Re: Am I crazy to buy another Garmin GPS

I have to agree with the other posts. Garmin H/H GPSs are pretty reliable . If it is a low voltage issue, try keeping AA batteries in it. All Garmin GPSs have an internal automatic transfer switch which will use external power if provided but if voltage drops or gets turned off, it will automatically transfer to the batteries. Also, there is a voltage gauge in the data menu, if it reads lower than your house bank's actual voltage, you may have a bad or over crowded ground which will mimic a low voltage problem and turn the unit off. Good luck.
