    Is the battery OK & is it charged ?
    What version of Navcore ?
    Is it a pre-patched version or have you patched it yourself ?
    What map name & version number ?
    Have you updated your map ?
    Did you copy the mapsettings.cfg file to new map folder ? (if yes try deleting it)
    Could try it with a different memory card.
    Or try using the v8.204 Navcore I've posted in the Guide thread.

    Wow - a very old map lol so it's overdue an upgrade .
    Have you got another memory card you can use - if not - make a full back up of the one you've got & then delete everything. Make a note of your DeviceID - you can find this on the file named ttgo.bif - open it up with Notepad.
    Take a look at this thread -
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    & get the v8.204 navcore (it's a copy of the one I had on my Go500) and the activation tool.
    Also get the v850 UK postcode files & the UK & RoI v855.2884. Follow the guide to activate the new map
