Screen Locks up after calculating the route

TomTom app had been working fine until it was time for me to renew my subscription last week. After spending several hours downloading the required upgrades, TomTom screen just froze. I reset my device and it started working again. However, now every time I search for a destination, the screen will freeze after the route is calculated and will not work again until after I cycle power on the device.

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

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs….
    (Preferably using something like a Smartphone Charger using the Tomtom USB lead)
    OR have the device plugged into a power supply while the device is restarting
    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....

    Thanks for your input, However, my android divice is fixed mount screen in my car. It does not have a power button. The device reboots every time I restart the car. So, unfortunately, it is still not working.
