Does not work in foilege

Not a lot you can do about this afraid.

Some devices specify a optimum handling angle for best satellite reception. For example, my old Nokia N82 phone used to work best on a 45 degree angle!

Lost destination after saving it

Sounds like the internal memory battery is run down - it's charged from the AA's. Usually does not recover. Battery (the VL1220) is shown here:

It' easily replaced once the case is open but requires a steady hand with a fine tip soldering iron. Local story started by me here.

Sealing the case up again is very fiddly - hard to make a tidy job with silicone.

What sort of internal memory battery is in my garmin 12xl?

You can find the battery here:

To open the case, scrape the sealant in the grove around the unit; then use a flat screwdriver, as wide as possible, that fits in the grove. Place the screwdriver on all sides and different places. Rotate the screwdriver gently until the glue tears and both gps housings can be separated.

To replace the battery you will need to be handy in soldering in tight spaces.
