Tom Tom arrow changes direction

Hi.

I have recently come across this issue when coming to a stop (usually at traffic lights). The sat nav arrow changes direction as it assumes I am going the other direction. My sat nav then redirects me as it thinks I need to go to a uturn somewhere. As soon as i start driving, it realises I am going in the original direction and reroutes itself again.

It is very frustration, especially if I am.unsure of the direction at the roundabout traffic lights.

Any ideas why it is doing this ans how to change it?

Thanks

    Hi
    @Ljeboyo

    Have you tried a Soft/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
