Question about GPS Devices

1 Answer

The Garmin 350 Nuvi GPS does not respond to instructions

When I enter "where to", then "address", the screen asks "what state",I attempt to enter Alberta,  it is rejected as "no match found" - and all this when all I enter is the First letter of Alberta, that is, "A" The same applies when I attempt to set "home location". Obviously, I cannot even get started to use this unit as a travel assistant.

First, make sure that you're set for City Navigator North America NT.

Settings

Map Info
Verify check mark byCity Navigator North America NT

If that doesn't work, try a hard reset.

After powering up the unit and selecting address, the unit displays, "In What State is the Address? and Spell State. When I press Spell State, it has No Matches Found. When I press Back and attempt to enter the first letter of any state, the unit displays "No Matches Found".

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...


The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

Canada


The Nuvi 350 comes with US, Canada and Puerto Rico. When you press Where To? and it asks State/Province, type a Canadian Province, such as Ontario. See what it asks next. It should ask for the City. Try Toronto. Then press Done twice. It should provide you with some addresses in Toronto. This should show it is mapping for Canada.

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.
