The easiest solution is to put an sd card (8gb or less) into the sd slot. Have Garmin Express install to the sd card.

You can also do a hard reset and try to install to the device itself. A hard reset restores the files to factory default, so it may free up enough space.

There should be a built in trip planner app to set up your trip. If it is a long trip and you don't like the route just add a stop for gas or food along the route you want to take. If it is a short trip then get over the fact it is recommending something different, mute, it and drive how you want to go. It is a computer and does not know what you may know. As an alternative, add a via point by telling it a new destination while it already has one. For via points remember to work backwards. Final destination, then next to last and so on.

Try to recalibrate the screen. Here is the procedure. If this doesn't work, the touchscreen will need to be replaced.

http://www.sharc.net/gps_bootup_repair.htmThe unit has to be reflashed with the firmware. Please see this link:

Two thing can cause this. If your unit is running firmware version 5.3, this version has a bug where the touchscreen will work for about 5 seconds then the unit will lock up. Updating the unit to version to version 5.4 will fix the problem. More info can be found here:



If you are running firmware version 4.9 or 5.4 and the touchscreen still does not respond, then the touchscreen will need to be replaced. On the Nuvi 7xx, the touchscreen may be soldered to the LCD display, so if you don't have any soldering experience, please have a professional replace the touchscreen. More info can be found here:

In that case, the touch screen is faulty and must be replaced; it's a fairly common fault and your faulty screen cannot be repaired. If you search YouTube for "Nuvi 760 battery replacement" you'll see how to dismantle your machine.

The screen is not hugely expensive and not difficult to fit, and as you obviously realise you'll need to enter the diagnostic menu after fitting to recalibrate the screen (for those reading this who are unfamiliar with this, press and hold the battery icon to access the diagnostic menus).

Although the screen isn't that expensive, consider whether to replace the battery at the same time as it's probably seen better days. But when you add the cost of the screen and the battery then if the maps on your machine are out of date then it's going to make more economic sense to buy a complete new machine.
