TomTom Start 25 Satnav issue?

Tom Tom Start 25 , had this unit for a while has been working flawlessly up until one day it decided randomly that it wants to home during a planed journey elsewhere, it then cycles through a few screens until I hit the back button then it continues as it should for a while, but it keeps giving voice commands OK to the planned destination as well when this happens, I wonder if a dodgy update may have thrown it out at some point, often it works OK as well for some time?

I have fully updated it several times (it has lifetime European maps) just recently I found out how to re-set & reload the core operating system, but after testing it did this again, anyone heard of this problem/solution?

    Is there any other way of contacting tom tom support directly, phone, email, online chat, as I can't seem to find it ?

    Spoke to support line, They just got me to update, factory reset but problem still persists with no resolution, it seems a rouge update in the past may have caused this but new updates haven't rectified it yet, unless anyone has any further idea's as to what's up?

    That should have cured it, but I will ask around

    Hi
    @Bri212

    Use a stiff piece of thin card to clean between the edge of the screen and the bezel
    Gunge in the gap will give ghost menu entries
    Also have you fitted a Screen protector ??? a cheap or poor fitted Screen protector can give ghost touch screen errors

    Yeah I heard that one before about the card clean, did kind of give it a go, maybe I should try it again, no screen protector on the unit
