YOU have to select the "State" first, then the "City", then the street and number.

My garmin doesn't recognize an address


If you are having problems finding a particular address, try some of following tips. In some cases the address may be listed as being in a different city other than the one that was chosen. When the unit asks for the City Name, try choosing Search All Cities. If the address is listed under a different City Name, doing this will allow the unit to find the address. Also, when entering a street name, it is important that you leave off any direction or label. For example, if the address was 2536 SW Melrose Place, you would enter 2536 for the house number and only Melrose for the street name. Using the house number and city/state, the unit will fill in the direction (SW) and label (Place).

If you are still unable to find the address, the mapping may not have the address available yet. Please report this to our Cartography department using the Error Report Form which can be found at the following link:

You will need to an update and reset on your GPS unit. Your data on the unit has become corrupt but there is a simple fix. Here is a link to the Garmin "Webupdater" utility that will install the latest firmware and re-initialize your unit. Follow the instructions for the utility to correct the GPS problem.

The 780 garmin gives directions such as turn left or right but is not giving the names of the street to turn on


does your unit state that it should be "Text to Speak" if not then it is not ment to, if it should then the map may not be correct to support it, or you need a software update, free from www.garmin.com, failing that the function mey be switched off

When i try to put in address it asks me to spell


triple check to see if you are spelling the state correctly. If so you then have a defective product.

Next time you post be a little more specific in detail that way I can help you a lil further.

Try to type in address and it says state not found or no matches


Your maps are either outdated or have become corrupted. Your best bet would be to update the unit. The new updates will correct your problem as well as give you the neat new item that allows the unit to actually tell you what street/road/freeway you are on. For example "Turn right on Division Street in one quarter mile off of Clinton" and it will also use a "ticker" at the top so a person can read the same directions. You should also check the other options as you can change your icon from a car to a boat to a semi to an eagle to a turkey(leg) to a herse to a jogger to even a snow shovel or a kid on an inner tube. You can add a 2GB SD card and increase the memory of your unit even more. Now the street recognition only works on units 260W and up and you can even change the voice to an elf or a ghoul and add in halloween-xmas-st patty's day and other holidays to your unit.

To do all of this you need to go to Garmin.com and locate the legacy updater on the webpage by typing in your unit and serial number on the bottom. Go here and have fun http://www8.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address


Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.
