How do you re-set the location? I put in "go Home" and it calculates the route home to my address from California.

    Garmin Nuvi 360

    Is there another model number?

  • miss debba Aug 29, 2008

    Somehow my question didn't show up as I thought I typed it. Everytime I click on "go home" the route that is suggested starts in California. I live in Mississippi. I have put in my home address and it recognizes this but how do I change it from starting in California?

    To set your home location go to: Where to?, the Go Home, the "Set home", gives you two options "use current" or "Enter address", Press the "wheel" to acknowlege the message you will get when it changes your location.

How do I change home address on my TomTom via 225?


On the GPS itself go to: Home location
Tap this button to set or change your Home location. You enter the address in the same way as you do when you plan a route.
Your Home location provides an easy way to plan a route to an important location.
For most people, your Home location will be your home address. How-ever, you might prefer to set the location to another regular destination,such as your workplace.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--kkkkkkkkkk Online you will need to setup an account, and log in to change your address or edit your profile..
MyTomTom account
To download content and to use TomTom services, you need a MyTomTom account.
You can create an account using your computer in one of the following ways:
? By selecting the Create account button at tomtom.com.
? By selecting the green MyTomTom button at tomtom.com.
? By going to tomtom.com/getstarted.
Important: Take care when choosing a country during account creation. The correct country is needed if you make a purchase from the TomTom shop and it cannot be changed after the ac-count has been created. Note: If you have more than one TomTom navigation device, you need a separate account for each device.

My Gamin Nuvi can't unlock maps


Use a Garmin 1450


The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.


As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.


Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.


Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.


Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."


Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."


The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.


Navigate Using Coordinates


Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.


Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.


Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."


Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.


Use the Map Page


Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.


Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.


Hope this helps

Garmin nuvi 660 GPS


1) tap "where to" then "go Home" an option should pop up to save your current location as home, or type in an address.

2) tap "where to", then select the option you desire.  You can choose address if you know the address or select an icon that matches the type of business that you are looking for. The unit will list the business in order starting with the closest one. Tap the business you want and it should calculate the best route.

3)The battery should be fully charged before you use it on battery only, but it's ok to plug the gps in and use it.

4) If you leave it plugged in it will not damage your battery and you will always have a full charge for when you need to carry it.
