This is not un common that addresses are missing maps are not that up to date with any of the companies due to the time and such it takes to update an entire map it will be even longer before you get updated if ou live in new construction area or very rural area

It guesses the street and wont let me put in the correct one


This will happen with any GPS device, if the street isn't in the unit's database. If, for example, "Alpine Street" was built after your unit came out, your unit might guess "Alamo Drive" after you enter "AL", and wouldn't let you type the "P" unless it knows of another street that starts with "ALP".

The signals sent by the GPS satellites enable the unit to determine your latitude/longitude location, but the maps and software to translate the location to a street address has to be programmed into the unit ahead of time.

There may be an update available for your GPS unit, but you would need to pay for it (and probably install it by connecting to a computer and using a CD/DVD). Depending on the price, it may be a better choice to buy a newer unit, which probably has more features, etc.

Street listings in most GPS units are pretty good, but some streets (e.g., short private roads) might not be in the database for your unit, no matter how new it is. Really cheap units typically won't have the best data- that's the main "cost" in the price, and the reason that updates often cost nearly as much as a new unit.

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.

Type in address took me 4 house away from address type in home address said house was left and the house is on the right


The directions are for approximate location when using addresses. If a street has 10 houses on it, the GPS software assumes that each address is 1/10 the street length apart which is why the address might be a bit off. Even GoogleMaps has the same problem. Their locations are not always exact.

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Your maps are either outdated or have become corrupted.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

Hi, i bought a tomtom 1 3rd adition from a friend. I didnt have the instruction or box just the actual tomtom and car charger. Every time i press home their address still comes up how do i change this....


On TomTom Go at least: Change preferences/change Home location/ Then select from several options. If you are at your home location then fastest is to select "my location", next easiest is to select "Address", then "Street and number"

Cheers,
Pat

Problem locating correct street


Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.
