    I have the same problem. The screen went to saying "loading maps", then wouldn't load. I unplugged the unit. When I plugged it back in, it would not turn on.

Hi, Try to reset by holding the 'On' button. After the reset if the Map is not loading in the background then it may be corrupted. If you can connect the GPS to the computer then you can call the Garmin support and get the MAPS which you can eventually load. If the GPS is not getting connected to computer then you need to send it to Garmin to fix it. Hope it is under warranty.
Samething happened to me. Garmin service is wonderful, they replaced it..

The 780 garmin gives directions such as turn left or right but is not giving the names of the street to turn on


does your unit state that it should be "Text to Speak" if not then it is not ment to, if it should then the map may not be correct to support it, or you need a software update, free from www.garmin.com, failing that the function mey be switched off

Garmani nuvi 780 freezes on "updating bluetooth firmware 0%" when turned on


Worked for me but not sure why, I had the same problem of freezing when updating Bluetooth firmware on a Nuvi 770. I chose to reset all user data (press lower tight hand of touch screen while powering on) and next reboot it updated firmware sucesfully. No idea why this worked.

Nuvi 780 stuck in "loading maps"


On the back of the unit there should be a reset button, press this in till the unit starts to turn on again.
