Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

Ensure that the battery is fully charged via the battery strength icon, prior to aquiring satellites.

To reset the 765T: Hold finger or thumb on lower right hand corner of screen while powering the unit on from the off position. This will erase all user data.

Garmin nuvi 1400. how can i cut the power off without touching the switch on top.


Plug in the charger and connect it to your car's cigarette lighter socket with the car running. When you unplug it it will give you a message saying that the power has been disconnected and it's shutting down. It will give you the option to get it to stay on or shut down and if you select neither it will shut down.

How do you shut the garmin nuvi 200 down I can't get it to shut off


Plug it to your power charger (connected to the el-net, of course). After the map loading has completed and you can start using it, unplug from power. A dialog box will pop up and ask you either to turn it off or to continue using it on. Choose to turn it off.

You will not be able to turn it completely off as long as it's connected to either a computer or a charger.

or you on/off push button is not working and needs to be repaired.

On my nuvi 200 the push button is a bit loose, and it easly turns on when I carry it in my pocket. Some adhecive tape will keep the button in place.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 255W and the screen will not work


it could be your digitizer or it could be locked up...try turning it on, then hold the slide switch to turn it off for about 15 seconds, then power it back on...if that fails, with the unit off, press and hold the lower right corner of the screen and then slide the power switch toward the on position and you should see a screen asking if you want to erase all personal data (note: this will erase al your favorites) let go of screen and select yes and follow on screen instructions...

if none of those solutions work, download the web updater and see if you have the latest updates.

Garmin Web Updater HERE

if all the above fail..i would say you need a digitizer ...there about 20-30 on ebay



let me know if you need further help

While driving my Garmin will just shut down. It acts like a cord is not plugged in tightly but they are. Have to restart & call up recent address to keep going. I'm on vacation so I don't have any ID...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.
