How do I turn it off?

On my 750 I can lock the keyboard but that does not turn the unit off so unless I leave it plugged in, the battery is low every time I want to use it as a handheld devise. Is there a solution?

    Thanks. I did try that and it did not work but after receiving your comments, I have tried again and find that sometimes it works and sometimes not. If I am careful and sometimes try a couple of times, I can turn it off and I can live with that.

    Sliding swtich to off position, unit stays on. For the person that said 'read the directions' the only reference included (in the only instructions included: The Quick Start Manual) is 'resetting the nuvi' which says if the screen stops functioning, turn the nuvi off then on again. Matter of fact, the instructions are among the worst I've ever seen.

The "on" switch is a toggle. Push it to the left once, and it turns the unit on. Push it to the left again, and it turns the unit off.

Won,t turn when plugged into car.cigarete lighter has power,fuse is good in garmin unit


Check the cable that plugs into the unit itself. It possibly is damaged and will not acknowledge the GPS. Try replacing the car charger/ac adapter. Check NewPower99.com. they have a lot of inventory and great pricing. Good Lucl!

Can I recharge a garmin nuvi 750 on a computer or must I recharge in car only with clip on


you can use the computer to charge it via the USB, they do make house adapters that plug into the wall, very cheap to buy, and leaving it plugged in when not in use greatly extends the battery life. Go to ebay to get the house charger

My Garmin will not start up.


it sounds like your battery within the GPS Unit is died. You need to charge it somehow. Keep it connected to the car charger for around 30 mins and unit should turn on. Do not keep it on while it is being charged

Nuvi 750 wont turn on even when i hold the on button for a minute or more


Looks like the in-built rechargable battery is fully discharged. Try charging it for good amount of time like more than an hour through Car or computer charger. Keep the unit off to maximize charging.

I keep getting low battery message while my 750 is plugged in?


I'm still not 100% clear about why this is an issue (I'm having the same problem with my nüvi 760), but . . .

If you connect the Garmin to a power source via the USB port and leave it for a good long time (overnight) it should recharge even though the unit had been refusing to accept a charge through the normal power cord.

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.

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
