Question about Garmin Nuvi 370

1 Answer

Location is not shown correctly

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.

thank.

    On the map of my nuvi 350, the screen reads" insert in route as via point". Whatis meant by this statement?


    When you select a destination on your Nuvi, you start from your present location, we'll call this point "A" and proceed to the final destination, we'll call point "B".

    A via point is some place you establish in between, we'll call it point "C". It allows you to go from point "A" to point "B", by going through point "C".
