SOURCE: trouble with Garmin 750

Even stand alone FM transmitters are tempermental and their performance can depend on the arrangement of your car's antenna system.

I have found that my radio will 'lock and hold' the Garmin's signal if I can boost it for a few seconds by creating a stronger signal by placing an 'antenna' (generally anything metal) near back case of the Garmin at the middle or right side (looking from the front).

You can also try just taping a piece of metal to case back at that position. I just used pair of sissors but I'm sure some tin foil or a peice of wire will do the trick.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 750 will not turn on. Any ideas on

Hi Jessica,

Move the on/off power switch to the left and hold it there for at least 30 seconds and see if it comes back on. I know there was a bug in a firmware version that makes the unit "bricked" after a certain date. The only way to fix it if the reset didn't fix it is to disconnect the battery inside, reboot the unit and install the firmware fix.

If I found a garmin nuvi gps it got a locked on it how can I reset it or something


Most GPS navigation devices from Garmin has a reset function which allows user to access a Maintenance Mode screen with system information, diagnostic details or perform the reset function to restore Garmin Nuvi or other series unit to its original default factory settings.

Depending on which model of Garmin GPS unit you're using, the following routine can reset the Garmin device to original factory loaded settings, or bring up the Maintenance Mode with access to System Information and View Diagnostics screen, where users can see various logs, and of course, clear all user data (reset to factory defaults) or clear Waypoints.

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Hack above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Trick above works on Garmin nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series unit. In fact, there is a video demo by user of Garmin Nuvi 360 on how to perform the hidden reset function.



Hope helps. (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Hello :

Resetting your GPS could solve the problem .

Here is how to reset your NUVI :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.


3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings

Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750. It went dead suddenly.


THERES A GOOD CHANCE THAT THE CABLE IS DAMAGED OR EVEN WORST THE CONNECTOR WITHIN THE UNIT IS DAMAGED OR BROKEN. TRY USING THE OTHER CABLE IE THE CAR TO UNIT CABLE OR THE USB TO UNIT CABLE IF EITHER ONE WORKS THE OTHER IS DEFECTIVE, IF NONE OF THEM WORK THERE GOES TROUBLE.

Garmin Nuvi 660 "GPS is off" Can I bypass?


Try this first:

http://www.sharc.net/discus/messages/6/307.html?1252938489

if that doesn't work, there is a magnet in the antenna and magnetic switch in the base that needs to be looked at inside.

How do I lock the screen on the Garmin nuvi 500? (not lock the device--just the screen)


on the power switch you should see a slide where you slide it to the right. This will put it in safe mode operation, meaning you cannot touch the buttons until you are stopped. If you do not have the slide switch and you have the push button switch, then navigate to tools/settings/security. You will have two options, the first one is garmin lock, don't worry about this one. Look at the other one, it says safe mode. turn this on. The screen will only be locked as long as you're moving. When you stop, it will not be locked anymore until you start moving again. If you touch the screen while moving, it will ask you if you want to turn safe mode off. Hope this helps.

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

Garmin 750 - 90 days old


Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.
