    are you saying that you need to know of some places along the coast that you can detour to? If yes, then you need to have a road map to assist you otherwise, it will take to the route it calculates. This can well be an inland route. In summary, if you're new to a place and what to travel a coastal route, the GPS will not give you the option of selecting between routes. You have to know some coastal place names and use them as detours - correct?

You should be able to "insert" points into an exising route. So, first enter your destination. Once the Garmin selects the route, you can then pick several points along the coast, and insert them into your route. This will force the GPS to re-route you along your prefered coastal route.

Unlock c510


Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

C510 doesnt turn on.


It sounds like you may have a dead battery. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin about a replacement.

My husband had the same problem with his i2 Street Pilot.
He went to the Garmin web site and downloaded the latest
updated software version. You can then chose the language options, too.
