Issues with Garmin 64st - menu does not match the manual - NiMH Battery pack gives 8 minutes of life

I am having a number of issues with the Garmin 64st.

The primary issue is that the menu does not match the manual. For example, there is no "Create a Route" item under the Route Planner. There does not seem to be a "Create a Route" item anywhere in the menu.

It has an incredibly tough time locating satellites in areas where other GPS units pick them up easily.

Lastly after purchasing the recommended NiMH battery pack and charging over night, the Garmin 64st drains the batter in 8 minutes or less.

    If it's really charging overnight I would think you have a faulty battery pack so return it. As for route planner, are you sure you're in Route Planner and not Routes?
