Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0

I have a garmin 350nuvi which I purchased from best buy in Port Richie Fl. dec. 18 2007.it has Canadian,pora rico and USA maps.I works well in the the USA and big cities in Canada however It does not work well in country areas in and around Greenwood, Nova Scotia.I live a 877 Fales river rd,Greenwood and it will not even show the road or recognize my street.My friend bought a garmen last December and he had the same problem especially on back roads.He returned it and bought a tom tom which worked very well in the same area.I can only conclude that garmen has not mapped this area very well.By the way this is not a new subdivision or road.

If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

Just purchased a garmin nuvi 205W in Florida. It


This device should find a signal nearly anywhere it is used. The further away from the earth's equator it is used will increase signal lock or "fix" time though. You should be able to get a fix by bringing the unit into an open space (few / low trees, buildings, etc.) and leave on for up to 20 minutes. The GPS should provide an accurate location in this amount of time and should be able to fix in a moment or so from that point on.

If you have troubles still, contact Garmin Support below:

I hope this helps!

Can't find any satelites in the Elmsdale and Marble Mtn. area of Nova Scotia Canada.


Hi: The GPS is now working. It found 5 or 6 satelites today without any problem as soon as it was turned on. Could be a system problem.
Thanks anyway.

The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.
