I have a faithfull and very well used TomTom GO but a recent download / update now includes a 10 second countdown when I switch off the ignition. This is a pain because if I touch the screen during this count down when removing it from the holder to 'hide it away' it switches back on a again. If I fail to notice this it continues to run on its battery. What the purpose of this is I can't imaging - is there any way of hacking in or switching this 'facility' off. Thanks for your help ... Roger

Just press the power on/ off button and the device will stop the countdown and power off straight away.

That screen is very handy for those of us using RDS-TMC receivers, it stops the power being removed during a fuel stop and losing the valuable data and signal - Mike
