Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Cannot insert addresses!

My Garmin nuvi 350 won't let me enter state, hence I cannot enter new addresses at all. When I press"Spell State" box it jumps over to "no matches found" - it won't let me select State. I have no idea, why this problem has occured. It worked fine until a few days ago. I owned this device (brand new) since Dec. 2007

    Same exact problem, except mine is like this right out of the box.

  • Anonymous May 03, 2008

    I try to enter the address, but it cannot find the State. I enter one letter and it defaults to "cannot find."

    Just received new Garmin Nuvi 350 today. A few hours later I keep getting "No Matches Found" whenever I attempt to enter a state or point of interest. No luck finding a solution. Even after reset. ???

    When I press to enter State name, it immediately returns a NO MATCH FOUND as soon as 1 letter is touched. VERY FRUSTRATING ....

Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...


The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

Garmin will not recognize destination


How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

How do you change a garmin 265w to accept US addresses, might will not change to state/ countyt. I live in canada, can't you preprogram the American addresses?


Your unit should be preprogrammed with US addresses as well as Canadian addresses. When entering the address, you should press "Where to?", then "Address". The next screen should show you the province you are in, and the button below that should say, "Spell State/Province". Press this, then enter the US state in which the address you want to navigate to is located, then the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps, or if you are still having trouble.

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.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
