    Hi @mickymouse

    If you have a spinning cogwheel it's that your device is in Recovery Mode. there was a break during the update of the NavCore (internal software of the device), it failed. MyDrive Connect software must reinstall the NavCore.

    look at and follow the instructions in this FAQ from point N°8:
    https://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1898

    If you need more help contact TomTom support:

    Hi
    @mickymouse

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ???? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    RESETTING YOUR NAVIGATION DEVICE

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    If possible, for the for the first Satellite fix, go outside with a clear view of the Sky

    Hi all

    @mickymouse

    Soft Reset (Drum Reset) or Recovery Mode are the only two known solutions to troubleshoot our devices.

    I don't know the screen you are describing but it seems that your Start25 can't find and use its NavCore. You have to make a point with the customer service before attempting anything. Sorry.

    You are on a user forum, to get help from TomTom service team you need to contact TomTom support directly. And considering your problem that's what I advise you.
