Re: entering street names
The Garmin may not recognize the street name you are entering due to a scroll error. When you type, it constantly looks up streets beginning with the letters you already entered. If you happen to hit a wrong letter, it automatically errors out. Have you updated the unit recently? If not try that first.
Load USB drivers to PC (if not done already), connect Garmin, turn Garmin on, run webupdater, follow on screen prompts.

How long has it been named "Kilgour Place"? My StreetPilot C550 seems to list it as being Frantz Road. Try entering 6600 Frantz Road, Dublin, OH. It looks to me (from what I have been able to see) that this is the same location, just a different street name (for some reason). Let me know if this helps.
Unfortunately not on the average GPS of which TOMTOM is Some of the more expensive models allow you to do a street name search. Many of these types are those in expensive cars though Mercedes, Volvo, prius
It searches the database for street names. keep typing your street name until it is the only one availiable. If it cannot find your street, then either: you are spelling it wrong, you have the wrong city/state or the street is newer than the database
I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.
If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.
Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual. HTH Peter
All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also
loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts
has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
Tap on "Locale"
The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right,
the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the
Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
