Freezing Vista HCx
What's with my Vista HCx freezing up all the time? Am I missing something in the setup or is this a bad unit? Hope it's not a feature.
I'd try updating the firmware to the latest. If still experiencing trouble, try a "hard reset" (will lose all data on unit, so download first):

Thanks, I'll try that... wow, that's not an easy button maneuver to perform... wtf... aghh... okay, I got it.

Time will tell.
Does it freeze (ie, screen stops changing, no input) or turn off?
Either way, I mountain bike with mine all the time and it does neither.
Motionbased on the other hand, seems to not be accepting my uploads today.
The screen stops changing and button input does nothing. When turned off it lags a bit before shutting off.

I have been using usgs topo map images in the gps, (see MOAGU thread) wondered if that could be causing the freezing.
