If you are driving in a city with a lot of tall buildings, trees or elevated trains, the unit will lose the signal from the satellites. This is due to the GPS receiver used on the C340. It may help to place the unit in WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) mode. This uses ground information as well as satellites to help you navigate. Good luck.

Alphabetical list of all the new Durban city street names?

Hello, Roy -

I have no idea why you did not contact the Durban (South Africa) city government directly and ask your question.

Fixya.com is a website intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about REPAIRING THINGS.

This is the link to the Contact Us web page:
http://www.durban.gov.za/Pages/Contact_Us.aspx

I suggest you make a telephone call to the Switchboard number listed there and ask to have your call directed to the city department in charge of street naming.

Best wishes.

My garmin doesn't recognize an address

If you are having problems finding a particular address, try some of following tips. In some cases the address may be listed as being in a different city other than the one that was chosen. When the unit asks for the City Name, try choosing Search All Cities. If the address is listed under a different City Name, doing this will allow the unit to find the address. Also, when entering a street name, it is important that you leave off any direction or label. For example, if the address was 2536 SW Melrose Place, you would enter 2536 for the house number and only Melrose for the street name. Using the house number and city/state, the unit will fill in the direction (SW) and label (Place).

If you are still unable to find the address, the mapping may not have the address available yet. Please report this to our Cartography department using the Error Report Form which can be found at the following link:

Depending on the operating system of your TomTom you should be able to tap the screen then tap the forward arrow until you see "add favorite".

No {post code directions

Garmin Quest don't do postcodes - only street addresses. Choose city first, then number (I always use 1 or 2 just to get a listing of streets).

Add in dead-end streets?

You can add in a mapful of congestion/construction warnings for the existing map, using a CF card and some street & map program. Just use a generic prefix for the congestion so you can tell it's your note.

You should definitely send feedback to Garmin about how the streets end (maybe linking to a Flickr group full of pictures of how the streets are not passable,) so that they can update their maps. Speaking of that, you can also check that you have the current 'firmware' (and maps) for your city with their update tools.

What city did they not get good satellite photos of? Lucerne?

Question about entering address

First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.

Problem locating correct street

Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.
