Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver
This happened to me twice, and both times it was after I had loaded the route for a long trip. Both times, the total map memory required (as indicated in the Quest) was much less than 115 MB - in one file the maps required 63 MB, and in the other the maps required 59 MB. And both times, I was able to "hard-boot" the Quest by simultaneously pressing page-OK-power and selecting "yes". This action also erased the route, the downloaded maps, and all of my preselected options.
My experiences suggest that the actual working memory in the Quest is less than the advertised 115 MB, but I haven't yet determined whether that's true and, if so, what the actual limit is.

Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.
1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on
b. depress menu
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.
Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
