I had a similar error and I fixed it. That is, as far as I know...
Here's my theory: The SD card is acting like it has an error on it. This often happens when it is removed improperly.
HERE'S HOW TO FIX IT:
Remove your SD card from your GPS
Insert your SD card into an SD card reader or connect it to your PC
Wait for windows to go through it's process of discovering your the "removable storage device" your just connected (see step 2)
(This step may be different depending on what version of Windows you are using or depending on how you have your OS laid out). Look at the lower right hand corner of your desktop. There should me a small icon there with a green circle and a check mark. It looks like this...
Click that with the right mouse button.
It will say "Safely Remove Hardware" - Left click that message.
A window will pop up allowing you to select your SD card and "Safely Remove" it (it will have a letter name like "drive F" for example).
Wait for the windows to tell you it is ok to remove your hardware - then remove your SD card form the PC
Make sure your GPS is turned off.
Insert the SD card into your GPS.
Turn on your GPS
That's all! I hope I was able to help.

Your Garmin GPS has an SD card slot. You can use this slot to insert a removeable SD memory card into the unit SD memory cards for used for storage by many portable devices. The most common useage for the GPS is to view pictures taken by a digital camera (which also uses an SD card) with the GPS's picture viewer function.
I am not sure what the ads you are referring to are. Where are you seeing the ads? On the GPS screen? After inserting a SD card into the GPS?
Its more than likely that the data on your SD card has become corrupt or the card itself has become damaged / faulty. This can cause the tomtom to feeze on startup and doesn't even get past the loading process. You can "half" prove this by turning the tomtom ON without the SD card inserted. If you get the startup drums then a ' please insert SD card ' symbol on the screen , The card IS FAULTY . good luck. .................Hopefully , you backed up your SD card to your PC some time ago. If this is the case , you can just reload the files onto your SD card.
