You need to reset the whole unit which set the unit default factory mode:

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power.
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil.
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON.
  4. After the unit powers ON, you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. When this message displays, remove your finger from the bottom right of the screen and touch Yes.
  6. The unit will go through the Master Reset.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your nuvi.

Good luck...

Is WAAS enabled..... If not then turn it on...... This will give you better accuracy.....You could also try using an external antenna if something inside the car or the windshield is causing interference with the GPS signal.......

My garmin 750 doesn't identify the streets that i should be turning at.Just tells me distance when to turn.


Do you mean it is not speaking the street names? Have you selected a voice that uses the Text-to-speach (TTS) feature? From the main screen press, "Tools", then "Settings", then "Language." Next to the voices that will speak street names, you will see the (TTS) designation. Press one of these and the unit should tell you the street names.

Garmin nuvi 750 won't say street names after upgrade to 2009 maps


User's manual available at www.garmin.com. Select "support", then "Manuals". Enter "mobile electronics"+"automotive"+"model #". Manual says that selecting a language with a person's name will speak street names.

Doesn't name streets to turn on before the turn.


Go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/ and look up your specific GPS system, some do not name the street by name, some (like the nuvi 780) do.
