Turn on your 4040 and after it starts, press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds and take it outside in clear view of the open sky until the satellites link up.

if that fails, let me know and ill give you something else to try.

How do I change a route on my garmin rv760 from the route the gps picks


There should be a built in trip planner app to set up your trip. If it is a long trip and you don't like the route just add a stop for gas or food along the route you want to take. If it is a short trip then get over the fact it is recommending something different, mute, it and drive how you want to go. It is a computer and does not know what you may know. As an alternative, add a via point by telling it a new destination while it already has one. For via points remember to work backwards. Final destination, then next to last and so on.

How to set multiple destinations?


Some garmin satnavs allow you to save routes which have multiple destinations. The 265WT does not so the only way to set it for multiple destinations is to use via points. First press WHERE To and enter your last destination. Press GO and then while that is active pres MENU and WHERE TO again. Enter your second last destination and press GO. It will ask if you want this to be a new destination or a VIA point. Select VIA point. Continue to add other destinations in the same way with the destinations nearest to the end going in first and the closest to the start going last.

It's not ideal especially as it cannot be saved for future use but unfortunately for some strange reason Garmin do not include the option to store routes on all their satnavs.

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

I am trying to put in multiple destinations for the same trip. When I try to put in my second destination it keeps going back to my home site not my first destination. It starts the trip for my second...


The Nuvi you have does not support multiple destinations in a route. you can have 1 destination and 1 via point. So if you are going to a destination and you need to add a stop in the route, you can add the 2nd point to go to and then continue to the original destination.

Clearing a trip in progress


Use 'Where to' to find or enter the place where you now want to go. You should be offered "replace existing destination?" Tell it yes and it will clear out your previous trip and calculate the new one.

How to program a destination


In general, once you key in an address and then select a route, the name/route will be saved in "recent destinations." If you want to use that destination, just select it. If you want to add it to "Favorites", then select "Add Favorite" and all your recent destinations will appear. Select the one you want and rename it: E.g., instead of "220 W. Walnut St." rename it "Grandma's House" and it is set.
