Question about Garmin GPSMAP 276C GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin GPS 276c appears to download at random time intervals while driving my vehicle such as 19 seconds, 8 seconds, 8 seconds, 9 seconds,19 seconds. Is this normal for the default setting for this machine? It aso appears to show a faster speed than the speedo is showing. Thankyou for your time. Jaysin

Sounds like you have the unit set on non road use and or sonar. Please go here and see what you need to do. This does require a lot of reading but without knowing exactly what the unit is set on this is the best I can do.

Garmin Nuvi 755t Stuck in power up cycle


You can do two things.

First, plug the GPS in overnight in a regular USB charger. If the battery charges up, then the problem is with your Garmin vehicle cable.

If it does not charge up, you can buy a battery replacement kit for it: https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Nuvi-755-Replacement-Installation/dp/B003VFSR4M

I have a 276c garmin, use it off road, in the forest I lose reception, in open area I do not. My buddies have the garmin 60 series and they do not lose reception in the forest. Any suggestions? Thank...


Try using an external antena, these are availble from Garmin, all you do is remove the existing arial and plug the lead from the external antena in. Then mount the external antena on your roof.

My Garmin 276c indicates "Battery Missing" even with a new Batt.


Check the battery contact points inside the unit. There may be a thin film of crud (oxidation) that prevents contact, especially if the previous battery had any signs of corrosion.

Downloading mapsets


Every time you download it wipes the entire memory card. You have to select all the maps you want stored on the card each time you add a new map. To keep from selecting all the maps everytime you want to download you can save the file in your mapsource software then just add or delete maps from your original map list.

All the mapsets that are installed in your PC should appear in the menu bar on a dropdown list. If you click on it you should see "bluechart" city navigator" etc, if you installed them correctly.

Choose one of the map sets, such as bluechart, from the dropdown list and all the maps from that set should appear on the screen.

As you select individual maps from the map set they will be loaded onto a maplist wich should appear under a tab on the left side of your computer screen.

Then go back to the menu bar and pick your next mapset, such as city navigator. A new map set will appear on the screen but the maps you selected from the previous set will still be on the map list on the left side of the screen.

I hope this helps. Please reply if you have questions about my response.

Gps 276C doesn't charge fully


Garmin has updates for this issue on the website but it doesn't fix all the units. Mine for example still does the whole "charge complete" thing when showing 1/2 a battery. The funny thing is I let it drain and the unit stays on for about 10 hours after it says the battery is dead. Garmin is working on a new fix and they said it should be up in about a week.
