It has a slot on the outside of the unit for a SD (SD=Secure Digital) card, SD is a small square card for storing information, a mini solid state hard drive is what it is closest to. Goggle SD card and see the pictures.

Hey lluny,
Good to hear you've already tried doing that.
There's a silver/black (diff. models = diff. color) cable inside your unit that sometimes comes unplugged. You'll see it as soon as you start opening your unit. So soon that you'll want to be careful when you are first opening. Make sure it's plugged in securely, I'd even unplug it and plug it back in.. but that may be risky & put too much pressure on the base solder. The last thing you'd want to do is permanently damage your main board.
Let me know how this works out and if you have any questions. If you do attempt to pull the cable to unplug/replug try to squeeze gently

hi dmdalyai,

if its stuck in one location and you can navigate through the unit (like enter addresses ect.) then its an antenna problem...make sure it has a good charge on it and verify its charging in the power options tap, then take it outside in clear view of the open sky and turn it on, then give it up to 30 minutes to lock on to the satellites....

let me know how you make out, if that didnt help, you might want to try another antenna...is there something wrong with the built in antenna (the one that flips up on the back of the 760 ?

make sure batteries are fully charged.This is the prime reason for failure to lock
The secondary is that the baud and port are not correctly set. check your manual for this info.
