Chris,

If you have let the GPS18 run down on low power, it will go into another 
mode, you my try resetting it with a program that you can find on the Garmin 
web site. I belive this is only a problem witht he early units, the later 
units had an updated program. I had this problem with one of my GPS18 
shortly after I received it, Iwas testing to see how long the unit would run 
before the battery ran down, this is when I learned about this problem.

Even though you have updated the software, it my have not done the job, you 
may want to give the update software another try.
