Does your old car still work?

Was the card ordered directly from Renault or another source?

Yeah the old card still works.
The card came directly from Renault in the post after I requested an update.
That's good, so you know your cart slot is still working. Wouldn't be surprised if Renault have sent you a branded card but forgot to put the map files onto it. There are ways to dig into the content on the card but its probably easier to just report to Renault the card is faulty and get them to send a new one.

I take it I could just use the card they sent and use the pc software to download the latest maps onto it again ?
The card is 16gb.
Presumably you purchased the latest maps? In which case it should be pre-installed. If you use the website/rlink software you'd be charged again.

They sent me the card free of charge, it's version 10.85.
In that case its probably got no map. Stick it in your PC, fire up Rlink toolbox and the website and it should allow you to pull down your previous "owned" version for free.

I still have the old card with the previous version though.
I presume you went for the new card because its got more capacity than the OEM 4gb one? As the guy that hacked Rlink and made the process for cloning cards first I'd say its only worth getting a new card if your getting new maps (that won't fit) but if you stick the new card in your car, let it tie itself to the car, then stick it in PC and use Rlink toolbox to restore your previous backup you should be fine.
