    How many Zumo 590 users have experienced random power loss ( for want of a better term), doesn't matter if in the cradle or not. I wasn't able to get unit to turn back on via power button, had to unplug battery and re install.

    this is the second time this has happened now. Unit is only 6 months old

    I haven't had to pull the battery, but I've had a few random crashes and times where I've had to reseat it into the cradle...

    Try holding the power button on for 10-15 seconds - that works for me when it blacks out.

    Happens fairly often. The fix is simply to take the battery out and and put it back in again. For some reason it works and the GPS powers up again
