Please help while doing a Geocaching Event my gps unit showed low battery then is shut off. Turned unit back on low battery came said unit was shuting down. After shut down I replaced the batteries tried to turn it on but it would not come on.  Changed the batteries again made sure they were put in right still nothing. Asked a fellow cacher we tried his batteries from his unit which was working at that time still nothing. Does anybody have any ideas?????

A friend of mine just got a brand new GPS and after 2 caches the power button stoped working.
He had to have it sent into the shop.

If you dont want to send it in try banging it on the wall a few times :p

If it will work on external power then it is the battery contact. This is a known flaw on these units. The connector looses contact with the "motherboard" not allowing a connection. Magellan Meridian Group on Yahoo has a file on the repair of this problem. (You must be a member to access it) Battery Contact Repair Hope this helps.
