    Re... 'The tick is grey on my start 25'
    Some items are force ticked by Tomtom these items are Mandatory and cannot be deselected they MUST be installed before you can install the normal updates...
    I always update my devices one Update at a time
    The NavCore Application and QuickFixGPS updates are force ticked by Tomtom... Deselect any other updates like Maps, Speed Cams etc... Update the mandatory item/s first, when complete update the remaining items one at a time....

    As far as I recall... The QuickFixGPS file is issued daily but the contents of the file are good for the next 7 days.... I usually update the QuickFixGPS file weekly
    Note... The Live devices update the QuickFixGPS file over the air but the contents of the file are good for the next 4 days....

    If possible....
    For the first satellite fix after the 'Soft Reset'... Go outside with a clear view of the Sky
