Hi, I seem to have a problem with my 700HDs II where it won't turn off. I think I have narrowed it down to mostly when i navigate a route in on road mode, and then cancel the route. No matter which mapping software I am then it I can't shut it down and have to leave it running until the battery goes flat.

    Hi Lachlan

    I've attached a file (sys.txt) that if you copy into the SDcard>drive folder (you'll have to overwrite the existing file), this should fix the issue that your having.

    Kind regards

    I copied the new sys.txt file into the drive folder, when I do this I can shutdown the GPS, however the on road mapping software no longer see's the GPS receiver. I've reset the GPS system (through the shell software), I can see aprox 6-8 satellites from the shell software. The VMS off road software can see the GPS receiver and locate me, however shutting down the off road and loading the on road, it can't and the GPS satellite screen in the on road software shows 0 satellites. I have reloaded the old sys.txt file onto the VMS for the moment so I can use on road navigation mode. Happy to try any other suggestions?

    I have tried copying the file across a couple of times. ie, copied it across, rebooted, had the problem. Restored back to old file and it worked, tried new file again and then the issue came back so it appears to be the new sys.txt file that is causing the bug. My phone number is below if you want me to run through anything.

    Kind regards

    HI Lachlan

    I'm really sorry about that, I'm an idiot (and today is a good day!).

    Please try this attached sys.txt file. I forgot to put the GPS pointers in the last one, and my personal unit seemed ok with it, however putting the GPS pointer in it isn't going to hurt it, and might make lock faster (I really need to update my unit!)

    Again sorry for this, I've tried and tested this on 4 new units and all test ok.

    Kind regards
