Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Try holding down the power button for 20 seconds.

If it turns Off, leave it Off for 20 minutes. Try again after that.

If it doesn't work after that, I will have further suggestions.

When you know what happened, please let me know. Thanks.

It started to work on the 5 th hole. I do not find it responsive to commands. It is hard to turn off. Not happy
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry to hear that. Other things may be tried, or be applicable to the case.

Another question please:

- How old is the Garmin device in question?

- have you updated it lately? if not, I will suggest a means to update it, in detail.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just bought it two weeks ago
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

OK. Now that is serious.

Your Garmin has just plain got to be defective from the store or from the vendor, that sold it to you.

I would advise you to pack it up in the original packaging and return it ASAP as defective, for a return-exchange or a return-and-refund, if it is still within the store or vendor's return-exchange period.

If it is not, let me know, and I will advise you further.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

Thanks will go

If the return-exchange or return-refund period is expired, then you will need to send it to Garmin instead.

That can be done (in order to get free-of-charge servicing under warranty) by way of this page:

and the instructions on that page just above the 'Online Auction Purchases' heading, and also you may use the Request A Repair Online link to start the process.
