Question about Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My Garmin 765T has a problem, with the map freezing at intervals. It is unpredictable, although I can't drive 50 yds from my own home before it occurs! Re-setting it then results in the map disappearing altogether! Everything else continues to work - voice and written directions. This is my 4th unit with the same problem - and it seems to get worse as the unit gets older (this one is only 4 months old)

How can I Delete an old map in the memory of a Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver.


You can delete an old map by connecting the unit up to your PC, using a USB to mini-USB cable. Once the Nuvi shows up as a valid drive letter in windows, double click on the drive and then go to the Garmin directory. Look for the file named gmapprom.img. It should be a file near 1 GB. Right click on the file and select delete.

This will delete the map. Warning, once you do this, your GPS will no longer function and you will need to install a new map.

Before you delete it, always make a backup of the map file on your PC.

Once you are finished, be sure to SAFELY remove the drive in Windows BEFORE you remove the USB cable.

Roads missing


Is the map checked (turned on) on the map menu screen? Find the map screen and then the map info button. Is there a map listed there and is it check marked?

My Garmin 765T froze while driving today. It is just frozen. It shows the map but will not turn on or off. Is there a reset?


Look in the well underneath the flip-up antenna. You should see a little plastic "reset" button there.

Garmin 765 turns on and sais loading maps then


I've had this issue on my Nuvi 1300, where holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would restart the unit, but it would freeze at the "loading maps." part. I ended up plugging the unit into my PC, which started it for purposes of data transfer. I then disconnected it from the PC and it restarted properly.
Try that out and see if you have any better luck.

I tried to update my garmin. The screen doesnt move (or continue to download) I allowed for block ups.


You need to download and install the Garmin WebUpdater and Garmin Communicator Plugin both available from Garmin's website onto your computer. This allows updates to be installed directly to the 765T and provides the necessay USB drivers as well. The 765T must be connected to your computer when performing all updates or upgrades.

You may need to create a MyGarmin account and register your Nuvi 765T.

Resetting the 765T: with the unit off, press your thumb or finger in the lower right corner of the screen while turning the 765T on. This will clear all user data, base map software will remain intact. Connect 765T to computer and proceed with the Garmin WebUpdater.

Resetting the Garmin Nuvi 765T: Press and hold your thumb or finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen while powering the unit on. This will erase all USER data, base and detailed maps will remain intact.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi 765T to your computer via USB.
Download Garmin's Communicator plugin and WebUpdater, both applications can be downloaded from their site. By doing so, this will load the necessary USB drivers to your computer, allowing the Garmin Nuvi to communicate and update firmware and software via the plugin and WebUpdater.

On Vista, the Nuvi 765T appears as Garmin Nuvi without the "T" as well, (a blue triangular icon also appears) it does not affect the ability to transfer files or explore the device in any way. If you load an SD card into the Nuvi 765T, it will appear as a removeable disk and assign it a drive letter, in my case H:

Check in the settings/setup options to enable all the POIs (Point of Interests) and then check if you can find the "city centers" If not then maybe the maps of this GPS device does not have this POI.

My Garmin 765t stopped navigating


There should be a small reset switch on the back of most garmin gps units. with the unit on, depress the reset switch with a pen tip or small object until the unit shuts off and restarts. It may take a little longer to pick up the satellite but it will reque the unit and unlock the navigation screen.
