Re: data card

In each of the sections of 76CSx, such as tracks, waypoints, and routes though their respective categories on the main menu by navigating to their sections and pressing the menu key. For USB mass storage data go to system>Interface> USB Mass Storage and connect to the computer and delete information like it was a regular hard disk (remember to empty the recycling bin to actually remove it from the drive and free space. As for maps I'm not sure as I have never done that myself. Hope this helps

Navigation map do not show up, next turn etc. Also show message "no map info".

My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.

Try running an update with Garmin Express, let it sit for 30 Min after it says it is done, then check again
otherwise you may have jsut installed a smaller region ,... again Garmin express could help.

My Garmin GPSmap 76CSx will begin to start up, but as soon as you release the power button the screen fades away.

This problem can occur when the map file is corrupted or can't be read. Try putting your sd card in a reader and deleting the GMAPSUPP file (in the GARMIN folder) and fitting it back in your device. Then reload the map from Mapsource onto your handheld.

I delete a software in a SD card that comes with GPS accidently. I would like to know where I can download this software.

You haven't stated the exact make and model so it's impossible to provide a specific answer.

However, if all you've done is to accidentally delete your SD card data and you have not written any new data, it should be entirely possible to recover the original data by using SD card recovery software. When you deleted your data it was not removed: all that happened was that the information which tells your computer where the data is was deleted and the file names were all slightly changed. Data recovery software can find and copy these files to your hard drive and you can then replace the deleted information so that the files are fully readable again. When you're happy that the job is complete, send the data to an SD card and you should be up and running again.

I cannot recommend any specific free software as the program I use is an expensive paid for option, but since buying it a few years ago I have heard that there are now many free programs which do many of the basic recovery functions every bit as well.

Just enter "sd recovery free" into your search engine and you should find a solution to suit you.

Lost maps

You do not give very much information to go on.
Perhaps you have downloaded some data such as routing or some other details from your computer via "MapSource". If so AND you have a mini SD card in the GPS, you have overwritten the SD card with the data from MapSource ...the map data on the SD card is now gone!
But the MapSource Data remains.
If you have copied the original data on the SD card, just copy and paste to re-place it.
If NOT you will need to contact Garmin to get a new SD data card.

What you have to do to prevent this in the future is to temporarily remove the Data Card from the Garmin GPS, then download the MapSource data from your computer. Then the MapSource Data goes to the GPS on-board memory.

Try to fix the sd card with some recovery software (recuva or similar) and transfer the data to a new card. If you have the installation disk, use that to copy the data to a new card. Do not use the corrupted card, since you might lock up the device for good.

Problem downloading maps to my 76csx

With unit off, press and hold ENTER and PAGE while powering on to perform a master reset.

Doing a master reset will erase and data in the device and restore it to factory defaults. So if you have any waypoints/tracks/routes you may want to back them up first.

You may want to update your mapsoure software first and see if that helps the issue. If not reinstall the software.

oh and double check your micro SD card to make sure its not damaged and is inserted all the way in.

Lost all maps

I am very sorry to hear that you had no backup. Theres no way you can recover data once you have deleted it from an sd card. BUT , If you still have the authorisation card ( thats the one that generates the activation code ) then you might be able to copy data from another tomtom card to your card then reactivate it with the authorisation card. GOOD LUCK.
