My garmin nuvi 780 is asking for a pin code it was

You must have installed a PIN code when you first set it up. If you can't remember, then take it back to the security location and it will automatically unlock, and you can reset the PIN. If you purchased this privately rather than from a dealer, there is a chance it is stolen. The PIN is the security feature of Garmin GPSes.

Garmin Nuvi 205 GPS will not turn off.

Hope you've fixed this by now, but for anyone else, you turn it off the exact same way you turn it on. Puzzled me for a minute too. Slide the power button on the top to the left. Peace!

My nuvi 780 only displays large freeways and no

Have you checked to make sure that the map is checked "ON"?

Please see this link:

http://www.sharc.net/discus/messages/6/75.html?1253054729

If the map is not checked "ON", you will only be getting the Base Map information (major highways - no street detail) and you wont be able to search for places of Interest (POI's).

The 780 garmin gives directions such as turn left

does your unit state that it should be "Text to Speak" if not then it is not ment to, if it should then the map may not be correct to support it, or you need a software update, free from www.garmin.com, failing that the function mey be switched off

No voice insruction

Check that you haven't accidentally set the volume control to "mute". Usually this is a small checkbox below the volume slider and if checked there will be no sound regardless of the volume setting.

The NUVI 780 tells me it is currently locked and

Most likely the switch is bad. Do you feel it click when you put it back to the center position? Is it in the center position? How does the switch work when you use it to turn the unit on & off? That switch has (2) sections to it.... one for on/off and one for screen lock. It's possible 1/2 of the switch is bad. I've replaced them before.

Nuvi 780 does not get past

The MSDN Traffic receiver does not need to be active to display maps. it is only needed for traffic reports, news, stocks, gas prices, Web Favorites, etc.

You may need to reload the maps into your GPS, unfortunately garmin stopped including the DVD in the box - BUT Garmin will send a DVD disk for free - just for asking. You will need your coupon codes however, to unlock the map.

I suggest you telephone Garmin and speak with a Customer Support Rep. to get a full explanation of what they can do for you.
