By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.

Sat nav won't reset. have tried the re-set button. Screen has frozen

If the reset button of your device is not resetting the device and it is still on the frozen screen. Just turn to the back of the device, unlock the battery from the device and remove it. Then you allow the device rest for about 5 minutes then you fix it back in. Plug the device for about 2 hours and power it on. It should work fine after this. Be sure not to turn on too many applications on the device at the same time time, because that could result in the device being frozen again.
You can as well update the software of the device by charging it for about 2 hours, then you connect it to the computer that has its software. That will show if there are recent updates for the device, then you update the software with the latest version. that should take a little while to update. Then install your maps on it, safely disconnect the device from the computer and turn it on. That can also help you solve the problem.
Hope this was helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

When I put my RAC 500 sat/nav into sleep mode,how do I get back to navigation

You should be able to just press the screen and it'll come back to life. Failing that, press the on/off switch - if it switches on, go to Navigate, if it switches off, switch it back on again and go to Navigate.

Bought a TRAVEL-MATE SAT NAV on EBAY--Instruction book missing.

Hi Michael
You could try this website ( based in china ) to see if you can get those items but would suggest if the seller isnt willing to help raise a dispute not only on EBaay but also Paypal ( assuming you used paypal to pay for it) Pay pal will reduce his acount abilities as in he will only be able to accept money and not be able to withdraw it or spend it anywhere else until the despute is resolved.
