Start 25 loses guidance

My 6 year old TomTom Start 25 has worked perfectly until I tried to update the map last week. It did not update, even though it was connected for 6 hours.
Now when a route is set it loads fine, but after a few minutes the screen return to the main menu and you have to go back and reset with "Recent Destination"
I tried a partial reset to factory settings , but it makes no difference.
Any ideas?

    if it is restarting and returning to the main menu, set it to resume where you left off (after power resume).

    I'll have a go and see, but because it's random it may take some time. Thanks for answering.

    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...
