Using my VIA 135 yesterday in car, OK for 30 mins, then it gave a message about overheating ... and shut down. Wouldn't restart. Left it overnight to cool, wont start to day for more than a few seconds.. just shuts down. Anybody got any ideas?

    Hi
    You van try to charge the device (possibly with a smartphone charger) for 2hours.
    Then hold the on Button about 40seconds and hop that you can hear the Drumsound.

    Cross my fingers that the device found back to live ;)

    Thanks for taking an interest. Tried charging, I hear the drum sound when I hold button, then screen goes blank after a few seconds. 'Not connected' comes up on my MyDrive Connect screen. I strongly suspect that the chargeable battery has packed up. Can this be replaced do you know?
