If it's not giving you an option to enter in the numbers for the address one of two things might be wrong. 1. the address is incorrect (probably not) 2. Assuming the address is correct, there is a good chance that the address is simply not in the map database. This can be caused because the location is relatively new. In this case, it's time to upgrade your maps.

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.
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.
You should be able to switch demo mode off by pressing the preferences button (the one with four small circles printed on it), then select Route Options, then tap the right arrow button until you get to page 4 which is the Demonstration and Logging screen. Then untick the SmartST shop demonstration box. If that doesn’t work you could try doing a factory reset.
I had the same problem with my Nuvi 310. Found a solution in here that works. Here's a copy of the advice.....note you will need to get in the car and set it for a destination and go. 5-10 mins later the Garmin Nuvi will lose the satellites, but don't adjust it it, leave it on and keep going. Eventually after about an hour it will right itself, pick up the satellites and evrything will be back to normal.
Rank: Apprentice Rating: 81%, 49 votes I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching! The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me: 1) open the GPS antenna 2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on 3) enter maintenace mode 4) select diagnostics 5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data 6) restart unit the usual way
My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.
