Is that same road that they told you to turn onto the same road around there somewhere? It may be that it's just off or something.

Cannot figure out how to tell it to avoid toll roads and find alternate routs

Under settings go to navigation and click on avoidances, it will give you a list of things to avoid like toll roads, u-turns, and a few others.

Many times my navigation system leads me to roads that are unnecessary to follow (like a tourist-view route), it only costs me more time if I follow exactly the same ways he asks me to follow. I wish it...

Go to Tools.... Settings....Navigation.....under Route Preference set it to Faster Time if you need to change it just press to Shorter Distance or Off Road.... if you change it make sure you press OK n bottom screen

Faster Time I use


Avoidances.....should be it....make sure Highway is Not checked... if you make changes here also press Ok on bottom screen

I only keep checked U-turns ...Traffic...Car Pool ...Unpaved roads

Before you travel, add your route to the GPS, do a trial run from home and see which direction it is taking you by pressing the turn arrows
If that isnt the way you want to go, on the map screen press menu then press detour, this will take you in another direction again scroll down the turns and see the route

Downloaded latest maps onto Nuvi 760. When using it the GPS position is offset from the road by about half a mile. The direction the gps takes ffollows the road but is offset. What have I done wrong

I have run into this myself along a certain stretch of highway consistantly. I was told it had to do with the geometry of the satellites in the sky in relationship to where I was at the time. I just deal with it as it doesn't happen very often - and only for a short stretch or so (a mile or two).

One thing you can check are the settings to make sure you have the nuvi set to "stay on road" Make sure you've set it for a mode other than "pedestrian" - which of course would allow you to leave the marked roads.

If you're still having trouble, don't hesitate to call Garmin Support for free, knowledgeable tech support. Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Why doesn't it say the NAME OF THE STREET that you are to turn on? It will tell you how far ahead the turn is and then tell you to turn R or L but it doesn't give the name. Also, there have been several...

I have a tomtom 920, it will say the street name to turn on if set to do so & only then if using computer voices, not human voices. Tuning the wrong direction could be its wrong or its trying to take the fast route via a highway, longer route but get there faster

Was going north and the map said i was going south

Are you sure you were heading north at that particular time?
Gps show your direction at that moment and time. Just because your road is going north does not mean that the road is always going north, sometimes they change directions to go around obstacles that were in the way of the road design, IE mountain, town, river.
The sign for the highway may say your are heading north when in actuality you are heading south to go around something.

The gps will not take into consideration the curve of the road, it just tells you the direction you are heading. Hope this helps.

Country roads issue!!

I think you've probably got the unit set to 'Shorter Distance' rather than 'Faster Time' in the navigation preferences.

This can be changes by navigating from the main screen to Setup (the spanner icon at the bottom) --> Navigation --> Route Preference
