Customer Question

I have a nuvi 2797LM and for some unknown reason it's begun to malfunction. It was working fine for about the hour drive I took; I was out of the car for a couple of hours (not in sunshine and/or high heat) and when I returned and drove off (no destination entered) it operated as usual posting "Ready to Navigate" and then suddenly the street map disappeared but the Speed and Direction spot spot continued to function. Shortly thereafter, it was displaying false locations. I powered off for a minute or two but that di9dn't help, then I powered off, disconnected the power cord and left it that way for 7 hours. I just returned to my car and the same "problem" existws. H E L P !
