Hi peg, I recommend that you push the reset button on your garmin. it is located underneath the delicate frame around the screen. just carefully lift it off with a fingernail and push the reset button.

also, the data is only as good as what was given by the municipality. If they gave inaccurate data then garmin will give inaccurate directions.

My Garmin Nuvi 205w with USA maps wouldn't let me enter the State of California when I recently visited there. Every time I got as far as entering Ca in the state/province section, it would instantly go to...


If you are using the USA maps make sure its the City Navigator North American NT

Seem to me it is still working with your map from the Carribean, this would have to be changed in the map area located on you nuvi, it will only give you one map of that country at a time.

When you visit you must change it here..... Tools.... Settings...Maps...on bottom of screen press Map Info

when in the USA always have City Navigator North American NT checked and uncheck your area

Instead of entering the city, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Wrong street number


The maps are purchased from the post office. The post office locally will many times call your address other than the legal address for various and sundry reasons.
Please check with your local officials and you will see what your legal address is. I found this out working for the Census. 1b8d9a5.jpg

I tried to enter a valid address and it says no match found . I know for a fact it is an actual physical address. What am I doing wrong?


When you are entering the address, instead of entering a city press, "Search All". Then enter the address as usual. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city (due to the ZIP code). See if this helps.

I put in address of AVE and it took me to street??? It came up with ST or Ave....I didn't know how to answer to the AVE?? HELP


When you are entering the address, do NOT enter the city name. Instead, press "Search All". Then enter the address, and see if it gives you Avenue. More than likely, the address you are looking for is listed in the unit as being in a different/nearby city (likely due to the ZIP code). See if this helps.

I paid 119.99 for life time update reason I had 24 customer cards with address 13 out of 24 would not locate did update not 1 of 13 would locate after update Grainger Co TN.


How are you trying to locate the addresses? Sometimes an address is not listed in the unit the way you think it should be. If you cannot find an address, go to the beginning to re-enter it. When it asks the city, press "Search All" instead of entering the exact city. It might be listed as being in a nearby city or town, due to the ZIP code. See if this helps.
