being a GPS the unit should automatically know what your location is, if you find that it does not know where you are try resetting the unit and give it 20 minutes stand alone to see if it will lock satellites for you. If this does not work it may need an update using Garmins WebUpdater Software.
If all else fail try giving garmin customer support a call.

Hope this helps!

I am driving a van picking up school children. Can I put multiple locations in the device

If you do not have your manual, you can download one here.

Recommend adding multiple locations as way points, so if you have to skip a pickup, you just navigate to the next one. You can put multiple locations on the device.

If many people are waiting for printouts, and nothing is actually being printed, the printer may be out of paper; the printer will indicate this on its display. To load paper into the N4525 printer, simply pull out the tray #1 or #2 located at the bottom of the printer in the front, and put the paper in the bin. Put the tray back into the printer. To load paper into the N24 printer, locate the tray in the front of the printer. <br />Pull the tray out, and locate the bin indicated by the large arrow in the lower left-hand corner. This is the side where you put the paper. Then, push tray 4 back in to the printer<br />.Make sure you put the paper on the correct side of the tray. This is the most common error. There are usually diagrams on the inside of the trays indicating how to put in the paper.
