Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver
Greetings from England!
Be very grateful for help with my new Garmin Quest.On the FIND NEAR ME menu I only get a list of options which is much shorter than shown in the manual. It doesn't include either ALL POINTS OF INTEREST or ADDRESSES.
I have read the manual from cover to cover and cannot see anything help there. Please tell me how can I get the full range of options for the FIND MENU?Without it the devise is not very useful!!

Hi, Please do not shoot the messenger (me) but this is a known problem with Garmin GPS units. According to Garmin Tech Support, this only occurs on Garmin units with older firmware. (Personally, I am not convinced this is actually true. I no longer have my Garmin C550, which I personally liked the best out of all the GPS units I have owned or used. I will buy another Garmin, probably a Nuvi, when this silliness sorts itself out.) Anyway, you have two options, neither of them acceptable to most people, including me. 1)Perform a HARD RESET which will wipe out all data on your unit, including your favorite points, Bluetooth connections, and almanac data (satellite information). Your unit will then need at least 40 minutes, with a clear view of the sky, to update the almanac and reacquire its location. To HARD RESET, unplug your C550 from the charger and turn it off. With the C550 screen facing you, press the bottom right hand corner of your screen and hold in (relatively firmly) and then press and hold POWER. You need hold both constantly for at least 30 seconds. Follow the instructions on the screen. See if any of your personal information is still there. If there is none, then you might as well perform Step 2 below. 2)Download and Load New Firmware onto the C550. Upgrading firmware is relatively easy provided you have a computer. Visit Garmin's website (www.garmin.com). Go to "Support" .. "Updates and Downloads" and then click "Unit Software." Download the software called WebUpdater. Run that and follow its directions. The new Firmware (Software that is loaded into internal memory that does not need power to remember the information) hopefully will fix the MEMORY FULL problem. Good Luck and please post back if the fixes helped or not. I really want the new firmware to work so I can buy another Garmin.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource
Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.

Hold your finger in one of the touch screen corners when switching the unit on. It will ask if you wish to delete all user data. Do this and your unit is hard-resetted.
This will lose all of your waypoints and favourites, but it'll restore your unit to you.

hi bud, just had the same problem. hard reset i.e turn off unit, hold down ok, page and then the power button at the same time. it should then ask you if you want to delete all data. select yes and then you should be able to upload your maps again, this worked for me good luck
