Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

GPS always takes the local roads instead of Freeways.

My GPS - Garmin C340 - I got one on March2008 was working perfectly until I took it to New York the last week. I wanted to drive back to Burlington, Vermont when it started showing me all local roads. In the whole 300 mile it only took a freeway for 43 miles. After that I took it to Chicago, IL and wanted to drive down to Milwaukee, WI. Same problem re appeared - the whole 78 miles was supposed to be through I -94 W each time it was trying to take me into the local roads. I dont know if there has been a problem with the settings or something.. Please advise...

    I just checked my Avoidances:
    U-Turns, Unpaved Roads and Carpool Lanes are checked.
    Highways, Toll Roads and Traffic remains unchecked.

Why my garmin nuvi 2595 LMT GPS is taking me off freeways


Some GPS has this problem once in a while. When it happens, turn the GPS off and restart it again. Problems should be solved.

My nuvi 780 only displays large freeways and no


Have you checked to make sure that the map is checked "ON"?

Please see this link:

http://www.sharc.net/discus/messages/6/75.html?1253054729

If the map is not checked "ON", you will only be getting the Base Map information (major highways - no street detail) and you wont be able to search for places of Interest (POI's).

I just upgraded my garmin c340 and now it tells me to get off of the freeways and to take side roads..i do not know how to fix this. i just returned from a family reunion in oregon, i live in denver, co....


You can set the unit to avoid highways. It sounds as though this setting has been turned on. Press the wrench key at the bottom of the main screen. The press "Navigation." If "Avoidances" says "Enabled", press it. If there is a checkmark next to "Highways", press and remove it. Then press "OK". This should correct the problem.

Garmin Street Pilot c340 mount


Try a hard reset using the reset button under the silver trim on the front. Pull off the trim ring by hooking your fingernail under it right below the logo.

If that doesn't work, then take the unit off of the mount for a better look at the contacts. Re-seat the mount onto the unit and see if that helped. If the mount is damaged, consider getting a friction mount instead of the suction cup. For about $40 you'd get new power contacts and a new cord, and the unit would sit on your dash instead of falling off the windshield all the time.

All of this is assuming that the problem occurred suddenly after a fall, and that your battery is still good.

Cant get city name entered


How are you entering the state? You have to put a space between "New" and "York". The space key is the one at the bottom that looks like this key "[" sideways. If you type it as "NEWY" it will come back with no matches.
