Re: WANTED - THERMAL TRUCK SPOTTER

If you select cancel yo can come out of the menu without doing anything to the SD card or the internal memory.
If you have computer, you can format the card in it.

Re: Pard nv008

Are you sure the SD card is inserted correctly ?
The top of the card should be flush with the card slot.

Re: Pard nv008

When you select Format SD card, it will only erase any data already on the card, nothing else.
Don't select Format Internal Memory otherwise you will lose any and all zeroing info and start up preferences
