If you were inside the Grand Canyon when it stopped working, it probably couldn't get a signal. When you say it stopped working, does it still turn on or is it completely dead? If you travel with a GPS and then turn it on at a new location, you must leave it out in the open for up to 20 minutes for it to adapt to new location, and to download the info from the satellites.

Call Garmin. I had exact problem and nothing I did worked. They had me load new drivers, software and remove the settings on my Garmin. After about 50 minutes of different things, it now works and can locate satellites and routes.

Fritzed Unit when antenna up


I have a similar problem but I can't turn the GPS off at all, even when the antenna is down. As far as the power on/off cycle, I found another link on this site that said to turn off WAAS while the GPS is off then when you turn it on the unit will not power cycle continuously. You loose the WAAS feature but the GPS and unit still works.
