recent map update after which my GO6200 will not go to sleep, reboots evey time the car is started, used to work fine. Reset made no difference. 11 gb or internal memory space.

    Welcome to the site....
    The Previous NAV4 and Latest (NAV5 Wi-Fi) devices are quite power hungry....
    See... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1726227/#Comment_1726227

    What is the charge state of the battery ???
    If the battery charge state is borderline flat, the device will turn off instead of going to sleep....

    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) button... On the Menu Screen top right is a battery status Icon
    Charging... Displays when Connected to a Power supply
    Full Charge... Displays when Connected or Not Connected Power supply
    Half Charge... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    Low Battery... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    One of the worst things you can do to a Lithium battery is to run it flat so at a certain percentage of discharge (Unspecified)... The device will go into 'Power Saving Mode' the screen will dull, and the device will eventually turn itself off (Not Sleep)

    There is a Battery Status display available on the devices Status Screen
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound Continue to hold the on/off button until the Black & White Status screen is shown.....

    If you are worrying about the device charging, you might consider one of these gadgets

    Simply plug the device into the USB socket and plug your lead into the USB Doctor, the device will display the Voltage and Power being used by your various USB devices
    I have one of each type they're only peanuts to buy, search Amazon/eBay for USB Doctor
