Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need

EG; I want the address Jules-Brillant and my Garmin is pre-programmed to give me 3 choices that are not what I want after typing Jules-B. How can I get my Garmin to accept the rest of the letters on the street address I'm looking for?

    Same probelm, except I can't access State, or City. As soon as I type the first letter it goes to a preset State/City and will not let me go any further. I was told to push the reset button, but I have no idea how to take the Garmin apart to get to it.

    I can't enter a city name - it goes to autocomplete, and the city I am looking for is not on the list. UHG!

If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

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


Hello,

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.
www.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

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 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:

I can't find anywhere you can type in a street address, does it not have this feature? If not, it is going back or what good is it....


Hello,

You can indeed enter street addresses with this unit, use the "Where to?" function to start pan to the address icon. from here it will ask you city, street, house #. For other applications like finding restaurants use the POI finder.

Hope this helps!

Do we have to download europe maps or will garmin C330 work in Eurepo


No it won't unless you have the maps already pre-looaded. Check this by typing in PARIS as the city and Rue de la Paix as a street test If it does not allow that then you need Europe maps installed.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for usingt FIXYA

My garmin nuvi 200 gives me a different street name before I can type in the correct one...


If the unit is suggesting a different street name, try re-entering the address. When you get to the city, hit, "Search All." Then enter the address as normal. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Problem locating correct street


Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
