Why when I try to enter an Address with State = California, my Garmin Nuvi 660 only shows "Cayman Brac" and "Connecticut"? I'm on software version 4.90 and I have "CN North America NT 2015.40 ([1] Lower...


CN North America NT 2015.40 ([1] Lower 49 States NE)
NE = NORTH EAST... California is not in the North East of the United states. This device only has a small internal memory so you need to use a 4 GB memory card and load maps to that card with MapInstall:

Garmin nuvi won't let me enter full address and the address i want is not on the list


Instead of entering the city, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

well you cant do it that way, you have to use the accpted convention

you can find it on zip code, coordinates on some models or by the following

1) Location City/TOWN
2) Street, road, etc
3) House number
if number isn't listed then accept nearest or midpoint

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.

My address is 596 Moores Mill Rd., Midway, Ky. No one can program this address into their Garmin. Why not?? The Garmin will go to 1000 Moores Mill, but not below this address.


This has to do with the mapping information. The map does not provide enough detail to resolve ur specific address. Its not a hardware problem with the GPS. I have the same problem with my address. Best thing to do is drive to your address and then save that location as HOME or set your HOME to those coordinates.

I PURCHASED MY GPS (GARMIN NUVI 200W) IN NY. MY SISTER SET THE HOME LOCATION TO HER ADDRESS IN NY. I LIVE IN PITTSBURGH, PA AND WOULD LIKE TO RESET THE HOME LOCATION TO MY ADDRESS. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO...


Too easy..

Click on "WHERE TO?".

Then click on "FAVORITES".

Scroll down until you find "HOME", not the green bar on the top but scroll thru the favorites until you find "HOME" and select it.

Click on "EDIT", then on "DELETE".

Go outside your house, get a good satellite signal and click on "VIEW MAP".

You should zoom in or out according to your preference and click on the vehicle icon, as your are standing outside your house and...that's it! Just click on "YES" and enter the name as Home when it asks you "DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS LOCATION AS A FAVORITE?" You can even change the icon and enter other info...good luck!

Garmin nuvi 200 ...enter a Start and End destination!


Yes, you can enter in a specific address as follows:

Press "Where to"
Press "Address"
Select State
Spell City
Enter House Number
Enter Street
Press Save
Press Go

If your Nuvi has acquired a satellite lock, you will then be ready to go.

When you select an address, make sure you select the right state/town since many addresses are the same and the state/town is the only thing that makes a difference.
Your garmin has a menu, find the menu and you will be able to fo to "ERASE ROUTE" or "CLEAR ROUTE" press it. It can be worded differently, but find the option with the words erase or clear.
For inserting the right address I will give you an example:
100 Main street, Farmingdale N.Y. is your address
touch select route, it will ask you for one bit of information at the time.
select town: Farmindale NJ, Farmingdale NY it will give you a list of Farmingdale towns in US. Select Farmingdale NY. If you live in NY.
next, it will ask select street: Main st you write your street, make sure you don't choose Main rd this is Main road not Main ST
next select number: insert 100 since this would be your house number.

Remember it is very important to select the right town and the right street to get to the right address.
You can practice by inserting addresses that are near to your location and then erasing it.
