I had this same problem. At first several letters were missing and then it got worse. Language was set to English. I hooked it up to the USB port on my computer and didn't download anything but just hooking it up to the USB port and turning it on reset the system. All the letters now appear.

I simply used my camera's USB cord and hooked it up to my Garmin and downloaded an update. Seems to be working fine now. It brought all my letters back perfectly.

That happened to me too, you are not set on English for some reason. go into settings and change it and you should be fine

Same thing happened to mine, except it is the B and S. No pun intended... I push mode, then change it to british, and use the letters there. Inconvenient, and it doesn't fix the prob, but at least you can find what you are looking for.

Hi there why is it that my sat nav only allows me to enter part of address or postcode and blanks out the rest of the input keyboard. There is no setting on my device to allow all functions of the alphabet...


magellan gps is that kind.the blanking out is to prevent errors. let put it this way. 123 west pine lane . for example
type city... then street. as soon as one letter is typed. search is narrowed to a minimum to make it easier to gps to search your destination with much less errors
type p.( for pine)
then. all letters visible. are for all street names that start with p in the city you selected before. .
then p i
a few letters will be displayed.meaning that only names that start with pi will show. like picture picnic pine pin pint pine pines
when you type pine as for address..
it wil show you all streets that matches city and street
123 west pine
123 east pine lane
123 north pine lane
123 south pine rd
123 south pine ave
your selection will be 123 west pine lane.
if you dont want to strugle with that gps. i highly recommend GARMIN GPS devices

Not letting me put in the address


It searches the database for street names. keep typing your street name until it is the only one availiable. If it cannot find your street, then either: you are spelling it wrong, you have the wrong city/state or the street is newer than the database

When i try to type in address the wrong letters keeps coming up


Do a screen calibration. There are different ways to get to it depending on which GPS you have but that usually fixes problems like that.

New magellan maestro 4040 doesn't work


It depends. The way most Magellans work is that when you begin putting in addresses, the GPS looks for addresses that match it, and greys-out numbers and letters that don't match. If it stops on one address you're trying to put in, it's possible that the address is not in the memory.
