i got it sorted with the help of a member of the forum that was
specific to the actually satnav. He sells the images of satnav sd
cards so he very useful guy to know and it stopped this satnav going
into the bin.
Took a bit of time to work out how to do it in linux cos he was a
windows guy but we got there in the end. In the end had to pay for a
new 8gb sd card(max the satnav would take) but it was a lot cheaper
then a new satnav and the user was very keen to keep to using the
satnav that he been using for about 10 years now.
Another happy customer from the repair cafe
It really going well.
