Incorrect car speed shown

I have a start 25 and sometimes it shows the cars speed incorrectly.
So, I'm driving say on a motorway, perhaps travelling at 70Mph. The sat nav is working fine, I then slow down to say 50Mph and the sat nav still shows 70Mph, and stays showing 70 for a few minutes and then it shows the correct speed again. Then it seems to work fine for a while, updating the speed as the car changes its speed.
Any ideas why this occurs?

    HI @MrGLWatson

    Try a Soft Reset ie with the unit on and working Hold the ON/OFF button down until you hear the drumroll sound then let the button go.

    If this does not work

    Tap The screen
    Tap Settings
    Tap Reset factory Settings
    I think you can select a reset that does not affect your data etc on the device.

    Be aware that in average speed zones your device will display, in your route bar at the side, your average speed from the start of the zone, not your current speed ;) That is if you have a route set
