When you reach the first stop on a saved route the satnav should automatically set the next stop as it's destination. If it doesn't it's possible that the spot you saved as your first stop was not exactly right i.e. you didn't drive to where it's marked on the satnav. If this is the case you need to mark the spot by driving to it and pressing the car (which shows your location on the satnav) and this gives you an option to save present location. Save it and use it instead of the one you entered by address. Then when you're setting your route you'll find it in your favourites and add it from there.

To get back to the map go back to the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. Press VIEW MAP and it will bring you back to your map and should continue with your route.

I have a Nuvi 250W and just downloaded new maps from Garmin (bought the online lifetime option). Now I only have the major routes on the display. I seem to have lost the minor roads? How must I fix...

First press tools, then settings and then maps. Press map info and the name of your map should be displayed with a tick beside it. If there's no tick press the map name and a tick will appear beside it. The map is now selected and should be ok.

If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the map is locked. To unlock the map follow the instructions on and that should solve the problem.

The problem of east/west may be solved when the map is sorted out. If not change the voice. Press tools, settings, language and the voice name and select another voice. If there's not another english speaking voice you can connect your satnav to the computer and open webinstaller. When it finishes checking for software updates it will give you the option to download new voices. Tick the ones you want and then press next. They will be downloaded and then when you have disconnected from the pc go through the process of selecting a new voice again.

NUVI 260 lethargic, navigation guidance and map take 15-20 minute

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Good explanation you gave. More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:
  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program:
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

Voice directions not working.

First, ensure that you are using the unmuted internal speakers by pressing the power button twice while the unit is on.

Do you hear beeps (button tones) through the speakers?

These are a couple things to try:

1. Change the voice from English TTS (JILL) to English TTS (JAKE) - This will demonstrate whether the voice database has been corrupted.

2. Tap the power button twice while the unit is on to switch back to fm transmitter and attempt to use your radio to tune the sound. If you succeed here, you may indeed have a problem with your internal speaker. A return of the product may be necessary.

IF there is no route guidance it is because the unit is not receiving VSS information from the vehicle.  Confirm that you are getting the VSS info from the correct source and or use Rostra Precision Control's cruise control guide to confirm your VSS wire.
