I have a Tomtom GO520 and a samsung android phone. Almost every time my device goes to sleep or have an update or my phone does that, the connection is lost. Somethimes a have to restart the phone or i have to restart the device to get the connection back.
On the phone i can see that there is no connection with the message that "the device is out of reach" but (and excuse my language) the f*** thing is right next to it. there is no troubleshooting and when i am start to drive a have the connection fixt when i am at my f* destination. Very irritating, i paid money for a device instead of using free stuff google maps, coyote or.... simply because it supposed to be running smooth and have the best routes and traffic updates but i have more problems...

Does anyone know how to fix this or tell me whats happening?
Thanks from a frustrated soul
