    My 730 does the same if its connected to a PC but being used as stand alone, does it do it when used as stand alone and plugged into your car's charger ?

      If you create a notepad file and name it ( nosuspendauto.dat ) and install in the root of your TomTom, device will stay on when connected to your computer. rymacg

              i'm holding a 530 using exactly the same nav and map (loaded to a 16gb card) with 8.014 and an out of date Uk map on the internal memory but if you goto "change preferences,page 7 of 8,battery saving preferences,select never dim screen followed by unticking the box for switch off when external power is lost,it should sort it for you!
