Question about Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS Receiver

Can't find street

My Garmin cannot locate the street in my city. I was trying to set my 'Go Home,' but I have a huge problem. When I type in the street name it refers a different street with the same four letters.
How can I fix this problem?

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


Hello,

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.
www.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

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.
6. Select the correct street in the list, if necessary.
7. Touch the address, if necessary.

My garmin nuvi 200 gives me a different street name before I can type in the correct one...


If the unit is suggesting a different street name, try re-entering the address. When you get to the city, hit, "Search All." Then enter the address as normal. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

When i type in an address it says no matches found. any address


start with a basic address of a main st in your city and see if it finds that. be sure to separate the street name and st,ave,rd. i.e
enter in the house number 123 done.
enter in the street name bank st done.

this should come back with a street for you. if not make sure there is a map location for the street you are trying to find. a newer neighbourhood may not be listed in your gps.

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need


If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

Problem locating correct street


Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.

Garmin Nuvi cannot find a new location


Check to make sure your maps are checked off. Go to settings, Map1.gif, then press Map Info at the bottom of the screen. Make sure City Navigator North America NT v8 has a check mark on it.
