Why when I try to enter an Address with State = California, my Garmin Nuvi 660 only shows "Cayman Brac" and "Connecticut"? I'm on software version 4.90 and I have "CN North America NT 2015.40 ([1] Lower...


CN North America NT 2015.40 ([1] Lower 49 States NE)
NE = NORTH EAST... California is not in the North East of the United states. This device only has a small internal memory so you need to use a 4 GB memory card and load maps to that card with MapInstall:

How do install mapping to my device with MapInstall

Garmin middle east maps


Do you want free Garmin-compatible maps? You can download from here: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/
In this case select e.g. "Lebanon" under "Asia" or select the map tiles you need to build a custom map.
Then download the file osm_generic_gmapsupp.zip, unzip it and save it on the supplementary (micro-SD) of your Garmin GPS under \Garmin\.

Our Garmin 185 is not reading the right position. We are in New Zealand and we should be south and east but is reading north and east and dont seem to be able to change it.


Most GPS units require 3 satellites minimum to tri-angulate your positon (more is better but 3 is minimum). From the question your asking I would think the unit needs to be sent in for repairs because it is not positioning your correctly only garmin can make those repairs for you that I am aware of. Garmins website is www.garmin.com Go to the top of the screen to the right you will see My garmin there. Click on that and send them an email or call them on how to get your unit repaired.

I hope this helps you out, and any positive feedback on here would be appreciated.

I have a Garmin etrex handheld unit. The gps data from it does not correlate with google maps gps coordinates at all. There is a 30 mile, not feet but mile difference in the waypoints. Any idea what I may...


You need to make sure your GPS unit and Google maps are using the same map datum.
In your user manual:
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf
Page 44, Setup Options, Units, Position Format: I suggest setting to:
hddd.ddddd as this is the digital format and easier to read

In Google Maps, right click - Drop Latitude/Longitude marker and this should show the co-ordinates in digital degrees. Alternatively, you can hit the SEND button in GoogleMaps, and it will send the marked location to the GPS via the Garmin website. You may have to install the Garmin plug-in into your browser first, but it's well worth it.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate our solution, thank you.

Maps on SD card not recognized by Garmin C330 GPS


I dont thinki the 330 handles 4Gb SD cards I think 2Gb is the maximum that is why it isd taking so long and runds out of space so cannot properly load the maps.

I need to go east and Garmin 350 sends me west


Hmmm, you can find the update details per model, or get a pc, connect the garmin via usb and run the downloaded webupdater, which will take care of all the figureing out for you! If it thinks you are on the wrong side of the road or heading the wrong way it will try to get you to a turning point or exit, or either you told the machine to avoid certain roads check the navigation settings (wrench/navigation/avoid) make sure all is unchecked. Maybe you got to give the garmin a bit of time to get a gps fix before you hit the road, so it has time to find out where in the hell it is.
