I have a handheld Garmin GPSmap 76 unit that keeps shutting off after about 1 minute despite installing new batteries(twice). This unit has been flawless since Day 1, and with the numerous waypoints/markers already in it's memory, I'm afraid that they will be lost should the unit need to be "sent in". Any ideas as to what would make the unit keep shutting off? All I can do now is pop the cover and pull out/then replace the batteries, put the cover back on and press start/on and it starts up normally then goes blank after a minute(a line shows from top to bottom but pushing any buttons doesn't do anything else) I'll probably have to call Garmin on Tues. but WC has a LOT of intelligent anglers so I thought I'd throw this one out to them, while waiting for Garmin. Thanks in advance !!
