Sometimes my Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT just freezes and I can't get it to unfreeze. When it does this none of the buttons work and I can't turn it off. Other times it will work just fine. I thought it was the battery but that wasn't the problem because I ordered a new battery and had the same problem. It has always worked just fine before all this started happening.
