My nuvi 1450 won't let me find Branson Missouri.....I add Missouri and try to add Branson and only Blytheville comes up.....is there a reboot button or ???


On your Garmin you either don't have the maps for that region installed (tools->settings->map->map info) or you need to search near a different place.

By default the Garmin searches near you. try doing this from the home screen:
where to-> search near (upper right corner) -> choose "a different city" -> type branson-> choose "address" and search for your address near branson

Email address is not recognized and account temporarily available


The mail is not send to the address you now give in, but the one that was given while setting up the account. If you could give any address while asking to change an account, no account would be safe.

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:

Cannot hold home address just purchased gps


Instead of entering the city, press "Search All". Then enter the rest of 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.

Forgotten Garmin 200 password


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

Need to know how to reset home address....Picked wrong one.


To remove the Home Address, do the following:
  • Choose "Where to?"
  • Select "Favorites"
  • Find "Home" in the list
  • Press "Edit" -> "Remove" -> "Yes"
Your home position is now removed, and you can add a new one.
