Rural addresses - Township & Range roads

Posted by fast242 on Jul 28, 2008...GPSGarmin Nuvi 200

We live in a Rural setting just outside of Saskatoon, Sask, Canada. Intersection are marked as [an Example Township 382 Range Road 3043-A]. Is there something that has to be loaded in order work for Rural settings? 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

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?

All of my Nuvi 200 settings (recently accessed, favorites, etc.) suddenly disappeared. When I entered a new destination address, however, it still worked. What would erase my previous settings?


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

If I put a street name in, like Ave F or a rural address, like FM 345, my gps says "address not found". Any help would be appreciated.


Some GPS require the letter of the street first. Also most roads, even those with route numbers have a name.

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

Dns failed when i tried to setup xbox live. i have a belkin router set up and my console is set up next to the xbox. what do i need to do?


Information on setting up port forwarding can be found at:

http://portforward.com/


If you want to go with a static setting this is what you need to do:

  • Login to the Router/Gateway by entering it's IP address in your web browser. (http://192.168.2.1)
  • On the left panel of the firmware page, under "Firewall," you should see a link "DMZ" for the Static IP configuration.
  • Your router should generate 25-50 Dynamic IP addresses for, choose a Static IP outside that range. (192.168.x.200)
  • Then go into your Xbox network configuration and set the IP address to the newly defined DMZ.
  • IP: 192.168.x.200 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (Primary DNS is the same as the gateway)
If you need more information about your router follow this link:

Vehicle icon next to road on map


Some SatNavs / GPS units have a 'lock to road' option. Go through the manuals / screen menus to see if it has that option and set it on.
