Go to the Garmin.com web site and search under FAQ's. The "reset" method is described, and it works. Went to Spain and had to reset to pick up the satellites there. Usually, it is best to search the manufacturer's web sites for answers before trying to find the answers in these self-help sites.

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.

SOURCE: shuts off, locks up
A new satellite was launched which is causing problems. Disable WAAS for a temporary fix. Update the unit's software for a permanent fix, the update addresses this problem.

it turns out I inadvertently adjusted the screen contrast. This is adjusted by holding the left arrow key down after powering up, until the contrast is corrected. If the screen was completely white, holding the right arrow key down after powering up would bring contrast back into balance.
