You MUST order through their Parts deparment. There is a special form they have to use, that is filled out using the code on your Nav screen in the picture you took. I can send you a copy of the form if the Parts Department can not find it.

Thanks you for answering, I followed advice from another user in the forum and called Courtesy Nissan last week. They ordered the card for me.

To anyone with a lost SD card, contact your dealer (or LEAFSpecialist ) with the following data:

Your VIN number.

From the blue screen on your diplay.
SET:XXXXXXXX NAVI-1:XXX
SNO:XXXXXXXX

Note down the numbers as in my photo above.

If the dealer is clueless a friendly forum member or Nissan professional can help you.

At least Courtesy and EverythingNissan can get the cards, surely most dealers but two dealers in NJ had no idea and were quoting complete navi units at $3100, even if i stated ONLY THE CARD please.

I wonder if cloning the existing card is a better idea ? SD cards, cheap. Thoughts ?

Won't work. They're called Secure Digital cards for a reason. You can't make a working copy.

Aha. Thanks for the reply. Makes sense.... Still... Sounds like a challenge to my neighborly UNIX guru.

I really hope Nissan makes a change to prevent this and adds some other anti-theft measures. Hopefully the utility logged a formal complaint w/Nissan corporate on this. I think everyone else who's been victimized should.

Hopefully word eventually gets out to thieves about the copy protection and about the cards being useless on other Leafs (if I'm not mistaken, given the DRM that seems to be employed here.)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Why? Even PGE knew it was their fault for not paying attention and/or disabling the vehicle.

Now at events where we leave our Leafs open, we usually just pull the SD card and throw it in our pocket. At auto shows, we usually have to disconnect the battery anyhow so it's no big deal.

If you have something stolen from your car, it is generally covered under home owners insurance. Of course - your deductible may be higher then the claim value. I learned that the hard way when I had a $4950 bike stolen from my bike rack on my $5000 deductible policy. :cry:

Could one create a 1:1 backup (using dd or any other imaging tool) to keep a backup in case your card gets stolen? I would at least be able to create a new SD card from my backup instead of having to spent a fortune on a piece of plastic.

I'm thinking about a warning sticker over the SD slot in case someone does try to access it.

If the card only works in one car wtf won't they let you make a backup of it? It is not like you can sell it, well you can but it only works in one car. I think this is an illegal practice. You are being denied your fair use.

Sure, but you need the exact same type of SD card to restore that backup to. Good luck finding one.
