Question about Garmin nuvi 310 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Our gps is giving us bad directions

We have put the correct address for home into the gps-it shows up on the correct street on the map but the directions continued to direct us away from our home. We have noticed a number of times that the directions it is giving us are not accurate-what do we do?
On another occasion as we came up Leslie street on to the 401 in Toronto it gave us the wrong exit and would have had us going in the wrong direction.

Some GPSs are unable to "learn". For example, directions from my house misdirect me to the nearest highway - way out of the way. Also, it lists addresses in a town I don't live in.

SOURCE: Map problem

There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.

With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.

How can i get a current street view of an address


you didn't mention any specific GPS device. However, if you go to Google Maps and insert the address (1) you wish to see. Once you hit retrun, Goolgle will show the map of your location and have a small street view (2). Click on the smaller street view and it will go to fullscreen. By clicking and dragging anywhere within the image, you can rotate the image 360 degrees (3). 84c73ad6-c2df-49f5-b6ec-3e158a5fe2cc.jpg

Wrong speed limit show


For posted speed limits, street names, etc, corrections can be made using the map corrections tab. For correcting a home address, I do not know. In fact, I have the same problem, i.e., an incorrect or unrecognized home address was enterred that I need to correct.

Spoken directions do not give actual street names


Hello, Mike, congratulations on your purchase of the gps. Here's what you should do:

Tap MENU - SETTINGS - REGIONAL.

Choose Voice Profile. This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button, you can select a new one from the list of available languages and speakers. For the speaker to announce actual street names you must select a language that indicates TTS (Text-To-Speech).

To hear a sample voice just tap on any of languages. Tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.

Streets not visible on Garmin 200w


First try this: I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

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!
