just made a journey across Europe, before I left I updated my software and maps and I’ve never had so much trouble with losing satellite connection, and when it was lost it took ages for the connection to be remade.
do you have any advice

    Battery fully charged? Also, don't place the device close to a dashcam if you have one.

    Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ????

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    If possible, for the for the first Satellite fix, go outside with a clear view of the Sky
