Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

When I attach my garmin nuvi 760 to the car mount and plug it in the car charger it will not power off and on when the car turns off and on. For example if I turn the car off the garmin continues to charge being fully powered. When I turn the car on if the garmin is off it will not turn on without manually doing so.

This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.

My car charger will not charge battery in garmin Nuvi 760


The fuse may be gone in the charger. There's a ring, near the silver tip, of the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter. If you unscrew the ring the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the silver tip as it may fall out. Replace the fuse and it may solve the problem.

Garmin won't come on


plug it in to the wall charger or car charger for about 4 hours, then slide and hold power button for up to 15 seconds till it starts.



if that fails, unplug the nuvi then press and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen until you see the message " Do you really want to erase all user data?" remove your finger from the screen and select YES. (this will erase all your saved data) this should reset your nuvi to the factory settings.


use the web updater to update your nuvi once you get it started again.

you can get it HERE

let me know if you need further help.

I have a Garmin 760 did not come with a ac


The AC charger plugs into the mini-USB port on the bottom of the unit. The term AC is somewhat misleading as the AC charger plugs into an AC outlet but provides +5VDC to charge the units internal 3.7VDC battery.

You can purchase an OEM AC charger here:

My garmin 750 gps will not turn on when plugged into power source


A dead battery will cause the unit not to turn on, but it should turn on if connected to an external power source like an AC wall charger or DC car charger.

I'm not sure where I should plug the recharger.


The charger plugs into the mount. You should be able to download the manual in English from the Garmin website.

New Nuvi 760 that won't work


Using the PC to charge a Nuvi is not the correct way to charge. Use either the AC wall charger or DC car charger. Many PC USB ports can not supply enough current to charge a Nuvi.

Garmin car charger


There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps
