Sounds like the internal memory battery is run down - it's charged from the AA's. Usually does not recover. Battery (the VL1220) is shown here: http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/battery/oem/chem/lith/vana.htm.

It' easily replaced once the case is open but requires a steady hand with a fine tip soldering iron. Local story started by me here.

Sealing the case up again is very fiddly - hard to make a tidy job with silicone.

Plan a route


For Garmin. Enter your final destination and select go. Select again "where to" and select new destination on route. Option of "New destination or add as via point" will be shown. Select as add as via point. Repeat as many time you want. Works only when "go" was selected - can not be pre programmed and saved for later use.

If you can reset it. I stop using GPS because after a few years of daily use, they start screwing up. Most smart phones have built in GPS that have real time map updates

How to set multiple destinations?


Some garmin satnavs allow you to save routes which have multiple destinations. The 265WT does not so the only way to set it for multiple destinations is to use via points. First press WHERE To and enter your last destination. Press GO and then while that is active pres MENU and WHERE TO again. Enter your second last destination and press GO. It will ask if you want this to be a new destination or a VIA point. Select VIA point. Continue to add other destinations in the same way with the destinations nearest to the end going in first and the closest to the start going last.

It's not ideal especially as it cannot be saved for future use but unfortunately for some strange reason Garmin do not include the option to store routes on all their satnavs.

How do I save a destination and reselect in the future


I am glad to HELP YOU!

You will find the previous destination every time when you will select RECENT PLACES/DESTINATIONS.
But if you want to have it alays as a waypoint you have to do like this: once you have input the coordinates of it just tap on that destination [to select it] and give it a name by saving it in POI/FAVORITES.

GOOD LUCK!

How do i save routes to adrsses i have put in


I'm sorry, but the nuvi 205 doesn't retain route information. You can save your destination as a "favorite," though, and let it recompute the route from wherever you happen to be.

How to program a destination


In general, once you key in an address and then select a route, the name/route will be saved in "recent destinations." If you want to use that destination, just select it. If you want to add it to "Favorites", then select "Add Favorite" and all your recent destinations will appear. Select the one you want and rename it: E.g., instead of "220 W. Walnut St." rename it "Grandma's House" and it is set.
