You do have maps of california already preloaded on the garmin Nuvi you actually need to select "where to" change/select country and then city and enter the address.
Or if you continue to have problem then callGarmin Tech Support :--

Only shows us routes not canada

I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

Why my receiver does not work in Canada

If your GPS is bought in USA or Canada, it is impossible for the receiver not working. If you can't find a place in Canada, may be you can check again if the address you key in with the country "Canada" first. Some GPS needs you to put in the Country name first. Good luck.

How do I set Canandian addresses

You don't say where you are. I'm presuming that you're in the USA and have a map of Canada on your satnav. If so press WHERE TO and then ADDRESS. When you press address the country it's set to is shown at the top of the screen. At the bottom there's a bar which says CHANGE COUNTRY (if you have a second country on your map) Press CHANGE COUNTRY and type CANADA. You should then be able to set Canadian addresses.

When you press WHERE TO you should see the country at the top of the screen. At the bottom of the screen there should be an icon CHANGE COUNTRY. Press this and type in Canada.

How do I change the country? I need to change it to Canada.

Depending on the unit you will have to go to GARMIN and download the updates - the firmware updates and the Canadians Maps - all free - you most likely will get all maps free.

Garmiin nuvi gps,

The device uses SD cards actually. They will not however work with TOPO maps or Bluechart. They are primarily for loading media or city street maps for other country's.
