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.
