Tom Tom Via 130 Western Europe Start-Up Failure After Map Update: Hey guys, I wonder if I could get some advice. I recently purchased a complete Western Europe map update for my very faithful but somewhat outdated TomTom Via 130. But after I performed the update as directed by TomTom, the device now seems to have difficulty fully booting itself up and coming on. Most often, when i press the power button, the device begins the start-up sequence but then stops, then proceeds to begin the start-up sequence again, and the device will do this repeatedly for approx 5 - 10 minutes and sometimes longer. Eventually the device fully boots itself up and I am then able to begin navigation. But even then, on occasions the device has unexpectedly switched its self off and begin the start-up sequence once again. If anyone has a fix in mind I would greatly appreciate any help provided to get 'Old Faithful' working as before. Thanks Greatly Jo
