Oh no! Garmin Oregon shuts off after fifteen seconds, no matter what! in GPS Posted July 16, 2010 Are the tensioning springs making an effective connection for the batteries? I just checked, and they seem to be pretty good. The batteries are a pretty tight fit still. Enough that it's almost troublesome to get them in and out. I suppose that's a good thing. Good idea about the master reset, I didn't even know about that. I will try it if it comes up again.
