This is the regular behavior of the unit. The unit understand that you are using a usb connector to recharge the unit, thus it goes to a similar behavior as it is connected to a pc. In normal conditions you have to wait 4 hours to get the unit fully recharged.

There is nothing wrong with your gps unit so you can relax and prepare for your trip!

While your unit is connected to the computer via usb cable as in recharging, you cannot operate it as a gps at the same time.

You will find that once the usb cable is disconnected that your unit is working normally.

Enjoy yourself.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 (and 1490T) won't start up


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.

I forgot to mention I have the Auto charger, a picture is found here.

If you bought a generic AC charger that claims to work for the 760 which doesn't have the mini-b end, you bought the wrong one.!
That (mini USB) USB port is the only place to charge the battery on this model

When booted up, I get a Map Update Notice.


I solved this problem by pressing my finger where the OK button is before I turn the nuvi on. That worked for me,

Can not turn on my GPS Garmin nuvi 760


Can you try the direct to outlet charger? If you dont have one can you try a different charger? If that does not work then that means that the unit might be defective. Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020

Nuvi 760 will not turn on !!


I just had the same issue, after using the unit for 11 months.
WOULD NOT power on... and i freaked.
This is what solved it, no matter how strange it sounds...
I held the 'power switch' to ON for 20 secs, then it came on again.

I hope this works for you as well!

Garmin 710 Doesnt show all the maps


Garmin maps are married to the device they were bought for. You should not be able to take an SD card from one and have it work in another. Another point is, was the 710 already registered to someone else and never deregistered? Have your registered the 710 and does it show up on your Garmin account?

If the 710 is not on your account, Run Garmin Express (download from Garmin). Connect the 710 to your PC. Any maps that the 710 is entitled to will show up in Garmin Express. You may have to buy the map on Garmin if the 710 never had it before.

Garmin 760 wont come on


Try holding the power slide to the left and holding it there for 8 seconds. If that doesn't work, try charging it via your PC & USB cable. If that doesn't work, try a mains charger if you have one (I had to do this with mine). Good luck!
