Turns out the nuvi 200 comes with only Canada and bordering US States (Alaska, Washington, Illinois etc.).  It needs a map upgrades for $99.

I want to leave Michigan and go to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am unable to program this into my Garmin nuvi 1300. Any suggestions?


You will need to enter an address in Toronto for it to be able to route. Try "1 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario". That will take you to downtown Toronto.

I bought an garmin nuvi 200 in the States; now I am in Toronto, Canada but my gps does not work here in Canada; do I need to buy an update?


Hello,

You would have to purchase the Canadian mapping for that unit as it only has an American database so an update would help. For the price i would recommend getting a whole new unit instead of purchasing the Canadian mapping. 55 dollars would get you the Mapping 99 would get you a unit with both USA & CAN maps that would be up to date with Traffic capabilities. Here is a link to the product I would recommend for you.

Hope this helps!

My home base is Ohio. I am now in Texas and my Garmin Nuvi 265W seems unable to acquire a satellite signal for my current location. How can I get a satellite signal that I can use in Texas?


One problem, which I've experienced, are tinted windows (tinted with metal oxide). They block or distort the microwave signal to/from the satellite. Garmin has an optional external antenna which can be used, or you can try relocating the GPS in your car. Try it with all windows down and the unit near an open window. If that works you've confirmed the tinted glass problem.

Giving bad directions nuvi 780


Check your settings. The unit allows you to set it for Fastest Time or Shortest Distance. You should also make sure that it is not set to avoid major highways, as can also be done.

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.

Legal to place on dashboard in San Antonio, Texas ?


On Page 55 of the Nuvi Owner's Manual it states to check with your state and local traffic laws before mounting and that currently state laws in California and Minnesota prohibit suction mounts on the windshield. No mention of any other states. Your Nuvi Owner's manual is contained in your Nuvi and is also available as a download from Garmin.com
