Unfortunately there is news that some Tom-Tom Sat-Nav devices are freezing and refusing to start a journey. No answers or permanent fixes yet. http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-17599701
TomTom has blamed a "leap year bug" for a fault which has caused some of its satellite navigation devices to stop working.
The firm said that a problem with its global positioning system firmware was causing "a limited number of models"
to fail to identify their location.
Affected users are presented with a grey screen and a message saying the machine lacks a GPS signal. Update 3rd April 10:00 CET: We have identified the root cause for some of our products not obtaining a GPS position since the 31st of March. The issue is caused by a ‘leap year’ bug in the software of the GPS receiver. We are working hard on a permanent solution that we will make available on our website as a downloadable software fix. More information will follow later today. If you click Notify me at the bottom of this FAQ, you will automatically receive an update.
