If you recently updated the maps then you will have noticed a user interface change. press where to, then address, and at the first screen it will ask you to change county etc. do it there and then you should be able to navigate again.

p.s you will have to change the state each time you want to travel out of state if you do not know the co-ordinates.

hope that helps

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.

I have a garmin nuvi 680 when I push where to, then address it goes to my home state of Pennsylvania how do I change the state to virginia I see no when on screen to do this


Press Where to, and Address, In the bottom right hand corner you will see Change State/Country press it then select Spell State/Province - Type Virginia.
If not working, It could also be Penn saved in your favorite places, on Menu, select where to, favorite, and edit it from there. If you want Virginia to be your home state, but you already have Penn saved as your home state, you will have to delete Penn first before you make Virginia is your home state. You will do it from where to, favorite, home, edit, and delete, and you can set new home state by press Where to, Go home and set for Virginia.
Hope the helps
Thanks

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.

GARMIN BASICS FOR THE ELECTRONICALLY CHALLENGED


first turn it on and let the unit acquire satellites to find your home state. Then you can set up your address as your "home location". When I first set it up, I was able to pick up the satellites in my bedroom (scary....)...everything worked just fine.
