Question about Garmin GPS Devices

2 Answers

We live in a Rural setting just outside of Saskatoon, Sask, Canada. Intersection are marked as [an Example Township 382 Range Road 3043-A]. I haven't been able to find anyone that can enter an address like that for rural seaches. Even those that have GPS system don't find this one very user friendly

    absolutly of NO value.But what did learn was that I got sucked in to pay for something at is of NO value. Rather than saying the rural Twp - rge map find is not part of the GPS system search..I've also learned that others that own more costly units and thay also can't do the rural search. So why wasn't I told up front rather than paying? Thanks for the shafting you gave me. Ernie

Instead of addresses can I set the gps to highway numbers as (Route 39).


Hi yes you can but with GPS units its kinda funky for example on my TOMTOM I have to enter US route 59. On my wife's Garmin you have to enter it as Illinois state route 59 and on my moms Magellan it goes in completely different.

Most destinations and even points of interest can be found but it often takes as long as 5 minutes to figure out how to input the info.

An example for instance in my area I have looked up Fox Valley Mall but on Magellans unit it only shows up as Westfield Fox valley, I have lived here 20 years where did the Westfield come from?

Something I have done in the past is select "find intersection" and then enter a street that I know intersects with the Highway I am looking for and then check to see how the GPS recognizes it.

Hope that helps

I have a GPS navigation system ITEM NO W3G-01 which was given to me. Can this be used in the United Kingdom? If not what can I do. I do not live in the States Or Canada. I live in LONDON, UK


In the product manual it indicates there is a SD card slot, along with a USB port, so there is a physical method to change the map data to your locale.

However, you should contact the manufacturer to see if their firmware allows you to change/add maps. Garmin GPS units have this capability, and I have used their topo & Road maps together with very good results for off-road adventures out in AZ & Utah.

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0


If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

Rural addresses - Township & Range roads


With the Garmin Mapsource program just type in the name of the road and search. It shows up, and it's not saskatoon but corman park, although near to saskatoon, it's actually in a different area. This also happens when cities grow and small rural area's become part of the bigger picture, it's stil located where it historically was...looking for places can be sort of tedious. If I need to go somewhere, If i can't find it I ask for coördinates...the other way of getting there...A friend of mine lives on kitely line near jasper in Ont. the GPS knows the place as Line 3...huh?

I live in Canada Quebec near Ottawa, purchased nuvi 200W, it picked up my location and found surrounding towns etc, but when I search for example a train station it keeps defaulting to NewYork ?


Canada does not come pre loaded on those units. The update disc will not add it on either. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99 US
