    Looks like bad Sat Fix.
    Do Firmware updates and all optional updates.
    Do hard reset and leave Nuvi outside for 20 minutes to get all Sat Data.
    When I was in the UK it was difficult to get a Good Fix in cloudy sky.

    1) And check if map had installed correctly. May be you drive through basemap. How do you installed map?
    2) Do you look on satellites page (put your finger on satellites signal strength indicator and hold)? Do you see sufficient number of received satellites?

    Most nuvi series [including all 2 series] can be hard reset by holding the lower RH corner while powering on the unit. Info is in the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Specific thread with info on 2x5[W] is here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
