It just wont turn on. :(

Batteries are good.
Terminals are clean
Did not get it wet
I have tried the factory resets mentioned on Garmin discussion sites

Any suggestions?

Throw it to the ground.

Seriously.

Not on pavement, mind you. :tsk:

But a good toss on a walking path did wonders for ours. :wink:

Technical Overview

I dropped it (bottom first) on a hardwood floor from a one metre elevation.

:rofl:

:thumbup:

I have two ways to fix things...throw it if you can or if it's a computer...turn it off and on a few times.

See, dropping it or throwing it shows it who is the boss. Gets the device's attention. :wink:

:lol:
