Garmin 255lm wont' display mph or time to destination

I suggest that you contact Garmin directly and ask them which features the GPS is supposed to have and what it should display. Here's their website:

Whenever i put in the address from which i am leaving to go to a destination it wont do anything and also in the car it wont show me the road that i am on

When the GPS device starts up ( when you power it on ), it will take several seconds, up to a couple of minutes to locate the satellites, before it will show where you are (on the road / map). So, you simply have to enter the destination address, to get directions from where you are, to the destination.
It is easier for the GPS device to locate the satellites if the GPS / you are not under (some) cover, e.g. indoor garage, under ground parking, under trees, etc. Some times you'll just have to wait a little longer. [But you can enter the destination addresses even before it locates your position ]

Spent the winter in Florida and now we are back in DE and Everytime we turn it on it goes back to Florida. It isn't giving us the correct direction to our destination

It sounds like it may not have received a signal since you've returned to DE. It needs to sync up with the satellites in your new location before it will begin navigating properly.

- Make sure that your GPS can "see the sky"
- Turn it on.
- Wait for about 10 minutes.
- THEN try entering your destination.

Once your GPS re-syncs with the satellites in your current location it should be good to go and you'll be on your way!

Unit picks a city before I'm done typing the name

Nothing you can do about this, get used to it it is a feature that is programmed into your gps unit, you may be able to shut it down but have no ideas as to how, and i can't shut mine down either. Best suggestion i can give you is get used to it or try another brand of gps. Sorry

Why does my gps ask me if I want to continue to my final destination via the address I just entered?

This usually occurs if you enter a second destination after you entered the first. For instance, if you press "Home" on the unit, and then manually enter a second destination, it will ask if you want to go to the second destination via Home. This is a nice feature if you are stopping briefly at one place, and then going on to the second destination.

How do you operate the GPS system simple way

1. Find a spot with a clear view of the sky.
2. Turn on the GPS.
3. Enter the coordinates you want to go to, while waiting for the system to get a fix. (30 seconds to 12 minutes)
4. Once fix is acquired, and your waypoint (destination) is entered, follow the compass indicator to travel to your destination.

Error during planning

The most usual reason for this is a corrupted map. Try reloading the map. This certainly worked for me.
