    help Rider2 - help needed to fix corrupt original SD card?

    Hi - On my Rider2 the original Tom Tom SD card has corrupted (graphics on load screen show SD card with red cross). Unsupported by TomTom, but does anyone know how I can resurrect it? Many thanks, Oliver

    Did you try removing it and testing it on a PC to see if it is readable?
    If readable then get a blank SD card of the correct size and copy over the contents to a folder on your PC and then insert the new SD card into the PC.
    Then copy the info you saverd to your PC to the new SD card.
    Then test to see if it works.

    What ever you do do not format the problem SD card.
    The best you can do is run scandisk on it to see if it can correct the problems.

    When you buy a new memory card, you don't need to format the card before installing your maps. New memory cards are formatted to FAT32, which is the correct format for use with navigation devices.

    Hi - Thanks for your help. Afraid, it didn't work though. The TomTom SD Card is readable (I am using a Mac and I can see it on Finder). I copied it over to the new 4GB SD card and tried that. Same issue, graphic of red cross through SD card. I wonder if the files within have got corrupted somehow. Is there a download of what the default Rider2 SD card should contain that I could copy over?

    Not sure how to proceed to correct it. Any thoughts? Thanks, Oliver

    Welcome to the Forum.
    First of all, the card itself may be defective. There is no help here. The contents on it can very well be damaged.
    Then, iOS and MAC are not suitable for such manipulations.

    If there is something else on the card besides the maps, you will have to see if another owner of same device is present to share the content here.
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.

    Hi there - the SD Card is my TT Rider 2 is kaput (maybe after I tried to use it in a Renault hire car with Carminat). Does anyone have the content from a TT Rider2 SD card that I can copy across? Thanks Oliver

    From TomTom

    I would like to inform that TomTom RIDER 2nd Edition comes with the pre-installed map on SD card. As the maps are pre-installed on the SD card they are linked to the original SD card and TomTom device.

    If you try to copy the backup of an old SD card to your new SD card it will not work on the device because each pre-installed map on SD card is link with a certificate file from the SD card and TomTom device.

    The red X means the maps are not unlocked or the SQL files are screwed up.
    Did you try to add newer maps to the SD card???

    What you could do is use a blank SD card or the original and connect with TomTOM Home and see if you can download the system again.


    Is this your TomTom or did you by a used one???

    Plus your Rider 2 is at End of Life so getting any maps or system updates is questionable.

    Don't panic there is nothing serious going on at all.
    Buy a new SD card, depending on which boot loader you are allowed to use, with a boot loader equal to or lower than 5.5020 an SDHC no larger than 2GB, with a boot loader larger than or equal to 5.5025 SDHC up to 32GB.

    But it can also just be that something is wrong with your navcore, if it is still the old navcore, you must first provide it with a patch before you can use another map.
    I guess the last thing happened to you.

    In the most hopeless case, send me your ttgo.bif file, then I create a file for you that should work immediately, all you have to do is update that bootloader to version 5.5128, the same one I have been using for years. Rider v2 and can process all maps of the world.

    Be careful with that update, make sure the battery is fully charged, just to be sure, connect the Rider to the power supply, pick up that loader 5.5128 somewhere, if you can't find it, I will send you a link.
    Format the new card fat32, put it in the Rider v2, reset and restart the device, a new ttgo.bif file will be written but you will not get further at that time.
    Now take the SDHC card out and copy the loader 5.5128 on it, reset the rider again, insert the card and start.

    Now very briefly a text will appear on your screen telling you that something is being installed, it will be gone before you know it and your Rider v2 will also be unusable if the power goes out at that moment, so again pay attention because that is the biggest mistake that you can make.

    Tell me which map or maps you want on it, that's no problem.

    Here somewhere my private email address must be roaming around I think, if the extension is xs4all.nl then it is the wrong one, in that case a PM is the most useful.

    Good luck.

    After checking my Rider v2 I discover that for some reason, probably because of the WNRO the bootloader is now 5.5279 which has not brought any special benefits for me, at least I have not noticed any of it.
    The story that has been circulating for a while that a boot loader can only go to a higher version and not back, is not based on the truth, it is indeed possible to go back to a lower version in 2 steps, there is requires a special boot loader, a few examples:
    Bootloader v0.0001 Reset any higher Bootloader
    Bootloader v1.0100 Restore Faulty Flash Update

    Even a flash error must be fixable with the last bootloader, I don't have that experience myself, but someone was able to fix it, not entirely sure how it went wrong

    I did, however, provide the GPS chip with a flash update and that has certainly yielded the necessary benefits, no more minutes waiting for a signal.
