Cracked Screen on my Garmin GPSmap 76Cx

Thanks for your response. The Lexan screen sounds like something I can do. Any advice on how to open up the Garmin GPSmap 76Cx ? I see 5 screws in the back and another 3 under the battery cover.

Sorry, that's beyond my scope. You might want to ask on some of the GPS forums.

Garmin Maps


No, Garmin maps will not work on a Magellan Triton.

Yes, you can install Bluechart and CityNavigator onto one SD card. Inside Mapsource, select the Bluechart maps you want, then switch to CityNavigator and select the maps you want from then, and then send all at once to the GPS unit. If you send Bluechart maps, and then CityNavigator, the CityNavigator will overwrite the Bluecharts. This is why it must be done all in one step.
If this solves your question, please remember to come back and rate the answer.

Using a DGPS on a 76csx


there is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.

Garmin nuvi 200 wont calibrate


I think I just solved this!
(I had the same problem.)

Hooray for google!
I found the answer here: http://www.gpsreview.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4999

"72 Troubleshooting - Screen:
If the touch screen is not responding to your taps properly, calibrate the screen.
Turn the Nuvi off. Then, slide and hold the Power button to the left for about 30 seconds."

After you slide, and hold, the power switch to the left (ON position) for 20-30 seconds, the next screen that comes up should be the calibration screen, telling you to press the dots on the crosshairs.

I recommend using your finger to press the dots, just as you would in your vehicle. I thought I could be more precise using a stylus when I first got the device, but apparently that is what caused the problem in the first place.
Live & Learn!

FWIW -- I have the Garmin Nuvi 200 (not 200W).
I don't know why this problem is listed under 76Cx.

If you're handy with small tools, you can make a new screen using Lexan, a Dremel tool to shape it, and then glue it into place. You'll have to dismantle the unit first to get the broken screen out.

Either that, or send it in to Garmin for replacement.
