Re: Why won't my GPS shut off when I press the on off...
Alot of the times the place where the button should be making contact with the contacts on the circuit board, don't. I would open the unit up and ensure the ends of the plastic power button aren't broke. ie. you can feel them press in when you press them manually without the plastic button.
Another way to turn your unit off is to press the Repeat button (on top) + Enter + Cancel at the same time.

There is not a driver available to download for this gps. You may try a hard reset which involves pressing the reset button located on the back or bottom with the tip of a paperclip for ten seconds. Otherwise the hardware or software may be corrupted and you will either need to return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it or contack nextar customer service to see how they can help you.
this seam like a memory failure to me ..and it is the equivalent of a blue screen on computers..Note that these kinda gps have a reset hole with a hidden button ..and you can default it if you press it with a stylus or a sharp object ...if after that is still the same ..you have to reload the software for the program it causes issues..(probably to get the firmware updates..)
