This solution works for more than the 760. i think it will work for all 6xx and 7xx series.
a simple solution to convert Google maps to Garmin routes and is found here:
In essence, you create your route in Google maps and then click the recommended url bookmark.
Save the GPX file to the Garmin device and from "My Data" (under Tools) convert the file to a route. You are done.

I had the same problem with a 1300 unit and a car charger. After holding power button for 10 seconds it would begin to start, but get stuck while saying "Loading Maps." and then it would shut off again.
I fixed it by plugging the unit into a computer USB port. It then did it's PC connection startup as usual, which leaves a connection icon on the screen. I gave it a minute and then unplugged it from the PC. It then restarted and booted up properly.
Hope this helps.

There's a solution to your problem at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
The article deals with all possible reasons for there being no map data available but if your satnav is working other than that it may be just that the map is not selected. If you can get into the menus first try selecting the map by
then SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings menu
Press MAP and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map name should be there and a box with a tick beside the name.
If the box is not ticked press on the map name and it will cause the tick to appear. This might solve the problem. If not the map is probably locked. You'll find details of how to unlock the map at the above link.

Your map file may be corrupt. You can go to the Garmin website where you registered your unit, and download the same map. If you want to update to a newer map you can do that as well. To ensure that you have the correct map you will have to register your unit if you haven't already done so. Go to the following link:
You will have to first make sure that your GPS is attached to your computer with the black USB cable that came with your unit. Plug the smaller end into the back of the unit and the larger end into one of your USB ports. The GPS will automatically power on. You will see a graphic on the bottom of your screen that looks like a GPS connected to a computer. A line will appear halfway up the screen which will start as a white line and then change to a green one. Once that is done you can register at the above site. The website will attempt to connect to your GPS so that it can read your model and serial numbers. It will then show you which maps are available for you.
