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:

My Garmin Nuvi 205w with USA maps wouldn't let me enter the State of California when I recently visited there. Every time I got as far as entering Ca in the state/province section, it would instantly go to...


If you are using the USA maps make sure its the City Navigator North American NT

Seem to me it is still working with your map from the Carribean, this would have to be changed in the map area located on you nuvi, it will only give you one map of that country at a time.

When you visit you must change it here..... Tools.... Settings...Maps...on bottom of screen press Map Info

when in the USA always have City Navigator North American NT checked and uncheck your area

How do I input an address to get the directions


Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Canada maps


After pressing Where To?, then Address, you should see a screen that says the state you were last in, and below that it should say something to the effect of Enter State/Province. Press this, then enter the Canadian Province you wish to navigate to, such as Ontario. You should then be able to enter the rest of the Canadian address as usual.

Cannot insert addresses!


Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.
