A file might have corrupted on the system.

If you uploaded some POI file just before the crash, it might be a defective POI database. You can delete it by booting in test mode (turn device off, press on the lower left corner, keeping pressed turn the device on, wait for the test menu to appear. If the unit stays on, you can connect it to a computer and see its memory, locating the poi.gpi file in the POI folder. Move it on your computer (just to have a backup; one never knows), safely remove and disconnect the USB device from the PC and power cycle the Nuvi).

Assuming it's not the POI, you will have to perform the Firmware Restore on your device (or you might install the newest firmware from Garmin, as well). When in Test Mode (see above), the Garmin Web Updater function should work: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Also, you may try a Master Reset:

If you turn the unit off, wait about ten seconds and turn it back on, yes, it should go back to the "Enter PIN" screen. If, however, you turn it off then immediately turn it back on it will continue to tell you to return to the security location.

My 765 cut off and will not turn back on.


Garmin has a major software bug with all of the 7X5 units. My unit just got back from service. If it will not power up you will have to contact Garmin for a RMA number and send it back to them.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

Cheers
