Angry Toyota micro sd card Help!!!

Hi guys, I need your help or advise. To make long story short I accidentally formatted my Toyota’s micro sd card, and no more navigation. What are my options to get it back some how instead of going to the dealer.
Thanks

I'm not sure of the format of the these cards but if they use standard filesystems and store details as files you should be able to recover the data as long as you've not overwritten it with other files.

Check out Recuva and Recoverit

Download Recuva | Recover deleted files, free!

Free SD Card Recovery Software to Recover Deleted or Lost Files

If this fails and you have a buddy who has the same Nav setup who is willing to let you borrow it for an hour or so I can provide more details on how to create an image of his to restore your chip.

What year is your 4runner? You might need a nav update anyway and you could just buy the most recent nav update micro sd card.

Do you have a Windows (or Linux) computer with an SD card reader? If so I can probably help via a remote control app. No promises that we'll get anything back but I'd be glad to try.

The basic process will be:
Make the SD card read only via the write protect tab (if possible)
Make an image of the current card to a file on your computer.
Use Recuva to try to recover the original files from the image file.
Write the recovered files out to a new SD card of the same size as the Toyota one.

Do you have an older chip that is still good? That would allow me to see what the intact file structure looks like and aid in recovery.


All else fails there's ebay:
New 2018 update Toyota Rav4 4Runner Prius Tundra sd card OEM 86271-35015 | eBay
NEWEST 2014-2019 Toyota 4Runner RAV4 Prius C Navigation Micro SD Card Map Update | eBay

I think that J.A. from top4runners.com is on this forum, If so they used to sell Map update SD cards and might be able to provide more info.

the sd card has an odd format on it so since you did format the card all data is gone.

some have copied these cards and then had the correct format and sell them on ebay .. for like $80..

Toyota uses 2 yr old data on a new vehicle. so on a road I was on the exit numbers were incorrect.. also in North carolina the data on a portion of rt 70 was missing .

Boort, thanks for offering your procedure but its wont work because sd card was formatted in my GOPRO camera so there is no way to recover it. only disk mirroring from another car SD card as you mention before. Ofcourse ebay is an option for replacement but I would rather spend $80 for small mode. But I guess I'll have pay for my stupidity.

Or you can spend $25 on a GPS unit with life time map updates and much better navigation and free yourself from the ripoff that is called Toyota nav.
