Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. That device is from a generic chinese manufacturer. So there isnt a ton of support information , nor easy or available map or software updates. What you can try to do is reset the unit. With the unit turned on, locate the reset button on the back. Hold that button in for one minute solid. The device will reset. Then, turn it off and on. Then test again. Does it still jump back to the screensaver whenever you search? If so, theres nothing further you can do. The device has no map updates, and no software updates available. The manufacturer Offers zero support. ( no downloads, no forums, nothing at all ) Id strongly suggest considering Garmin. A leading name in GPS devices, who updates their software and maps quarterly, and has a great warranty and support department. You can get a brand new 7 inch model with lifetime map updates here for 200$ Or a brand new 5 inch model with free lifetime map updates here for 100$ I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent submitted below this answer when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.Dustin S.Senior Technician and Network Switching Systems Operator / Maintainer.
