First, you have to make sure that you are in the right state. If you are looking for an address in Virginia, but the GPS is set to locate addresses in Tennessee, the address will be invalid. Try going into the settings to be sure that you are searching the correct area.

Do you have to type in your home address before you type in your destination address and do you always have to remove the map film covering to do so?


You can set your home destination so you don't need to enter it more than once. To do this;
  1. Press WHERE TO
  2. Press GO HOME
You'll be given a list of options. You can either enter your home address, Press SELECT CURRENT if you're at your home address, or select it from recently visited locations.

There's no need to enter it again. When you want to go home just press WHERE TO and then GO HOME.

The plastic film that covers the screen can be removed and left off

I know my PIN number but can't remember my security location. My wife has the Garmin and it's stating "invalid pin" she accidentaly entered the address of the location instead of the pin. Now she getting...


Sometimes this happen to me when I fumble the PIN entry. I have to switch it off and then re-start and enter the PIN more carefully. When choosing a secret unlock location, choose somewhere other than your home - it can be nearby but noe AT home. This is case a thief finds where you live and takes the nuvi there as most people make Home the Unlock Location.

Frozen map screen


Try purchasing a new SD memory card (brand name) and installing the files there. Sometimes the manufacture sends cheap SD cards and the data is easily lost in damaged or poorly made SD cards. I have a EVESHAM 2007 and installed the files from the original CDto a new SD card and solved freezing and other problems resulting from poor data transmission from the cheap SD.

Also, try going online to the manufactureer's web site to see if they have downloads/ updates available there to replace the origianl install files that came with the unit. Always put on new brand new SD card.

Hope this helps

Unable to get started


Reset the Tom and start from the beginning.

There is a small hole you can put a paper clip wire into it, underneath the Tom.

Question about entering address


First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.
