Question about Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My nuvi 765 will not turn on. Any solutions? How do you reset it? Vista will not even recognize the Garmin in the USB port. I'll assume that it's because it can't communicate to the OS. :) It just shows nuvi765 (no T) on the device.

Resetting the Garmin Nuvi 765T: Press and hold your thumb or finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen while powering the unit on. This will erase all USER data, base and detailed maps will remain intact.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi 765T to your computer via USB.
Download Garmin's Communicator plugin and WebUpdater, both applications can be downloaded from their site. By doing so, this will load the necessary USB drivers to your computer, allowing the Garmin Nuvi to communicate and update firmware and software via the plugin and WebUpdater.

On Vista, the Nuvi 765T appears as Garmin Nuvi without the "T" as well, (a blue triangular icon also appears) it does not affect the ability to transfer files or explore the device in any way. If you load an SD card into the Nuvi 765T, it will appear as a removeable disk and assign it a drive letter, in my case H:

Garmin usb not recognized by windows 7


Has your PC ever been able to recognize the Nuvi? A common problem on the Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx & 14xx are broken connections between the rear USB port and the printed circuit board. This will prevent communication between a PC and the Nuvi. It can also affect charging.

Have you tried the unit on a different PC or operating system?

My computer windows XP can't see/recognize my garmin nuvi 1250. I just bought it .The garmin was made in Taiwan. I have intention to upgrade the map.. coz it is old map (2010).but I cannot register...


Assuming the Garmin communicator plug-in has been installed in the Internet Browser and registered at Garmin.com with a user account - the Garmin goes into (PC) communication mode when its connected to the USB port of a PC.

If that doesn't happen - i'd suspect the USB cable first.

Assuming the cable is ok - including the USB port of the PC - the Garmin must go into (PC) communication mode. If not the Garmin USB jack could be defective.

Yesterday, I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 2360LMT for my grandfather. I have read the instructions on how to register it but now, I have the usb connected to the computer and the Garmin, my computer will not...



Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi 2360lmt; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. I would also try a different usb port. See if it show up in Computer or My computer in Windows 7/Vista or XP.
Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

Hi,

Try these steps:-

  • Unplug the USB cable from the computer.
  • Turn the unit off and then back on again.
  • Plug the USB cable into your computer.
  • The unit either automatically goes into USB Mass Storage Mode or displays USB Mass Storage Mode as an option on the screen.

Note: If your computer still does not detect the unit, make sure that you plug the USB cable directly into the computer USB port and not the USB hub. If the cable is already plugged directly into the computer, try plugging it into a different port.

Also, in some cases the operating system does not support the device. Try upgrading it to the next higher level. In most of the cases windows Xp service pack 2 does not recognise this Garmin device. Try upgrading it to service pack 3.
If you are still experiencing the problem then you will need to contact Garmin for repair.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

THE USB PORT THAT MY GARMIN NUVI 270 IS PLUGGED IN TO IS NOT RECOGNIZED BY MY COMPUTER


If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult to solder in a new USB port.

Windows XP will not recognize Garmin 200W


I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.

What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


Try this: Hold the power buuton down, you will see on the lower screen the word "Pre Booting - ". Keep holding the power button for about 60 second, then you will see on the lower screen "Booting".
This time, release power button; system will reboot and loading map... again.
I got the same problem, after research on the web. Nick 99990_0 had post this solution on (his Nuvi 660) but it work for my Nuvi 350 too. Good luck.
