  • Problems with power/Voice Guidance

    So I got my rig assembled (Old laptop, 8' touch screen, USB GPS) and installed, and everything works great in the driveway. I'm using a 300 watt inverter to power the laptop, which works great- Except while using ANY kind of Voice Guidance, the laptop restarts, with both Streets and Trips '07 and IGuidance 3. It doesn't shut off right away, I usually get the vocal 'Proceed to road' instruction, but the second I hit the gas pedal (whether in neutral or drive) the laptop restarts. If I turn off Voice, the laptop will navigate for 15 to 30 minutes before doing the whole restart thing. I think it happened once while turning on the AC too. Any one have a similar problem, or any ideas?
