I can't find anywhere you can type in a street address, does it not have this feature? If not, it is going back or what good is it....


Hello,

You can indeed enter street addresses with this unit, use the "Where to?" function to start pan to the address icon. from here it will ask you city, street, house #. For other applications like finding restaurants use the POI finder.

Hope this helps!

Wrong street number


The maps are purchased from the post office. The post office locally will many times call your address other than the legal address for various and sundry reasons.
Please check with your local officials and you will see what your legal address is. I found this out working for the Census. 1b8d9a5.jpg

My garmin nuvi 200 gives me a different street name before I can type in the correct one...


If the unit is suggesting a different street name, try re-entering the address. When you get to the city, hit, "Search All." Then enter the address as normal. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Dont know how you enter address as well as postcode


if you select enter city location instead of post code it will give you that option. you can leave some fields without putting anything in them to get the the street option just by selecting next or done on the screen that asked you for the city for example on the city entry option enter noting then it will give you the option for the street and number option.

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need


If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

Question about entering address


First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
