Why does the map display on my Nissan Qashqai say the SD card isn't inserted when it is?

I have a four year old Nissan Qashqai. Recently the map display says the card is not inserted even though it is. Sometimes the problem cures itself and other times the card needs to be taken out and re-inserted. I spoke to my Nissan dealer who says the solution is a new SD card; £170. Are they likely to be right or is the problem more likely to be with the card reader?
Don't know. But what the system might actually mean is that you are on a road that is not in the SD card's mapping and it interprets this as the card not being properly inserted. Tell the dealer if the new card fixes this (and updates your nav), OK. If it doesn't you will hand the card back for a return of your £170.
