Possible bad battery---are you charging with the lighter plug in the vehicle or what? That plug it uses for the lighter will have a fuse inside it in most cases.........

My garmin nuvi 750's touch screen doesn't respond when touched. The unit powers on ok, but I can't use it...


There may be something wrong with the screen. I would suggest either buying a new screen and replacing it yourself or having a professional install a new screen.

It almost makes more sense to simply purchase a new model.

Unable to unlock Nuvi 780 screen. The slideing button on the top left dosen't work, it lost the grip and just move on either direction with out any action. Please help


Try to remove the battery and re insert it back in to see if it will work. Or hold down the power on/off for about 15 seconds, that should do the job.


If that does not do it, then you have to calibrate the screen. To calibrate the screen, follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi.
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears(white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
That should do the job for you. hope this helps.

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.

Hi,

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.
To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.


You should be good now

Regards
Richard.

Screen is black


Most likely you will need to do a re-set. Just slide the power switch to the left for 8 seconds. It should then re-boot. It this doesn't work, you've got more serious problems.

Garmin NUVI 660 BlueTooth


I had the same problem, and this is how I fixed it. Now it's working fine.


Thank you for contacting Garmin International,

If you are currently running the most current version of bluetooth software, and you are still seeing issues where your compatible phone is still not connecting properly, please try the below procedure, which will reinstall the version of bluetooth you have downloaded in case there was any corruption during the transfer or installation of the bluetooth version.

1. Power the unit on

2. Touch View Map

3. Touch the ETA/Speed button in the bottom left hand corner.

4. press and hold your finger over the speedometer for 10-15 seconds until a new screen appears.

5. Touch next at the bottom of the screen until the top blue banner reads Bluetooth Status.

6. Touch UPDT P, then Touch yes.

7. At this point the unit should go to a page that says Updating Bluetooth Firmware, allow this to finish, once finished, press quit, then press and hold the back button. At this point, go back through and try to connect your Bluetooth device again.
