I cant find my school name Tsakane secondary and i don't remember the address the street name is Gaiga Tsakane


Hey Bongiwe,
Depending on what make of GPS you have you can go to
"Where to?" then POI (point of interest) then "Spell Name". Type in your school name and hit GO.
If that doesn't work, Try this:
Go back to POI and Scroll down to "Community" and Highlight it (Touch) and Scroll down to "School", Highlight it and scroll down to see if your school is listed there.
OR if you have a GPS capable phone, Google it.
Best of Luck,
JP

When spelling out a city or road I get it part way spelled and it goes to aniother town that begins with the same letters


Hello,

When inputting addresses into Garmin units its easier to keep it simple than input to much information. Usually 3-4 letters will do then select search it will give you a list of all he items containing your search field.

Hope this helps!

When I try to spell states it goes right to no matches found on the 1st entry


After powering up the unit and selecting address, the unit displays, "In What State is the Address? and Spell State. When I press Spell State, it has No Matches Found. When I press Back and attempt to enter the first letter of any state, the unit displays "No Matches Found".

Nuvi 350 won't accept addresses -


I called garmin and they walked me through the solution - select the NA map version under settings and restart.

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.

Spell state on GArmin Nuvi 350


Go into "Map Info" and make sure that check box is checked, so the system can "use" that map.
