You can delete an old map by connecting the unit up to your PC, using a USB to mini-USB cable. Once the Nuvi shows up as a valid drive letter in windows, double click on the drive and then go to the Garmin directory. Look for the file named gmapprom.img. It should be a file near 1 GB. Right click on the file and select delete.

This will delete the map. Warning, once you do this, your GPS will no longer function and you will need to install a new map.

Before you delete it, always make a backup of the map file on your PC.

Once you are finished, be sure to SAFELY remove the drive in Windows BEFORE you remove the USB cable.

SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

SOURCE: Transfer "favorites" from Garmin Nuvi 660 to 765T

I had the same problem. I called Garmin and the lady said if I had the software Map Source or something, that can do the trick, but the funny thing is you have to buy the software with Map Updates, or you get the software when you buy a new unit, and register the unit within 60 days of first satellite reception. Though I searched internet and someone said to copy a certain file/folder or I'd rather just copy the whole GPS folders and that might do the trick. You are right, this is a pain in the rear end.

SOURCE: looking for Map upgrades for Garmin Nuvi GPS

I've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi® 255W Car GPS Receiver. Problem: Reboots during Map

The simple way is to send the unit to Garmin they will load the maps for free.
If you keep trying - try this -

With your thumb in the lower right corner of the screen - pushing in - like there is an X there - [ push with your thumb before you turn it on] Turn it on -
when this screen comes up - push YES -

then try your maps.
If they do not load on your pc [ which must have the unit hooked up and a legit copy of the newest maps ] then send the unit to Garmin. They will load your maps for you FREE. 86278d7.jpg

I tried to update my garmin. The screen doesnt move (or continue to download) I allowed for block ups.


You need to download and install the Garmin WebUpdater and Garmin Communicator Plugin both available from Garmin's website onto your computer. This allows updates to be installed directly to the 765T and provides the necessay USB drivers as well. The 765T must be connected to your computer when performing all updates or upgrades.

You may need to create a MyGarmin account and register your Nuvi 765T.

Resetting the 765T: with the unit off, press your thumb or finger in the lower right corner of the screen while turning the 765T on. This will clear all user data, base map software will remain intact. Connect 765T to computer and proceed with the Garmin WebUpdater.

Resetting the Garmin Nuvi 765T: Press and hold your thumb or finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen while powering the unit on. This will erase all USER data, base and detailed maps will remain intact.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi 765T to your computer via USB.
Download Garmin's Communicator plugin and WebUpdater, both applications can be downloaded from their site. By doing so, this will load the necessary USB drivers to your computer, allowing the Garmin Nuvi to communicate and update firmware and software via the plugin and WebUpdater.

On Vista, the Nuvi 765T appears as Garmin Nuvi without the "T" as well, (a blue triangular icon also appears) it does not affect the ability to transfer files or explore the device in any way. If you load an SD card into the Nuvi 765T, it will appear as a removeable disk and assign it a drive letter, in my case H:

Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

Ensure that the battery is fully charged via the battery strength icon, prior to aquiring satellites.
