Using Traffic Information
Using Traffic
Information
Your nüvi can receive FM TMC (Traffic
Message Channel) traffic or MSN®
Direct traffic content, depending upon
the traffic receiver connected to your
nüvi.
Your nüvi displays both types of traffic
content in the same manner.
Note: Garmin is not responsible for
the accuracy of the traffic information.
Understanding FM TMC
Traffic
The FM TMC traffic receiver, which
is integrated in the power cable, is
included in some nüvi 755, 765, and
775 packages. FM TMC traffic receivers
receive traffic information that is
broadcast over the FM Radio Data
System.
24
The FM TMC subscription activates
automatically after your Garmin GPS
device acquires satellite signals while
receiving traffic signals from the service
provider. You can add other FM TMC
subscriptions at any time. Check the
Garmin Web site at www.garmin.com
/fmtraffic for other available services.
Understanding MSN®
Direct Traffic
The MSN® Direct receiver, which is
integrated in the power cable, is included
in the nüvi 785 packages. MSN Direct
receivers receive MSN Direct content,
including traffic information.
For information about activating MSN
Direct service or using MSN Direct,
refer to the nüvi 785 Quick Start Manual
and the MSN Direct Owner’s Manual
Supplement at www.garmin.com.

Receiving Traffic
Information
To receive traffic information, the
following conditions must be met:
• The traffic receiver must be
connected to the nüvi.
• The traffic receiver and nüvi must
be connected to an external power
source.
• The traffic receiver and nüvi must
be in data range of an FM station
transmitting traffic information.
Note: Heated (metallized)
windshields could degrade the
performance of the traffic receiver.
Traffic in Your Area
When you are receiving traffic
information, a traffic icon appears in the
upper-left corner of the Map page. The
traffic icon changes color to indicate
the severity of traffic conditions on
your route or the road you are currently
travelling.

Using Traffic Information
Traffic on Your Route
When calculating your route, the
nüvi examines the current traffic and
automatically optimizes the route for
the shortest time. If a severe traffic
delay occurs on your route while you
are navigating, the nüvi automatically
recalculates the route. You might still
be routed through traffic if no better
alternative routes exist.
If a non-severe traffic delay occurs on
your route, the traffic icon shows how
much time the delay has added to your
route. This time is already included in
your estimated arrival time.
To manually avoid traffic on your
route:
1. On the Map page, touch the traffic
icon.
2. Touch Traffic On Route.
3. Touch the arrows to view other traffic
delays on your route, if necessary.

When searching for an appropriate FM

an unused frequency that has steady,
consistent static. If you hear slight noises
and sounds in the background of the
static, select a different frequency.
As you travel, you might need to change
the frequency for the FM transmitter.
A frequency not used by a radio station
in your area might be used by a station
elsewhere.
FM Transmitter
Information
The FM transmitter is intended to
transmit the audio from the nüvi to your
FM stereo.
Do not adjust your FM settings while
you are driving your vehicle.
The distance between the vehicle power
cable, the nüvi, and the FM stereo
antenna may also affect the noise level.
Vehicles with antennas located far
away, such as a rear-mounted antenna,
may experience more interference from
outside noise sources than vehicles with
front-mounted antennas.
As you drive, you may notice changes
in the background static even though
there is no FM station using that
channel. You may notice this as you
drive through intersections where certain
kinds of traffic lights or other municipal
electronic systems are operating. You
might also notice this effect when the
terrain changes, allowing distant stations
to be received by your car stereo that
were not received when you made your
initial frequency selection. These and
other sources of electrical interference
may make it necessary to look for
another frequency.

About GPS Satellite
Signals
Your nüvi must acquire GPS (Global
Positioning System) satellite signals to
navigate. If you are indoors, near tall
buildings or trees, or in a parking garage,
your nüvi cannot acquire satellites.
Go outside to an area free from tall
obstructions to use your nüvi.
When your nüvi has acquired satellite
signals, the signal strength bars on the
Menu page are green
. When it
loses satellite signals, the bars turn red or
clear
.
For more information about GPS, go to
www.garmin.com/aboutGPS.

Caring for Your nüvi
Your nüvi contains sensitive electronic
components that can be permanently
damaged if exposed to excessive shock
or vibration. To minimize the risk of
damage to your nüvi, avoid dropping
your unit and operating it in high-shock
and high-vibration environments.
57
Appendix
Cleaning the Casing
The nüvi is constructed of high-quality
materials and does not require user
maintenance other than cleaning. Clean
the outer casing (not the touchscreen)
using a cloth dampened with a mild
detergent solution, and then wipe dry.
Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents
that can damage plastic components.
• Do not expose the nüvi to water.
Contact with water can cause this unit
to malfunction.
• Though a PDA stylus can be used
to operate the touchscreen, never
attempt this while operating a vehicle.
Never use a hard or sharp object to
operate the touchscreen, or damage
may result.
Cleaning the Touchscreen
Avoiding Theft
Clean the touchscreen with a soft, clean,
lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl
alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner, if needed.
Apply the liquid to the cloth, and then
gently wipe the touchscreen.
Protecting Your nüvi
• Do not store the nüvi where
prolonged exposure to extreme
temperatures can occur, because it
can cause permanent damage.
58
• To help avoid theft, remove the unit
and mount from sight when not
in use. Remove the residue on the
windshield left by the suction cup.
• Do not keep your unit in the glove
compartment.
• Register your product at
http://my.garmin.com.
• Use the Garmin Lock feature. See
