Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue with your device or vehicle power adapter.

May I ask HOW the fuse in the tip of the adapter was TESTED?

Was that with a multi-meter or "visual inspection", or some other means?

Also, how does the tip of the adapter "feel" - when inserting into the power socket (firm, loose, etc.)?

Thanks

Hi again,

I believe you may have opened a new question - instead of replying back here - on this page.

If the fuse was TESTED and the tip of the vehicle adapter is a "good fit" when connected (is making contact) to the power socket, but the power indicator light does NOT come on, then the adapter may have failed - and will need to be replaced.

Now if this system is still covered by warranty (typically for a 1 year period), then that replacement should be done at no cost to you. If out of warranty, a replacement can still be purchased - either through Garmin support or perhaps through a local GPS dealer.

NOTE: IF this is a vehicle adapter that includes a "Traffic Receiver" AND you use that traffic feature, make sure you get the same (or compatible) adapter. The Part Number of that adapter is usually printed on a label located somewhere along the lead. Or the Garmin Customer Support folks can look up the proper part number for you - if you contact them.

In any case, you will want to get in contact with Garmin Technical support, and have the Serial Number of your dezl 760LM available so that you can get the correct part number and part for your device. I have the main support contact information below.
