When I turn on my Rider 400, the background screen of the world map appears with the options for quick settings, zoom in/out, and Menu. Then the screen goes black, the those options appear without the background, then black. Occasionally it almost brings up a map. The triangle appears, but no location data, then black screen, Repeat. Holding down the power button to reset doesn't work. I hear the drums, and see the status bar loading, but then it goes back to the listed problem.

unfortunately, I've just stated a trip and can't connect to a computer, not that I could get that to work anyway because the myconnect program doesn't work on my Mac. It starts to load, then the system says that it's not responding.

    This is exactly what is happening to my Rider 40 after a lay off over the winter, I started my bike and pushed the unit onto the mount. It has behaved in exactly the same way as George Fox explained. Nothing wrong with it last Autumn.
    I have reset (doing the whole press 1-2-3 quickly when the black and white writing comes up on restart and downloaded all upgrades , everything has downloaded but still no map appears over the background world view. It's like it is constantly rebooting but unable to 'find' anything.
