Question about Garmin GolfLogix GPS-8
I may have the same issue described by others. Software update has created an issue with lock ups. Removal of batteries doesn't solve it.
Re attaching the unit to the base software works for awhile, but then it locks up again.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

You don't say if you tried resetting the 510 after the update.
To do a reset remove the grey faceplate trim piece. Along the right side of the screen there is a reset button. Press the reset button then plug the 510 into a power supply. The 510 should automatically power up and reboot.
It's possible that the update was corrupted when it was downloaded, or there is a problem with the processor. If you can't get your GPS to reboot, your PC wont recognise the GPS and you'll probably have to send the unit out for service.
If you have already tried the reset please rate as "thanks for trying"

I had losts of lock ups when flipping on the GPS - almost ready to get rid of the Garmin IQUE 3600 since it hasn't worked well for over a year. Sometimes it works a short time with the GPS; other times it was instant lock up when searching for satellites.
I took many steps to isolate the issue, and then added complexity to the equation: update to r6 (no change), hard reset, no user data on IQ3600 during testing, use only internal drive, only use basemap lite on internal drive, only use 1 local city on internal drive, load other maps on external card. Each time I went outside and flipped on the GPS to see if that was affecting the lock up.
Then I played with the GPS settings. The factor that seems to solve the issue: TURN OFF WAAS - it is intended to improve accuracy to 9 ft but it seems to have a bug.

click on help in the course manager software, then click on "How Do I restore my golflogix unit". connect it and turn it on. when it tells you its restored, turn it off and on, and load your courses again. FORE!

Make sure to wait until you press okay on your computer when loading courses before you unplug the unit. I was jumping the gun, unplugging it right when it turned off, and causing that issue myself with mine.

You may wish to perform a master reset and clear all of the problems this way:
To perform a Master Reset on the nuvi 200, 205, 465, 500, 600, 700, 705, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1600, 2200, 2300, or 2400 series device:
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or Favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your Favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so here.
*If the text language on your nuvi is not set to English, touch the button on the right.
