Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Handheld GPS Receiver

2 Answers

I have just purchased a Garmin GPS 255W and am learning to use it. I have studied the on-line manual, but cannot find the answer to my question. My question is, when a street will not show up does it mean the street is not listed in the system? Specificlly, when I enter the Town of Winnsboro South Carolina, then enter 156 for the street number and then begin to enter Stoneridge Ct., only the street names "Stony Cir." and "Stork Ln" pop up. Is there a way to override these names and continue searching for Stoneridge Ct. or does the absence of Stoneridge Ct. mean it is not in the system? If so, is there a way I can get such streets into the sysem? This street is in a sub-division that is at least five years old, so Stoneridge Court has existed for that long or longer. Your help wil be apreciated. Bill Kay

I have noticed this in my area too..Grants Pass, OR. I think the maps on smaller towns are not updated regularly. Garmin says they use current street maps as one of their sources for updating their products. I have recently purchased a NUVI 255W and it still does not show streets that were not on my old Street Pilot c330 which I bought 5 years ago. I think Garmin needs to hire more people to gather new information in the smaller cities and towns. I would be happy to volunteer.

I needx a manual for garmin Nuvi225w

You do not need to pay for the complete Manual and troubleshooting guide.Go on Google and type in User Guide for Garmin 255w.Then click on Garmin 255w-review-Nuvi GPS.It takes you to Retrevo,and from there you need to follow the instructions.It is a 60 page printout Manual,which only prints in the middle of the page,so I cut it down to size,purchased a small binder,punched holes to fit the binder and there you have it for furture reference.

Forgot password on my garmin 255W

Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.
