Make sure you have a folder named "mp3" on the SD card and that the files are in that folder. Try pressing the "source" button in the mp3 player to grab thefiles from the SD card. Also, if there are a lot of files, it may take a while for the Nuvi to read them all before they are displayed.

My Garmin nuvi 760 does not find any MP3 files on the SD Card Drive. It finds them fine if I put them on the unit itself but nothing on the SD card.


Hi,

Was the SD Card formatted using the built-in format function of the Garmin nuvi 760? If, not pls try, if yes, pls try another card or the same card to another device that can make use of such type of memory card.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Will my itunes music library play on my Garmin nuvi 760? I dragged and downloaded my itunes music library onto my nuvi 760. When I hooked it up this morning to use it in my car it kept saying it was...


Your Garmin only supports MP3 files and iTunes is all MP4. The Best way to convert them is with "Real Player sp" Which is probably on your computer already or downlaod it for free. Open the music library and right click on the centre. There you will see "Converter" Select convert to MP3. Don't open iTunes. Instead go through; Start, my music, iTunes, library. This way you can drag a whole album into the converter. Plug your Garmin in with the USB cable and go through; Start, my computer, storage device H. At the bottom of the converter you can select where to send the converted files. Select the device H. Now press start and let it do it's thing. When it's finished you can see the old files in MP4 format with the new files in MP3 format listed under. Drag and drop is only a copy. You can delete all these files after to keep it tidy. All the original stuff is still safe and you Garmin should now have music on it. Try it with a small tune first to test. Best of luck. Regards Chris4fingers

Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it


I have a 660, and it works fine from the sd card. Make sure the files are .mp3 and that you toggle the source from the mp3 player screen. Can you see the files in browse mode ?

I have a garmin nuvi 760, and I am trying to put mp3 files on it through an SD memory card. I have re-formatted the card 5 times, and my gps still isn't reading it. How can i fix this?


Garmin states.... The most common reason the GPS would not recognize the the audio files is the file format. The GPS will not read any file format other than the mp3 format, such as itunes (mp4) format, wave files, Windows media player files etc.... If the files will not read from from the internal memory of the GPS, the file format is the most likely cause......

How to put music on my tom tom go 730 Can't figure out how to put music on my Garmin Nuvi GPS 650


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.

When connected via USB, the unit should connect with activesync as "Mobile Device". Browse this device with explorer and you should see your (formatted) SD card as \Mobile Device\SDMMC\ or \Mobile Device\sdcard\
Simply drag and drop mp3 files to this folder. If you have a card reader in your computer you can move files to the sd card without having to have
the unit connected.

How do you get SD cards to play ???


Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Garmin Nuvi 650 660 680 6XX SD Card PNY 4GB SDHC Works


just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).

I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.

It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).

Best Regards,

Audiobooks on a Garmin Nuvi 650 GPS


I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.
