How to change home map on used Garmin i3 street pilot

I bought Garmin i3 from E-bay and I am in rhode Island and the seller's home is in Kansas and it does not recognize that I am in rhode Island. I registered, changed home address, tried to reset and erase all seller's data, but would not reset. I downloaded the manual and it did not help, it does however recognize my home addreas but the map still shows Kansas, Please help!!

    I have a Garmin nuvi 200 and I cant change the home location. If I click on anything in "favorites" I'm able to edit it, but when I click home it just maps out home without giving me the option to edit or delete it

    I had that problem when I was in Nevada then went to Texas. Just go outside for a few minutes so your gps can connect to the satillite to find your current position. Easy as that! :-)

You can just delete the old address by going to favorite and then choose SPELL on the bottom, then type HOME,then click on DONE, delete it, then start over, favorite, home , enter your address, or somewhere close to your home for thift danger.

Try this:
Reset the GPS (you'll find the reset button somewhere in the back of the GPS.
when you reset it, make sure your GPS is out there- where it can pick up your location (satellite).
After that- you can set your home location from the favorites area.
Hope that will help.

I couldn't figure out how to change my map location from Nevada to Texas while in the house. I looked all over the menus on the gps but got no info. So fixya told me to go outside for 10 minutes or so (I didn't need that much time, it only took minutes) with the gps turned on and let the satillite find your current location (which was Texas for me). That's it! So simple, I should have thought of it!

My garmin street pilot c330 won't aquire satillite. this unit is 2 years old, but never out of the box. i got it from my son and tried to set up. when you turn it on all of the data in the unit is...


Try connecting in your car and leave it on and let it charge while you are driving it may eventually find the satellite, it probably remembers the last satellite it found which was in Kansas. You may not be getting a signal where your are right now so run some errands and leave it connected in your car.
You can also go to the garmin web site and try updating the unit. You will need a usb cable and will need to install garmin updater. Make sure the unit is fully charged.
If this does not work you can call garmin and they are usually very helpful. Here is the garmin link which will help answer some more questions.
