Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

If I put a street name in, like Ave F or a rural address, like FM 345, my gps says "address not found". Any help would be appreciated.

I received a GPS and can't figure out a couple of things. It is a nuvi 200W series. When I enter a street like Ave F or a rural address, like FM 345, it says address not found. How do I set it to work on these type of addresses? Thank You Nancy Hayes

Some GPS require the letter of the street first. Also most roads, even those with route numbers have a name.

Most Nuvi units you have to press Where To...Address....and on the bottom of screen you will see Change State / Province

First select your State..... then go back and select the City... it should now let you put the number of house press done ..then the street name

Inserting address


This is not a common problem but it is not an unusual one either. Problem can be as simple as a spelling error. You are looking for Smith st but it is spelled Smithe st. It could also be that it is s newer street and you gps has not been updated yet with the new street. One final thing, I am one of those people that has a hard time using anything with a touch pad. I can spend a long time trying to spell out names and keep getting the wrong one because the machine thought i was looking for w when i was actually looking for an l. Go figure. Try making sure the spelling is right and if you have problems with the screen try a stylus for poking at the screen, this might work for you. Hope this helps. Also one final thing clean the screen this sometimes help.

I put in address of AVE and it took me to street??? It came up with ST or Ave....I didn't know how to answer to the AVE?? HELP


When you are entering the address, do NOT enter the city name. Instead, press "Search All". Then enter the address, and see if it gives you Avenue. More than likely, the address you are looking for is listed in the unit as being in a different/nearby city (likely due to the ZIP code). See if this helps.

How to find a location through the address I try to type the street name but found out is no match found. Please assist.


If your exact address cannot be found, it is possible that your installed Map is not up to date.
Short from updating the map (with no guarantee that 'new' street will be included), you can navigate to streets intersections instead or nearby street or some other POI landmark.
Hope it helps.

When i type in an address it says no matches found. any address


start with a basic address of a main st in your city and see if it finds that. be sure to separate the street name and st,ave,rd. i.e
enter in the house number 123 done.
enter in the street name bank st done.

this should come back with a street for you. if not make sure there is a map location for the street you are trying to find. a newer neighbourhood may not be listed in your gps.

Not letting me put in the address


It searches the database for street names. keep typing your street name until it is the only one availiable. If it cannot find your street, then either: you are spelling it wrong, you have the wrong city/state or the street is newer than the database

Street name that is a number.


When you need to enter an address that is numerical such as the 52nd street, enter as normal until you reach the street name. At the bottom of the screen, you will see a button that says, "123." Press this button, then enter the number (52, in your case). Press done, and it should say something like, "52nd (Street, Ave, Etc.)" Press this button, and your address should show up. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

You found it. You must have a voice with TTS (Text-to-Speech) next to it. This is what speaks out the street names.

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
