SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation

Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.

SOURCE: My Garmin 765t stopped navigating

There should be a small reset switch on the back of most garmin gps units. with the unit on, depress the reset switch with a pen tip or small object until the unit shuts off and restarts. It may take a little longer to pick up the satellite but it will reque the unit and unlock the navigation screen.

You need to update the software asap. The old version has some kind fault and will eventually cause your Sat Nav to shut down for good.

I have recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 765T and I have charged it and waited to use in the car but after a few seconds of turning it on, it turns itself off after showing the "Garmin" company...

Try to soft reset it by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds till it restarts.

If that doesn't help - try a master reset to factory defaults by holding the lower right corner during startup for at least 20 seconds. This will erase all user data and starts the Garmin in factory default.

If it restart I suggest updating the software to the latest version on

Hi I have a garmin nuvi 765 that just stopped working

I called Garmin and they had me do a restoral and it solved my problem.
If you have a lot of favorites and you want to keep them you will need to save them first to reinstall later.
To save your favorites: Plug in your unit to your PC. Open an explorer window and navigate to the drive associated with your Garmin. Double click on Garmin and you will see a sub folder named Garmin. Click this folder and click on the GPX folder. Copy the current.gpx file to your desktop. Be sure you rename it.. They had me rename it to current1.gpx
Now, unplug your unit from your PC and shut your Garmin off…. Then hold the bottom right of your touch screen and turn the unit back on while holding the screen…. Follow the prompts… I cannot recall each, but answer yes to you all…
Once you are back on the main screen (Where To and View Map) plug your unit back to your pc so you can bring your favorites back.
Navigate to the drive that is associated with your Garmin and copy the current1.gpx file from your PC desktop to the GPX folder… you should now have two; one called current.gpx and the one you just pasted called current1.gpx…
You are now ready to go and try it out in your car… Mine worked and all my favorites where there as well.
Hope this works for you as well

I tried to update my garmin. The screen doesnt move (or continue to download) I allowed for block ups.

You need to download and install the Garmin WebUpdater and Garmin Communicator Plugin both available from Garmin's website onto your computer. This allows updates to be installed directly to the 765T and provides the necessay USB drivers as well. The 765T must be connected to your computer when performing all updates or upgrades.

You may need to create a MyGarmin account and register your Nuvi 765T.

Resetting the 765T: with the unit off, press your thumb or finger in the lower right corner of the screen while turning the 765T on. This will clear all user data, base map software will remain intact. Connect 765T to computer and proceed with the Garmin WebUpdater.

Resetting the Garmin Nuvi 765T: Press and hold your thumb or finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen while powering the unit on. This will erase all USER data, base and detailed maps will remain intact.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi 765T to your computer via USB.
Download Garmin's Communicator plugin and WebUpdater, both applications can be downloaded from their site. By doing so, this will load the necessary USB drivers to your computer, allowing the Garmin Nuvi to communicate and update firmware and software via the plugin and WebUpdater.

On Vista, the Nuvi 765T appears as Garmin Nuvi without the "T" as well, (a blue triangular icon also appears) it does not affect the ability to transfer files or explore the device in any way. If you load an SD card into the Nuvi 765T, it will appear as a removeable disk and assign it a drive letter, in my case H:

Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

My garmin nuvi 765t won't 'wake-up'. i've tried it in the car and plugged in to my computer; all i get is a blank screen. my computer also doesn't 'see' the usb device.

plug it in to the computer (usb) for a few hours then try and start it. slide and hold power button for up to 15 seconds till it start.

if that fails, if that fails, unplug the nuvi and turn it off, then press and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen, keep holding/touching lower right screen then power unit on while still holding the lower right of screen until you see the message " Do you really want to erase all user data?" let off power button and remove your finger from the screen and select YES. (this will erase all your saved data) this should reset your nuvi to the factory settings.

use the web updater to update your nuvi once you get it started again.

you can get it HERE

let me know if you need further help.

Check in the settings/setup options to enable all the POIs (Point of Interests) and then check if you can find the "city centers" If not then maybe the maps of this GPS device does not have this POI.
