When I put that post code into my iphone it comes up with the address
Castle
Wales
SA1 2AW
United Kingdom which is a bit vague

In my TOMTOM it comes up with
Strand Row
Swansea

My Garmin Nuvi 510T comes up with the same as the TOMTOM.. so why your Garmin does not do the same I have no idea are your maps up to date?

Garmin nuvi 255w missing postcode search


On my Nuvi 200, after "Where To?", you have to select "Address". My instruction book says: 2.Change the state, country or province if necessary. 3.Touch "Spell City", enter the city/postal code, and touch "Done". Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching). If you are unsure of the city, touch "Search All". There are further steps, but "Depending on the version of maps loaded on your nuvi, the button names can change and some steps could be ordered differently".

Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 255W, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?

I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 255W.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 255W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 255W WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Cannot hold home address just purchased gps


Instead of entering the city, press "Search All". Then enter the rest of the address as normal. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Garmin won't recognize the city, so I can't enter the address


Instead of entering a city, hit "Search All". Then enter the rest of the address as normal. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Wrong street number


The maps are purchased from the post office. The post office locally will many times call your address other than the legal address for various and sundry reasons.
Please check with your local officials and you will see what your legal address is. I found this out working for the Census. 1b8d9a5.jpg
