    Default Go910 Keeps turning itself on, what to do...

    Hi all,
    I have a GO910 and a little problem that it turns itself on all the time.
    It can be sitting in the dock charging and turns itself on.
    It can be sitting in the drawer, and turns itself on.

    Any ideas as to what can be done to return it to normal and exorcise these power up demons.....

    Currently
    App 9.051.503855.2 OS 483784
    (1016, 27/2/2010)
    GPS v 1.20 Boot 4.86

    Put this file Suicide in the root, it will switch off your device completely
    I don't know if it's available here

    Here it is:

    Thanks for that pe1agp,
    I put it in as per the "read.me" but it has made no difference.

    When I push the off button, the screen comes up with the bad man screen then goes black, the charging led starts flashing and in 30 or so seconds, up it starts again

    I think I will clear the memory and start again.

    Any other ideas appreciated.

    Thanks

    You're welcome
    To be honest it happen me sometimes too, don't know the reason. After the first modification me and I've read many other too, have a problem when you want to put it on his dock.
    It's realy a strange behavior, without a reset first the 910 refuse to start at all, after a hard reset no problem at all, till the next time.
    Now I'm used to it and reset always first before I put the device on the dock at home or in the car, the same wtih switching off, when it happen I just reset it.

    Goodluck anyway

    Yes, just like Doctors saying. Nevermind it's just a minor problem, main thing is that the device bring me to where I want to be, and it still does.

    This problem is always present, even without planning a route. Despite this problem I like my GO 910

    if you press the reset button with a paperclip it helps by putting the unit to sleep until the next time you use it, this is a navcore problem (newer navcores not totally compatible)
