You could try pressing on the upper left hand of the screen when you turn it on and do a full reset. You lose any data that you had saved but it would go back to a fresh install. You might want to see if you could download the firmware and software into it again. I think it allows you to do that with a warning about losing data. Oh if you do either take it outside and turn it on for a few moments so that it can acquire the satellites. I did not realize this so I thought I had a problem and turned it off. When I restarted I had lots of problems.

reydriver,

The G5 user manual says in order to turn the unit off, press and hold the power button. Pretty common to Garmin GPS units. Have you tried that?

Want to know how to put way point in my etres gamain gps


Adding a Waypoint is not to difficult. You would first of all choose Where To? on the main menu, and then input your main destination. Once the GPS unit has finished calculating your route and ask you to follow the given route, you would then go back to the Main Menu screen and choose Where To? again. You would then input the Waypoint using Favorites, or whichever method you prefer to use. Once the GPS has accepted the destination, and it displays the screen with the large GO button, you would press GO. The next screen should ask you if you want to add this location a a New Destination, or to Add as a Via Point. You would then choose Via Point.

Hello everyone. I bought garmin nuvi 750 GPS six months ago. I use it travelling all over and it works pretty good. But I dont know how could i find alternate route for same destination. For eg. I want to...


What you're looking for is called "Via Points" as your friend correctly suggested. From the Garmin Nuvi 750 web based information:

nüvi 750 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 750's wide screen. In addition, nüvi 750 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls.

"Alternate routes" are those routes that are created when the nuvi is used with a traffic receiver (FM or MSDN). This allows for a new route to be created with the traffic data so that routes suffering congestion, etc. are avoided. Some people also refer to the routes created when a turn is missed (the GPS indicates "Recalculating") as an "alternate route" but it is not.

Good luck!

Tranfer track data to computer


when your in mapsourse make sure your gps is hooked up correctly and is loaded to mapsource...if so up in the main tool bar there is a tab called transfer-> send to device, or receive from device click on receive from device and a window pops up ask you what you want to receive maps, way, points, tracks, routes but make sure your device is showing

good rule of thumb is to plug your gps into your computer first then turn the unit on

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

Route calculation error


I was having the same problem and contacted Garmin support.

What I had done was turned off the Basemap that came with the unit. I only had the mapsource map street map on which I had purchased separately.

The technician basically said the unit needed the basemap to "locate itself". Somehow the basemap supports any maps you purchase separately. That seemed odd but once I turned the Basemap back on it calculated the routes and the error message went away.

If you have the Basemap off, try turning it on from the Map Setup - Information window.

Hope this helped.
