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.

    Known problem to Garmin that is caused from loading new software and new maps. Fix: Turn the unit off. Then hold down the left affor key and scroll roller with left hand. With those two held down, then hold down the power button. If done correctly, the screen will come on saying the unit is going to reset. It tells you that destination information, etc. entered by you will be lost and makes you answer yes that losing that information is OK to get the unit to reset. Seems then that everything again works OK.

    Same problem!!! I have now spent over 5 hours today just trying to update my i2 Streetpilot, and add another state. Two days before Christmas, I have other things to do, but we are also trying to leave town, into new territory, and would like to take the Garmin with us. SO FRUSTRATING!!! Garmin.com offers little if any support, so I was very happy to find this site!

    After updating my Streetpilot, it totally went blank. This is after trying countless times to do it, and since I own a Mac, I have to go to someone else's house to even to this. And then to come away with not only an UN-updated unit, but a BLANK one, and right before a trip.

    Anyway, your tip of holding Left button and Scroll Roller down simultaneously, then pushing the Power button RESTORED everything. THANK YOU! TOTALLY RAD!!! YOU ROCK!!!

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.
