Question about Garmin GPS 12 GPS Receiver
My seven year old Garmin GPS 12 has recently begun turning off all by itself. It does not do the 2 second power down, it just blacks out as if the batteries were removed. (It does this with fresh batteries) However, it only does this after several seconds of being moved around, not when it is sitting still. The coil spring battery contacts seem to apply sufficient pressure on the batteries.
Has anyone experienced this sudden power loss before or know of a way to correct this problem. Everything else on the Garmin GPS 12 works great.
Use the paper, It worked for mine. I almost tossed it but now it's fine.

Stay clear of rechargeable NiCads as they supply to low voltage and you may experience cutouts ? Use good quality regular alkaline batteries. Check battery terminals in gps (both ends) for corrosion/rust and clean if necessary.
