Hi there. I have a TomTom Start 50/55 Model 4EFOO that keeps rebooting itself at start-up. It get's to the Legal Notice screen when first turning on, but will not allow me to hit the "I Agree" button. 10 seconds later it resets and goes to the TomTom logo, then to the 'PC Connected' Start screen (not connected to PC during this process) and then to the... well man walking away with a bag type icon (sorry can't describe it).. then back to the Legal notice screen.
On the upper right during the Legal Notice screen it has the blue bar that says Welcome to TomTom START.. Now.. when I DO plug it up to the PC while it's running in this furiating loop during the Legal Notice splash screen, it resets, go to the TomTom logo, then instantly recognizes the PC connection..
At such time the TomTom HOME runs a update check on all it's awesome features (which there aren't any but fuel prices and other daily updated stuff) but nothing major like a firmware update.. It started doing this when I updated the TomTom Yesterday (2/25/13), but all it updated was the gas/fuel prices, map updates, and it's mapshare and safety cameras.. nothing major..
I Also like to note I hit the little disconnect button on the bottom right of the TomTom HOME launcher before disconnecting the device from the PC.. I wait till it says it's okay to disconnect it.
I can't seem to find anything particular on this specific model, and it doesn't seem to have a visible way of factory restoring the tomtom which I'd like to do.. It seems to act that it updated something corrupted and just keeps looping. I'd like to factory restore it.. but I don't really do the backup/restore feature on the TTH launcher anyways.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
