Garmin C 340 problems

This problem has recently started happening. When hitting "Address", it goes to spell state, but the alphabet page only flashes momentarily then goes to a "list" that has no states on it. Hitting "back" takes you back to the alphabet page, but touching the first letter of the state takes you back to the blank list page. How do I get this thing to take the "state" like it used to do?

Re: garmin C 340 problems

I had the same problem and finally found the solution. If you go to "map Info" you will see the version of your preloaded Garmin map database. Well, look carefully because there is a box next to it. Apparently, it needs to be checked or "enabled" before you can use it. Once I did that everything started working. Why this isn't done from the factory is a mystery to me. This should be discussed in the quick start guide IMHO.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...

The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.

1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address

Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.

Where to only provides the state you are in--can't be changed

It sounds as if you have an older software. However newer software, don't press address, but rather press near... at the bottom of the where to page, and select"a different city" or on the where to page select spell, and spell a name that you know appears in the adjacent state, but not yours...

Good Luck, GB_C

If this doesn't work, upgrade your software, and try anew...
