What happens when you power it on?

When power it on- it comes on normal

when did this occur- out of the blue

ever updated- no/ purchase last year in may 2010

it works normal for saved items etc banks , gas stations and old addresses, but we can not put in new addresses

Please reset the device.
There may be a conflict, or firmware hangup.
See the tip I wrote HERE on performing resets on the 1440.

Let me know how it turns out.

Thanks!!
