I lodged a problem, GPS shuts down after about a minute.
Who in their right mind would want their GPS not to work when they turned it on? What is the point of having a GPS that will not give you visible map or directions?
When putting in "Sleep after 1 minute" one presumes that is after the trip! Why do you have a setting that shuts down the GPS after 1,5, or whatever minutes.
When I read some of the problems on your help site and reset my GPS looking to sort other problems out, it twigged that the one minute that was causing me all the grief was the setting I had put in there!

Like i just asked, why would anybody want their GPS once turned on to automatically shut down after one minute, so; why on earth is that option even there? It's just plain stupid.

    Hello Mike,

    At least you have found the setting and have disabled it (that is, set to "Always on")
