Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.

Update file on garmin corrupted


Same happened to my Garmin Nuvi 760, power failed during upload. Files corrupted. Garmin could not locate it with Sat. Told me to trash it and they would give me $70 towards purchase of a new one, which would not fit in my cars receiver. My solution was to purchase a used one that had a good Garmin File folder. I copied the folder to my pc. It was important to remove the device file from the copied folder. I then formatted my corrupted 760. Then copied the folder from my pc into the formatted 760. Next step was to use Garmin Express to replace the missing device file, do the updates, and reinstall the maps. Product code to unlock maps was inside the rear plastic housing to unlock the maps. Whole process took about 4 hours and it works like new now.

How do I save a new waypoint on my garmin 76cx?


Hi!

From your User's Manual Page 7:

You can create waypoints using three methods. Press the Enter/Mark key while at a location, create a waypoint on the Map page or you can manually enter lat/lon coordinates.

TO MARK YOUR CURRENT LOCATION
Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key until the Mark Waypoint page appears. A default three-digit name and symbol will be assigned to the new waypoint. To accept the waypoint with the default information, simply select OK.
To change any information, select the appropriate field and press ENTER to open the on-screen keypad. After entering and confirming the information you wish to use for the waypoint, select OK.

CREATING WAYPOINTS USING THE MAP
On the MAP page, use the ROCKER to move the pointer to the map item you wish to mark.
Press and QUICKLY release ENTER/MARK to capture the pointer location and open the information page for the map item.
Select SAVE. If there is no information for this point, a prompt will appear saying "No map information at this point. Do you want to create a user waypoint here?". Select YES.

If you require a User's Manual, you can view/download it from:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPSMAP76Cx_OwnersManual.pdf

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

Unlock gps 760 garmin ilost the 4 pin number


The only way to do it is to go to the location you set as "home" in the GPS. When you are at that location, the GPS will not ask you for a PIN and you can then go in and change the PIN.

If you don't know what the home location is, you'll need to contact Garmin http://www.garmin.com

There are so many of these being stolen from vehicles, the PIN is designed to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

I forget my password. Garmin nuvi 760


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.
