When you need to enter an address that is numerical such as the 52nd street, enter as normal until you reach the street name. At the bottom of the screen, you will see a button that says, "123." Press this button, then enter the number (52, in your case). Press done, and it should say something like, "52nd (Street, Ave, Etc.)" Press this button, and your address should show up. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

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:

Most Nuvi units you have to press Where To...Address....and on the bottom of screen you will see Change State / Province

First select your State..... then go back and select the City... it should now let you put the number of house press done ..then the street name

When i type in an address it says no matches found. any address


start with a basic address of a main st in your city and see if it finds that. be sure to separate the street name and st,ave,rd. i.e
enter in the house number 123 done.
enter in the street name bank st done.

this should come back with a street for you. if not make sure there is a map location for the street you are trying to find. a newer neighbourhood may not be listed in your gps.

If I put a street name in, like Ave F or a rural address, like FM 345, my gps says "address not found". Any help would be appreciated.


Some GPS require the letter of the street first. Also most roads, even those with route numbers have a name.

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.

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps

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.
