The "New Location" fix above brought my GPS 60 back to full operation. I did reload the GPS software from Garmin but the recovery depended on well charged batteries and as above: turn the unit on
press MENU button
scroll to "New Location"
wait 10 minutes for the GPS to recover.

Based on your description I would suspect that the internal memory battery is depleted and needs to be replaced. This battery is required to retain waypoint and route information when the input power is low or turned off. The battery is soldered onto the main circuit board and needs to be replaced by a technician having good soldering skills and access to instructions for the disassembly and reassembly of the unit. There is a list of dealers on the Northstar website. Review the list and make a couple of phone calls to see which ones will do bench work on this unit.
