I have a WT5...

I have a WT5 and I have a picture a round circle, perhaps the glob and beside it appears to be a magnifying glass, neither of which I can remove or for that matter even turn off the GPS, any suggestions

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the brand and model of the GPS?

Golf buddy WT5

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

I used it at a golf course and didn't turn it off when i left the course and when i went to charge it when i got home this is what i found

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I tried to charge it , also tried to turn it off but nothing that i try works

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that i can think of
