The display settings can be programmed with different brightness settings during day time or night time in auto mode. Meaning, you can have 2-3 brightness setting during the day at 50% at 7 a.m., 80% at 10 a.m. and 100% at 1 p.m.

The nuvi 700 series uses time for brightness set up when in auto mode. So don't be surprise if the brightness setting changes during day or night since brightness setting varies from individual users.

How I found this was on monday morning. Noon time sunday, I went to work and set brightness setting to 100%. At dusk, it went to night mode at 10% brightness as programmed. Monday morning turned on my 760 and check brightness setting. It was 80%. I said hmmm. I just change my settings to 100% around noon yesterday. Decided to wait until noon time yesterday and see what happens. Sure enough, display settings was now at 100%.

My findings concludes that the garmin 700 series with 2.5 software version display settings are base on time and remembers the brightness setting in that given time and can have multiple settings during the day where you have it less brighter at at 50% at 6 .am., 80% at 9 a.m., 100% at 12 noon, 60% at 3 or 4 p.m. until it goes to night mode.

This may also be possible to other models as well.
seems it might depend on what time of day you change the brightness setting as garmins' units reportedly keep that time in thier setting even thought it isnt offered.

Press the reset switch to reset the garmin, is the backlight turned off in the settings or is it possibly faulty?

    Use a external light to see what is on the screen, try to naviage in the menus and check your backlight settings.

I FOUND BLUETOOTH ON MY NUVI1350LMT BUT CANT GET ENABLE OR DISABLE MODE


In the Nuvi 1300 Bluetooth controls can be found in Tools - Settings - Bluetooth.

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
