The Nuvi does not have the planning capability
. All you can do is tell it where your destination is and it tell u were to go. I wanted to do the same ting when i bought my GPS unit and was upset that it wouold not do it.
there may be some tips/ tricks found on the message forum at garmins web site:

You can simply Google the manuals.

A free tip for South Africa (and other countries): Always use the option of finding the fastest route and never the the shortest route. It is not specifically mentioned, but the fastest route is always the safest route as well :)

My Garmin says no detailed maps found that support routing? It will not go away and the reset I tried didn't work. ???

Did you try a Hard Reset, or just push the button on the bottom of your Garmin Nuvi 205?

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

My nuvi shut off and does not want to come back on

When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.
