I plugged in my garmin nevi 1350 into my computer for updates, and it's not showing up on the screen (MAC). The update program can't find the device on the screen. What am I doing wrong? marilyn

Perhaps nothing.

Does the GPS turn on and go into usb mode when plugged into your MAC? If not, it is probably a driver issue if the GPS works normally in your vehicle. You might try the Communicator Plugin for MAC.

How do I delete maps from Garmin Nuvi 765

Connect the Nuvi to the PC with the supplied USB cable. After about a minute, the computer should recognize the Nuvi under Windows and assign it a drive letter. Double-click on the drive letter and view the directory in the Nuvi. Look for a subdirectory labeled "Garmin". Double click on the Garmin subdirectory. Look for the file named "gmapprom.img". This is the map file. This will be a very large file, around 1GB. I would suggest making a backup of this file on your PC in case a future map upgrade fails. Once the file is backed up you can go ahead and delete it. You have now freed up memory for a new map. You can also delete unused voices in the voice subdirectory. to free up additional memory.

Garmin Nuvi 1450 is not found by dashboard or by the Garmin Map Update when connected to the computer, although the computer, itself, recognizes it correctly.

Have you registered your device at Garmin and downloaded the latest version of Garmin Updater? Also connect the usb cable directly to a port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.
I have attached the link to Garmin. thanks for using FixYa.

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:

How to charge garmin 765 on computer

Very simple: connect the cable that came with the GPS: USB end to computer, mini USB to the GPS. When the unit is charging, the battery icon will disappear.

Unfortunately, Garmin did not think you would want to know the percentage of charge completed (they confirmed it to me in email), so you have to guess that after 2-4 hours your GPS is fully charged.
