Try testing out a few other stations to see if that makes a difference. for the navigation part, you want to be sure you have the 2009 map update for one. Also under "avoidances" there could be a few options checked in there that would mess with your navigation ex: avoid highways, u-turns, interstates, etc

I cannot update the maps in my garmin nuvi 760. It extracts and then fails saying that it cannot connect to the garmin server or something like that.


You need to be connected to the internet to install the maps so the program can connect to the garmin website. If you're not connected that's the problem. If you were connected and still couldn't install the map try browsing to www.garmin.com and see if it's working. The website can be impossible to navigate sometimes. Maybe it's because they're working on the site or maybe it can't handle the amount of traffic. When you can navigate easily try installing the map again.

The Nuvi 760 is not designed for commercial vehicles. Garmin does sell units that are, like the Nuvi 465T. According to their website, www.garmin.com, the Nuvi 465T offers the following:

Ease your way down the highway with the nüvi 465T – our first nüvi designed specifically for the over-the-road trucking industry. Featuring a preloaded NTTS Breakdown Directory, specialized routing options throughout the lower 48 states and truck friendly points of interest, this full-featured navigator was made for life on the road. The nüvi 465T also lets you create custom vehicle profiles tailored to what you’re driving and what you’re hauling. It’s convenience created with over-the-road drivers in mind.
Navigate With Confidence
The nüvi 465T is the first navigation device to provide locations in the National Truck and Trailer Services (NTTS) Breakdown Directory to its trucking-relevant points of interest. The NTTS Breakdown Directory is the most comprehensive guide to semi-truck repair facilities nationwide – including those offering 24-hour road service.

More info is available from Garmin.

I want to listen to the radio while using Garmin nuvi 750


Hi, go to Tools, Volume, then select FM Trans and switch it on. Tune your car radio to a wavelength which has no signal, just background static noise, note the wavelength and adjust the Nuvi screen to the same wavelength.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.
