    * Connect your Tomtom to Home and choose "operate my Device" ,
    * Now add a random address or location to your favourites,
    * This will rewrite the file mapsettings.cfg to the right format and you get rid of the re-booting loop without losing your favourites!

    I actually came to this thread to say exactly the same as your original post, but guess I'm nearly 12 months too late.
    So thanks for the confirmation.

    In the past I have never had a problem swapping the mapsettings.cfg from one map to another, but for the last week I have been playing around with a new Europe map that kept giving me nothing but grief but eventually discovered the problem I was having with my TT not starting was all down to the mapsettings.cfg file.

    But because the TT would always started in Home, today I decided to actually do what you suggested in your first post and found it solved the problem.
