My Go Live 820 device suddenly turned off mid journey today, and will not turn on again. The usb cable I am using is plugged into a cigarette lighter socket via an adapter The same cable and adapter still power up my dash cam ok, so I don't think they are causing the problem. When it happened I noticed that the case of the sat nav seemed quite hot to touch. By the time I got home it had cooled down, so I tried connecting it to my computer via the usb cable, but the case started to warm up again so I unplugged it again. Has anyone else had this problem and been able to cure it?
Many thanks for any comments.
Alan

    Might be a sign the battery is faulty.
