Re: GPS looses direction in city streets
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.

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
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". Tap "add favorite" then tap "address", then tap "street and house number". Type in the city. This will bring up a screen with several cities on it. Select the city you want, then type in the street name. the next screen will let you put the street number in. tap done. Tap OK on the next screen.
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?
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.
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.
