Is your engine running ?

White screen on startup sounds like a voltage sag ?

Maybe one out of 10 tries, it will actually start up correctly. And, no matter which way I orient it (portrait or landscape), it always switches to the other layout. Furthermore, its route calculation _always_ fails until after I change the route algorithm to a different choice (shortest distance vs. fastest time vs. "smart" algorithm).
