    Default What causes GPS device to switch on by itself

    Hi,

    I have a Generic GPS device with current maps. I had to charge the device as battery was low. After being fully charged, I held the button down until the other icon shows to power off, sometimes that button shows, other times it won't show.

    After pressing the power off button, unit switches off then switches back on by itself, I've tried many times repeating the process and then it repeats the same thing.

    Very frustrating, now battery is completely drained again. now it's off.

    Does anyone know what causes this to happen?

    Thanks.

    Bondy

    Ok,
    I'll have to check again and copy the micro sd card . As it was generic this is no name brand. It has the latest maps of Australa and New Zealand HERE and TomTom as well as OzieExplorer.

    I'll have better info to provide later today.

    Ok, I've copied the MicroSD Card to look at the contents.

    As I don't know what I'm looking for, what extra information is needed.

    Cheers.

    I had a look at System Info and this is all that is seen.
    ROM Version 84:HM.E.NE.5.02120906
    Software Version VN.2.0.12.09.08
    OEM Info

    This is all I can find, hope this helps.

    Cheers
