It will give you the most recent state, but to change it, look on the bottom row for the button labeled "Change State/Country." That outta do it.

How do I go directly to state without first going to city. I was trying to enter the city Troy which is in New York. However, when I entered the city Troy, the GPS went to cities in PA.


Near the bottom of the Whereto>City screen is a button to change states. Select it first, so you can change to New York, then enter Troy when it returns to the City screen.

Gps is stuck in new york it is shearching for singal


GPS in New York can come in contact with a numerous unwanted signals, including illegal GPS blockers, or it could be searching for a signal but it can't because of cloudy atmosphere. You did not state what model it is, nor you have stated whether it shuts down or freezes. The answer to your problem lies on the correct questions. That you're stuck in New york, I have no idea what it means. Sorry.

Cant get city name entered


How are you entering the state? You have to put a space between "New" and "York". The space key is the one at the bottom that looks like this key "[" sideways. If you type it as "NEWY" it will come back with no matches.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.

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.
