    Do you by chance have an AC charger you can connect the device to for a couple of hours? Device can be off.

    Then try again.

    My Via1500 has recently started dropping out of the map screen while driving and reverting to an earlier screen. Requires touching DONE button to bring back the map but only lasts a few seconds. Voice directions are not affected. Any help will be appreciated.

    1. Is the cable tightly connected to both the device and cig outlet? (don't use usb in your car if you have one).
    2. Try a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds.
