Option 1: Use the reset button under the antenna.
Option 2: with the nuvi on, press and hold the upper right corner of the touchscreen until a message pops up about erasing all user data, tap yes, it will roll back to factory state. Now connect it to the usb port, of the computer, go to the garmin site and download and install webupdater and let is check if the machine is up to date software wise. let it install the required updates. When finished, power down, power up and try again to find places. BTW any SD cards installed? If yes, remove that card.

Is the map turned on? At the main menu, press the system tools icon and press the map icon. Then press the map info button.

What does it say? Does a map show up and is there a checkmark in the box next to the map description? Also, if the map is for a certain area, say lower 49 states, SW, well you won't be able to find a city in the NE because the map is only showing a limited area. If you have ample memory on the unit or have a 2GB or larger SD card, installing the full US & Canada map is the way to go. Make sure the map installed on the unit covers where you are and where you may be going.

Garmin will not recognize destination


How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.


When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

Will not allow me to spell the city that I am going to.


The Research Triangle, commonly referred to as "The Triangle", is a region in the Piedmont of North Carolina in the United States, anchored by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

So which city do you want to go to Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill?

Getting started


Take the unit outside, so it knows where it is (you cannot tell it you want it to go from a location to another without being at one of the locations). Once the unit has a satellite fix, press Where To? Then press Address. When West Virginia and Spell State come up, press Spell State. Enter Florida (or start to, until the unit pulls it up, then press it). Then press Spell City, and enter Crystal River, then the house number and street name or number. Press Go! and you are on your way.

Where to only provides the state you are in--can't be changed


It sounds as if you have an older software. However newer software, don't press address, but rather press near... at the bottom of the where to page, and select"a different city" or on the where to page select spell, and spell a name that you know appears in the adjacent state, but not yours...

Good Luck, GB_C

If this doesn't work, upgrade your software, and try anew...
