Where'd that screen come from?
1. Where did that screen come from? Nav VI? or something else.
2. I too, have ongoing issues with the Nav VI not starting. There is a page on the Garmin site relating to it. <https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=im7G0y2zfs07DOWUNdACmA> However, this did not resolve the issues with my Nav VI.
3. My solutions,
a. for some reason the Nav VI can discharge so if it has been sitting more than a week I charge it off of the bike and charge it a bit via a typical USB charger. It doesn't have to be fully charged, but has to have some charge.
b. Even with a full charge, often Nav VI still won't start. In this case I have to take it out of the cradle and start it manually, sometimes having to hold the button down about 30 seconds before it initiates. After it starts, without shutting it down, I put it back in the bike's cradle, start the bike and drive away. Nav VI then works normally. Issue is sporadic. Sometimes it starts, sometimes not, but a least I can force it to start with the technique noted. I think it is an unresolved Garmin problem.
4. Nav VI is pretty nice when it is working, but really annoying that a $1000 GPS that it does not reliably start.
