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.

SOURCE: Innacurate Garmin Nuvi

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

SOURCE: Blackberry 8320 address book unable to import to Garmin Nuvi 265T

The address books may not be compatible with each other regardless of pairing or not. Best bet is to check on 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.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 750 will not turn on. Any ideas on

Hi Jessica,

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.

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.

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

How do I transfer favorite from one garmin to another ?

you can use a pc and usb cable to save your favorites and then upload them to the other nuvi. You can download "Base Camp" software for free on the Garmin website. The software is quite powerful and can transfer your data for you.

My garmin nuvi 215w does not safe any address on my sd card.why?


When you are saving POI's and favorites they will be stored on the internal memory of the GPS, these can be transferred VIA PC to your SD if you wish. You will need to go into the internal memory and copy the folder to your SD card manually.

Hope this helps!

How do I transfer routes to my Garmin nuvi 250

The Garmin Nuvi 250 does not support loaded routes. You'll have to load the waypoints, and then just go from one to the next, to the next. You can transfer the waypoints to the GPS unit with a USB cord.

Unable to program a new address into my Garmin nuvi 1300T. it will turn on but will not let me get pass the agreement stage Reset it back to the default settings, help!!!

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.

No, but you can save addresses in your
"My favourites folder"
Then go to "my favourites" to use the address, for quick input.
You can back this data up to your Pc too, but you can't just Enter on the Pc keyboard and transfer to Nuvi.

Garmin Nuvi 660

When you connect your Garmin to your PC (using the USB lead)you should see the Garmin as a removable drive. Just use the file manager (Windows Explorer) to transfer the mp3 files from your pc to your Garmin MP3 directory.
