Setting coordinates while driving . . .

Is there any way you can override the system to allow setting new coordinates while driving? Its a pain in the **** if you change plans (as I do often) while driving and have to get off the highway, park, and then enter the new location I need to get to. Can anyone help?

I'll tell how to do it. You need to be somewhat technically inclined to pull it off. If you want to try it let me know.

You can buy a kit to override the "parking brake required to be on" problem. I think I saw one on Ebay. Pioneer creates this situation so you can't "play" with the unit while you should be paying attention to driving - commercial installers won't install the kit for the same liability reasons.

My Gamin Nuvi can't unlock maps


Use a Garmin 1450


The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.


As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.


Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.


Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.


Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."


Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."


The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.


Navigate Using Coordinates


Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.


Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.


Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."


Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.


Use the Map Page


Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.


Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.


Hope this helps

How to find a position from GPS coordinates?


If you know the proper geographic coordinates of your destination, You can easily navigate around your destination using the longitude and latitude coordinates or other coordinate formats.
  1. Touch WHERE TO on the screen,
  2. Touch COORDINATES from the list,
  3. Touch FORMAT to change type of coordinates. Because different maps and charts use different position formats, the nuvi allows you to select the correct coordinate format for the type of map you are using,
  4. Enter the coordinates and touch DONE.
That is how you find a position using the coordinates, but you have to be very familiar with coordinates to be able to use it.
Complements of the season to you over there.

Entering coordinates


When you press on your Where to? graphic a menu will come up that will give you a number of choices including
Address, Go Home, Points Of Interest, and 3 others. There should be an arrow point down in the lower right corner of the screen. When you press that the screen will scroll down a page and you should then see the Coordinates Globe. Press this and the screen should change to the Enter Coordinates screen. This will allow you to enter two sets of coordinates for your destination.

How do i enter gps coordinates?


First I suggest that you download the latest manual for your unit. Magellan has the manuals

Now if you have the latest firmware loaded then one way is to press MENU .. go to create and pick Waypoint or Geocache and the new menu will allow you to pick coordinates as the method of entry.

The coordinates that I get are 30 metres off from the other GPS units that we geocache with. My settings must be off.


Yes, have you enabled WAAS on your 60CSx? WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, according to the instruction manual an FAA funded service to improve overall integrity of the GPS signal through North America.

If you are in an area which is not serviced by ground stations, having WAAS enabled may degrade the signal from the GPS satellites. Try enabling or disabling this feature.

To do so, acess the System Startup Page. On the Setup Menu page, highlight the System icon and press Enter. WAAS is the second available setting on this page.

Make sure your batteries are fresh; I prefer alkalines in this model. Set the battery type in the System Setup Page, same page as noted for WAAS above.

Another thought is to be sure you have the latest Garmin software installed. Visit their site to download the latest and greatest, free, of course.

Entering new location while driving.


You can find kits to bypass the "needs the parking brake on" issue - seems to me I saw one on EBAY - my installer told me about them but they can't legally put them in when they install the unit.
