    @Stefan,
    sorry haven't had the option to test either the cloned one with my own car nor the option to try a virgin card.

    Anybody else?

    What about the "divorce" of the sd card. Are there any news?

    Hi alsabo,
    as far as I know there is no virgin card to be used in a Mercedes C-Klass.
    Here was an upload of a virgin card that was only to be used within a CLA-Class (or B-Class and so on; without touchpad).

    So, we are not really able to test this card as it wouldn't work with the C-Class.

    Perhaps there is someone else who downloaded toe files and tried to use it?!
    What about Mercedes Download Manager? Does the cloned card work with the Download Manager?

    Hi Uetswurschd,

    Thanks for the reply. I was looking for a C class and as you mentiones they are not tested.

    Well I uploaded an image of an unused card (for C-Class) with EU maps to MEGA about a year ago.
    I shared it with a couple of individuals which actually never came back to me at all.

    But I am willing to offer this one again for testing but only to people who can actually write the CID to an EVO Plus card.
    It's the image of a 16GB card so a 32GB EVO Plus card would be fine.

    Please contact only via PM if you

    • Have a C-Class Model 205 with the Audio 20 CD and the pre-installation for Garmin® MAP PILOT
    • How to download from Mega
    • how to unzip a multipart zip file
    • how to change the cid of an evoplus card
    • how to write a raw dump onto the new card
    • know how to test it in your car
    • can live with the fact that it might not work or might break something


    For the moment this is only for people that can test it.
    I want to make sure this gets some more testing before it can be shared with everyone.

    I would not recommend to test it if you have a working system as we don't know the side effects yet and to how many cards the car can be married, but this is up to you!
    I take no responsibility if your gps breaks or your car explodes

    Please do NOT contact me if you can't do proper testing (see list) and have all the equipment NOW!

    @Stefan
    I cloned a virgin card and tried the clones in several cars, and it worked.

    Thanks for that update.
    Did you try the cloned cards with the Mercedes download manager?
    Did all/none/one of them work?

    I am asking because I noticed that the download manager checks the GarminDevice.xml .
    I believe it on the first connect with the card it somehow records (within their servers) the combination of VIN / Serial / CID? / Ifix, so it would be interesting to see what happens if this changes to a new VIN.

    I would say it's safe to assume that there are two options to divorce the card

    #1 dump the card before the first use (likely a file copy is good enough) and restore files to be able to use it in another car
    #2 undelete *.unl/.gma and dorp.bin from a married card (this might only work if nothing else has been written to the card, also dorp.bin [which tells the head unit to ask if the car is to be used with that car] seems not to exist on all cards)

    Of course GarminDevice.xml needs to be removed for #2

    For the head unit itself its more complicated. There seems to be some sort of internal database that stores data of the cards that were used with the car.
    Without any MB diagnostic tools we might not be able to decipher this.

    Or maybe, someone can debug the actual executables on the SD as I suggested earlier.
    However, my observation is that there are a lot more 'consumers' than 'researchers' on this thread.

    I guess, you're right :-(

    Ok, the rescue of the GMA and UNL files on the one hand and the dorp.bin on the other hand was successful with testdisk...
    I'd like to try using the cloned/virgin raw dump. But I guess the error will be the same when I tried to clone my first SD with the consequence that navigation wasn't working anymore.
    My dealer will surely not give me a third one ;-)

    So, I think, users with a broken navigation should take the chance to try using your offer!

    Hi, I tried the dump from Adamek, without success :

    1/ Change CID of the SD CARD (I used an old Samsumg Galaxy S3. It didn't work with my current phone)
    2/ Write raw dump into SD CARD
    3/ Insert SD CARD into my car (B-Class from 2015 with Audio CD 20)

    Message 1 : "Activating Navigation, Please wait..." for 5/10 seconds
    Message 2 : Something like "SD CARD is read only" (I can make a screenshot of the exact message tomorrow). I tested the SD CARD into my laptop and it's writable...
