Carminat, Bypassing startup screens

Hi folks, i tried a few searches but i couldnt find anything perhaps my search criteria is wrong?

Anyway heres a long shot...

I have the Carminat system in my laguna 2, thing is every time i put the card in the ignition i have to click OK, then, click something else and them click map or navigation....

Is there a way to bypass having to do all that and have it just display the map please?

Don't think it can be done.

Most likely near impossible to be done.

As with most integrated operating systems, it will be part of the boot sequence of the software and I guess you would need to either be able to get hold of the source code for the Carminat software, de-compile it using proprietary, french (read "effing expensive/impossible to get hold of) software and to recompile it and then reload it (somehow) onto the Carminat computer.

A lot easier to just take 10 seconds to click OK I think

Hope this helps
