Directions without specific address

Recently while on a trip, I wanted to find distances and directions to another city but didn't have a specific address so I just had to make up an address. This would often take me off of the route that I needed to be on. How can I can driving directions without a specific address?

From the Main Menu, tap the Enter Address icon.
2. Select the method to enter the city: Enter City, Enter Zip Code, or Previous City.
Enter City:
Use the keypad to enter the first few
characters of the city name. Tap OK to
display the list of cities found.
The button in the lower right corner is used
to select the sorting order of the list, by zip
code or alphabetically.
Tap on the desired city in the list.
This is the way I do it. Then I get the # of miles to the city.
Good luck & have fun.

Where can I find directions for using the scanner feature?


Ricoh has the manual online. The scanner wants to scan to a folder that has been SHARED, on a computer somewhere. This setup happens easiest by accessing the printer from a computer, rather than the input pad on the machine. the address will be similar to http://192.168.xx.x/web/user/en/websys/webArch/mainFrame.cgi, and this address goes into the address bar (NOT search) of your browser.

The directions in the Ricoh manual will give you the specifics....

Getting to a specific address


Next time you want to go to a specific address, do not enter the city. Instead, hit "Search All". Then enter the address as normal. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

The "Origional" software will not allow you to input a street address. The newer N30 software will input street addresses, as well many more POI's, as well as via directions. I have the original software, plus the newer N30 software. Let me know if I can help! Joe
