Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Handheld GPS Receiver

Open Question

My Garmin Nuvi 760 turns on then off, then on and then off again.

It seems that for some reason, my Garmin nuvi 760 does not want to completely boot up. I tried to update the maps on the Garmin site using the USB exclusively for the Garmin and since then, it just doesn't want to stay on. I've tried turning it on and pressing the upper right corner, the lower right corner, you name it and I can't even get the question asking if I want to reset all data. It turns on and shows the Garmin logo, then flashes off then back on, as if to start up and then a second screen appears. again with the logo. The only difference is the small print which appears underneath the logo. Then the screen gets brighter, again, appearing as if it is going to start up and then repeats the process again. I did get it to go as far as to say "Loading maps..." for a few seconds then it turned off again. I use my Garmin on a daily basis and rely on it to go just about everywhere. HELP!!!!!!! ;-/

I had a 200 W Nuvi with the same problem. Luckily it happened with the first 3 months, so i could return it to Garmin under warranty for a free replacement

SOURCE: no voice command (nuvi 760)

Is there other sound? Have you tried listening for voice with a set of headphones plugged into the headphone jack? If you hear voice there, then your speaker is bad.

Is it possible to get inland waterway maps (IRELAND)to suit nuvi


GPS City (http://www.gpscity.ca ) sells compatible Inland lake maps. Please note Garmin does not recommend them for that unit but I am sitting at my desk with one in my Nuvi 760 and it is working fine. You will need to turn off the street maps first to see the inland lake maps. I tested it with a Garmin Pre-programmed card for Alberta Canada.

Garmin nuvi 760 ...updating bluetooth firmware


You have a software problem with your NUVI . I recommend you to reset [ restoring default factory settings ] your NUVI

To reset your NUVI , please follow one of these procedures :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.


3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
............................................................................................
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

After that you can try again with updating .

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating


Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.
