Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

I have been advised to keep on typing the street name

I asked for a solution to the problem I am having in typing the entire street name - example - I want Long Lake Road, but as soon as I type Lon, it gives me Lone Tree Road. I was advised to keep on typing, but how can I? The screen goes to show me Lone Tree. I CANNOT type past the letter 'n'.

    I have tried typing in the zip first and then the street name, but it did not work. I do not know the area so I do not know the nearest street. Please help.

I want to have my new tom tom to say street names when giving direstions


Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not.Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

How to make it talk


For your GPS to speak, please select the sound files. Procedure explained below. Please note that although all GPS speak, only those that has an "S" in their Name (for example: ONEXL 340S) speak the street names. If there is no S at the end of their name, you can select any sound file for your GPS to speak. Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

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


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.

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

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.

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.

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.
