Go into 'Where To', 'Favorites', 'HOME', 'Edit...', 'Delete'. Then from the main map screen you can tap the screen and 'Save' the location as your new home. You can't save a 'Home' location if there's already one called that in memory, so you have to delete the old one first.

 

(I have a 680, but I assume it's the same)

I want to go from Maryland to my NEW HOME in Georgia. How do I set it as home BEFORE I get there? DUH that seems like a no brainer and works on far older systems. Where is that durned Data folder?


Hello,

All you need to do is go to Tools > My Data > Set Home Location from this menu you have a choice of how to enter your new home location.

Hope this helps!

Default state changing


If you are talking about your home location all you have to do is go to your TOOLS / MY DATA / SET HOME LOCATION. You can then set your HOME location to anywhere you want. This is the only default location I am aware of. If this isn't what you were looking for let me know and I can dig into it.

I know my PIN number but can't remember my security location. My wife has the Garmin and it's stating "invalid pin" she accidentaly entered the address of the location instead of the pin. Now she getting...


Sometimes this happen to me when I fumble the PIN entry. I have to switch it off and then re-start and enter the PIN more carefully. When choosing a secret unlock location, choose somewhere other than your home - it can be nearby but noe AT home. This is case a thief finds where you live and takes the nuvi there as most people make Home the Unlock Location.

I am not entirely clear of what your problem is. But i assume you have set your home location, hece that is why the map always uses that reference to start from.
If it doesa not advance beyond that point when travelling to a new address i can only assume you have no satellite connection.
This is caused by a few things, but the main one is battery level. Make sure its fully charged.
second point is you do not have a clear sky view.
3rd point is you have blown the SIIRF chip lets hope its one of the two minor ones I mentioned

System software missing


Sometimes when a GPS unit is turned on for the first time or is moved to a new location, it needs to rebuild the orbiting Satellite Database and relationship to those satellites at a specific location. Set the unit on and allow it to sit under the unobstructed sky for at least 10 minutes, could take longer if this is the problem. See if the error message clears, and normal function returns.

Starting point is wrong


As you are turning on the unit press and hold the lower right corner then it will come up with a reset option. Reset the unit. If that does not work please reply back with the model of your Nuvi unit.

Resetting Home


I'm not sure I understand the question. When you take the unit outside and turn it on, does it show you in Tampa, or Decatur? If it still shows you in Tampa check the satellite status in the tools menu, you may not be acquiring your current location.

If you're talking about the home location that is saved into your GPS as a waypoint, go into your favorite places list and delete the place named "home" then go to the location you want to save as your new home and press "where to" and then "home". Since there is no home saved, the GPS will ask if you want to save your current location as home. That should do it for you.

Someone changed my pin on nuvi 660


It can't be reset without entering the correct PIN or driving to the security location. Failing this, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.

Forget my gps nuvi pin


There is no way to unlock a locked GPS without the PIN or going to the location where the PIN was set. If you do not know these, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.
