Most likely the problem is that your device is stuck in a demo mode, you should go into settings and when you see demo turn that option off.

I heard that the new iPhone 5 does not include the Google Maps application, but instead uses Apple's new version? Is this correct?


Yes it is. Apple decided to replace one of its most useful applications, Google Maps with its own version, Apple Maps. Compared to Google Maps, Apple maps display much less information like certain street names, street directions, and subway stops. Moreover, Apple Maps does not have the street view feature that Google Maps has. It should be noted that Apple Maps is a brand new application and will certainly change for the better in time.

Garmin Street Pilot. No upgrades available from Garmin. Can it be updated some other way?


Hi Steve,

The Street Pilot line was one of the first automotive GPS devices from Garmin, and has got to be 8+ years old. Garmin contracts with Navteq for map software. At one point, Garmin needed to have Navteq compress their new maps so that they wouldn't need to increase the amount of memory in the GPS units and still be able to include all the way points, and new features such as junction view, traffic receivers, text to speech voices, etc. These new maps have an "NT" descriptor in the title. "NT "stands for "New Technology". Non-NT maps are no longer produced.

The new Garmin GPS hardware had to included the ability to decompress maps "on the fly" for display on the screen. As a result, the NT maps will not work in the older Garmin devices.

Your best bet is to either use the Street Pilot - knowing that the routes may no longer provide accurate information, or purchase a New, Refurbished or Used GPS. Garmin offers "Lifetime Maps" as an option for nearly all NT capable GPS units either as a subscription after GPS purchase, or "in the box" when buying a Garmin GPS. You'll get FREE map updates for that GPS up to 4 times per year. This assures you of always having the most recent maps available in your GPS. Look for a model that has "LM" in it (ie: nuvi 1490LM). If it has a "T" in the model name (ie: nuvi 1490T), it has Lifetime Traffic. If it is listed as "LMT" (nuvi 1490LMT) it has both Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic.

I hope helps!

How do I set up directions


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Assuming it is completely and fully charged - just TURN ON your device.
Let it locate the satellites.
Once it acquires the position [LONG & LAT] it will show you the position on the map.
Now go to WHERE TO to input your destination.
Choose the CITY, the STREET and the NUMBER or - if your map supports - you can input the ZIP CODE of your destination.
In SETTINGS you have to choose what kind of route do you wish [FASTEST, SHORTEST etc.], what kind of roads to avoid [FERRIES, TOLL ROADS etc.] and from now on you are good to go!

My best regards!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

Question about entering address


First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps

NUVI 250W compared to the C330 streetpilot


Are both units set to the same level of detail in the map options?

It is possible to choose the level of detail displayed on the maps. Look at your map settings in the setup menu to increase the map detail.

The level of detail may also be different if both models are not set to the same map scale. The more you zoom in, the more detail you see.
