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.

Have you tried the "recalibrate" touchscreen command?
Press the "wrench" symbol at the main menu, then the "display" icon, and then "recalibrate".
Go through pressing the dots as requested and see if that cures your problem.

SOURCE: Replacement Memory Battery
The Garmin GPS III and III plus use a tabbed lithium coin battery. Its is a Panasonic BR-2032. You can buy these for about $2 from larger electronic suppliers. The problem is that the shipping or minimum order will make that $2 battery cost you about $25. For you cheap guys there is a solution. You buy a CP-2032 and a coin holder. $2-3 for the battery and $1-$2 for the holder. 6 screws to open the case, cut the wires close to the battery as possible. Solder the wires to the coin holder (good idea to heat shrink or cover the solder joints), put in the new battery and you are done the easy bit. You will most likely have to trim away some of the plastic on the holder such as legs or other things sticking out. Unfortunately you can't really do this with out fitting it in the case and you don't want to do that until you have the holder on the wires so it will be in the right place. Once you get that, simply play with it until you can put the screws back in. And tighten gently. Not too much or the gasket will be squeezed too far out. Put tAA'sx AA's back in, take it outside so it has an unobstructed view of the sky, set it down and go for a long coffee or three. It will now download the almanac and any other data which can take 15 minutes or more depending on the satellites. You should see a low battery error and other errors such as saved data lost. Ignore these. You can put it on a external power plug or just leave it off with the AA's and in 5-7 days it will have reset the error as it figures it it now charged. You get the battery error even with a new fresh charged battery. I think there is a Garmin reset code to force this but none of the codes I have tried have worked.

Hopefully the usb adapter just confused the battery. Did you use it this time or a regular plug? Its always best to fully discharge a battery and fully recharge it for the next use. They will lose life and malfunction otherwise. Glad you've had some luck, hopefully it will work just fine now.

I have a Garmin c340 that would not turn on.
I found the hidden reset button and it works now.
With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now.
