It may be because no map or the wrong map is selected. Try pressing on Tools, Settings, Map, Map Info. The map name should then be shown and should have a tick beside it. If it's not ticked press it to tick it. The map is then selected and should be ok.

Hello,

When traveling with your GPS it may take 20 - 30 stationary minutes for it to lock satellites, also do you have any mapping for the area that you area visiting? If so make sure it is activated my going to tools > system > maps > info see if the mapping is checked off.

Hope this helps!

Why did I loose all my information loaded onto my Garmin when I registered my 1300LM unit? . How do I download my Garmin information as a back up if loaded information is lost again? Do I have to...


Hello,

The Garmin unit when connected to your PC will also show up as a mass storage device, you can go in to the units internal memory and copy all the information you need to your PC. And as far as Best Buy being able to sell Garmin products or any products there not the best.

Hope this helps!

I have a nuvi 760 is there any free updates


The Nuvi 760 is not designed for commercial vehicles. Garmin does sell units that are, like the Nuvi 465T. According to their website, www.garmin.com, the Nuvi 465T offers the following:

Ease your way down the highway with the nüvi 465T – our first nüvi designed specifically for the over-the-road trucking industry. Featuring a preloaded NTTS Breakdown Directory, specialized routing options throughout the lower 48 states and truck friendly points of interest, this full-featured navigator was made for life on the road. The nüvi 465T also lets you create custom vehicle profiles tailored to what you’re driving and what you’re hauling. It’s convenience created with over-the-road drivers in mind.
Navigate With Confidence
The nüvi 465T is the first navigation device to provide locations in the National Truck and Trailer Services (NTTS) Breakdown Directory to its trucking-relevant points of interest. The NTTS Breakdown Directory is the most comprehensive guide to semi-truck repair facilities nationwide – including those offering 24-hour road service.

More info is available from Garmin.

Hi i have a garmin 265 only 4 weeks old. i have lost all side roads and the navigation is well out. says im on the road next to me. i keep loosing gps signal also. any solutions??????????


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Losing gps signal and poor tracking are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS need updating.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
