It should turn off if you hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. If that doesn't correct the problem, let me know what the model number of your Garmin.

That was my first problem. I got it to turn off on my own., so it turned on but now it won't stay on. I've tried turning on and holding the little msg that's on the left screen at the bottom, but that doesn't work either. I wrote all this on my site to you. Please review that one.

Does the unit stay on if you plug it into power?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Once it's charged will it stay on?
Expert:  simitpatel replied 6 years ago.
Assuming there's nothing wrong with the battery, and it stays on whlie plugged in, then it will stay on using the battery. But if it doesn't stay on when using the battery, but does stay on when plugged in, then the battery will need to be replaced.
