I have run into this myself along a certain stretch of highway consistantly. I was told it had to do with the geometry of the satellites in the sky in relationship to where I was at the time. I just deal with it as it doesn't happen very often - and only for a short stretch or so (a mile or two).

One thing you can check are the settings to make sure you have the nuvi set to "stay on road" Make sure you've set it for a mode other than "pedestrian" - which of course would allow you to leave the marked roads.

If you're still having trouble, don't hesitate to call Garmin Support for free, knowledgeable tech support. Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Garmin nuvi 760 loses the road that I am on for no apparent reason. Car icon is visible but no road image. I am not going off-road. The road graphic will be displayed but during the trip it will just...


Are your maps updated?

If so the road you on a new road that hasn't been programed into the maps yet?

Could be a few things going on, lost satelite, or a new road.... word to the wise Always carry a road map in your vehicle, GPS is a great tool but not always 100% right especialy if your on a new road, Maps are updated I believe every 6 months or more.

Love my 760

Is there free updates for the Nuvi 750? If so How do you do it?


Garmin gives you 60 days from the purchase date to get one free update for your map. They supply you with a USB cable that you will need to connect to your GPS and a computer. Go to the Garmin website and choose Support / Update Map. The website will automatically read your model and serial number and then let you know if your need and are eligible for their latest update. The file will be downloaded to your computer. The same webpage will describe the steps necessary to run the update to your GPS.

Are there free road info download available


No. If you want usefully updated maps, then you have to pay for them. Garmin do offer a "lifetime" maps subscription, but it's only for the lifetime of your product: given that most Garmin SatNav units don't last long enough to benefit from more than a couple of years worth of updates it's usually cheaper to buy the single update option, although the lifetime subscription gives you four updates per year and one-off is just a single annual update.

If your unit also needs updated traffic and camera alerts then it can be cheaper to buy a new satnav.

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

New downloaded maps will not unlock


Go to:
tools > Settings > Map > Map Info > Select the map you want to use. Select only one map as they will conflict one another.

When i logged onto the garmin website initially it stated i was eligible for the latest maps update however once i am done registering its no longer available. what should i do?


garmin give you 60 days from the first time you use your gps to update the map for free. so if you turned on your gps august 10th, and it's now the 22th, you're out of luck.

it's from the time of gps use, not the time when you create your profile online.

MY GARMIN NUVI 760 says north on a road when it should show south


Sounds like the map needs an update if it doesn't show roads that actually exist.
