Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

I programed the post code of ferry terminal in southampton, fully expecting to bypass town on motorways but Garmin took me right through busy town centre - held up for hours. Why did it not go via motorway, which may be longer but quicker? Garmin Nuvi 1300

You probably have it avoided on your Navigating....... try going to Tools.... Settings.... Navigation...

under Route preference chose faster time...

under Avoidances make sure you dont have motorway (highway) checked to avoid

Which is the cheapest accommodation in Southampton?


You can get quality accommodation in Southampton. You don't need to search, I took help from accommodation agencies who helped me to get a student house share southampton. And they are charging me really less and the quality of the house is excellent. I have good room partners too who are from the university of southampton. And the distance to the university is walkable. For more info. please visit this page: http://www.poshpads.com/southampton-student-accommodation.php

How do I set up directions


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Assuming it is completely and fully charged - just TURN ON your device.
Let it locate the satellites.
Once it acquires the position [LONG & LAT] it will show you the position on the map.
Now go to WHERE TO to input your destination.
Choose the CITY, the STREET and the NUMBER or - if your map supports - you can input the ZIP CODE of your destination.
In SETTINGS you have to choose what kind of route do you wish [FASTEST, SHORTEST etc.], what kind of roads to avoid [FERRIES, TOLL ROADS etc.] and from now on you are good to go!

My best regards!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

My Garmin 255W had a battery recall back in Sept. It has not been used many times but when it does it freezes mainly when a wrong turn happens. I contacted Garmin after a trip to the airport last week when...


Hello,

I am having a little trouble understanding your question. If you sent your recalled nuvi in for service and got a defective replacement you will have to contact garmin and inform the of the situation. If you are at the most current firmware and are still having issues it is a hardware problem.

Hope this helps!

Garmin nuvi 1350 can't find signal


Fist you should travel around with it, and see if in a different area you get satellites.

It could be where you are at, so this does not mean that in another town or state it won't work.

If you try this and still have problems it could be the unit and you should contact the MFG and send it in for repair.

This is the contact support page I posted below if you need it, its a live link so if you click on it the page will open.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

Shortest Route and Fastest Route Garmin Nuvi 200


The problem could be in your avoidance settings. I know when I was in Delaware, a 1/2 hour trip turned out to be a 3 hour detour because I had set to avoid highways.

In Garmin, if it's checked, it means AVOID. I know the documentation isn't clear but I've learned from experience (trial & error).

Sometimes it happens. Garmin isn't perfect but it beats looking at a map most of the time.

Can not get route information desoite having had it programmed into garmin


Try doing a hard reset. Hold down the back button (leftside), the thumbwheel, and then the power button. This will reset all setting back to factory default. You will lose any custom setting, recent find and waypoints.
