My car charger will not charge battery in garmin Nuvi 760


The fuse may be gone in the charger. There's a ring, near the silver tip, of the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter. If you unscrew the ring the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the silver tip as it may fall out. Replace the fuse and it may solve the problem.

Nuvi 760 will not take charge


I don't know which of the three ways you're trying to charge - car cradle, via USB cable to a computer or via accessory AC adapter. An 18 month old 760 should still have a good battery.

If you are using your car cradle to charge consistently, use one of the other methods and allow the 760 to charge for 8 hours. Use of the car cradle can cause the 760 to stop taking a charge after a while, and switching to one of the other methods should "refresh" the internal battery. Since the AC adapter wasn't included in the box, the USB cable method is likely your only other choice. While connected to your computer, you should download & update the 760's firmware. It's fast and free - and could solve other potential issues. Get the WebUpdater software direct from Garmin.

It is also possible that the fuse in the cigar lighter plug has opened. Disassemble the the plug to check for and replace a blown fuse.

If unable to get the 760 to accept a charge, you might need to replace the battery. There are several sources for batteries - but a free call to Garmin Support should be your first move.

Please rate this reply and good luck!

How do you replace the fuse in the 12 volt adapter? Harley


Unscrew the nut on the end of the plug. The tip, fuse and spring should all just slide out. Replace in the opposite order.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 760. The end cap which screws in and holds the fuse in for the traffic receiver power cord is broken. Anyone knows where I can get a replacement part without buying another power...


This is a known problem with the 760 traffic receiver power cords. Call Garmin Customer Service (you may stay on hold for 20 minutes or so). When someone answers, explain the problem and they will most likely send you a replacement screw cap and fuse assembly for free.
