Were can i buy a strap for my garmin s1

No, the Garmin Approach S1 does not have replaceable straps.

The Garmin Approach S1 would need to be sent back to the Garmin Repair Center.

The Garmin Repair Center in Canada is Raytech Electronique in Laval, Quebec.

Keeps beeping and displaying approaching turn

The "Approaching Turn" message is coming from an active navigation on your device. To turn it off, press and hold on the left side of the bezel (GPS), then press the lap/reset/quit key to exit the compass screen. You should then be in the GPS menu. There should be an item in this menu titled "Stop XXXX" where XXXX is "Navigating", or "Back to Start", or something like that. Select that option, and it should stop the navigation, and eliminate the "Approaching Turn" messages.

Approach G5 screen say cannot unlock maps as soon as you turn it on. Suggestions?

There's information on how to unlock maps on Garmin nuvi satnavs at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing. I don't know if the approach G5 would unlock in the same way but there's a good chance it would since they're both made by garmin. All I can say is have a look at the information on the link, check if the information you need is available on myGarmin and if the same files are on your GPS. If all these are the same it should work.

I put new batteries in , pushed on button, Garmin screen comes on and that's it and then can't turn off. Need to pull the batteries to turn off. Any suggestions. This is on a Approach G5

Hello,

This sounds like a firmware issue try downloading Garmins WebUpdater Software and giving the unit a firmware update. If your are unable to connect the GPS to the PC you will have to send it in for warranty or repair. Here is a link to the Garmin Software you will require for the updates.

Hope this helps!

My garmin approach 3 will not acquire a gps signal. Why?

There are many reasons for a GPS to fail to acquire signals from the satellites. You should be outdoors with a clear sky the first time you attempt to get it to work. If it's worked before, but stopped working, it may be defective. Garmin recommends many thing to do at this link:
