No not normal at all, unless you leave it in the car switched off and drive several hundred miles to a different location. It could also mean the signal to the antenna is blocked. Try it outside of the car and away from all transmitter equipment (cell phones, blue tooth stuff) If it works okay there it could be because the windshield is blocking signals due to a metal vapour coated windshield (usually French cars have this issue)

I takes close over 3 minutes for my garmin 765T to locate a sattelite and I leave in a major east coast city. is something wrong with the system or is this normal

Holding the satellite signal strength indicator icon (upper left hand corner of screen) for a few seconds with your finger brings up a visual display showing signal strength of various satellites, accuracy, speed and elevation.

From a cold start - I too have experienced 2 to 3 minute wait times for satellite aquisition, so I would presume this is a normal. I own three different Garmin units apart from the 765T and satellite aquisition times vary on all three, most aquire satellites in under 4 minutes. Traffic on the other hand seems to take a while to load as this is dependent on availability in your area.
