So I updated the unit to 5.00 and now the unit doesn't give turn by turn voice navigation commands. Map shows direction but if I go of course it doesn't re-route, and when I get to my destination I finally get a command saying "You have arrived at your destination". Tried resetting with "mode" and "reverse track" button press but still no go.

Tried resetting with "mode" and "reverse track" button press but still no go.

Whenever weird things (of any kind) happen after an update, I recommend doing a hard reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.

One reason for this is that the unit is always powered by the yellow wire (constant +12v).When you turn off your car's ignition/acc, you just trigger the unit to go to sleep.   Many settings are stored in volatile memory. When a major update is installed, physical locations of the various setting values may change. 

A hard reset forces these settings to be initialized from non-volatile memory (NAND). Some setting may be lost, so you will need to reset some things.

 

Anyway, this is always the better way than starting to do any serious hacking or debugging.

Tried battery disconnect but still no voice navigation or map re-routing when off course.

Double check your Voice setting in System Settings / Regional Settings. Also make sure in Volume Settings that voice guidance volume is not muted and adequate volume.

 

AFA route re-calculation, there may be some differences in this version. I'm still looking. Was your unit always trying to re-direct you back to the original route? I've had problems with that too. I usually end up canceling the route and re-setting the route manually.

The manual is very vague about this.

 

BTW, why didn't you go directly to 6.0 (2015)?

Settings are all correct... Voice, volume, regional, still nothing until end of route.

Yes it would re-route as designed once I deviated from the calculated path. Honestly (sheepishly)I didn't know the 6.0 was available at the time I picked up the 5.0 : ^ (

Incidentally I have an F900BT and X910BT in other vehicles and neither have this issue.

Ok, so would it be correct to point to the firmware being the issue? And if so how do I go back to older/default versions?

A simple way that might allow you to fall back is using TestMode (Not Hackmode).  Using File Maintenance check to see if there is a file called USER/PRG.FLG     if there is, delete it (it is just an empty file), If one doesn't exist, then we need to create one. Be careful not to delete anything else. In fact, it is a good idea to back-up everything under USER to SD before doing anything serious than deleting/adding PRG.FLG. 

 

You may want to look for other posts with instructions - search for PRG.FLG.

 

The concept here is - the unit keeps two set of firmware: the current one and the previous one. They are stored in USER/PRG0 and PRG1. If /USER/PRG.FLG doesn't exist, the version in PRG0 gets run. Otherwise, PRG1 gets used.

 

Another option would be to install v6.0, but if you do that, it will be harder to go backwards (if it doesn't fix the problem), since the only two firmware versions on your unit will be 5.0 and 6.0.
