Screen changing VIA 160 — TomTom Community

Screen changing VIA 160

I have a Via 160, and just recently it has started the annoying habit of changing its screen all the time. Not the vibration of the windscreen as it flicked thru 6 windows last night while I was stationary. I have tried updating and a partial reset (as I dont want to loose all my saved POIs and favourites) but it still pleases itself what screen it goes to.
Also on the subject of favourites and POIs, I cant seem to find the Community Content icon to update and save these. Any help much appreciated.

    Slide the sharp edge of a business card under the frame of the device to free up any 'gunge' lodged there that might be causing phantom keystrokes on the screen. Also, remove a screen protector if you have one.

    Thank you. Your suggestion came up as related once I posted this and have tried it. Back to work tomorrow so fingers crossed that it has worked.
