    Just bought a gpsmap 64st, (had a 62s for 5 years... worked fine, but wanted a upgrade)

    The 64st keeps turning off.

    And for a start it was "lost". I have used it for about three weeks, and thats has not been a problem.
    I turned it off two days ago, just outside mine house, when i got out today it was blinking ???. when it get contact with satteltes (green scale), it was still lost, and said probelm with sattelites.

    I did a reset, and then i was ok. But..... I had a bikeride for aprox 5 hrs, and it turned off about 6 times.

    I have powersave/scrensva for after 30 sek. (had it also on my 62s with no problems)
    I switched to fully chagred NiMH... turned of. Swithced t standrad batteries, turned off after a while.

    Any tips? (sorry for my bad english)

    I think the unit is faulty, if it is still under warranty, I would ask for a replacement unit
