SOURCE: My sons Garmin nuvi 360 has just stopped acquiring

Try resetting everything. The first step is to Start the GPS unit, while it is starting (when the screen turns on) hold your finger in the lower left corner. It will then prompt you to open in maint. mode. Select yes, and go through the menus by selecting next. When a third option is shownsuch as reset, select it. Reset everything including deleting your saved addresses, you will loose all of your saved info but it should start working again. Hope this works for you as it did for me.

I have a Garmin 76CSx that freezes on start-up screen, no buttons have any effect. Only way to switch off is to pull batteries out.

I had the same thing. Seemed to be a faulty SANDISK 2GB MicroSD card. When I pulled it out, the unit worked again.

Using a DGPS on a 76csx

there is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.
