    When I turn on my Sportrack Color, the title screens comes on for a number of seconds and then when it should go to the next screen it shuts off. I have replaced the batteries a number of times already. Still nothing.

Did you manage to fix it? If not, do you want to sell the dead unit for parts?

Did you go into your settings and change the comport to a different setting? There are several and you can just keep changing them until it recognizes one of them. I have had to do this before.

My sportrak Pro shut off while I was doing a firmware update and now does not turn on

To put a Sportrak into Software update mode that doesn't appear to turn on (Most likely due to corrupt firmware).

Hold NAV and MENU and press POWER. This should put your Sportrak into software upload mode. Once your GPS is in software upload mode you can use magup in expert mode to upgrade the firmware.
