Question about Garmin GPSMAP 525s GPS Receiver
I connected the unit to the battery, the unit turned on for 1 second and then turned black.
After the first try nothing happens when I try to turn it on.
The unit was connected red wire to plus and black wire to ground.
I tried to reset it but it did not work. I have shipped the GPS back for a replace.
Thanks for trying to help. When I get the new GPS I will start with updating the software as described.

This is a common problem with 400 and 500 series garmins. The only fix is to take it back and exchange it. There has been a software update to prevent it from happening but once it powers down it's too late for the update. This has been a known problem since they hit the market in May. Any respectable retailer should exchange it with no questions asked, especially if you just bought it.
