Resetting the Acer p700 Series Portable Navigator

You may have to perform a reset if the device freezes (i.e., device no longer responds to the buttons on the screen). A soft reset allows your device to get a fresh start, similar to rebooting a computer. This will restart your device and adjust memory allocation. All records and entries are retained after a soft reset. GPS settings are also retained.

Performing a soft reset
Hold the device securely, and slide switch the soft reset button on the bottom left of your device.
