Question about Garmin nuvi 780 GPS

1 Answer

No reset on my Garman!!!

I guess I have an older version of the 780 nuvi GPS and I luv it. BUT.
My X-girlfreind locked me out of my garmin. Someone any other things to try ? Or maybe tell me were I can get a screw driver to fit those damn little screws on the back.

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

The Garman works when out of the vehicle but when in the vehicle the Garman reads "cannot detect satellite"


try reseting the unit - the reset button is under the antenna.Keep in mind that satellite acquisition is only possible outdoors or in a vehicle. Last case scenario try a hard reset (will erase all your saved places and bookmarks) - hold your finger on the upper right corner of the nuvi's screen while turning on the nuvi keep your finger pressed until the popup window appears - touch yes to clear all user data.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

How do I reset the Garmin 1300t? It is locked up


turn it off and unplug it from power, then press and hold the lower right corner of the screen, then power it on. when it comes on release the power button and you will see a message similar to: do you really want to erase all your data? YES, release your finger when you see that message, then follow the on screen prompts.
