The screen on my Garmin 765T cracked, so the touch screen does not work. Is there a way to do a master reset without using the touch screen?

It is working ok but the screen is too bright, without adjust Is it a hardware or software problem? thanks


You should be able to adjust it using Tools - Brightness. If you can't it is more likely a software glitch, as long as all the other touch controls on the screen work.

You can update the software here.

You can also do two types of reset.

How to Reset a Garmin 1350 by Kefa Olang, Demand Media Whether you're on a local or national business trip, a Garmin Nuvi 1350 GPS can help you find your way around. However, if the device is not functioning as expected, performing a reset is a troubleshooting step that can solve common problems. A soft reset reboots the GPS's hardware without deleting saved data, but a master reset clears saved data and settings to restore the device to the factory state.
Step 1 Press and hold the "Power" button for a few seconds to reset your Garmin Nuvi 1350 if it's not performing as expected. This soft reset reboots the device's hardware without deleting saved files.
Step 2 Turn off the Garmin Nuvi 1350 if you're still experiencing problems, and then disconnect it from a power outlet, if it's connected to one.



Step 2
Touch and hold the lower-right corner of the screen while powering on the device. Release the power button when the screen turns on, but keep pressing down on the screen. Step 4 Touch "Yes" when the "Do you really want to erase all user data?" message appears on the screen. If the text is in another language other than English, touch the button on the right to confirm your selection.
Step 5 Wait for the GPS to reset automatically, and then follow the on-screen guided prompts to reconfigure it.

Touch screen can't work


It could be your cables inside the device itself. Or there is a problem with your digitizer (The touch screen) that is malfunctioning.

Try to soft reset it by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds till it restarts.

If that doesn't help - try a master reset to factory defaults by holding the lower right corner during startup for at least 20 seconds. This will erase all user data and starts the Garmin in factory default.

If it restart I suggest updating the software to the latest version on Garmin.com

I tried to update my garmin. The screen doesnt move (or continue to download) I allowed for block ups.


You need to download and install the Garmin WebUpdater and Garmin Communicator Plugin both available from Garmin's website onto your computer. This allows updates to be installed directly to the 765T and provides the necessay USB drivers as well. The 765T must be connected to your computer when performing all updates or upgrades.

You may need to create a MyGarmin account and register your Nuvi 765T.

Resetting the 765T: with the unit off, press your thumb or finger in the lower right corner of the screen while turning the 765T on. This will clear all user data, base map software will remain intact. Connect 765T to computer and proceed with the Garmin WebUpdater.

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:

Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

Ensure that the battery is fully charged via the battery strength icon, prior to aquiring satellites.

My garmin nuvi 765t won't 'wake-up'. i've tried it in the car and plugged in to my computer; all i get is a blank screen. my computer also doesn't 'see' the usb device.


plug it in to the computer (usb) for a few hours then try and start it. slide and hold power button for up to 15 seconds till it start.

if that fails, if that fails, unplug the nuvi and turn it off, then press and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen, keep holding/touching lower right screen then power unit on while still holding the lower right of screen until you see the message " Do you really want to erase all user data?" let off power button and remove your finger from the screen and select YES. (this will erase all your saved data) this should reset your nuvi to the factory settings.


use the web updater to update your nuvi once you get it started again.

you can get it HERE

let me know if you need further help.

Check in the settings/setup options to enable all the POIs (Point of Interests) and then check if you can find the "city centers" If not then maybe the maps of this GPS device does not have this POI.
