Start52 slow to operate

Hi, I bought today a start52 from Halfords with European Maps. Ive had 2-3 similar spec tomtoms, 1 with European maps, but this one is really slow to operate, its takes ages to load up when first switching on. I have taken off all the other langauges, Is there no way to switch off countries I dont need maps for, or anything else I can do to speed up the device? Thanks

    Hi @Stevesmith1234

    Welcome to the community!

    Which map do you exactly need? Have you connected the device to MyDrive Connect and checked for any updates?

    I would also recommend that you do a factory reset-

    Main menu- Settings- System- reset device.

    Hi @VikramK
    I already connected to MyDrive , and just tried the reset , but the device still takes 1 minute to go from the initial TomTom logo when you switch on to the point of being able to enter an address which I feel is way to long for modern technology and much slower than my older same -spec device. I really only need a uk map so if there’s a way to switch off / uninstall the other eu maps and this would make the device quicker I’d be happy to do this. Thanks
