I want to travel from Edmonton to Winnipeg and my Garmin 60LM only gives the route for Hwy 16 to Winnipeg but I want to travel on the TransCanada Hwy. Is there a way for me to input that on the GPS?

SOURCE: Route problem

If you don't have "Detailed Maps" for the area you are travelling in, it will not have adequate map detail to create routes that are not on major highways.

To remedy this, you will need to use another of GARMIN's products... I believe it's called Mapsource City Navigator, and will have to be purchased for the area you are concerned with. This PC software will then allow you to load additional Map Data onto an SD card, which will slip into the slot on the left side of the unit.

You can find out about it at their website www.garmin.com then look in Maps

SOURCE: Garmin 330 GPS using abroad

In order to use the C330 in foreign countries, you need to purchase the maps for those countries and insert the SD card into your unit. You will then have to select the proper maps to use on the unit. These maps are available for purchase at www.garmin.com.

As far as getting around closed roads, your unit will automatically recalculate your route if you are unable to take the suggested route. You can purchase updated maps, but I do not believe this will help you will roads closed for repair.

SOURCE: How do I transfer routes to my Garmin nuvi 250

The Garmin Nuvi 250 does not support loaded routes. You'll have to load the waypoints, and then just go from one to the next, to the next. You can transfer the waypoints to the GPS unit with a USB cord.

How do i make my garmin use hwy 407 I dont see that option Garmin nuvi


This is probably an issue with the Garmin Maps. You will just have to watch and take the 407 yourself, and the Garmin should reconfigure the route to allow you to take 407.

Hi, Just opened a new 1490LMT. Can't get a satelite signal. Small red bar appears on left top corner. Also, I'm in Winnipeg and can't get the GPS to acknowledge Winnipeg. Toronto is on screen.


Hello,

When travelling with your GPS it may take 20-30 minutes for it to acquire a satellite signal. For it to acquire the signal it should be stationary so when visiting the family or in the hotel leave it on you should get satellite lock.

Hope this helps!

Can you in put a pre selected route in to the Garmin Nuvi 1310 GPS so that i can have the route in turn by turn before i leave home


Sure and your doing the correct thing good thinking, always check the route before you go there are way to many ways to get there....

When you input the destination let it calculate then press the green bar on top where it says which way to turn.... it will then let you see which way its traveling, you can arrow down turn by turn or on bottom of screen press show map and give you the route highlighted with a green flag and checkered flag

Hello everyone. I bought garmin nuvi 750 GPS six months ago. I use it travelling all over and it works pretty good. But I dont know how could i find alternate route for same destination. For eg. I want to...


What you're looking for is called "Via Points" as your friend correctly suggested. From the Garmin Nuvi 750 web based information:

nüvi 750 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 750's wide screen. In addition, nüvi 750 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls.

"Alternate routes" are those routes that are created when the nuvi is used with a traffic receiver (FM or MSDN). This allows for a new route to be created with the traffic data so that routes suffering congestion, etc. are avoided. Some people also refer to the routes created when a turn is missed (the GPS indicates "Recalculating") as an "alternate route" but it is not.

Good luck!

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada


Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.
