Hello,
I have a gpsmap 62s. I use it on my ATV. Recently it has started turning itself off randomly. Could this be because of heat or vibration? The batteries are new and Im not in battery saver mode or anything like that.

Thanks,
Jason

p.s. not sure where to post this, hopefully this is the right spot.

I'd say vibrations. Try adding a little layer of foam between the, batteries and the removable cover, not too much, nor too little:-)

I'll give that a try. Tech support wants me to reinstall the 3.00 firmware (which i already have, thus reinstall). Hope one of these fixes the problem. This blows :s
