Put in an address and my Garmin was sending me 70 miles to a similar address, I'm wondering how to go in and delete the wrong address so that my Garmin doesn't send me to the wrong location again.

I have an older Garmin which I've used without problems for several years and just bought a new 1370T which I tested on a 700-mile trip. 99.9 % of the time it worked flawlessly and predictably but the 0.1%...


mcdevito75 here, If your garmin is 99% ok, you may have to deal with the 1 % errors. Remember no GPS is stsated as flwless, and we need 4--5 statlite hook ups for GPS. I'm in Florida and Use my Venturer GPS at times it takes an hour to go someplace and only 20 minutes to return, go figure I guess.

I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose. In your case you may wish to post the unit to friends or relatives near to where you lived and tell them where to take the unit.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

Problem with my garmin c310


Garmin do send out update DVD maps for certain products. If it was an older unit, you maybe entitled to a free update. Simply get the Mapsource DVD. upload the maps to your PC and then transfer onto your Garmin unit.

Alternatively is to buy the DVD, which would be an advantage as it may offer additional maps to what you already had...ball park €60-70 Euro I think...Check the Garmin site...

Updating to new street software


Go to the Support screen at Garmin. They will send you both the Username and Password as long as you send them the email address. Garmin doesn't dump accounts once registered - it's still in their files.

GPS Accuracy


I had a similar problem. It was that the street addressing was wrong. Our street for example only physically goes to 199. But the software shows it goes to 299. This offsets all the address on the street, the farther I go the worse it gets!
