Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
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.

Keep right on typing it all the way out sometimes there are names that are so close to each other it has to know the whole sreet name before it will pick it up
