My Garmin nuvi 200 does the same thing with the warning.  It displays
it, but will bypass after 30 seconds or so.  Then it just sits at the
menu instead of going directly to the map by default.  I still have to
touch it to make it show anything interesting.

After the initial OK or wait, it never asks you again until you power cycle.

I saw on a friend's Prius that the built-in GPS device forbids anyone
to operate it while the car is moving.  Not even the passenger.  You
have to physically stop the car to make changes.  Talk about
