    Well. I have a similar problem. I have the Delorme Maps. I cant seem to take the maps from GPS onto the Delorme Maps. Is there something you have to do to your GPS to configure this?

Hmmm, on the cd/dvd is a folder called usb, thats where the drivers are. Assuming you are using windows XP, go to the configuration screen, select system, select hardware, look for a usb device with an exclamation mark, right mouse it select update driver, select I will choose, then browse to the folder on the cd. If that doesn't work or there is no yellow exclamition mark, look for unknown devices remove them (delete button) and do a rescan (little icon with the screen on it.

How can i configure my pc to recognize my garmin gps?


When you attach your Gamin to your PC via a USB cable, your PC should recognize it and add it as another drive letter on your computer. If it doesn't, you might try rebooting your computer while the Garmin is still attached.

My nuvi 765 will not turn on. Any solutions? How do you reset it? Vista will not even recognize the Garmin in the USB port. I'll assume that it's because it can't communicate to the OS. :) It just shows...


Resetting the Garmin Nuvi 765T: Press and hold your thumb or finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen while powering the unit on. This will erase all USER data, base and detailed maps will remain intact.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi 765T to your computer via USB.
Download Garmin's Communicator plugin and WebUpdater, both applications can be downloaded from their site. By doing so, this will load the necessary USB drivers to your computer, allowing the Garmin Nuvi to communicate and update firmware and software via the plugin and WebUpdater.

On Vista, the Nuvi 765T appears as Garmin Nuvi without the "T" as well, (a blue triangular icon also appears) it does not affect the ability to transfer files or explore the device in any way. If you load an SD card into the Nuvi 765T, it will appear as a removeable disk and assign it a drive letter, in my case H:

Computer does not recognize it


assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)

good luck

Computer not recognizing usb connected nav device


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

Music loading


It should work the way other Garmin units work. Plug the unit into the computer via the USB cable. The computer should recognize the unit as a mass storage device. Click on the Garmin (it should be shown under your storage devices) and you should see a folder marked MP3. Drag and drop the music files you want into this folder, then disconnect the unit (safely, of course). That should do it.

No communication with computer


I would try downloading the USB driver from magellan (if they offer it).  You may also be able to get the driver from C-Map USA as the do the map software for magellan.
