I have just got a Nuvi 765 ... and have got a few problems with it:
1.Battery depleted after 1,5 hours of usage ( normal usage finding and directing to a location ... no fancy mp3 /bluetooth disabled )
2.Audio through FM Transmitter: no sound unless the Nuvi 765 is reset.

Appreciate any assistance in solving these problems..thanks guys

Make sure you fully charged the internal battery first, or it will only last a short time when first used.
Just got a new one today and battery not fully charged in box.

Let the battery completely drain before you recharge it. They say they don't have a memory but that isn't necessarily so. Before you take it off the charger, be sure it is fully charged. This should cure your problem.

If you are still really struggling with the unit, send it back to Garmin.
I've found them very responsible when it comes to exchange units etc.

The FM feature is really weak as it is. I don't recommend using it as anything stronger over pwers it and I find I am constantly looking for a new FM station so I just no longer use it on my 760.

Download the webupdater and then plug in your 765. Computer should auto find your unit, but if not, just click on "find unit".

That said, I can confirm the partially charged battery out of the box. Just charge it fully, i.e., while you drive with in it the cradle, or via USB while computer is on, and you'll be fine. LiIon's don't usually have memory and mine did not...

The FM transmitter IS weak. It's even suckier if you have a crowded FM band. Depending on your location, try the extreme lower or upper FM ranges as the 765 tends to grab those frequencies better. Remember to turn your radio on (common sense, I know, but there's been a few times when I wondered where the audible alerts went only to realize the radio was off. duh.)

As well as that other tips posted on this forum - Make sure that you do run the Garmin on battery every now an then and run it down low befor recharging, and DON'T have it always on charge in you car even when it is not in use. The battery will COOK in a short space of time if you do this and won't hold more that a couple of minutes of charge.

I cooked the battry like this in a previous Navman unit.

What you really need is fully charging the battery before using the unit, then try to use the unit till the battery completely drained. Try this for a few times , it should help the battery for optimum performance. All 765 FM transmitters are underpowered, also it is hard to find a clear FM frequency, I would advise using AUX cable between 765 Audio out jack and Aux in in your car stereo if available.

I hope this helps

Don't agree with the underpowered statement, maybe your receiver is not as good as some, as the 765 works very well in my Toyota, and only get the occasional interference with signal if close to a transmittion in or near the same as I use. Garmin recommend to use the low end of transmittion band for best performance.

I too find that my battery only lasts 1.5 hours at most. I've done a total discharge and recharged it and haven't got better results. Is the battery replaceable or do I need to send it back.

I'm getting a 765 after my 250W was stolen.
Once I get my new unit is it ok to leave it plugged into power all the time while driving and switched off while not in use, or should I use it on battery only occasionally and recharge when needed?

I leave mine plugged in whilst driving and turned off when not in use.
Recommend you fully discharge the battery every now and then, just leave it turned on overnight and recharge in the morning. Stops any memory cycle that the battery may have, even though they are not supposed to remember charge state.

Lithium Ion batteries should never be cycled as they will not be improved at all. The more they are used, the shorter there life span. They are good for about 1-2 years. Lithium batteries also should never be completely discharged either. Once they bottom out they cant be recharged. Most charging circuitry prevents total discharge though.
