Try holding the power slide to the left and holding it there for 8 seconds. If that doesn't work, try charging it via your PC & USB cable. If that doesn't work, try a mains charger if you have one (I had to do this with mine). Good luck!

    Leslie, try removing the battery from your phone, leave it out for at least 30 seconds, then replace and turn on. This "re-boots" your phone, it might work.

My nuvi 760 will not take a charge, turn on, or do anything when plug into my computer. I do need to register it it has never be.


  1. Make sure you are sliding the power button all the way to the left.
    • If the unit does not respond, it may be that the battery is not charged.
  2. Connect the nuvi to a power source such as the USB cable and your computer.
  3. Reset the device, if the problem persists, by sliding the power button to the left and holding it in that position for 10 seconds
    • This resets the unit and prompts it to power on.

Nope! It may be the way you treat it


1) do not leave it in a hot car
2) do not plug it in and start the engine.

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped the car.


I've had this happen on three successive Nuvi 760's which I sent back, the serial numbers all suggested that they came from the same production batch..

Eventually I got a Nuvi 770 which has been fine. I understand that it's not a problem with the basic design as the 770 is really just a 760 with more memory, but it's probably a fault with a batch of components used during a production run.

This is not a DIY repair; contact Garmin even if your unit is out of warranty as they might offer a goodwill repair for free or at reduced cost.

I have the same unit. It comes with a trial subscription and then there is one time fee. The traffic will ONLY work when it is plugged into a power source in the car.

Remember to turn off the unit before you disconnect the cable. Otherwise the GPS unit will stay on and drain the power.

Nuvi 760 garmin got wet accidentally


I dropped my 760 nuvi into the dog's water bowl... (by accident of course)...

It was working but would shut off and eventually would not start.
Using the correct screwdriver with the star head, I removed the two tiny screws at he bottom back of the unit. Gently from the bottom, pry off the back.
Be careful as the battery pack and the speaker wire are still connected.

Using a hairdryer on Medium heat and high fan, air out the unit until all water/condensation is gone.

Before putting back together.... check that the unit works, and charges by connecting thusb to a computer.....

Once content it is working, snap the cover back together and screw in the 2 screws.

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.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.
