    I have not had the opportunity to do an opps check on my unit but plan on doing so this weekend. This sending me in the oposite direction has only happened one time. I used the webupdater and removed the filter on the roads and try to give ample time for the gps to get a fix before moving. I can let you know after I do the Opps check. Thanks, Marcel

Hmmm, you can find the update details per model, or get a pc, connect the garmin via usb and run the downloaded webupdater, which will take care of all the figureing out for you! If it thinks you are on the wrong side of the road or heading the wrong way it will try to get you to a turning point or exit, or either you told the machine to avoid certain roads check the navigation settings (wrench/navigation/avoid) make sure all is unchecked. Maybe you got to give the garmin a bit of time to get a gps fix before you hit the road, so it has time to find out where in the hell it is.

How can one transfer a location from Bing's Multimap to a Garmin GPS as a favourite? It's easy from Google but I can't see how to do this in Mulimap.


Currently, sending locations using USB is supported only on Garmin GPS devices. You will need to close all browsers to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin and save your location information before proceeding with installation.

Plug in your GPS in your computer using the USB plug, it wil then detect the unit and let you download the plug in

I updated my c330 streetpilot and now it is sending me routes I don't want to take. How can I change the routes or delete certain highways from the route?


You can tell the unit if you would rather go Shorter Distance or Faster Time. You can also tell the unit you would like to avoid highways. But you cannot tell the unit you would like to avoid CERTAIN highways, nor can you delete individual roads from the unit. If you do not like the route the unit selects, you can press the Detour button at the bottom of the screen (once the route has been selected). If you know a better way to begin your journey, simply go that way and the unit will recalculate your route.

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada


Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.

Nuvi not working properly


I had the same problem until i realized it was I myself who messed things up. What you probably did was change the settings to "pedestrian" and forgot to change it back to driving. When you set your system to pedestrian, it does not recalculate a new driving route because it assumes you can just walk there. (You can walk in any direction very easily, so no need to recalculate).

If your garmin is also sending you down a one way street, thats another tip you are on the pedestrian setting. (If your walking, you can walk down one way streets).

I am not sure however, what other types of weird things happen when you are on the bicycle setting, i havn't tried it yet. But i am positive you are trying to use your garmin on pedestrian, put it back on automobile. Let me know if it works, thx

Updating to new street software


Go to the Support screen at Garmin. They will send you both the Username and Password as long as you send them the email address. Garmin doesn't dump accounts once registered - it's still in their files.

Hello


You'll have to courier it to Texas to have it unlocked, or else send it in to Garmin to have them reset it. You'll also need to send the original receipt with the unit.

Return trip


Have you selected how you want to get there, shortest distance, or fastest trip. You can set these under the wrench menu, If you aim for fastest, usually it will select all highway, if you select shortest distance it will calculate a trip that will drag you through every nook and cranny, usually quite entertaing (sightseeing)
