Go to the 'Main Menu' page and bring down the menu. Click on 'Owner Information' to bring up the owner information page. Tab to the bottom and uncheck the box that says 'Show At Power-up'. Personally, I would want the info to display at power-up so that honest people would see it. You can speed up the display sequence by pressing the page key after each screen loads up.

How to add a n address to favorites??


  1. Go to the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press WHERE TO and enter the address.
  3. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see a button that says SAVE
  4. Press SAVE and it will be saved to your favourites. You'll then get an option to give it a name. Type in something that you'll recognise again.
Alternatively if you drive to a location and you want to save it to favourites you can press the car icon which shows your location on the map and it will give you an option to save it.

Occasionally when you save a location the satnav gives it a default name. You can change this by going to Favourites.
  1. Press the name of the place saved
  2. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see an option to EDIT.
  3. Select EDIT and you can change the name to something you'll recognise.

How do i save favorites and is there enough room to have the name and address for the favorite. Garmin Nuvi 205


When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.

You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.

So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.

I need to change the home address on garmin nuvi 760


Go to the Garmin site www.garmin.com and look up the model for guidance. I believe there is a reset button under the plastic cover around the screen the needs to be pushed in. That may do it.

Replacing personal info on start up


Settings Menu > Welcome Page.
You can then delete the existing info and insert your own. Do not put your address, put your cellphone number - better for security purposes.

We have a problem putting in names and addresses.


Hi,
All tomtoms are more or less the same. You tap the screen to make selections.
Switch on , let it boot up / Tap the screen / Then tap " Navigate to" / then tap "address" / Then tap either "City centre" or " Street and House Number , or Postcode " ( you select one of these by tapping screen ) . Lets say you just tapped "Postcode" . A keypad will appear on the screen for you to enter a postcode. NOW, enter the postcode ... as you enter the postcode , streetnames will appear and you can either continue to enter the postcode OR you can choose one of the street names that appear. Once you have done this , the tomtom will ask you to select a "house number" . if you don't know the number then just 'try' selecting number 1 . Once you have done this , select "Done" and the tomtom will switch for that screen to the "route calculation screen" . if you now tap the screen once more your tomtom will start giving you direction both visual and audible , to your destination . ( you must begin to move before it will start ) . ....................... Once you have completed the journey , you can now cancel the navigation by once again tapping the screen , then use the "right arrow icon" to move through the menue screens. When you see an icon with a RED CROSS through it , and underneath it says " clear route" , select that by tapping and the route / navigation will be cleared. ... Good luck , hope this helps.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address


Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.
