This is a rare glitch ive come across with some different Garmin GPS's. I just had to send it out to Garmin by calling them up at 1-800-800-1020 tell them your problem, give them the serial number on the GPS i believe is on the bottom or back of the GPS. They will give you all the information needed to get your Nuvi sent to them and have them repair/ replace the faulty unit. The whole process took me about 2-3 days from sending it out to getting my replacement.

I put oin a new address , hit Go and my Garmin nuvi just keeps re routing me back to where I am.


Hi Nancy,

You might try a "RESET" to solve this problem:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing bottom right corner of the screen. This will reset your data back to factory defaults. This will remove favorites, vehicles, etc. - but maps will remain.


Next, install the latest Garmin firmware for your GPS. This can solve a lot of "strange" problems:

Go Garmin's WebUpdater Page, click on "Step 1 DOWNLOAD", from there choose the Operating System on your computer and either run or save the file, install this software and then run the software with your Garmin connected to the computer.


Difficulty typing? Try a screen recalibration:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing the top left corner of the screen. This will allow you to recalibrate your screen and holding the Use a pencil (instead of a finger) to touch the dots for the best accuracy.


If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - Thanks & good luck!

Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

Ensure that the battery is fully charged via the battery strength icon, prior to aquiring satellites.

To reset the 765T: Hold finger or thumb on lower right hand corner of screen while powering the unit on from the off position. This will erase all user data.
