GPSMAP 180 Ver. 4.04/4.05
as of March 29, 2001). my notebook, on batteries went to sleep.
firmware on gps got fried. now cant bootup, cant operate gps, cant reload...dead. when I turn on GPS it says on screen "UPLOAD NOT PRESENT" Garmin says unit not supported and can not send it in for repair.
This unit came with boat I bought.

The battery is rechargeable - if you leave it switched off

may recover. If not contact Garmin as they have replaced
many memory batteries free of charge even out of warranty.
