What did you use to update the maps? If you installed and used Garmin Lifetime Map Updater software, the it could be a bug in that software. It is actually a well-known issue with it.

Instead of using Garmin Lifetime Map Updater, just go to Garmin web site and use their Dashboard as an alternative way of updating maps. It works much better.

To get rid of ads on this unit, you'd have to purchase Garmin's HD traffic receiver

This unit is compatible with it.

However, it is worth noting that traffic information they supply (HD or not) is pretty useless.
True on the traffic function - funny when it announces "Traffic ahead" when you've been in the middle of it for the last 10 minutes. You'd be better off listening to AM radio for real-time updates.
