Question about Garmin GPS III
I think I may have found the solution.
A reply for a post on another site:
I visited the Garmin Corp office to seek help with that problem. If the shut down occurs right after satellite acquisition and the screen may show just a narrow black line going across it, it is likely due to some program changes the sattelite folks did without telling the software programmers. Garmin web site has a free download fix for the problem. Another option is to go into your settings and turn off the WAAS. Hope this helps. Go to the web site, check downloads, find your model gps and there you go. Good luck.
I disabled WAAS and so far so good.
I couldn't find the fix on the Garmin site.
