    so yesterday i'm creating the route from Whistler to Tuktoyaktuk on my Map62s. things are going well, but I take a little break.

    when I return to the device the screen is frozen, so I remove the batteries hoping for a total reset. when I re-install the batteries, nothing. fresh batteries, nothing, no screen, no on, nothing . . .

    this device, and all the others I've had over the years have been bombproof.

    any ideas, suggestions inmates?

    problem solved . . .


    by borrowing a friends MAP 62st!


    will delve deeper into the other one when I get home.

    'Climber, garmin tech support seemed to think it could be solved with updates/software/jiggery-pokery but I just didn't have the time or experience to deal with it before departure.
