Question about Garmin Nuvi 370
I entered a destination point into my Garmin Nuvi 370 and started driving. In a while I turned the device off because I was familiar with a route. When I was close to the destination, I turned the device on, chose the same destination and clicked Go. However,the device showed my home (starting) location rather than the one I was currently in. What is the reason of this problem?
Everytime u turn the GPS device on it takes anywhere from 30secs to 4 mins to find and lock in the satellites . Once the satellites locked in it will be then start taking ur commands. In ur case u turned it off as u started driving and when u restarted it , it had a memory of where u turned it off and displayed u the location where u turned it off which was ur home, right, now if u would have waited till some satellites locked in , it would have then automatically displayed ur then current location. so next time when u start the unit (any GPS) wait till it locks in the satellites.

Turn on your Nuvi 260W.
Enter the four-digit PIN you chose when you locked the device. If you have forgotten the PIN, proceed to Step 3.
Drive to your security location. When you reach your security location the Nuvi 260W will unlock automatically. If you forgot your security location or cannot drive there, proceed to Step 4.
Call Garmin to unlock your device. You need your receipt to complete the process. Call 1-800-800-1020 in the U.S., 1-866-429-9296 in Canada. See Resources for the Garmin support webpage.
