The only thing that all those reports have in common is that it happens near a roundabout, the device is dying slowly, turning it back on will make it work again.

I have roundabouts nearly at the front of my home, so I'm routing
through it nearly every day (in cycle mode). But I never saw any crash 
in the near of a roundabout on my GPSMap 62 with my own maps.
I think I had this year only one crash of my 62, and here I'm not
sure if the fault was not a broken battery.
