Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

This is the first satnav I have ever owned. I bought it for £ 109 at Halfords on 27th August 2010. To aquaint myself with it I have fed in about 6 various addresses all with postcodes of my friends and family and it has only managed to successfully locate 2. with no match for the rest. Is this normal. I am so disappointed as I have to make a journey next week to somewhere I,ve never been and was hoping to rely on it. I hope someone can help please.

Hi yes this is very normal instead of entering the post code go through and enter the address doing this will locate the places your trying to locate it will ask for city or street first then just enter the location and it will then ask you the number you want to go to, if it dont come up try entering the street first then the city.

they can be a bit tempremental at times so you have to try entering details a couple of ways but all uk addresses will be loaded onto the device so it should find them one way or another

let me know if you need further assistance ok

if your unsure how to enter the details by street then city then just look in the instruction and once you have done it a couple of times you will find its really easy to do, it can be a bit confusing at first but it wont take long to get use to it.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome


If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/xx/617/xx/1914/23/criteresn.html?sSortInfo=Prix-ASC
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

Where can iget a gps with irish road maps


You can get a satnav with Irish Road maps at any Halfords, or PC World shop or if you prefer to buy on line you can get one from http://www.mysatnav.ie/?gclid=CNXD4e3qlKcCFYVN3god71FJoQ

I'd recommend any garminn model. Please note that gps when used in cars, motor bikes etc are called satnavs while when used as hand held navigation systems for mountain hiking etc are called gps. Although both are gps receivers you don't want to end up with the wrong type of system.

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi(r) 1310(T) from Halfords in Manchester and was advised to get a "free" update after registering my unit, as it could be 1-2 years old. On checking there were no "free"...


If a new map becomes available within 60 days of the satnav first receiving a satellite signal you get it free. If you only got the satnav there may not be an update at the moment. While the satnav may have been a while in the shop Halfords keep the maps up to date. Even if there was not a free update available myMaps in myGarmin should show if there's an update which could be paid for available. If it says no update available you probably have the latest version. A new map normally comes out in November though the dates vary. Keep a check by logging into myGarmin and checking on myMaps. When the new map becomes available it should show up there. It will let you know if it's free or not.

If you want to check what year the map on your satnav is:
Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon)
Press MAPS
Press MAP INFO at the bottom of the map page

This will show what map you have and the year of the map. If your map is the latest version it would explain why there's no updates

LG satnav


I wouldn't bother if I were you. Halfords gave me a number to
phone which was for the company who provide maps for the
LG. Sorry to say I have forgotten the name of the company
and don't have the phone number.

The reason for saying that is the person I spoke to said it cost
£85 + P&P,not worth it when a new one costs the same or
just a little bit more

Hope that helps you decide.
