How do i save favorites and is there enough room to have the name and address for the favorite. Garmin Nuvi 205


When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.

You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.

So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.

It guesses the street and i can't put in the correct one


The unit does not "guess" streets. It suggests possibilites based on the location in its database. If it is pulling up incorrect information, the city may be wrong. Try re-entering the address without entering the city. Instead, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address will be listed as being in a different/nearby town due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

Type in address took me 4 house away from address type in home address said house was left and the house is on the right


The directions are for approximate location when using addresses. If a street has 10 houses on it, the GPS software assumes that each address is 1/10 the street length apart which is why the address might be a bit off. Even GoogleMaps has the same problem. Their locations are not always exact.

How to find a location through the address I try to type the street name but found out is no match found. Please assist.


If your exact address cannot be found, it is possible that your installed Map is not up to date.
Short from updating the map (with no guarantee that 'new' street will be included), you can navigate to streets intersections instead or nearby street or some other POI landmark.
Hope it helps.

When i type in an address it says no matches found. any address


start with a basic address of a main st in your city and see if it finds that. be sure to separate the street name and st,ave,rd. i.e
enter in the house number 123 done.
enter in the street name bank st done.

this should come back with a street for you. if not make sure there is a map location for the street you are trying to find. a newer neighbourhood may not be listed in your gps.

I s there any way to program a business in the Garwin without the street address


With the Garwin GPS Device, it needs a location. It cannot save/direct/or perform actions that do Not have a Street Address uploaded.

When you select an address, make sure you select the right state/town since many addresses are the same and the state/town is the only thing that makes a difference.
Your garmin has a menu, find the menu and you will be able to fo to "ERASE ROUTE" or "CLEAR ROUTE" press it. It can be worded differently, but find the option with the words erase or clear.
For inserting the right address I will give you an example:
100 Main street, Farmingdale N.Y. is your address
touch select route, it will ask you for one bit of information at the time.
select town: Farmindale NJ, Farmingdale NY it will give you a list of Farmingdale towns in US. Select Farmingdale NY. If you live in NY.
next, it will ask select street: Main st you write your street, make sure you don't choose Main rd this is Main road not Main ST
next select number: insert 100 since this would be your house number.

Remember it is very important to select the right town and the right street to get to the right address.
You can practice by inserting addresses that are near to your location and then erasing it.

Problem locating correct street


Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.
