    I have exactly the same problem. It's really interesting though...I can take the device into my office and turn it on and it will run for hours, on simulation. It just seems to have issues after it actually gets a lock on the satellites. Oh no, another governemnt conspiracy!!

I contacted Garmin and they actually researched the problem and got back to me with a solution a few hours later. I have already instituted it and it works. Here's what they suggested:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International. I will be more than happy to help you with this. The situation you described appears to come from a change in the WAAS system by the government. To correct this issue you must turn the WAAS off. To do this turn the unit on and press the menu button twice. Next highlight setup and press enter. Under the system tab, WAAS is located in lower right hand corner. Scroll down and over to highlight enabled, press enter and change to disabled. Engineering has been informed however due to the discontinued status of this unit we are not sure when ( or if ) a new unit software will be issued to correct this problem. I appologize for any inconvienience.

Hope this helps!

This is usually a memory error. You may have too many apps open and need to close them.

Double click the home button to bring up all the open apps on your iPad. They will list in a line across the bottom of the screen. If you are on iOS7 or later you simply swipe the screen shot of the app upwards to close the app completely. Then go back to your home screen and open the app as you normally do. This should force the app to reboot and work as intended.

After closing all the apps you should then shut down the iPad completely. You can do this by holding the sleep button on the top edge for about 5 or more seconds. You will then see a slider on the touchscreen pop up that indicates you can shut down the device. After it is completely shut down, count to 10 and then press and hold the same sleep button on the top edge for 5 or more seconds to reboot the iPad. You can also plug it into your computer or charger at this point to force the iPad to turn on.

Why does screen go black after a few seconds


Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

When I start Vista the startup bar shows up and then power goes off to the screen and the computer re-starts again and again. I get the black screen safe mode screen also. Additionally, I.E. shuts down...


Windows is toast, my friend. I hope you have a good backup, and recovery disks. It's probably malware, but the bottom line is Windows needs to be reinstalled.

The Startup repair program is running and wont stop


A complete scan can take several hours to complete. If you want to shut it all down unplug it and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for at least 10 minutes, and until it cools down.
