Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Won't change states

When I use, FIND AN ADDRESS, it automatically uses the state I am in and, while it will let me search counties, I can't figure out how to change the state as there is no prompt to do that. What am I doing wrong?

I found a fix. Reset didn't work so I tried the Clear All Information. As you power on, press a finger on the lower right corner of the screen until a menu option appears asking if you really want to clear all information. Select yes. The manual says you lose all your favorites and other stored data, but I didn't lose anything and I can now select a different State!

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


Hello,

The manual can be downloaded from Garmin.
www.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

1. Touch Where To? > Address.
2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.
6. Select the correct street in the list, if necessary.
7. Touch the address, if necessary.

I CANT GET MY GARMIN TO GIVE ME MY HOME ADDRESS IT IS GIVING ME ANOTHER STATE


if you recently updated the maps then you will have noticed a user interface change. press where to, then address, and at the first screen it will ask you to change county etc. do it there and then you should be able to navigate again.

p.s you will have to change the state each time you want to travel out of state if you do not know the co-ordinates.

hope that helps

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
