-page follow-up form I've filled out with the details of the problem, including citing this thread. I'll try to remember to update this thread when they conclude their process.
When you plug in sd card into computer toolbox will tell you if you have the latest version. Never seen anything In Cars display. Toolbox with card inserted search for history. Will tell you latest download on card.Is their any way to check the map version in the car? Or in a pc?
You can go straight to the Feb. 2021 version, you don't need to do them in sequence. No matter what you're starting with for a version, you just need to install whatever the latest version is.Can you skip the Oct 2020 update and just do the Feb 2021 or of does one need to do both?
There's nothing in the onboard navigation system that tells you the version of map content you're running (that I'm aware of). But if you acquired the car before October 2020 and haven't updated your navigation data, then at best, you might be running the content from July of 2019. That was the last update to content issued for North America prior to this past October. Many things can change in over a year and a half, including not just the changes to roads, but also things like speed limits and all the associated information like services available (restaurants, fuel, medical, hotels, etc.). I think it is especially important given how much impact COVID has had on businesses and services.Is their any way to check the map version in the car? Or in a pc?
Mr. Google is having a hard time telling my how to clone an SD card. Even less info on moving to a larger card....clone your nav card before you being doing any updates.
here is a link, go to the backing up section.Mr. Google is having a hard time telling my how to clone an SD card. Even less info on moving to a larger card.
At least not without spending money on special software.
Any links, tips, info, help on the SD clone process would be helpful. (And does really have to be a class 10?)
Thank you, but there is still no specific information on cloning the SD card. I've cloned drives, and optical discs, just not an SD card.here is a link, go to the backing up section.
I am quoting here but the important part is this:
One large advantage to this ability is that you can purchase a faster, larger-capacity Ultra SDHC Class 10 card (8 GB is adequate), and after formatting it FAT 32 and copying the files from your original VIN-locked card onto it, use that card instead – so that, in theory, not only should your Nav boot up quicker, but should future updated map files grow in size, you won’t have to worry about your card conceivably becoming too small. The hardware is said not to be compatible with SDXC though, so don’t try those cards (this may not be the case for 2017 vehicles and newer, but I’ve yet to confirm). You have a greater chance of success of creating a backup copy of your SD card using the command prompt xcopy with switches /E /V /G /H /K (all directories, also empty ones, verify copy, include encrypted and hidden files, do not change file attributes).
after the xcopy, i then put card into the toolbox, and updated it i had issues until i was able to do this.
this is all i got, good luck.
OK, good. Thank you. I was hoping it was just misuse of the word, although I am sure cloning would work....Forget the term clone.
create a folder on your c drive, example c:\maps
insert your sd card so you see it as a drive in my case d:
open command prompt.
use xcopy command to copy card contents to the folder you created.
example... xcopy d:\. c:\maps\ /E /V /G /H /K
insert new card, make sure its fat32.
now run command to copy it back.
example xcopy c:\maps\ . d:\ /E /V /G /H /K
syntax should be close i am unsure exactly.
now i am unsure of steps, but probably need to use the toolbox
have to try things and test in car from here.
