Question about Garmin Outdoor GPSMAP 78sc GPS Handheld Receiver 010-00864-02
After pushing power on button the GPS 78sc starts to power on but then quickly tunes off. Tried a new set of batteries as well as using the cigeratte lighter power connection. Made no difference. I used the device earlier that day for about 4-5 hours with no problem.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Avoid buying Garmin GPS. Their units have a non user replaceable battery that last about 2 years. After that, you have to send the unit to Garmin to replace the battery and be hit with at least $150 plus shipping. Possibly more if they need to fine tune something else. Look at other brands with easier battery replacement such as Sony, Navigon, etc. Garmin is a total rip off.

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps

I have the same problem of the Nuvi 850 being recognized by webupdater. I downloaded 4.30 firmware update using this link http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4043 plug the unit in and ran the update. It will ask you to disconnect once it is done. The unit will boot up after a few update progress bars. Plug it back in and launch webupdater.

Just use your USB cable that came with it to connect it to your computer. It will charge just fine. You can also use a cell phone charger that has a USB connector. A lot of cell phones use this type of charger now and the charge will work fine with the GPS>
