    I have the same problem, but with cities. My small town in Texas is on the map, but when I try to type it in the GPS gives me a choice of two places, neither of which is correct. The only way I can get where I want to go is using the map mode.

Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.

How is a space made when entering street names for directions?

When you want to spell a name, you will be presented with what looks like a QWERTY keyboard. The space key is in the lower right corner, to the right of the letter M. By default, the first letter of each word will be capitalized, but this doesn't matter for your street name search. If you need punctuation, touch the &?% button to change modes.

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

Yeah, well, maybe the street is not in the map base. I have a TomTom One 3rd Edition, and there are buildings and streets that are over 5 years old that are not contained in the maps.

One way to find out if the street is there is to drive to the location and see if it shows that you are on a road. If no road, then the map is outdated.

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.
