Re: Mmy garmin is not giving me expressway direction

If it is not sending you on the expressway it could be due to your settings. I live in Virginia where a major highway is a "carpool" road some of the time. If I have carpool set to "Avoid" then it will always take me along the back roads. Also make sure you don't have highways or toll roads set to Avoid.

My garmin nuvi 1300 only takes me in streets and I want to used only fwys how do I fixe my garmin

You need to get in to your settings on your unit. Change your setting from the opposite of what you have it. Im assuming you have it set at shortest distance, change it to the opposite fastest distance (or way) just change it to the opposite of what you have it set at now and will take you on expressways before it puts you on the streets.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me some feedback.

Wrong directions at final destination

I still have the problem. However I expect Garmin support to solve it for me at no cost. If Garmin charges for this simple problem, then the next 3 models I buy will not be by Garmin. Rgds.

Nuvi 260 question

Yes it does.
You would have to pay for the Map
Yes, it can give directions in Spanish
You'll have to download that language (free) from Garmin.
But before you do anything you must download the free Garmin UPDATER
Do that here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website:
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Gives numbers instead of names on main rds and highways

The Garmins are designed to read the highway or interstate numbers instead of names. This is because on the markers on the side of the road, they are labeled by numbers. Here in NY it calls the Long Island Expressway I-495, the Clearview I-295, etc. If the unit is speaking the names of surface streets, it is working as it was built to.
