Invalid zip code

When I enter a zip code in my city it states "the selected zipcode is not valid" same if I enter my city name, Reno, it only gives me back "R" cities in Alaska.  What gives?  Also "previous city" shows 0 matches. What happened?

Garmin nuvi 255w missing postcode search


On my Nuvi 200, after "Where To?", you have to select "Address". My instruction book says: 2.Change the state, country or province if necessary. 3.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). If you are unsure of the city, touch "Search All". There are further steps, but "Depending on the version of maps loaded on your nuvi, the button names can change and some steps could be ordered differently".

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 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.

I tried to enter a valid address and it says no match found . I know for a fact it is an actual physical address. What am I doing wrong?


When you are entering the address, instead of entering a city press, "Search All". Then enter the address as usual. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city (due to the ZIP code). See if this helps.

How do I input an address to get the directions


Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Directions without specific address


From the Main Menu, tap the Enter Address icon.
2. Select the method to enter the city: Enter City, Enter Zip Code, or Previous City.
Enter City:
Use the keypad to enter the first few
characters of the city name. Tap OK to
display the list of cities found.
The button in the lower right corner is used
to select the sorting order of the list, by zip
code or alphabetically.
Tap on the desired city in the list.
This is the way I do it. Then I get the # of miles to the city.
Good luck & have fun.

Postal Code search?


Here's the quote from the Nuvi 350 Users Manual:

Quote 1 (page 7):

"You can search for a postal code. Enter the postal code instead of the city name."

Quote 2 (page 7):

"2. Select the region, city or postal code, when prompted.

Note: There never appears to be an occasion when I'm prompted to specifically enter a postal code, just a city. So I naturally do as instructed in quote 1 above.

Ideas?

Cant route to addresses in certain cities


Perhaps it is just a matter of old maps. According to the Magellan web pages, new maps will be available for download and update in August 2007.
