As I understand it this is the situatuion...

Carminat is the name given to Renault's range of sat nav equipment - it is not a supplier.

The Full Colour version of the system supplied between 2000 and 2005 was based on a Philips Carin system.

Philips sold the design rights to Carin to VDO/Siemens (do know when).

If you look at the rating label on the equipment then you find a Philips Carin number (22SY...), a VDO number and a Renault number (8200...)

Currently in Eeeps's garage:
2011 Clio III dCi 88 Dynamique and 2016 CitroŽn Grand C4 Picasso Exclusive+ EAT6 2.0 BlueHDi
