outlet, it saves your parking spot each time you turn off your
vehicle. If your device is connected to an non-switched power
outlet, you must unplug the vehicle power cable to save your
parking spot.

Device Maintenance
Map and Software Updates
For the best navigation experience, you should keep the maps
and software on your device up to date. Map updates ensure
your device has the latest available map data. Software updates
provide improvements to features and performance.
You can update your device using two methods.
• You can connect the device to a Wi‑Fi network to update
directly on the device (recommended). This option allows you
to update your device conveniently without connecting it to a
computer.
• You can connect the device to a computer and update it
using the Garmin Express application. This option allows you
to install map data onto a memory card if the updated maps
are too large to fit on the internal storage.
Connecting to a Wi‑Fi Network
The first time you turn on the device, it prompts you to connect
to a Wi‑Fi network and register your device. You can also
connect to a Wi‑Fi network using the settings menu.
1 Select Settings > Wireless Networks.
2 If necessary, select Wi-Fi to enable Wi‑Fi technology.
3 Select Search for Networks.
The device displays a list of nearby Wi‑Fi networks.
4 Select a network.
5 If necessary, enter the password for the network, and select
Done.
The device connects to the network, and the network is added to
the list of saved networks. The device reconnects to this network
automatically when it is within range.
Updating Maps and Software Using a Wi‑Fi Network
NOTICE
Map and software updates may require the device to download
large files. Regular data limits or charges from your Internet
service provider apply. Contact your Internet service provider for
more information about data limits or charges.
You can update the maps and software by connecting your
device to a Wi‑Fi network that provides access to the Internet.
This allows you to keep your device up to date without
connecting it to a computer.
1 Connect the device to a Wi‑Fi network (Connecting to a Wi‑Fi
Network, page 20).
While connected to a Wi‑Fi network, the device checks for
available updates. When an update is available, appears
on the Settings icon in the main menu.
2 Select Settings > Updates.
The device checks for available updates. When an update is
available, Update Available appears below Map or Software.
3 Select an option:
• To install all available updates, select Install All.
• To install only map updates, select Map > Install All.
• To install only software updates, select Software > Install
All.
4 Read the license agreements, and select Accept All to
accept the agreements.
NOTE: If you do not agree with the license terms, you can
select Reject. This stops the update process. You cannot
install updates until you accept the license agreements.
Device Information
5 Using the included USB cable, connect the device to external
power, and select Continue (Charging the Device, page 20).
For the best results, a USB wall charger that provides at least
1 A power output is recommended. Many USB power
adapters for smartphones, tablets, or portable media devices
may be compatible.
Keep
the device connected to external power and within
6
range of the Wi‑Fi network until the update process is
complete.
TIP: If a map update is interrupted or canceled before it
completes, your device may be missing map data. To repair
missing map data, you must update the maps again using either
Wi‑Fi or Garmin Express.
Updating Maps and Software with Garmin Express
You can use Garmin Express software to download and install
the latest map and software updates for your device. Garmin
Express is available for Windows and Mac computers.

The Smartphone Link app affects the battery
charge level on my smartphone
The Smartphone Link app uses Bluetooth wireless technology to
send data to and receive data from your device. It is normal for
an active Bluetooth connection to consume some battery power.
The app also periodically checks for updates to available
services, which may consume additional battery power.
You can change the battery usage settings in the Smartphone
Link app to reduce the amount of battery power the app uses.
1 From the Smartphone Link app on your smartphone, select
.
2 Scroll to the Battery Usage section, and select Settings.
3 Select one or more options:
• Clear the Bluetooth Auto-Connect check box.
Disabling this option may save a small amount of battery
power, but it prevents the app from connecting to your RV
770 device automatically. While this option is disabled,
you must select from the Smartphone Link main menu
each time you want to connect your device to Smartphone
Link.
• Clear the Live Services Check check box.
On some smartphones, disabling this option may
significantly reduce the battery power used by the app.
While this option is disabled, you must manually refresh
the Smartphone Link main menu to receive updated
information about available live services.
