I don't know if its a dead battery, or fried battter, or a short, but my device won't power up now and when I plug it in to update maps via USB, it says
USB DEVICE HAS MALFUNCTIONED, PLEASE RECONNECT AND TRY AGAIN OR REPLACE DEVICE.

It has been difficult lately when powering on, but usually the PC connection revives or wakes it up. Now nothing will turn it on.

Any tricks, resets, battery replacement?

You don't say what model you have, but, there is normally a RESET button on the GPS somewhere, Your manual should point you to it.

I know four other people whose Garmin GPS has started to malfunction. We are beginning to wonder if it is something that Garmin is doing to create this problem. It just seems to be more than a coincidence that everyone's device is messing up at the same time. I keep getting a message that says low battery and then the system goes out.

What's the message when you recharge your Garmin?
Cheers

You may try this to hold the power button for 8 sec.
The device will be back up to manufacturer setting.
