This manifests itself as 4 consecutive dialogue windows, ~ 3 lines wide, as a small box in the centre of the screen, which read:
Memory Allocation Error
then 3 more windows roughly as above, different Memory Address values.
After clicking Ok to the fourth small central dialogue, the standard WM5 revolving program loading icon remains & you can do some limited extra things with MioMap, but it will not quit & it is essentially a device soft-reset. This has happened 3 times this afternoon whilst I tried to calc. various routes across Europe.
This was darn annoying as it takes at least a minute to set up your waypoints & then at the end of the route calculation (of course, at the end of it!) as it is hanging about ready to refresh the screen, it hangs with this error boxes.
Also, does anyone know how to ask the A701 to just calculate a route between two or more flags, and not incoude your current GPS position. e.g. The route between Berlin and Frankfurt, whilst you are actually in London? (just like you would do with a ruler & a map!)
On a good note, I found the new-route re-calculations within the UK very quick & still enjoying the woman's voice. She can tell me what to do anytime...
