    Just copy LOOPDIR folder from your old SD to a new one. There is all history inside as far as I know, but I don't have Carminat to test it for sure.

    Hi janch and thank you as usual

    About keeping settings and favourites, copying LOOPDIR folder never worked for me. I always have to re-enter my favourites manually. If someone has a solution, please let us know !

    Thanks,
    -D

    I did a little google search and find this post on another forum:

    Finally Solved!
    The file involved is loopback.ex3, in the SD card folder \loopdir
    (not in the map folder)

    I make a copy of this file, install the map update and all my favourites have disappeared; I put the copied file back into the SD card and my favourites are restored.

    So far I have not noticed any side-effects...
    So this confirms my suggestion so I'm surprised that it didn't worked for you..
    Maybe somebody else will test it and will report back.
