If a GPS gets a factory reset, powered off for months, or powered up again in a different country, it will eventually scan the sky for any satellite it can find, and then download a new almanac and ephemeris - which can take up to 12 minutes after it finds the first satellite. This is best done stationary, to minimize the doppler effect until a fix is acquired.

Gps nuvi it alays say no match found


Every Garmin Nuvi has a map info screen. check to make sure your Garmin has maps
usually that screen is
Tools;
Settings;
map;
mapinfo (at the bottom)

or
Settings;
Map and Vehicle;
My Maps;

If it is greyed out or a blank screen then your garmin is missing its maps. otherwise, make sure the maps are checked and make sure you are searching in the right area. by default the Garmin will search within 50 miles of you.

Garmin will not recognize destination


How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

Spell county? Never seen a county option on a GPS. Usually its zip or city, street, street number.

Cannot insert addresses!


Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.
