Question about Garmin GPS

Nuvi 200w freezes whenever I try to enter a city or address or search using the menus (like typing in "McDonalds" to find the nearest MscDonalds. All I can use it for at this point is addresses I've already entered. I purchased it from Radio Shack in October 2007.

    I've reset it by pulling back the label on the bottom and pressing on that tab. Doesn't fix the problem.

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


Hello,

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.
www.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

1. Touch Where To? > Address.
2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.
6. Select the correct street in the list, if necessary.
7. Touch the address, if necessary.

It guesses the street and i can't put in the correct one


The unit does not "guess" streets. It suggests possibilites based on the location in its database. If it is pulling up incorrect information, the city may be wrong. Try re-entering the address without entering the city. Instead, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address will be listed as being in a different/nearby town due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Getting to a specific address


Next time you want to go to a specific address, do not enter the city. Instead, hit "Search All". Then enter the address as normal. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

How can i add a new address to my nuvi 250w gps? i tried searching the address on the where to options, but it doesn't find it.


When you are entering the address, instead of entering a city, press, "Search All". Then enter the address as usual. Sometimes an address may be listed as being in a nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

My garmin nuvi 200 gives me a different street name before I can type in the correct one...


If the unit is suggesting a different street name, try re-entering the address. When you get to the city, hit, "Search All." Then enter the address as normal. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

well you cant do it that way, you have to use the accpted convention

you can find it on zip code, coordinates on some models or by the following

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.

Postal Code search?


Here's the quote from the Nuvi 350 Users Manual:

Quote 1 (page 7):

"You can search for a postal code. Enter the postal code instead of the city name."

Quote 2 (page 7):

"2. Select the region, city or postal code, when prompted.

Note: There never appears to be an occasion when I'm prompted to specifically enter a postal code, just a city. So I naturally do as instructed in quote 1 above.

Ideas?
