As the title says, on occasion, my TomTom XL IQ will hang after it reaches the "This device belongs to..." screen, and when I press [continue], nothing happens. This is the 3rd time it's happened since TomTom updated to the new interface (with the middle 2D/3D button) . I never had that problem with the old interface. I'm not sure if it's related, but I thought I'd mention it.
I can turn the device on and off, but everytime I restart, if it hanged before, it will hang again. The ONLY way that I managed to get rid of that problem is to connect it to my PC and run some updates (new maps, etc...), and that seems to reset whatever problem there is...until next time it happens.
As I don't always have a laptop with me, if this happens while I'm on the road or without a mean to connect it to a PC, MY gps becomes useless. I just hope that it won't fail me when I need it most.
Regardless, it is a bug that needs addressing .
PS: Is there a specfial way to reboot my TomTom (combination of clicks?) when I'm on the road that would completely bypass the loading screen, or reset it in such as way that it doesn't hang again and again and again?
