Question about Garmin GPS

Cannot get unit to accept instructions

On entering Where to, then address, it asks for "what State", when Iattempt to enter my province Alberta,it shows " no match found" - Icannot get past the first letter! Of course, attempting to establish my" home location" is equally pointless. I have downloaded the PDF file -all 72 pages, and cannot find the answer to my problem. I am suer thatthis unit is a very good GPS and will be helpful to me - IF I CAN JUSTGET IT STARTED !
I am FRUSTRATED !!

    Thank you coolguy008 - I got some help from Leefixit which was a bit more detailed than your advice, although essentially the same - and it worked. Appreciate your help.

    Go into "Map Info" and make sure that check box is checked, so the system can "use" that map.

    Let me know the result..

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.

How do you change a garmin 265w to accept US addresses, might will not change to state/ countyt. I live in canada, can't you preprogram the American addresses?


Your unit should be preprogrammed with US addresses as well as Canadian addresses. When entering the address, you should press "Where to?", then "Address". The next screen should show you the province you are in, and the button below that should say, "Spell State/Province". Press this, then enter the US state in which the address you want to navigate to is located, then the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps, or if you are still having trouble.

How do I input an address to get the directions


Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Canada maps


After pressing Where To?, then Address, you should see a screen that says the state you were last in, and below that it should say something to the effect of Enter State/Province. Press this, then enter the Canadian Province you wish to navigate to, such as Ontario. You should then be able to enter the rest of the Canadian address as usual.
