VIA 1415 won't work after map installation

After updating the maps on my GPS VIA 1415, the screen is stuck and I can't get past the startup window with the picture of the car traveling fast on the road. My unit is charged and I've tried to restart numerous time. My GPS is not that old. How can I reset it?

    Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ???? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh


    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
