I was looking for a list of car gps's that had the ability of going to a location via coordinates alone. I have searched the internet a whole lot and nobody addresses the question. Even the makers (garmin; tomtom; ect) on their web sites don't give you much infor about what I want to do.

Thanks for trying.

Hi there why is it that my sat nav only allows me to enter part of address or postcode and blanks out the rest of the input keyboard. There is no setting on my device to allow all functions of the alphabet...


magellan gps is that kind.the blanking out is to prevent errors. let put it this way. 123 west pine lane . for example
type city... then street. as soon as one letter is typed. search is narrowed to a minimum to make it easier to gps to search your destination with much less errors
type p.( for pine)
then. all letters visible. are for all street names that start with p in the city you selected before. .
then p i
a few letters will be displayed.meaning that only names that start with pi will show. like picture picnic pine pin pint pine pines
when you type pine as for address..
it wil show you all streets that matches city and street
123 west pine
123 east pine lane
123 north pine lane
123 south pine rd
123 south pine ave
your selection will be 123 west pine lane.
if you dont want to strugle with that gps. i highly recommend GARMIN GPS devices

My Garmin nuvi 1300LMT can't find my home address and my maps are updated....HELP!


I have a Garmin nuvi 1390 and live in the country, so my Garmin was unable to locate my address. I'm not sure if this will work on your model, but it may be worth a try. What I did is this: I turned on my Garmin at my house and let in acquire the satellites, I then went to the Tools menu and chose "Where Am I?" It should now display your location using longitude and latitude. If you can save this location and name it as "Home", or at the very least write down the longitude and latitude coordinates and then use the "Where To?" function, select Coordinates, type in the coordinates and save it. You should be able to save it with any name you choose.
Hope this helps.

Can't type in an address. After typing first 2 letters it goes to different roads and won't allow me to type in the correct one.


I would first check what city or town your looking in....

go to Where To..... Address....on the addres screen does it say Select City in ( city the address is in ) ?

If not on bottom of screen it will have change State / Province


If you want you can send me the address or street name and i will check to see if the same happens here....

sometimes if you enter 123 N West St you will need to put 123 North West St or 123 St Anne would be

123 Saint Anne

How do you enter coordinant into GPS to find a


the 1212 will not do what you want it to do...its just not capable of taking longitude and latitude.you can get copy of your manual for your 1212 here

.probably the easiest way around this problem, is to get the address somehow (was there a phone number provided with the rv location list)

if you know the approximate location, you can use google maps to zoom in and get a street address
google maps here

you could also use google earth if you have it..if not, you can get it here very cool even if youll only use it once.

you can enter longitude and latitude in google earth

let me know if you need more help

good luck

Can my TomTom XXL 540-S be used with GPS coordinates?


If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination. This especially works fine in countries where the Avenue and street information is not available. Google maps can give you the latitude and longitude coordinates. You can fed those into the GPS and navigate. Please note, you will need the maps of the region involved. Click (Tap) on the main screen. Tap on: navigate to Tap on : arrow Tap on: Latitude longitude Enter latitude and longitude using keyboard, Latitude first and longitude next. Be careful while you do this and do not forget to enter the directions North, West etc.

How do i insert a negative (-) deg co-ordinate into my nuvi 200


Positive Lat Lon coordinates are for the eastern and northern hemispheres respectively. If you have a negative coordinate, they indicate a location in the western or southern hemisphere.

To enter a Latitude coordinate of, for example, -31 degrees, you would enter 31 degrees, but specify S (for South) rather than N (for North)

Negative Lon coordinates would use W (for West) instead of E (for East)
