Ok, so be patient with it - sometimes it will do this for a while but should settle down - the important thing is that you've got an alternative to a Hard Disk, so the system will carry on working (apart from the odd restarts). Mine did this a few times and then hasn't done it for 8 months now.

If you cloned the hard drive and copied it back, this could be one reason, but you can always reload the firmware on USB and reset the system, which will reload the firmware and overwrite the old installation and partitions for you. That may be a solution if you are getting frequent restarts. If doing this, you will need to reload your maps on again though.

Ok i did another firmware install.
A few weeks in now and still frequent resets unfortunately.
I didnt need to reinstall the maps though so perhaps i did something wrong?
After install do i need to reset to factory settings?
