This means it is trying to read the map disc, and struggling.

The problem is due to one of the following:
1. dirty laser. Clean with a standard commercial wet-type CD laser cleaner

2. Weak laser combined with copied map disc. A copied disc is harder to read than a original new disc. Use an original disc and it will keep goind for a while (a few years, a few months...)

3. Weak laser with a original disc - here the only solution is to replace the nav laser (hard) or entire DVD drive (easy, very DIY)

You cannot reboot when driving. To do so requires the ignition turned off. Please stop the car to do that!

Thanks for the info. I was kind hoping that there was some way to reboot it at will. I will pick up a laser cleaner this week, and see if that does the job. The car is an '04, and I am sure that it has never been cleaned, so that might be the issue.
