SOURCE: Not seeming to read SD map Data Card anymore

I have seen this before, if you turn off the unit while its saving data such as your last position or your last destination, especially if you shut it down while its still navigating. the card data can get corrupted. the only way to fix this is to reload the map data. Fine Digital is out of business so I created a DVD that has the last issue of map data and firmware for these units. you can find this dvd on ebay by searching for finedrive dvd. its way cheaper than what fine digital used to sell upgrade dvds for ( $150)

SOURCE: fatal application error

this is a common problem, its caused by corrupt data on the SD card. it happens when the unit is powered down while its saving data. to avoid it you want to shut down using the menu or exit navigation before shutting down.

now, you have 3 options:

Option one: Visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see

Option two: The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. or C&C also offers a repair service for about $150.

Option 3 Because Fine Digtal closed their doors and left us all stranged, I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only. to find it, search ebay for finedrive dvd...

I recently purchased a used car with parrot v5.11c system installed. But the GPS NAVIGATION SD CARD is missing. How can I get its navigation software?

usually software is inside the chip. On SD there're maps: you'd have to subscribe/buy a map subscription.

The lock sign is stuck on the screen of our explorer 1 and the navigation feature wont work. radio shack said it needed a seperate card to operate. is this true or is there something else?

After resetting the unit 30-30 (Press the Reset button with the Power on for 30 seconds and keeping the button pressed Turn the Power OFF for 30 seconds) with the mapping SD card out of the system, it should then take the information from the SD card correctly. Recommend using updateable iGO or AMIGO program in the unit.. Works Great..

Plenio GPS 3000

Plenio Is Litttle Picky On What SD-Chip To Use, I Just Upgraded Mine To 2GB SD-Memory
Chip Purchased From Walmart, Mgr Name Is a PNY, Black and Gold Display Case, also
Say's OPTIMA SD Ultra High Speed, Mgr Bar Code# P-SD2GB-FS [On Back Of Display Case]

During My Upgrading to 2GB Chip, Using Plenio-OEM CD," Navigation Map Data Base" DVD-ROM
Version 4.0. Had same problem,
Using Plenio Folder on PC " C:/Plenio/V-Up Pro 3000/VUPro3000.exe, checked box, SYSTEM UPGRADE, Selected SD Memory Drive, [My PC Was F:/], then software should detect SD-Chip
and Display Free memory Size, If So, Then Select Next, Should Take Aprox 20 minutes to Complete
Installing Plenio Software From Your PC to SD Memory Chip.
I'am Sure That IS How It Went For You, Mine Did Not Work For Navigation Either, Everything Else Was OK.
Take Your 1GB Chip And Copy To Your Hard Drive, ie; C:/Plenio/OEM_Plenio_1GB_SD
[Good To Always Have A OEM Backup]

From Windows Explorer Locate This Folder Name On The 1GB SD Chip Directory: MobileNavigator.
In This Folder, Locate File: Device.cfg & MobileNavigator.exe & rdat [No File Extension Displayed]
1] Copy These File's To Same Folder On Your 2GB SD Chip.
Your System Now Has Knowen Operating System Installed and should work like before,
might want to recheck your personal setting's.

I also noted using Plenio Software, I could not Check-Box "OS Upgrade" I think this is why
It Did Not Work. Still have to ask Plenio-Tech About This.

I also Noted CD I have Installed Larger Map File Size Than The Preloaded 1GB-Chip Has On it.

CD Ver 4.01 Installed this File; iusa_180mb_en_cg.cdt 184,145KB
Also Came Up Somewhere With Plenio a: iusa_50mb_en_cg.cdt 48,258KB

Navigation on my Maxx digital explorer 1 has frozzen up.

I managed to fix my parents one by removing the memory card and blowing on the contacts then re-inserting the card I guess somehow the card must have dislodged and the map files could not be loaded this should work for you as the system needs the maps files in order to operate the navagation mode...

Hope this helps
