SOURCE: trouble with Garmin 750
Even stand alone FM transmitters are tempermental and their performance
can depend on the arrangement of your car's antenna system.
I have found that my radio will 'lock and hold' the Garmin's signal if I can boost it for a few seconds by creating a stronger signal by placing an 'antenna' (generally anything metal) near back case of the Garmin at the middle or right side (looking from the front).
You can also try just taping a piece of metal to case back at that position. I just used pair of sissors but I'm sure some tin foil or a peice of wire will do the trick.

The accuracy of your garmin is actually good. The accuracy is only as good as the accuracy of the addresses that Garmin got from every municipality.
You can not recalibrate the unit but you can reset the "home" setting by parking exactly where you want to call home and then setting that location as home.
Please rate my answer as a FixYa! Thanks

The address books may not be compatible with each other regardless of pairing or not. Best bet is to check on garmin.com in the support section. If it isn't they you can use the dial up on the GPS as well as any other enhanced features that require bluetooth services.

Move the on/off power switch to the left and hold it there for at least 30 seconds and see if it comes back on. I know there was a bug in a firmware version that makes the unit "bricked" after a certain date. The only way to fix it if the reset didn't fix it is to disconnect the battery inside, reboot the unit and install the firmware fix.

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.
