When last did you get a gpsfix file? Try a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds.

Thanks DHN. worked a treat. I havent tried uploading new maps yet,so I still dont know if it will talk to the computer. May be next week. In the meantime it appears to be working much faaster than ever and doesnt go looking for "where am I " when it first turns on. Ta. regards
