Question about GPS

3 Answers

My instrument has lost the state (or Provice) and it will not allow me to enter Iowa back into it. I can't get it to accept any state. I have had it for about 2 months with no problem but when I try to reenter a state for the map it tells me that it can't find it.

    I have a Garmin nuvi 760. I can not enter the state in it. I write the state in the product and it tells me it can't find it. It then can not exhibit a map because there is no state, no town, no location. It works fine for a couple of months until it quit on its own.

    I have a Quick Start Manual for the nuvi 700 Series and have already tried shutting the instrument off and starting it again to no avail. I went to your suggested web site and got the message Access Denied. What next?

    I went to the troubleshooting menu for Garmin and it described the procedure when the maps didn't appear. Main menu, Tools, Settings, Map, Map info button, check for check mark. The check mark did not appear so you touch the box to enable. Voila, it works.



    I wouldn't be very happy if you folks charged my card for the full amount of recompense. You folks tried but didn't help much.

I would suspect a corruption in the mapping software, If its only 2 months old I suggest you return it to the seller to get it reinitialised. If you leave it too long you will be asked to buy a new licence for the map.Resetting it to factory settings will not fix bad maps.

Also do not plug the GPS into car power supply when starting the engine, this is what may have corrupted it in the first place.

    You can try resetting it. In the owners manual it states, If the nuvi screen stops functioning, turn the nuvi off and on again. If this does not work, Slide the power key to the left and hold for 8 seconds. Turn the nuvi back on.



    And below is a link that will take you to a site where you can download the owners manual for free, probaly wouldnt hurt to do that anyway for future reference .
