This one almost slipped under our radar, but a recent firmware update to Garmin nuvi 7x5 series, nuvi 800 series, nuvi 8x5 series, zumo 660, GPSMAP 620 and GPSMAP 640 GPS devices caused the units to shutdown, lose satellite reception, or become locked in a firmware update loop.

Garmin has released a free firmware update for the affected devices that should fix these issues. For more info on how to update your unit, check the Garmin Blog.
