Are you using a copied navi disc? Some poor quality copied disc only contain the first layer where tele atlas map is store, most of the options are encoded in the second layer. Only people who know their stuff, have the right program and use high quality disc can duplicate the genuine quality of the original article. Most discs on sale on Ebay are of poor quality discs so they can make money, and some probably just barely use a copy program. Try to run an original disc and see what happen, if your system will not take the original disc let me know, I can help.

I have lost all my maps on my garmin nuvi 255W-

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

How do I use coordinates? I entered map coordinates and it took us to the wrong place.

Some Tomtoms can use latitude and longitude coordinates. They refer, of course, to points on the map.
To use coordinates on some tomtoms you tap the Browse Map option. A general Map of the route is displayed. The screen has three buttons at the bottom
  1. Options
  2. Find
  3. an icon for the point on the map.
  4. Done
Tap the Options button: The Map detail Preferences appears, offering the choice to put a check mark in POI, Favorites, images. At the bottom of screen you have 3 buttons : POI, Advanced, Done.

Tap Advanced: In thsi screen you can put a checl mar on Names, Markers, and Coordinates.
Put a Check mark on Coordinates and press Done, Then Done again until you exit all those options.

Now your tomtom is configured to display coordinates. Be aware that GPS technology was created for military purposes and its civilian uses cannot be expected to offer pin point accuracy. It took an act of the US president to allow its use for civilian localization.

When you plan a route you can use longitude and latitude. Here is the icon you should like for.

Notice: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 To: January 3, 2007 Dear Valued Customer: Re: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 We would like to inform you of a potential service issue with Pioneer's AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2, inform you of our plans to resolve this service issue, and ask for your help in notifying consumers. If a consumer is not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need for the consumer to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the service issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 later experiences the service issue. _Importantly, the service issue does not pose any health or safety risk._ Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the flex-cable powering the flip screen to the AVIC-N1 and the AVIC-N2. After a number of power cycles, the cable has been observed to fail and cause the unit to malfunction (symptoms may include, but are not limited to, the flip-screen becoming blank) -- flex-cable failure can only be confirmed by Pioneer; standard service charges may apply for service issues not related to the flex-cable upgrade. This issue may affect almost all AVIC-N1 units and AVIC-N2 units. Please contact Pioneer at the number listed below if you have a question about whether your AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 unit is affected by this issue, or if a specific malfunction affecting your AVCI-N1 or AVIC-N2 is related to this issue. To address this issue, Pioneer is providing a one-time cable upgrade to consumers for their AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 at no charge to consumers for parts and labor. Pioneer will offer the free upgrade either upon request or automatically if an affected unit is serviced for another reason. Pioneer will exclusively perform the free cable upgrade for all units (i.e., no other service facility should perform the cable upgrade). If you own an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 and you are experiencing the service issue, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1603 to arrange for the cable upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Customers who have paid for the cable upgrade are eligible for reimbursement of certain service costs if sufficient proof of service can be provided -- please contact Pioneer at the above-listed phone number for more information regarding reimbursement rules. Customers can also review FAQs regarding this service issue. Click here to view the FAQs. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer. Sincerely, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. *Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., 2265 East 220th Street, Long Beach, CA 90810* ------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am sorry to inform you that the program you are using does not specify between personal vehicles or commercial vehicles.

This unit was created for use in personal cars and trucks without taking RV's into consideration. Pioneer should have thought about this when they designed the program, because I am sure you are not the only person who has ever put one in an RV.

I checked the service manual and found no reference to anything about commercial use and routes.

I guess you will have to pay very close attention to the signs on the road that display the clearance of low overpasses. There is a good chance that any route you may take will have a sign posted with the clearance and with enough time to be able to make any needed adjustments in your route.

Good luck, be safe, and if there is anything else I can assist you with don't hesitate to ask. I am hear if you need me. I work at an authorized Pioneer repair center, so I have access to just about everything Pioneer makes available.

Just so you know, if your unit ever needs service, this is one of very few that Pioneer does not authorize any of there authorized service centers to repair under warranty. They must be shipped to Pioneer, no exceptions. If it is not under warranty, anyplace can work on them, but it might be difficult getting some of the parts.
