If the data set used the same formatting protocol, then yes. But I don't have a view of Nissan's coding logic. So although the underlying data is a simple .csv, depending on how they wrote it, depends on if the system will read it correctly.

For e.g

Car maker 1 codes an address like this: 123 Imlost Drive
X co-ord xx:yy:zz
Y co-ord xx:yy:xx
Supplementary data" Show text "Imlost Drive"

In the actual data set, it may look like this
X=xxxxxxxx
Y=xxxxxxxx
Supp="Imlost Drive"


Car maker 2 codes the same address like this: 123 Imlost Drive
X=xxxxxxxx; Y=xxxxxxxx; Supp="text"

See that semi-colon between the pieces of identical data? That's enough to render the data unreadable by another system.

So I have asked Nissan Australia four (4) times WHAT has changed. This is the reply. Ludicrous.

Are these just “standard” SD cards?
I guess the real question is “will I kill the card putting it in a PC Card reader?”

I want to do some digging/updating if I can access the card.

I deal with some industrial gear that standard looking cards are not actually standard and a PC Card reader will kill them.

Do 2 things mate,

Make a copy when you read the card, then play with a copy of that copy. No issues. And yes play as much as you like.

That’s what I was going to do. More just the hardware question. Don’t want to kill something.
I normally use full byte wise imaging for backups of this sort of thing too.
