    etrex venture Cx shutting off

    Ive had this Etrex Venture Cx for just over a year and up until yesterday its worked flawlessly. Yesterday on our ride it kept just shutting off. I tried a different set of batteries and we also put some paper in with them to keep the batteries for maybe coming loose or something. Neither helped. It cut out again even before we left the parking lot this morning as well as a number of time on the ride. I checked the settings and it was on normal not battery saving or whatever. i tried that setting just to see if a change would do anything, no help.
    The only thing I did do was down load some maps to it from mapsource, a set of disks my buddy brought out, no the ones ive used in the past.
    Any ideas on what could have happend and/or what i can do to get her working right again?

    Sounds like a power connection problem somewhere between the battery compartment and the electronics. Contact Garmin, they have the best customer service I have experienced.
