This is not quite a clear explanation But i will take a hit on it and see if we can get this right for you.
When you select a new destination and select GO the unit loads a map of a place that you see regularly on the screen.. like a default.. say NY City it remains on screen without ever changing to your true location say Ontario and then starting to give you instructions to proceed tpo the selecfted destination?

Firtsly you can set your STATE of origin in settings

However that can become lost if the unit loses all battery power or is turned off completely, so its sotrt of a waste of time unless u keep it cxharged up all the time.

Now to what may be the cause of it NOT going to the selected address.

!st Check that the PORT and BAUD rate are set in settings correctly, consult the manual for this or use the autoconnect option in Satellites

2) the battery power is LOW and therefore cannot connect.

3)( you are in a location where a fix cannot be effected.l Take it outside, even out of the car and try it Some connections can take upo to 9 minutes as it accesses 4 satellites to get a true triangulation.

If none of the above work the news may be really bad. Your SIIRF chip is damaged and is costly to effect a repair. Cheaper to quit and buy a new unit.
TIP. Never start the car with the GPS plugged in to car power Always connect after engine start.

    It would have been more helpful to say that this gps is hard wired in the car and not just have the assisting people assume it is a standard GPs that is portable.
    The type of GPS that are hard wired are quite different in the problems they present.
    They are usually also part of a service agreement after installation with the suppying installers.

    Your request showed no brand and gave minimal information to help the tech to provide you with information that would generally cover the problems experienced with GPS units

    I think you were given a good all round response to the sketchy request you made

    Now taking it to the people who installed it after receiving help is someewhat cheeky. Why not do that in the first place as it is covered by a warranty!

This is the built in GPS unit that your car came with correct? Not a detachable unit? Also, when you have put in addresses in the past has it worked just fine? It sounds like it is putting the address is as the next address, meaning once you get to the address in the GPS it may kick over to the next address, but you may have left the current address and thus it's not taking the new one. There is a way to fix this.

Please let me know what kind of GPS it is for sure and I will help you out here.

Thanks

    Sounds like you will need the unit reset, to my knowledge only a dealer can do this. Check your manual to be sure, but it is definitely a software malfunction if it used to work fine. I am still researching this on my end. Let me know if you find anything.

    Thanks

    Sounds like the issue is getting worse. If anything give your local Caddy dealer a call and see if they can tell you how to reset that particular unit. I am trying to find this info now, but a dealer will know right away.

HOW DO I DELETE ADRESSES FROM BINATONE G350 SAT NAV


You can only delete the Recent Destinations and destinations in the Address Book, the Sat Nav will still store destinations you have entered and as new ones are entered the older ones will fall off the system when maximum is reached.

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.

All of my Nuvi 200 settings (recently accessed, favorites, etc.) suddenly disappeared. When I entered a new destination address, however, it still worked. What would erase my previous settings?


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin nuvi 200 ...enter a Start and End destination!


Yes, you can enter in a specific address as follows:

Press "Where to"
Press "Address"
Select State
Spell City
Enter House Number
Enter Street
Press Save
Press Go

If your Nuvi has acquired a satellite lock, you will then be ready to go.
