I can't get the grey ribbon clip to lock into place

With some ribbon connectors, the ribbon simply slides into the connector until seated, there is no locking action.

The centering screen is pretty much useless, that failed to incorporate an escape or exit button, the best way to end the screen is to simply hold down the power off button, then release, this should reset the GPS when you turn it back on it will go back to it's usual startup screen.

The screen shows a plus point with this message.Just click the plus symbol.It moves to somewhere else in the screen. Again press the point continuously till the point disappears. Normally six or seven times.Then the system start works.

Only see half the screen - other half blank

Anytime you have a distortion in the image on the screen, this can NOT be reolved with a reset. You have a bad LCD module. Take a look at the pictures on this page and see if one is like the problem you are having.

Somehow my unit's language changed from english to russian. I can't figure out how to fix itbecause I can't read any of the screans

That's funny!!
To be able to select the language of your choice, please follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
  3. Apply pressure in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  4. While pressing down on the screen, power on the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A large grey box with two small grey boxes with writing in them will appear.
  5. Touch the small grey box on the right.
  6. Your unit will restart automatically.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your nuvi.
Did this help? Good luck.

When we zoom in we dont see depth i certain areas; but only grey colour. What are we doing wrong?

The image on my fish finder has a ghost like worm going across the screen. It doesn't read structure at all but will give you the depth. The arrow is pointing forward and I was told to point it in. I would think it would at least still have a picture when the boat is stopped. Any advice?

Topo maps a mess of meaningless lines

Sorry for late reply. You need to select an area on your topo map prior to downloading it. For example, if you plan to go to Algonquin Bice Lake (access point 4), then you need to select the map around the area (starting from) Kearney upto the Magnetawan Lake and beyond. Mark waypoints from the put-in to the campsite on Bice Lake (best to compare of the topo and Algonquin canoeing map). Then you can click Transfer, click Send to Device (GPS 76cs should appear) to download it. On the GPS, enter the Find Waypoint button and you should be able to see those waypoints. Good luck for your next trip.

READ THIS ENTIRE POSTING BEFORE STARTING! Remove power, turn off GPS and remove memory card. To open the Tomtom One case, take out the 4 torx screws on the back. Find someone with a very stiff thumbnail and start in the center of the top of the GPS (end with the ON/OFF button). Push the stiff finernail into the center of the crack where the grey and dark plastics come together. When the fingernail has penetrated the crack, move the fingernail to either side of the GPS. At the edge of the GPS, move the fingernail back and forth until you feel a snap and the plastic clip releases. Follow this procedure for the other side on top of the GPS. Now run the fingernail down each side along the crack until the other clips release. At this point gently remove the dark colored back (contains the battery) and the grey front (contains the electronics and screen). Do not attempt to seperate the front and back unless all clips have unsnapped. Unplug and replace battery. If the battery has some charge in it, you should be able to power the GPS up and confirm that the battery has been properly installed. Re-assemble by placing the bottom of the screen into the dark plastic back then gently push the top in until all clips have snapped back together and there are no gaps where the grey and dark plastics come together. Note: If a fingernail of sufficient size and/or strength is not available, then you will have to purchase a spreader tool (thin short blade) to insert into the crack. Many GPS battery site suppliers sell the tool kits to accomplish this. Remember not to force the removal or re-assembly of the plastic case.
