How to Fix GPS Garmin GPSMAP64ST

I Have a new Garmin GPS Model GPSMAP64ST.

Sometimes when I change batteries the GPs doesnt works,

No turns on.its a big error for Garmin.

I have had to open it, take off the 8 screws at the back side with torch screw driver #7 and you can find that tha cover have a press contacts to translate the batteries voltage.It makes a False contact.If you make to make more pressure,its the same,again the same false contact.

Finaly I opened the GPS, soldered the possitive and negative contacts and now Its OK.

Fast and clean turning ON! see the Photos enclosed

On My garmin gps 72H none of the buttons will work. EG I cannot change pages or turn off. Was working fine then changed batteries and this occured. Any suggestions??

I would read the owner manual first and then remove the batteries for a while and put back. This does not use recharge able batteries?

Sometimes it will not all the streets, especially main streets, unless is zoomed in, try the zoom feature in and out, or three 3 d or 2 d feature.
