    Does anyone else have to hold down the power button on their Tom Tom for a LONG LONG time?

    And then you start ?pushing it repeatedly to get it to come on. Is this just me and my unit.

    Tried resets, reloading firmware, etc...

    Thanks!

    It's annoying

    I was going to ask a question about this too.

    It seems like TomTom was trying to prevent accdental startups but went a little overboard as they have been known to do from time to time.

    Yup, I noticed this too with one of the recent firmware updates. Pretty annoying but, oh well. Hopefully it will be fixed sometime.

    I believe the new update 8.010 fixes this.
