Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) Do you see the field NAMES - on the view map screen? If so, can you tell me the names you see there - with the TIME and MILEAGE?

2) The AGE of the device?

3) WHEN this issue first began (or was noticed)?

4) Have you "customized" your map screen - to show the time and mileage? If so, please take a look at the following video and make sure you have put the intended data fields in the display, and then TEST your device - to see if you get what you expect.

Please let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.

Thanks, ***** *****

I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.

Thanks, ***** *****
