Missing the target.

My position on the map is off. I can get close to a target e.g. "fish haven" etc. when I'm on the water but my position shows me about 300 yards away. Is there a way to recalibrate my position?

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

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!

I cannot bring up a marine chart showing depth and markers on my


Marine maps must be installed on SD cards. The base-map does not contain marine maps. Most on-line or brick-and-mortar hunting/fishing stores carry map cards for Lowrance units.

Maps Still Not Updated?


You are confusing map updates with POIs (Points of Interest). Garmin does not keep up with restaurant openings and closings, to the best of my knowledge. Updating your maps will give you the latest street information (such as new subdevelopments, one-way streets, newly opened bridges, etc.) but will not let you know that the KFC closed or that the Chalet de Alpina closed last year. Your POI information is current as of the initial programming of your unit. You can enter POIs manually, if you chose to do so, but they will only be good as long as you keep up with them.

Some POIs are missing.


Nothing.
Not all business's will show up. Try putting in their address's.
Also do you have the latest maps. New maps are released about every 4 months. I bought the life time maps upgrade for $99.
Or, you can buy new maps when you want, but the are about $80 each. Ouch on that!!
