Hi,

There could be two (2) possible reasons for the Nuvi 770 to mute:

  • inadvertently muted;
  • firmware glitch.
If the unit was accidentally muted, go to Menu, touch Volume to adjust Master Volume; or Tools, Settings, Volume, Restore.

If the unit has a system glitch, cycle ON/OFF or "Slide the Power Key to the Left and hold for 8 seconds. Turn the Nuvi back on.

If all else fails, you may need to reload the firmware or seek the assistance of Garmin.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Try to reset the nuvi and also check your settings that you have voice enabled / or notifications.

    Turn the nuvi ON. Slide the power key to the left and hold it for about 10 seconds documents say 8 seconds, then the nuvi back on. 


    Let me know how it goes.

I want to leave Michigan and go to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am unable to program this into my Garmin nuvi 1300. Any suggestions?


You will need to enter an address in Toronto for it to be able to route. Try "1 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario". That will take you to downtown Toronto.

Screen froze and it won't turn off


Hmmm. tricky. It'll eventually run flat but connect it to the computer and use Garmin WebUpdater (free download from Garmin) to check the software version - it may reinstall the software.

My nuvi 750 shows a white screen only


You are going to have to send it in to manufacturer for a software re-flash.. Just a bug that some phones get randomly. It is annoying, I have had this myself but that is the only cure.

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped the car.


I've had this happen on three successive Nuvi 760's which I sent back, the serial numbers all suggested that they came from the same production batch..

Eventually I got a Nuvi 770 which has been fine. I understand that it's not a problem with the basic design as the 770 is really just a 760 with more memory, but it's probably a fault with a batch of components used during a production run.

This is not a DIY repair; contact Garmin even if your unit is out of warranty as they might offer a goodwill repair for free or at reduced cost.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating


Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.

When booted up, I get a Map Update Notice.


I solved this problem by pressing my finger where the OK button is before I turn the nuvi on. That worked for me,

Garmin 750 - 90 days old


Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.
