if I don't set a destination it stays on

but once I set a destination then it switches off

That is interesting.

I would udate it - I am not talking about the maps, but the software that the GPS uses.

Do you have Garmin Express installed on your PC? If not, download it from >>>HERE<<<

Install and run it on the PC, plug in your Nuvi and let the program scan the Nuvi for missing or out of date files.

If it offers new filess, take them. Then once loaded and rebooted, give it a try.

Let me know. I will be here.
