My Gamin Nuvi can't unlock maps


Use a Garmin 1450


The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.


As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.


Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.


Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.


Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."


Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."


The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.


Navigate Using Coordinates


Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.


Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.


Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."


Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.


Use the Map Page


Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.


Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.


Hope this helps

Can you in put a pre selected route in to the Garmin Nuvi 1310 GPS so that i can have the route in turn by turn before i leave home


Sure and your doing the correct thing good thinking, always check the route before you go there are way to many ways to get there....

When you input the destination let it calculate then press the green bar on top where it says which way to turn.... it will then let you see which way its traveling, you can arrow down turn by turn or on bottom of screen press show map and give you the route highlighted with a green flag and checkered flag

How to enter Rt 46 as destination. will not


Hello. You are correct, You can not enter a route as a destination because it is not one point on a map. What you could do is enter an intersection, drive to it, then enter another along Route 46. Hope this helps you. Regards, Joe

I programed the home address in my tom tom but it was wrong. how do i delete it


Quite simple:
Instead of using 'Navigate to' option, use the 'Change preferences' then select 'Change Home Location' and re-enter the correct address via 'Address' or 'Recent destination'.

Hope it helps!

How do you get out of a route that is programmed


Most GPS devices (All Garmins) have a "cancel routing" or "Stop Current Route" button on the menu. I have a menu page that offers - recalculation, cancel or Add a route. You should too!

The TOM TOM One manual says

Start-up preferences
This button may only be available if all menu options are shown. To show all
menu options, tap Show ALL menu options.
For more information, see Hidden buttons and features on page29.
Tap this button to set what your ONE should do when you first switch it on. The
following options are available:

Continue where I left off - your ONE starts as it was when you switched it off.
Start-up

Ask for a destination - your ONE starts with Navigate to... menu. You can enter
preferences

I am trying to put in multiple destinations for the same trip. When I try to put in my second destination it keeps going back to my home site not my first destination. It starts the trip for my second...


The Nuvi you have does not support multiple destinations in a route. you can have 1 destination and 1 via point. So if you are going to a destination and you need to add a stop in the route, you can add the 2nd point to go to and then continue to the original destination.

Tomtom not finding gps satellites


i had exactly the same problem, i dont really know how i solved it but first i thought it could be a memory problem slowing the gps signel so i reset the tom tom to factory settings then downloaded the updates from the tom tom home program of corce i lost all my destinations but i didnt want to do a back up just incase one of the updates had a virus or something so if u want to keep them i sugest u write them down first.and then i got a safty pin and pressed the reset button underneath where the memory card goes twice the second time i held it down for about 10 seconds then i looked for updates again from tom tom home. after that in tom tom home there is an option where u can operate your tom tom on your pc so i tryed that and i put in a destination on the pc and clicked on demo tour so i watched the route first it was a bit slow but started to speed up a little. after it had finished i un plugged the sat nav and went for a walk with it around the house soon as i went out side and set a destination it found 6 gps signels,make sure yhe battery is charged to at least half. well i hope anyone who follows my steps gets the same results, thought i lost 200 quid cos i have had it over two years and its only guarenteed for 12 months. well good luck.

it may be trying to get you back on track or if when turning it on it trys to take you a previously sort location you may have set this as your home. make sure your actual home address is stored as your home address on the gps unit.
