Add in dead-end streets?

Lots of the streets in the map for my city are actually dead-end streets. The GPS doesn't realize this.


Any easy way to change these streets?

    i guess i'm exaggerating a bit. there's probably a half dozen or so that i've encountered. it's just that i'm a delivery driver, so it stands out a bit more to me :>

    yeah...i've been using the whole mapshare thing...unfortunately, out of all of the possible changes you can make to a map, i haven't found a way to change a street into a dead end...seems like it would be a quite useful option to add...




    anyways...emailed the tech support...they said they would suggest it to the developers...oh well :>

You can add in a mapful of congestion/construction warnings for the existing map, using a CF card and some street & map program. Just use a generic prefix for the congestion so you can tell it's your note.

You should definitely send feedback to Garmin about how the streets end (maybe linking to a Flickr group full of pictures of how the streets are not passable,) so that they can update their maps. Speaking of that, you can also check that you have the current 'firmware' (and maps) for your city with their update tools.

What city did they not get good satellite photos of? Lucerne?

    Oops!
    Fortunately, yours has something called MapShare so you can edit 'on the fly' and get immediate route correction.
    http://www.squidoo.com/tomtomoneportable... says you summon the Map Correction button and call roads blocked, Points Of Interest moved, etc. etc. Maybe I missed something....

    LOL the flash video demos ...go fig...exactly what you mention. You get to sync it on an internet-connected PC to share corrections with others. I hope.
    Though it shows the display overrunning the uh...screen. http://www.amazon.com/TomTom-3-5-Inch-Po...

Cannot put state into address


The city has it's own page, then street number, then street name. You should be able to put the two letter official state designation on the same line as the city.

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:

Garmin nuvi 205w - When I try to enter - Glasgow - Argyle street -the street autocompletes to "Argyle PLACE" and I cannot find out to get round this problem. Is there a solution ?



Are you sure you have glasgow as town ?
There is an argyll place (different spelling)

Normally it shows similar names in a city and you chose the correct one.
Is the argyle place it shows actually argyle street ?
On my garmin it shows argyle (gardens, Place, road, square .... ) as one option and the 2nd option argyll place.
I have the 2010 city navigator maps.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

How do i down load new info-


I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.

If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.

Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual.

Question about entering address


First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.
