    First go to show GPS status and press configure, ( GPS staus is in the change preferences menu)

    Press configure.

    The correct setting for TOMTOM software are




    sellect other cable GPS, leave baud rate at 4800 and then GPS on Navigator is the com port

    GPS only works outdoors and you need to go outside to get a signal, it will take about 4 mins max to get a signal.

Mt nuvi 3750 can not be found by 3 computors, says no devise found ? what could my problem be ? 2 pc's with win 7 , one with win xp, all i want to do is update my garmin..


Try a different USB cable.

The likelihood that 3 computers all have a failed USB ports is pretty slim. Using the same USB cable to connect the 3750 to them however throws suspicion to a defective USB cable. If it still doesn't work with a different cable - then it could be the 3750. Before doing anything else, check it out with the new cable on several computers. If it still fails to connect, contact Garmin Support.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I have nuvi 1490TV and when i can't connect with the ecoroute HD on my Seat Ibiza. The year of manufacturing is 1997, cam this be a problem?


I had trouble connecting to my 1490 as well. When I tried to connect, I kept getting a message about being unable to find the unit.
This solved the problem for me. Go into the Bluetooth settings on your GPS unit. Click "Restore" on the GPS Bluetooth settings.
After restoring the GPS Bluetooth settings, I was able to connect to the Ecoroute HD on the next attempt.

Is there free updates for the Nuvi 750? If so How do you do it?


Garmin gives you 60 days from the purchase date to get one free update for your map. They supply you with a USB cable that you will need to connect to your GPS and a computer. Go to the Garmin website and choose Support / Update Map. The website will automatically read your model and serial number and then let you know if your need and are eligible for their latest update. The file will be downloaded to your computer. The same webpage will describe the steps necessary to run the update to your GPS.

No instructions. please help


It's a ball and socket device. You have to force the suction cup ball device into the socket. It'll pop, and you know it's in there. By the way once it's in, it relies on friction to keep it from moving so do not add any lubricant to facilitate the joining of the two pieces.

Can't get to bluetooth setting on my garmin nuvi 750


The Nuvi 750 does not have Bluetooth capabilities. Simply put, there is no way to connect your phone with the Nuvi 750 via Bluetooth.
