I read a blog about these units, and a lot of them seem to have problems. Here is an excert from "":
A nice feature is the SD card expansion slot which allows you to download and run TomTom software from the Binatone B350. Running the resident Navigation software and comparing it with TomTom v7 loaded onto the SD expansion card showed only minor variation in route planning.
Map updates are available from Binatone.

Terrible satnav – not as good as my AtoZ – Mr. Peter Gaunt – Manchester, UK
This is absolutely terrible. It can 20 minutes to find satellites. It’s fine on motorways, but don’t attempt to use it in towns, as it only gets confused and lost.
I don’t know whether it’s the software or the hardware. I’ve tried two and they are both bad.
Suggest investing in AtoZ maps.

DONT BUY – Jon Vee – UK
I had sat nav software on my mobile phone that hammered the battery quite quickley so decided to buy a dedicated unit as thought it could only be the same or better….. how wrong was I..
It would be quicker to go & get some sattelites from space & bring them to the binatone rather than wait for its attempts to find them.. Very frustrating!.. Also,when it does eventually find my position, it is usually well behind on the map in comparison to where I actually am.. It often gives me directions to turn AFTER ive passed the road!
The software is slow, the screen unresponsive & Ive actually gone back to using my A-Z maps as they are more reliable!.. Just to compare, I borrowed my girlfriends Tom Tom yesterday which was absolutely brilliant! If only I could find the reciept I would take it back to where I purchased it from.

Maybe using the TomTom software on the SC card is a solution, I don't know, but you might try it. Some people reported problems, but a lot didn't, so not sure if you're having a software problem or bad unit.
You might try to get your money back, since it's just not working for you.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

You can only delete the Recent Destinations and destinations in the Address Book, the Sat Nav will still store destinations you have entered and as new ones are entered the older ones will fall off the system when maximum is reached.

Gives me wrong instructions

Unfortunately there's no solution to this problem. Software selects what it thinks is the best route but very often this is far from the best route. Different makes of satnav use different software. In tests he best has been shown to be the Garmin satnavs. Even these are not foolproof but they are close.
