I've pulled this from the Lambo-power forum. There is a UK owner there with an '06 Gallardo who buggered up his RNS-E. He originally had a 2005 Lamborghini map DVD. He then borrowed a 2006 DVD from a new RS4 to update his software. When he did this...
Then, later...Unfortunately, I tried this this morning and, after the unit tried to reboot twice, a message appeared on the screen saying "Insert software CD". ?.
Bugger!. So I press the eject and insert the original Lambo DVD. Screen motors up, message is still "Insert software CD". So I remove and re-insert Lambo DVD a couple of times. Screen motors up, message still the same.
So I switch the system on and off a couple of times, message stays the same. I leave it switched off for 20 minutes and now it won't even switch back on. Screen won't motor down, nothing! Needless to say during the whole episode nothing else on the unit would function either. Aaargh!!
Finally...It was an Audi one, out of an RS4, so 2006 DVD. Original Lambo DVD was '05.
When it was first put in, the screen showed a load-up bar and the message "updating satnav information" or something similar.
So obviously, I thought everything was fine. Only when the "insert software CD" massage appearred did I realise that, in fact, all was not fine. Actually, where ever 'fine' was, my SatNAv was clearly at a point furthest away from it! (not lost my sense of humour, then!
Keeping in mind these are all Euro DVDs, does anyone have any ideas here, even if just a little hint, that may help this guy out?To give you an update. If the fuse for the SatNav is pulled and re-inserted, the next time the ignition is switched on it is possible to power up the SatNav, though everything is still dead (radio, mp3, TV, you name it).
The screen just displays the "insert software disc" that I mentioned earlier and when you switch the ignition off and on again the system doesn't power up again until the fuse is pulled and re-inserted.
The novelty of being the first Gallardo owner in the world to apparently invect his SatNAv with a virus is wearing off, fast!
I take the screen message as a good sign ,as this suggests that the system, though badly confused, has got down to a level that is recoverable (?) from. i.e. it's probably behaving the way they do immediately after manufacture but prior to install.
We shall see. Waiting for a phone call from "my guys".
