i was hoping for some help with my 810.
For about the last month it has turned itself off 4 times mid riding. One minute its going fine, the next i look down and its off. It also doesnt auto-save so i basically lose the first part of my ride.
Can anyone shed some light on why this might be happening?
Battery is always charged.
I have read that it can be a loose battery contact or something to do with the software update (Currently running 5.10) but i am not sure
If anyone has had the same issue and worked it out i would love to hear it
thanks in advance

I'm sure you have checked for that.
Not in direct relation: I also own an Etrex 30 and a known issue model wide is for it to just turn off on it's own accord. No update, resetting or battery change will change it.

I found that riding with BlueTooth turned off on the bike computer fixed it completely. More than 50 trouble free rides in a row now. The strange thing is that I never use live update or anything that needs bluetooth anyway.

The Edge 810 firmware is currently 6.30.
Don't hold your breath. Garmin updates don't usually fix anything.
Luckily for me my 810 has worked fine since purchase in 2015, unlike other models I own.
The 520 is nearly ready for the truck crush fix.
