    I'm looking for the command to disable this pop up on Maps every 10 seconds or so (the one with the green Start button).

    I am on my 3rd 700 GPS since September, and on the 2nd one I found something within settings that enabled me to suppress this, but now I can't find it.

    Does anyone know where this command is please?

    Are there any words displayed with this pop-up?, if so what do they say?, could you get a screen grab or take a photograph of the pop-up?, do you know what the pop-up is telling you or requesting you to do?

    It's a shortcut drawer that keeps popping up.
    I'm sure there is some way to stop it but can't find it in settings. You can manually bring it up by swiping up.

    Thanks, but the shortcuts are different screens to this.
    I found it by accident on my last GPS and have gone through the guide and various settings screens but I just can't see the option this time.

    You did describe it as a shortcut in post #3, I'm still not sure what the pop-up is offering to do, in other words 'START' what?,

    Yes I agree I did. The shortcuts that the manual refers to ours extra screens sideways (swipe left or right).
    The pop up drawer has further shortcuts to settings (the 3 lines) and the start button starts the GPS recording your walking track so you can keep it or it can be converted it to a route later.
