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

you have to select the state for which you want to find an address before it will find it. So search by state first, then enter an address. Hope this helps, good luck !!

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


Hello,

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.
www.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

1. Touch Where To? > Address.
2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.
6. Select the correct street in the list, if necessary.
7. Touch the address, if necessary.

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.

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:

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

I enter the address and city and it shows a default address not what i want.


If the unit is showing you a different address than what you are looking for, it is possible it does not recognize the address you entered as being in the city you entered. Sometimes the address in the unit is listed as being in a different/nearby city (due to a ZIP code classification, for example). Go back to the main screen and try entering the address again. Instead of selecting the city, try "Search All". Then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.
