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.

Most reset would revert the unit back to factory default and therefore may and could erase all user stored settings and configurations.
Having been forewarned, Pressing "up"+"enter" keys while powering up the eTrex will reset the eTrex to factory defaults. So, all pressets and data will be lost.
Additionally, you may be able to do bypass and other tricks using the "Secret Startup Commands for Garmin handhelds".
Tight lines and hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Let's assume the unit is in good conditions. When you travel for more than 500 Kms the unit need more time to acquire the satellites, so the solution is to keep the unit on in a uncovered area for about 15 minutes.
