Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped the car.

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped on a road trip and got out of the car. When we came back to the car, we had a blank screen and the unit would not respond to switching power on or off.

I've had this happen on three successive Nuvi 760's which I sent back, the serial numbers all suggested that they came from the same production batch..

Eventually I got a Nuvi 770 which has been fine. I understand that it's not a problem with the basic design as the 770 is really just a 760 with more memory, but it's probably a fault with a batch of components used during a production run.

This is not a DIY repair; contact Garmin even if your unit is out of warranty as they might offer a goodwill repair for free or at reduced cost.

Details on how to update your garmin nuvi satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
If the map is only 6 months old updating it might or might not solve the problem unless these are recent changes to the roads in your area. Map errors should be reported to Navteq, who make the maps for garmin satnavs at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/ . While this won't solve your problem for your trip at least if you find an unmapped change to the road and have to divert the satnav will pick up your change and redirect you.

Set the fastest route. The shortest route will take you off motorways and up narrower roads. Garmin satnavs know the difference between fastest and shortest.

Are your maps updated?

If so the road you on a new road that hasn't been programed into the maps yet?

Could be a few things going on, lost satelite, or a new road.... word to the wise Always carry a road map in your vehicle, GPS is a great tool but not always 100% right especialy if your on a new road, Maps are updated I believe every 6 months or more.

The distance for the trip in my favorite is wrong.


Sounds like you might have "off road" selected for your navigation preference. Shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, or great circle for GPS units. As the crow flies will be shorter than a road route.

Garmin 350 road disappears


You are in an area that the map does not support. If this is a new construction or street, highway etc it has not been updated on your map loaded on the device. You can check with Garmins website to see if a map update is available. If not you will have to wait until it is updated and released by Garmin.

Hope this helps

Garmin nuvi 260w not operating while plugged in


If you are trying to use your unit in the car via the USB port and not the supplied cable, it will not work. You must use the bracket that came with the unit or the specific charger that came with the unit. The pins in the Garmin USB charger only use two pins whereas a regular charge cable uses 4.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.

Shortest Route and Fastest Route Garmin Nuvi 200


The problem could be in your avoidance settings. I know when I was in Delaware, a 1/2 hour trip turned out to be a 3 hour detour because I had set to avoid highways.

In Garmin, if it's checked, it means AVOID. I know the documentation isn't clear but I've learned from experience (trial & error).

Sometimes it happens. Garmin isn't perfect but it beats looking at a map most of the time.

Garmin not recognising roads


Simulation is where it simulates where your trip will take you. Enter a new destination and don't select simulate trip.
