    According to the Nextar site GPS units have a 1 year warranty
    Go to the site and get them to repair your unit. You have already paid for this service.

Try connecting it to your PC using the USB and see if there's a firmware upgrade for it. If there is, do the upgrade; the problem sounds like an initialization error in the firware.

I have a Garmin 200 W nuvi gps. I received it a little over a year ago. I was able to just plug it into my car and it would always work. Now after only 2+ hours it shuts down on me. I plugged it into...

if your GPS wasn't in use for long time, the battery could have lost it's charge completlly and in that
case the battery is irreversible damage and won't keep the charge as it used to.
When this happens, the charging circuit inside the GPS sensing the condition of the battery and shuts the unit down to prottect it from damage.(fire/explosion)
Hope am wrong, but in the case if I am not, you need to replace the battery (if it's internaly hard wired) by somone who is competent to do so, or get a new GPS and don't let the battery to go flat.
