Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Car GPS Receiver

3 Answers

My Garmin Nuvi 260 is frozen on the Garmin screen

I received a new Garmin the other day directly from garmin that replaced my old one. I used it one day and it worked fine. I tried using it the next day in my car and the Garmin only loads to the black "Garmin" screen when it first turns on. I disconnected the unit from the charger after a couple of minutes and the Garmin screen is still on, so it is frozen, won't turn off or anything. What can I do?

    The Garmin won't do anything beyond showing the opening screen. I've already tried doing a "hard" reboot, holding down the on button for periods of 30 seconds, 1 minute, and more.

With the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Did you try a hard reset ? You have to hold the top left or top bottom corner of the touch screen as you turn it on for 10sec. If that doesn't help, your software may be corrupt and you need a firmwarerestor. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

Garmin gps doesn't work when charging with cigarette charger. Instead of the GPS to Navigate it rather shows like there's a data transfer.


Hello,

The proper vehicle power cables for the Garmin nuvi 260 are part numbers 010-10723-06 or 010-11478-03.
The use of improper cables will cause the nuvi to go into mass storage.
You may also want to contact Garmin Support for assistance.

Screen frozen up on loading maps


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

My brand new Garmin Nuvi 1300 is frozen on the first screen which shows just the Garmin name, any ideas how to get beyond this screen image?


try reset by holding down finger on bottom right hand corner of screen before you power up, and go to www.garmin.com for software update, failing that take back to seller if under 12months old

Nuvi 260 question


Yes it does.
You would have to pay for the Map
Yes, it can give directions in Spanish
You'll have to download that language (free) from Garmin.
But before you do anything you must download the free Garmin UPDATER
Do that here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
