Why does xxl hang on name/address after automatic update

That model may not have sufficent memory to accomadate the upgrades clear out your addresses and redo the adress pages if your putting in old adresses from old version. The stored addresses could be looking for the outdated info thats not in the system any more I would try reinstalling all your previous addresses or cmpletly dumping your adress book an put in new addresses after update

How to add a n address to favorites??

  1. Go to the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press WHERE TO and enter the address.
  3. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see a button that says SAVE
  4. Press SAVE and it will be saved to your favourites. You'll then get an option to give it a name. Type in something that you'll recognise again.
Alternatively if you drive to a location and you want to save it to favourites you can press the car icon which shows your location on the map and it will give you an option to save it.

Occasionally when you save a location the satnav gives it a default name. You can change this by going to Favourites.
  1. Press the name of the place saved
  2. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see an option to EDIT.
  3. Select EDIT and you can change the name to something you'll recognise.

How do i save favorites and is there enough room to have the name and address for the favorite. Garmin Nuvi 205

When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.

You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.

So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.

Need to Update Business Address on GPS

How long has it been named "Kilgour Place"? My StreetPilot C550 seems to list it as being Frantz Road. Try entering 6600 Frantz Road, Dublin, OH. It looks to me (from what I have been able to see) that this is the same location, just a different street name (for some reason). Let me know if this helps.

We have several problems with our Tom Tom One XLS.
1st problem in the town we live in Russell Springs, Ky. 42642 we have a Big Kmart,Kroger Grocery store, Kroger Gas station,Rite-Aide Pharmacy,McDonalds and several other businesses all in Northridge Shopping Center basic address for the area would be:
Northridge Shopping Center
Hwy S 127
Russell Springs Ky. 42642
we can put exact address and business name and the only one Tom Tom can find is Rite-Aide Pharmacy. This businesses have been there for 10 - 20 years why can Tom Tom not find them.
We have a Keyvillage Shopping Center and it can locate that one. We would like this problem solved it is annoying.
2nd problem Tom tom calls a 45 degree curve a turn.what is up with that.
3rd problem is in other town s in ky and other states tom tom will take u to the old building instead of the new location why is that.
4th problem Tom Tom sometimes fails to tell you to turn when its to late to turn at the right turn another words Tom Tom waits till you get right on the road or just past it then tells you to turn. Why isw that?and we update Tom Tom at least 2 Times aweek if not 3. please help us in a few months we r fixing to take a long trip we r both retired and we definintly don't need these problems then.
