The unit does not "guess" what name you are trying to enter. It provides you with a list (even if the list only contains one name) of places in it's database for the location you are telling it you want to go, similar to what you are typing.

If it is providing you with incorrect places, start re-entering the address but do not enter the city. When it asks, press "Search All" instead. Then enter the address you want to find. It may be that what you are searching for is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. See if this helps.
