Brand new (refurbished) unit direct from Garmin - GPSmap 62st. First use, straight out of the box. Fresh lithium batteries, long bike ride - about 15 hours done, suddenly I get screen message "External power lost - Turn Off or Stay On?" (unit is running on batteries only, no external power.)

Hitting the Stay on option produces a screen saying "Saving all current points, tracks etc. as .gpx" and locks out at [85]%" leaving me with the only option of physically powering off and on again. Repeats again and again until I give up.

I tried with alternative (used) batteries - same result.

At home the following day, I realised I had forgotten to amend the default battery mode from alkaline to lithum. Does anyone have any experience of this? Could the wrong battery setting have initiated this issue?
