You need to make sure your unit is set for decimal degrees. It's probably set for a different format.

Cant find how to manually input cordinates

First create a waypoint, and then modify it. Hold down the enter button for two seconds (the thumb-toggle on the face of the unit). This opens a screen with a number at the top and coordinates of your current location below. Once you've grabbed the coordinates you can change the name and the coordinates and the name and save it as a waypoint. Use the thumb-toggle to bring up number pads and letter pads for each line.

Cannot find gps cordinates

Actually some GPS units do not show coordinates. Make sure you have one that does. A lot of the early Garmin units didn't have coordinates or a way to enter new ones.

I just purchased a Garmin Language Guide SD Card 010-10672-00. I inserted the smaller chip into the SD adapter and inserted the unit into my Nuvi 760 which is already loaded with a sample of the Oxford...

First do a back up of all your GPS data.
Then erase the lex pkg on the Garmin (the limited version that came free)
Then insert your language sd card it should ask you if you want to load the language pkg
to the garmin say yes then remove the card and it should all work ...
