Garmin and TomTom units. Update prices are what they are so why update too often?

Roads don't change that often, so you don't need to update GPS maps frequently. Also, I've found that, when the GPS map points to a road that is no longer there, it's easy enough to find an alternate route, as the GPS will automatically recalculate once you start going down a different road.

I'd point you in the direction of the TomTom ONE 130S. They can be had for under $200 with text to speech and all the features you'd be looking for on a basic GPS. On top of that, upgrading to any new maps within the first 30 days of purchase are free so you can be sure you have the most up to date maps. I use the ONE 3rd Edition and I've been impressed with TomTom so far.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
