I just replaced the original battery on my 2015 GT86. All good except when I restarted the car, the reverse camera and radio weren't working (neither was the gps maps but that's never worked). The dash display says I need an sd card (which I've never had). All other functions appear to be working.

Other forums have said Toyota want $400 and I can't understand how the radio/camera are affected and I don't care about gps maps. Do I just have to swallow the $400 Toyota charge?

What should I do? Are after-market sd cards viable?

What do gps maps, reverse camera and radio have to do with sd card?

Appreciate your advice.

The SD card contains all the GPS data & I'm guessing the unit goes looking for it immediately when it's booted up & chucks a wobbly is it's not there. I'll try my car tonight without it & see what it does & report back.

It might be cheaper to get another unit WITH the SD card. I'd also call several Toyota dealers & ask for their best price as it's likely to vary.

Last night I pulled the SD card out of the HU & switched on the power to it & it worked fine whilst displaying the message about the missing SD card & its serial #. What I didn't try was disconnecting the battery as I didn't want to loose fuel trims etc. Suspect it would still work fine after you sort the security PIN startup.
