After sync this month - the unit will calculate route then goes back to main menu. Reset no good problem remains. Even " follow map" it goes back to main menu. Any one know what to do apart from buy Tomtom?

sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps
http://reviews.gpsfaq.com/downloads/eveshamnavcam7700software.pdf there is the software guide for you it has everything you need. If you have other issues you may need to replace the unit as you said it seems they are out of business. I would invest in a tom tom or something of the likes that is very reputable. Thanks, Lee
Not quite 100% sure what your description of the problem is saying.
If it isn't the auto shutoff but is when you tell it to follow a route or other function the problem is most likely a corrupted map or part of the map.
If it is brand new don't mess with it take it back. If it were out of warrenty you would have to reset or reload the map. It's not a major problem but for a brand new unit it just shouldn't happen. Garmin makes pretty good units so don't get discouraged by one being wonky.
All you guys, I can help you install IGo8 or other software for your gps with the latest maps and I need the copy of the flash memory for my defective unit. Normally this unit (at least mine did) look for mobilenavigator.exe on sd card so you can put other software on the card, rename the folder to mobilenavigator and the executable the same mobilenavigator.exe and you have Igo8 for example working on your device. And for helping me you put instead of mobilenavogator.exe a program called romdump.exe (but ofcourse you have to rename it to mobilenavigator.exe to run). Atfer that this program that I can provide by email will copy the content of the flash memory to SD in a .bin file that I can prelucrate to create the firmware update file and you will be protected in the future if you mess something up. Waiting for your answer email@example.com
I was having the same problem and contacted Garmin support.
What I had done was turned off the Basemap that came with the unit. I only had the mapsource map street map on which I had purchased separately.
The technician basically said the unit needed the basemap to "locate itself". Somehow the basemap supports any maps you purchase separately. That seemed odd but once I turned the Basemap back on it calculated the routes and the error message went away.
If you have the Basemap off, try turning it on from the Map Setup - Information window.
