    I have a different model, but I have no such issue on my GO 1535. It gives me an excellent hands-free phone connection on the road.

    Does the Via 135 actually have a connection to your phone? I am really not familiar with the models sold in the UK, but here the Via models with which I am familiar do not have a phone connection.

    That's the same as our Via 1535 here. There's a hands-free option on that one.

    Might you have a safety setting to show essential menu items when driving?
