If you're running the latest system software on that GPS, then I would say send it back to Garmin, including all the powercords etc...
You know, they sometimes have issues with their 12 volt power adapters. You may want to contact Garmin about getting a replacement cord. That was the issue with my wife's Garmin Nuvi 200.
It sounds like your Nuvi is set on "off road". Please look for the setting that allows you to select "faster time", "shorter distance" or "off road". Your unit is probably set to "off road" where you are given directions like a compass and not by roads.
Hi, my name is Vince & i had that very same problem with my nuvi 200w, have you tried to update it on your pc ?, i updated mine after travelling down the motorway at 40 miles an hour thinking that their was road works after the sat nav told me. I also found that updating it seemed to increase the signal strength too, try it, it may solve your problem.
I had the same problem until i realized it was I myself who messed things up. What you probably did was change the settings to "pedestrian" and forgot to change it back to driving. When you set your system to pedestrian, it does not recalculate a new driving route because it assumes you can just walk there. (You can walk in any direction very easily, so no need to recalculate).
If your garmin is also sending you down a one way street, thats another tip you are on the pedestrian setting. (If your walking, you can walk down one way streets).
I am not sure however, what other types of weird things happen when you are on the bicycle setting, i havn't tried it yet. But i am positive you are trying to use your garmin on pedestrian, put it back on automobile. Let me know if it works, thx
