Question about Garmin GPS 76 GPS Receiver
Replace the USB wire which you are connecting between the GPS and the COMPUTER then check. Also try connecting any other USB device like printer or pendrive in the same usb slot of the computer and check if its getting detected by the pc when you connect the printer or pen drive.If other device getting detected and usb wire changed but still the problem is same and GPS not getting detected then the problem is not with your computer or your GPS.The problem is related to the usb port of the GPS.The usb port in the gps is got loose internally.That usb port in the gps has to be resoldered and checked. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Change the usb port ..cause some are on 1.0 and some 2.0 ..and be sure the device is powered and on ..when you connect it ..and it has to see it ..if it doesn't see it at least like unknown usb device ..than the cable may be damaged..

I suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, 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 Garmin GPS unit is reset, 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. with this, this should fix the problem.
