I have the same unit. It comes with a trial subscription and then there is one time fee. The traffic will ONLY work when it is plugged into a power source in the car.

Remember to turn off the unit before you disconnect the cable. Otherwise the GPS unit will stay on and drain the power.

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.

GarminNUVI 265wt gps gp gn How would enable my gps traffic


You need to subscribe to the Traffic , also you need to have the traffic cord to receive traffic reports. Other than that it should work.

You can go to the www.MyGarmin.com site and subscribe, be advised that if you had a trail version of the Traffic report in will end in 30 days from the registraion date of your garmin.

Love my Nuvi 760

I bought the Nuvi 1490 which should have come with live traffic. It has never worked and I can't add it to my GPS


This is from Garmin's website, www.garmin.com, regarding the Nuvi 1490T. If you haven't already done so, you might want to check and make sure you are in an area that does receive traffic coverage.

¹Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas. See www.navteq.com/rdstraffic for traffic coverage areas and www.garmin.com/traffic/fm/navteq.html for program License Agreement containing complete terms and conditions.

Are there free road info download available


No. If you want usefully updated maps, then you have to pay for them. Garmin do offer a "lifetime" maps subscription, but it's only for the lifetime of your product: given that most Garmin SatNav units don't last long enough to benefit from more than a couple of years worth of updates it's usually cheaper to buy the single update option, although the lifetime subscription gives you four updates per year and one-off is just a single annual update.

If your unit also needs updated traffic and camera alerts then it can be cheaper to buy a new satnav.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 760. The end cap which screws in and holds the fuse in for the traffic receiver power cord is broken. Anyone knows where I can get a replacement part without buying another power...


This is a known problem with the 760 traffic receiver power cords. Call Garmin Customer Service (you may stay on hold for 20 minutes or so). When someone answers, explain the problem and they will most likely send you a replacement screw cap and fuse assembly for free.
