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.

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

Refer to Page 8 of your owner's manual:
On the main screen, touch "Where to?", then enter the state, city and address at the next screen. Once you've entered the information, touch the address and your unit will probably ask "Navigate to there?" and confirm... and off you go. You can save addresses to your Favorites list as well.

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. :-)

How do I input an address to get the directions


Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Poor directions


Go to setting (the wrench icon) press it, then look for Navigation, then check Route Preference to see if it is set for either fastest time or shortest distance. If you want shortest distance, the upgrade most likely reset it to Fastest Time (default).
