Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

2 Answers

My Garmin will not let me finish typing the street name.

I will give you an example: I wanted to type in "Long Lake Road", but as soon as I typed Lon, it showed Lone Tree. I tried several times but to no avail. This has happened several times with other street names. Please help.

Hard to solve over the net like this, but it sounds like your unit thinks you are somewhere other than your current location. This can happen if you turned the unit off at your destination and you aren't allowing it to update the location prior to typing in the street name.

So turn the unit on and click on the View Map icon to see where IT thinks it is. If it's somewhere else, check the satellite bars and make sure they are GREEN. (You may have to go outside to get reception.)

If your device is showing you at the correct location, I'm at a loss on what to advise.

Is Long Lake Road fairly new? If so, it may just not be on the maps yet.

Another "work-around" (government jargon) is to use a USB cable to connect to your computer, and then use the Maps from Google to find your address. Once you do, you can transfer the address to your Garmin by selecting the "Send" link on the box the points to the location on the map.

Hi there why is it that my sat nav only allows me to enter part of address or postcode and blanks out the rest of the input keyboard. There is no setting on my device to allow all functions of the alphabet...


magellan gps is that kind.the blanking out is to prevent errors. let put it this way. 123 west pine lane . for example
type city... then street. as soon as one letter is typed. search is narrowed to a minimum to make it easier to gps to search your destination with much less errors
type p.( for pine)
then. all letters visible. are for all street names that start with p in the city you selected before. .
then p i
a few letters will be displayed.meaning that only names that start with pi will show. like picture picnic pine pin pint pine pines
when you type pine as for address..
it wil show you all streets that matches city and street
123 west pine
123 east pine lane
123 north pine lane
123 south pine rd
123 south pine ave
your selection will be 123 west pine lane.
if you dont want to strugle with that gps. i highly recommend GARMIN GPS devices

How do i save favorites and is there enough room to have the name and address for the favorite. Garmin Nuvi 205


When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.

You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.

So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.

Entering street names


The Garmin may not recognize the street name you are entering due to a scroll error. When you type, it constantly looks up streets beginning with the letters you already entered. If you happen to hit a wrong letter, it automatically errors out. Have you updated the unit recently? If not try that first.

Load USB drivers to PC (if not done already), connect Garmin, turn Garmin on, run webupdater, follow on screen prompts.

Typing street names


It's predictive text, if you have spelt the name properly it should be in the suggested street names. If it's not then it's not on the unit.

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need


If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

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.
