I have not used my GO 5200 for a few months and thought I would use it for a trip. The battery was flat so I connected to my PC and let it charge. After a few hours I tried to set up a route but although the functions worked ok I could not get it to plan a route. I then decided to Reset the Tom Tom and after setting everything up again it worked ok.
Why did I have to go through all this when I thought that just a recharge would be ok and everything would be as it was before.
Answer please?

    Probably a "drum roll reset" would have been fine -- once it's charged just hold down the power button for 20 or so seconds until the device reboots and you hear a drum roll.
