My GO 520 is misbehaving.

From the initial switch on it is unpredicted. It doesn't allow the use of the recent addresses and normal address book for some time. The TOM TOM resets/restarts itself randomly. I have always downloaded the maps and other system updates.

    Hi @PCG26

    How much free memory do you have on the device?

    Try a Soft Reset ie turn unit on and when ready hold the On/Off button in for 20 seconds plus until you hear Drumroll sound then let button go. This will restart the unit with its files sorted.

    Are you using Quick search (Default & the best) or the Awful Step by Step search option ???
    Check if the the Step by Step search mode has been selected...
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> System --> Choose a search mode... Select the far superior 'Quick search' option....

    Also Check... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> System --> Information & Privacy... Keep route history

    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
