Many problems have been reported when the Batteries in the X10 unit have been depleted. The most common is the refusal of the X10 to restart.  Here is the solution.

In most cases, the user has been using rechargeable batteries and has failed to remove them from the unit before storing.  However, the reported problem will also occur with primary batteries.  The first warning is not to do this.  In fact, after use the batteries should be removed prevented another problem of battery corrosion.

We have constantly advised members to always attach your GPS to your PC and backup up ALL the files on the internal memory.

This is important because if you do have a problem like the one being discussed the ONLY solution is the recopy your backed up file over to the internal memory.

The problem being discussed here is the case where the some of the files in the internal memory have been corrupted and must be replaced.

In most cases, reinstalled the firmware will not solve this problem.
