Question about Garmin StreetPilot i3 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

States do not list in address entry mode

When using the 'Where to', the first screen is to select the state. There are no states listed and no matches are ever found. I have reloaded maps for a single state and multiple states to no avail. This failure makes the GPS basically useless for me.

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.

1. Touch Where To? > Address.
2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.

My garwin 1300 keeps going to another state, I have done the reset of turning it off and holding the right lower corner and then resetting, I have driven the car out to a parking lot and kept it plugged in...

Try to find your own home address (which you'll want to label as "Home").

From the main screen, select Where to>Address.
Change the State, if necessary. This will make your state the default for future searches.
Touch "Spell City" and enter your city name or zip code.
Enter your house number, and touch Done.
Enter the street name, and touch Done.
Select the correct street on the list, if necessary.
Select it. You'll have the opportunity to Save your address as "Home".

Good luck.

How do I input an address to get the directions

Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.

When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address

Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.
