Not quite what he is asking...He want's to figure out how to get a 2 for 1 deal without paying for a 2nd card. Your SD is locked to your VIN as is mine after 60 miles. Like you, I copy and paste to 2 additional SD cards (using my computer desktop which takes aprox. 6-7 minutes each) after each Nav update as a back up...using one copy in the SD slot, keeping another in the car and keeping the original Mazda SD in safe storage.I've simply copy-pasted stuff from my original card onto a cheap sandisk 16GB and it works fine.
Thanks for reply if you find anything please share itExactly. It must be locked to a vin first
. Now we're not saying it can't be done cuz there are files that can be changed but that is beyond me. I don't know for sure but assume the after market SD's you see on amazon and eBay fall under this category. Ive seen that discussion elsewhere but everyone seems careful in how they address it for various reasons.
If you have any information can you share it or even send me a pm thankswell, there used to be a way to do that, but after a C&D and threat of a lawsuit most of it vanished from this forum. If I remember correctly it was even included in some very old versions of AIO.
It had something to do with extracting some data from one head unit and replacing the files in the other one.
