Re: cannot enter state names

EZ fix. Go to settings. Click Wrench. Go to maps. Click maps. In center of screen is info. Click info.Up comes City Navigation N.A. There should be a check mark in the box. If not click it and a check mark will appear. That should do it. P.S. by click I mean push with finger. Good Luck Worty.

Re: cannot enter state names

Mine was doing the same thing plus telling me I was 30 miles away from where I was and going in a different direction. It fixed itself somehow about a week later.

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.

1. Touch Where To? > Address.
2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.
6. Select the correct street in the list, if necessary.
7. Touch the address, if necessary.

My garwin 1300 keeps going to another state, I have done the reset of turning it off and holding the right lower corner and then resetting, I have driven the car out to a parking lot and kept it plugged in...

Try to find your own home address (which you'll want to label as "Home").

From the main screen, select Where to>Address.
Change the State, if necessary. This will make your state the default for future searches.
Touch "Spell City" and enter your city name or zip code.
Enter your house number, and touch Done.
Enter the street name, and touch Done.
Select the correct street on the list, if necessary.
Select it. You'll have the opportunity to Save your address as "Home".

Good luck.

My garmin doesn't recognize an address

If you are having problems finding a particular address, try some of following tips. In some cases the address may be listed as being in a different city other than the one that was chosen. When the unit asks for the City Name, try choosing Search All Cities. If the address is listed under a different City Name, doing this will allow the unit to find the address. Also, when entering a street name, it is important that you leave off any direction or label. For example, if the address was 2536 SW Melrose Place, you would enter 2536 for the house number and only Melrose for the street name. Using the house number and city/state, the unit will fill in the direction (SW) and label (Place).

If you are still unable to find the address, the mapping may not have the address available yet. Please report this to our Cartography department using the Error Report Form which can be found at the following link:

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

When trying to find address it will only list state i'm in

Select "Where to", then "Address" then press "Spell State". Type in the state that you want, then the city name, house number and street name.

Garmin 350 won't let me enter City/Postal Code

Have you tried doing a hard reset to see if this clears the problem?

Garmin StreetPilot c340 settings

In order to get the unit to speak out street names, you have to have selected a voice that has a (TTS) next to it. This stands for Text-to-Speech. Press the button that looks like a wrench at the bottom of the main screen. Then press the button that looks like a pair of lips. You should see a menu with language and voice choices. Make sure you see the (TTS) next to the one you choose. The unit should then speak the name of the streets for you.

Question about entering address

First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address

Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.
