I am pretty sure you can only delete active tracks, try doing the following :-

On the home screen select "Information"
On Information select "User Data"
On User Data select "Tracks"
On tracks select clear active track.

I think you can keep doing this until all tracks are erased.

Hope this helps

How can I Delete an old map in the memory of a Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver.

You can delete an old map by connecting the unit up to your PC, using a USB to mini-USB cable. Once the Nuvi shows up as a valid drive letter in windows, double click on the drive and then go to the Garmin directory. Look for the file named gmapprom.img. It should be a file near 1 GB. Right click on the file and select delete.

This will delete the map. Warning, once you do this, your GPS will no longer function and you will need to install a new map.

Before you delete it, always make a backup of the map file on your PC.

Once you are finished, be sure to SAFELY remove the drive in Windows BEFORE you remove the USB cable.

I would like to delete one or more addresses without disturbing the rest. How? How can I edit an address?

I don't think you can delete the Address Book on the iQue, because the program resides in the iQue's ROM. Any programs that reside in ROM cannot be deleted.

I want to delete old contacts from my garmin nuvi 42 lm

If you do the online update (plug a USB cable into a computer and go to the update deletes all your old bookmarks and addresses. Plus you get updated maps.
Don't be in a hurry, though, because it can take a while to download the new maps.
Other than that, download the owner's manual from and see what it says.

GPS won't fully reset

Resetting will not delete tracks - you must delete the track(s) individually. Your manual is here. Turn to page 26 and read "Using Tracks" to learn how to delete them.

Good luck!
