Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

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

When where to is selected and address is depressed the device only goes to the state you are in. How do I fix this so that it will ask what state and allow me to go there?

Re: where to only provides the state you are in--can't be...

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...

I have a garmin nuvi 680 when I push where to, then address it goes to my home state of Pennsylvania how do I change the state to virginia I see no when on screen to do this

Press Where to, and Address, In the bottom right hand corner you will see Change State/Country press it then select Spell State/Province - Type Virginia.
If not working, It could also be Penn saved in your favorite places, on Menu, select where to, favorite, and edit it from there. If you want Virginia to be your home state, but you already have Penn saved as your home state, you will have to delete Penn first before you make Virginia is your home state. You will do it from where to, favorite, home, edit, and delete, and you can set new home state by press Where to, Go home and set for Virginia.
Hope the helps

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.

When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.
