550XL Keeps shutting down/rebooting

Sometimes my unit will not be able to find GPS signal and will continue shutting down and rebooting. I hit the reset tab (which a pen doesn't seem to be able to do very well) but it continues to do it. After I hook it up to my computer to update and such then it works for a time. Getting very frustrating. Maybe I should start looking at Garmin.

    Try this.......

    Connect to Home. Start the emulator (Operate my Unit). Manage Favourites and add one, delete one, edit one, it doesn't matter.

    Then, disconnect properly from Home using the Device Disconnect icon.

    Any better?

    Do you mean its just turning on and turning off? I had a problem with the power button on my 330 once upon a time and it was just the button. It would keep rebooting because it thought the button was depressed.

    I'd just press it very hard and release it very quickly.

    While I prefer Garmin I wouldnt give up on your device its a good Tomtom and keep in mind the grass is always greener....
