You either have to get to the safe position saved in your device, or tap in the password. It's not possible to simply reset the password, as per design, to avoid theft. The only way to actually have it resetted, is to send the unit in to Garmin among proof of purchase, and they'll be able to reset it.

My nuvi 780 only displays large freeways and no

Have you checked to make sure that the map is checked "ON"?

Please see this link:

If the map is not checked "ON", you will only be getting the Base Map information (major highways - no street detail) and you wont be able to search for places of Interest (POI's).

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.

No reset on my Garman!!!

Try holding the power switch to the left for 8 seconds, then switch on (soft reset). If that doesn't work, try a hard reset; remove the SD card, hold the bottom right corner of the screen and keep it pressed while you switch the power on. This resets all user data, but if you haven't used it yet, it won't be a problem. Good luck
