The power went off during the update, not my GO 6000 won't start properly (it gets to Select Country and no country appears to select) and when connected to my computer it shows 'Updating' and won't connect to MyDrive.

    Thanks for that......think it's more serious though.....MyDriveConnect shows 'Updating' but with no progress.....and the GO 6000 is stuck at 'Choose a Country' with none showing to choose, so 'Next' is greyed out.....
    If it got to opening up properly I could follow the video OK.
    Also tried turning -off & re-starting: always the same result. I think the interruption corrupted something very basic....

    Hi @john_birch2021

    Look back here on Monday to see what @VikramK suggests after he has reviewed your units logs on the TT servers.

    If it no longer connects to MyDrive connect, try using another cable.

    Also try to press the on / off button until you hear the sound of the tamtam and the device restarts.

    Tried all the above, no effect. Tried charging for 2+ hours, then hold-down at start-up, press on/off 3x quickly when white text appears = gets stuck on the TomTom screen. So assuming it's dead, killed by power cut during update. Not sure I'll get another Tomtom as it's impossible to get good, quick, personal support. Pity, it's been great, especially abroad.

    Would do if I could get the device to reset! After the white text & 3 presses it just freezes on the tomtom logo.
    A normal restart gets stuck at the Select a Country screen because no country is there to select, Next is grey so doesn't respond. Dead?

    only reset the device
    the device will restart, do not do the 3 presses.

    It re-starts, allows the language to be selected, but does not show any countries to be selected so the Next is grey and you can't get passed it.
