Hi, I just brought a new Nuvi 1490T from Costco today and I'm having a problem with the device resetting itself each time I boot it up. By resetting itself I mean all data is lost and I get the 'Select a Locale' screen. The firmware has been upgraded to 4.00 and I'm stumped and I don't want to drive to Costco again if I don't have to. Can anyone speculate why my system is doing this please?
If you haven't acquired satellites yet, you will get the "Select locale" screen every time you power up. I don't know about losing all data, but try going out and acquiring satellites and maybe that will fix your problem. I've had this behaviour with both a 650 and a 1310.
Yes, just getting a satellite lock will solve the problem of having to enter the "user data" on every bootup.
