go figure It is nice to see that Garmin is still supporting the long retired 7x0 series. For a change, I think I'll sit back a while before using Web Updater to get this update given the past history with 5.1 and 5.3. Downloading and transferring update to Nuvi via Web Updater 2. But then, Garmin has surprised us in the past by bringing out an update for a long discontinued model ...
I wish they were a little more active with the 7x5 series too. I certainly hope that folks that do this update will report back over the next month or so with a report on how it's behaving on their nuvi 7x0. Updating process went OK, nuvi restarted and seem to be working fine. After a set of solid cursing I removed SD card which holds my US map. Then I put SD card in again and it's still working. For a change, I think I'll sit back a while before using Web Updater to get this update given the past history with 5.1 and 5.3. Nuvi after disconnecting from computer is doing restart on its own and installing update 3. But after I removed SD card and turn it on it was fine again.
We recently had to plan for a long trip to Europe and driving in several foreign countries was scary enough, so having a GPS with me helped ease my anxiety a lot.
The need for a GPS system became very clear and as a result I purchased a great Garmin GPS unit.

Since Updating I am experiencing the problem where after about 3 weeks my unit locks up. Garmin does not acknowledge that there is a firmware 5.30 It shows the firmware going from 4.90. Also if I go to my Dashboard and try to update to 5.40 It tells me my system is up to date. Plain as day my Garmin Nuvi 760 has firmware version 5.30 which was updated through dashboard.Read on to see why I purchased a Garmin GPS and how I learned to switch the maps on my Garmin Nuvi GPS.Printing my driving directions from the internet was always very easy and more than enough for me…until recently.My purpose was simple: I wanted a GPS system that I can use both in Europe and California for driving everywhere. It’s true that the Garmin GPS supports multiple maps, but the internal memory that it ships with it’s not enough to hold two maps.So I had to buy an extra 4Gb memory stick and store the Europe map on it.
