How to Backup microSD for Galactio Car GPS?

Postby tks » Mon Oct 24, 2016 10:18 pm

My new car came with Galactio GPS running MFM and SLA maps. I noticed the supplied microSD is a puny "ddlink" brand Class 4 4GB card. As I know microSD cards can fail easily, I want to make a backup just in case.

However, when I copied the contents to a new microSD card, the GPS software does not work. I think the GPS software is licensed for the original card only. Is there a way to backup the card?

Welcome back Bro tks,

Sad to let you know that the navigation software license is tied to the SD card serial number. You can't move it to another SD card.

Cheers!

Yes, it's nice to be back!

Was "away" for some time as I was using Google Maps and Waze, and did not see the need to use MFM maps. But now that my car uses MFM maps, I feel the "need" to update the map.

Yes, I have the same thoughts too to have it backup into another MicroSD card for just in case. However, like moeyhc said, the software licence is tied to the serial number of the SD card. Wonder if the original MicroSD card get corrupted or having faulty issue, do I need to go back to the vendor to purchase another new card? Thks folks! Appreciate your inputs.

If it is under warranty, I am sure they will replace it. If it is out of warranty, I really don't know.
