I found the solution in a Garmin forum. Hold the on/off switch off for 10 seconds and unit resets.

1) Disconnecting the nuvi from the charging cable.

2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.

Yesterday, I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 2360LMT for my grandfather. I have read the instructions on how to register it but now, I have the usb connected to the computer and the Garmin, my computer will not...



Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi 2360lmt; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. I would also try a different usb port. See if it show up in Computer or My computer in Windows 7/Vista or XP.
Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

You may benefit by going to Garmin's WebUpdater page to download & install updated firmware on your nuvi 760. It's free and all you need is a computer with a USB port and a USB cable that fits your nuvi 760 (it was included the box) The directions are clear and it is very easy to do.

Good luck!

I had to buy a new cell phone [droid] as my previous one was damaged. Although connected my NUVI 760 it will not down load the address book in the cell phone. What am I doing wrong??


Connect your 760 via USB to your computer and go to www.garmin.com and hover your mouse on "Support" and then click "Software". Select "Webupdater for Divice Software" and follow the directions to download updates for your 760. Keep in mind, not every cell has the same level of supported features, so some things that worked through your 760 on your old cell may no longer work with your new cell. If you have further question, click on "Contact Support" to get factory help.

I hope this helps!

My Garmin will not power up.


The batteries may be depleted. Try charging via USB cable connected to a computer if cigarette lighter method does not work. When connected to a computer, the device should power on but no maps will be displayed. Disconnecting from the computer should cause the 760 to reboot - if the batteries are charged.

After charging, slide and hold the power switch for 5 to 10 seconds to power on.

Garmin 760 doesn't work while charing


There is nothing wrong with your gps unit so you can relax and prepare for your trip!

While your unit is connected to the computer via usb cable as in recharging, you cannot operate it as a gps at the same time.

You will find that once the usb cable is disconnected that your unit is working normally.

Enjoy yourself.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.
