we can put exact address and business name and the only one Tom Tom can find is Rite-Aide Pharmacy. This businesses have been there for 10 - 20 years why can Tom Tom not find them.
We have a Keyvillage Shopping Center and it can locate that one. We would like this problem solved it is annoying.

How do I reset my 260w to name the streets


The GPS is equipped to name streets even with voice.
Sometimes this options are disabled by the user.
In the case of the streets, the closer you zoom in, the more detail you get. This would include street names.
Get the manual here: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi200_OwnersManual.pdf

good luck

Spoken street names


Try going to the menu and selecting the icon that allows you to change the voice on your GPS. When selecting a voice use one that has TTS at the end of the voice name. This should allow you to hear the street names as well as your destinations

It won't accept the address I'm going to only part of the house numbers


Some GPS maps have incomplete records of the the numbers of the streets. In other words, let's say you're looking for 732 Main Street. The GPS map may only have Main Street number houses up to 500 and it will not allow you to enter any higher house number. This is fairly common with many GPS, regardless of make.

Your best options are:
1) Set up the address you are going to the closest one that your GPS will allow. In the above example, set the GPS to take you to 500 Main Street. You'll be about 2 blocks from your destination, so you should be able to find your destination without any problems.

2) If your GPS map is more than 3 years old, you MAY benefit from an updated map, but as I mentioned above, this type of errors is relatively common with most GPS and updating to a newer map many not solve the problem.

Hope this helps. If it doesn, please report back so that I can be of further assistance.

Not coming up full post code on tom tom 930


Unfortunately a street number is now required after initial 3 post code digits- a huge and dissappointing step back from the older tom tom option of finding the destination based solely on the full postcode-not all destinations have a street number or the number may not be known (stupid Tom Tom designers).
The only solution I know of is to make up a number (Not always practical if destination is office block for example) or use the point on map option (not as acurate) or the latitude/longitude option which is only really usefull for rural destinations in the middle of no where. Tom Tom really need to produce a fix for this major oversight in the form of a software update.

Garmin nuvi 200 ...enter a Start and End destination!


Yes, you can enter in a specific address as follows:

Press "Where to"
Press "Address"
Select State
Spell City
Enter House Number
Enter Street
Press Save
Press Go

If your Nuvi has acquired a satellite lock, you will then be ready to go.

Error planning rout


I had this problem. There was a problem with the direction of a one-way street leading to my destination. I corrected it and then I could plan the route. Check the streets leading to your destination against a real map and correct ht e directoin where necessary.
