You could try set the option to calculate the "quickest" route or one of the other methods listed if you already have that selected.

There is also an option to add small map corrections of your own.

This the one I use as mine tells me to go vis a road that is not open to regular traffic so I added a map correction to bypass that near home.
(not that I need it but it saves listening to wrong directions)

I heard that the new iPhone 5 does not include the Google Maps application, but instead uses Apple's new version? Is this correct?


Yes it is. Apple decided to replace one of its most useful applications, Google Maps with its own version, Apple Maps. Compared to Google Maps, Apple maps display much less information like certain street names, street directions, and subway stops. Moreover, Apple Maps does not have the street view feature that Google Maps has. It should be noted that Apple Maps is a brand new application and will certainly change for the better in time.

It won't accept the address I'm going to only part of the house numbers


Some GPS maps have incomplete records of the the numbers of the streets. In other words, let's say you're looking for 732 Main Street. The GPS map may only have Main Street number houses up to 500 and it will not allow you to enter any higher house number. This is fairly common with many GPS, regardless of make.

Your best options are:
1) Set up the address you are going to the closest one that your GPS will allow. In the above example, set the GPS to take you to 500 Main Street. You'll be about 2 blocks from your destination, so you should be able to find your destination without any problems.

2) If your GPS map is more than 3 years old, you MAY benefit from an updated map, but as I mentioned above, this type of errors is relatively common with most GPS and updating to a newer map many not solve the problem.

Hope this helps. If it doesn, please report back so that I can be of further assistance.

How do i down load new info-


I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.

If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.

Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual.

Text to speech incorrect info


Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.

The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150 Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.

I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. Good luck!

Error planning rout


I had this problem. There was a problem with the direction of a one-way street leading to my destination. I corrected it and then I could plan the route. Check the streets leading to your destination against a real map and correct ht e directoin where necessary.

Add in dead-end streets?


You can add in a mapful of congestion/construction warnings for the existing map, using a CF card and some street & map program. Just use a generic prefix for the congestion so you can tell it's your note.

You should definitely send feedback to Garmin about how the streets end (maybe linking to a Flickr group full of pictures of how the streets are not passable,) so that they can update their maps. Speaking of that, you can also check that you have the current 'firmware' (and maps) for your city with their update tools.

What city did they not get good satellite photos of? Lucerne?
