I've lately noticed my 450 likes to lock-up (freeze dead) ever once in awhile. It's normally after a quick stop, and the another. But, I have seen it freeze after an overnight stop.

So, I've been leaving it on it's own battery power, if I'm just gonna be in a store for awhile.

There's two buttons you can hold to reset and get it back on.

Anybody else experiencing this?

I have had this problem, too. Mine is hard wired on accessory. When I shut the bike of I get a prompt to continue on battery power yes/no. I say YES so it tracts my total time, moving and stopped.
But my main reason to say yes is, if I let it shut off by itself or answer NO, it locks up. It won't reboot using the buttons as described in the manual. I've had to remove the battery to get it to reboot. I say YES to the prompt and then shut it off manually and have no problem with restarting it. I finally emailed Garmin about the problem. There was a software update to version 4.5 which I downloaded and installed and it seems to be working ok now.

Thanks. I checked my SW version (is 4.50) so, I'll e-mail them.
