Step 1: Plug your Garmin 765 into your computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix) with a USB cable. Step 2: Navigate to the drive named GARMIN (varies by type of computer you have). Step 3: Create a folder in the root for the GARMIN drive called MP3 (in all caps, just like the JPEG folder). Step 4: Copy your MP3 files into this folder. Step 5: Eject the GARMIN drive like any other USB drive. Step 6: Unplug the USB cable as the 765 starts-up. Step 7: Click Menu > Tools > Media Player > Browse Step 8: Enjoy your music!

I still cannot upload my own jpeg photos into my Garmin 255. Anyone know how to do this without using the memory card? Thanks! -bipperino


Yes, it's done the same way as adding music files to Nuvi's that have a MP3 player. Please see this link, however paste the pictures (.jpg format) into the existing JPEG folder already on your Nuvi that contains pictures installed by the factory.

Will my itunes music library play on my Garmin nuvi 760? I dragged and downloaded my itunes music library onto my nuvi 760. When I hooked it up this morning to use it in my car it kept saying it was...


Your Garmin only supports MP3 files and iTunes is all MP4. The Best way to convert them is with "Real Player sp" Which is probably on your computer already or downlaod it for free. Open the music library and right click on the centre. There you will see "Converter" Select convert to MP3. Don't open iTunes. Instead go through; Start, my music, iTunes, library. This way you can drag a whole album into the converter. Plug your Garmin in with the USB cable and go through; Start, my computer, storage device H. At the bottom of the converter you can select where to send the converted files. Select the device H. Now press start and let it do it's thing. When it's finished you can see the old files in MP4 format with the new files in MP3 format listed under. Drag and drop is only a copy. You can delete all these files after to keep it tidy. All the original stuff is still safe and you Garmin should now have music on it. Try it with a small tune first to test. Best of luck. Regards Chris4fingers

Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it


I have a 660, and it works fine from the sd card. Make sure the files are .mp3 and that you toggle the source from the mp3 player screen. Can you see the files in browse mode ?

You will have to convert them to MP3 format and then load them onto your NUVI.

How do download music to a garmin


The music must be in a MP3 format with an .mp3 extension on each file. You need a USB cable to connect your Nuvi to your PC. Once you have the files on your PC, just copy and paste them onto your Nuvi directory in the MP3 folder.

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350


The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

It should work the way other Garmin units work. Plug the unit into the computer via the USB cable. The computer should recognize the unit as a mass storage device. Click on the Garmin (it should be shown under your storage devices) and you should see a folder marked MP3. Drag and drop the music files you want into this folder, then disconnect the unit (safely, of course). That should do it.

Audiobooks on a Garmin Nuvi 650 GPS


I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.
