SOURCE: 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.

You do have maps of california already preloaded on the garmin Nuvi 250...so you actually need to select "where to" change/select country and then city and enter the address.
Or if you continue to have problem then callGarmin Tech Support :--

Hello,
Sometimes, these units misbehave and resetting do the trick most of the time. You might want to take the first step, by resetting the unit....
In case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;
Performing a Standard Reset
1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you). 2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds. 3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.
Performing a Factory Reset
1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left. 2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position. 3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.
Now if resetting doesn't solve the problem, you will have to update your Garmin Nuvi and this should put the unit back to order.
Updating helps to re-install the OS of the GPS.
1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB. 2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 " 3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults). 4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.
Good luck.

When i type in an address it says no matches found. do i need to update my maps?


With Garmin it is best to purchase the lifetime updates for just a little extra cost. Maps are updated about every 4 months or so. I check mine about every 4 to 6 months.

The address has to be exactly as Garmin knows it. Often it is better to input the post code and house/business number.

Nuvi 50lm can't find maps


There are two different things to try.

1. Do a hard reset, that should restore the software and maps to their base condition.

How do I set Canandian addresses


You don't say where you are. I'm presuming that you're in the USA and have a map of Canada on your satnav. If so press WHERE TO and then ADDRESS. When you press address the country it's set to is shown at the top of the screen. At the bottom there's a bar which says CHANGE COUNTRY (if you have a second country on your map) Press CHANGE COUNTRY and type CANADA. You should then be able to set Canadian addresses.

When I type in Ontario looking for province it comes up "no match found" so cannot proceed with address function. . I have brand new garmin 1300


Hello,

If you are searching for provinces in Canada you must also have Canada selected as your country. So when selecting your province of choice also make sure that the country you have selected is Canada. If your unit is a 1300 it would not have came with an Canadian database. Check your map information do this by going to Tools > Settings > Map > Info you will be able to ell from here if you have Canadian mapping or not.

Hope this helps!
