When checking battery - garmin freezes when using "exit" button

Hi - I just got my garmin 760 and every time I check the battery capacity and hit the "exit" button the garmin logo pops up and then freezes. I always have to restart my garmin. How am I suppose to check my battery capacity without having to restart my garmin every time? Is anyone else experiencing this concern. When I go to the garmin screen it allows me to go back & next - however the exit button is the problem.

I would go to the garmin site and update the firmware. The 850's had a loop problem in the software recently so it is worth a try.

Nuvi 760 will not take charge


I don't know which of the three ways you're trying to charge - car cradle, via USB cable to a computer or via accessory AC adapter. An 18 month old 760 should still have a good battery.

If you are using your car cradle to charge consistently, use one of the other methods and allow the 760 to charge for 8 hours. Use of the car cradle can cause the 760 to stop taking a charge after a while, and switching to one of the other methods should "refresh" the internal battery. Since the AC adapter wasn't included in the box, the USB cable method is likely your only other choice. While connected to your computer, you should download & update the 760's firmware. It's fast and free - and could solve other potential issues. Get the WebUpdater software direct from Garmin.

It is also possible that the fuse in the cigar lighter plug has opened. Disassemble the the plug to check for and replace a blown fuse.

If unable to get the 760 to accept a charge, you might need to replace the battery. There are several sources for batteries - but a free call to Garmin Support should be your first move.

Please rate this reply and good luck!

Won't switch on


I had a similar situation. My 760 could not be switched on, despite a fully charged battery. The hard reset procedure (power button held for 8 seconds) fixed my problem.

MY GARMIN NUVI 760 says north on a road when it should show south


Sounds like the map needs an update if it doesn't show roads that actually exist.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760


Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

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.

My Garmin 760 can no longer be used on battery power alone. It only works with the power cord.


Hi IlliniGuy,

It sounds like the battery in your Garmin 760 has failed.

Rechargeable batteries have a limited lifespan. The amount of time you can expect between charges will decrease until the battery eventually does not hold a charge. It sounds like you have reached that point.

Although the battery pack in most MP3 players is not generally considered to be end-user serviceable you should be able to get service on the battery by contacting Garmin. If the unit is out of warranty there would normally be a fee for that service. Or, if you have experience repairing electronic devices you may be able to purchase a new battery and replace it yourself.

Hope this helps,
Ken
