Replacing the nuvi 760's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+760&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 760 is back up and running smoothly.

Hello,

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.
OR
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.
Once the device has been hard reset, user have to perform the set up procedure again upon start up. Note that erase user data command only delete data in the Garmin unit’s memory that isn’t accessible to the user when the unit is connected to computer. The command does not erase .gpi or .gpx files loaded (if your .gpx files contain any waypoints then they will automatically be imported into Favorites), nor will delete any MP3 music, JPG photos or any other files that have been stored on the GPS memory card.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reseted, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 – 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites.

Take care.

    Neither option worked and the unit feels very hot....

    Hello,

    I advice you remove the battery on the device, the battery is worn out and will need to be replace, the battery is shorted, that is the cause of the hotness on the device, remove the battery from your device and get another battery for replacement, perhaps, you can still use the battery if you cannot get a battery now, but you will need to remove the battery and wait for few minutes for the device to cool before you insert the battery back and see if it works but if not, you will need to replace the battery on the device because the one there is already shorted.

    Take care.

Last week for no reason my Garmin nuvi stopped working, i had a location entered into my GPS as I approached the half way point the Garmin froze. i shut it down and turned it back on but it is still in the...


Since powering off and on your GPS isn't solving the problem, you should attempt a RESET. The RESET procedure is as follows:

1) Disconnect the GPS from external power.
2) Raise the antenna.
3) Locate the RESET button close to the antenna hinge on the rear of the GPS.
4) Press and hold the RESET button for 3 seconds.
5) Reconnect the GPS to external power source.

The GPS will have been reset and power back on at this point. If you have problems still, contact Garmin Support. You can download your manual here.

I hope this helps - if it did, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

How do I go directly to state without first going to city. I was trying to enter the city Troy which is in New York. However, when I entered the city Troy, the GPS went to cities in PA.


Near the bottom of the Whereto>City screen is a button to change states. Select it first, so you can change to New York, then enter Troy when it returns to the City screen.

Cant get city name entered


How are you entering the state? You have to put a space between "New" and "York". The space key is the one at the bottom that looks like this key "[" sideways. If you type it as "NEWY" it will come back with no matches.
