    I would like to know where there is a place in Phoenix to get the Navigon 2100 max servicedl.
    I bought it from Radio Shack, and they have not been helpful at all.

    I haven't received a solution, other than to take unit to a dealer or service center, and we need to know where the service center is located. or do I have to send the unit somewhere out of town.

It sems that the firmware of the device is corrupted, for some reason. The solution lies in reinstalling it. Please visit the service center of the brand and get it done from the.

    My eprerience says that you try Best Buy or even Fry's should be helpful. Even if you did not buy from them, they will find a solution for the problem.

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:

Can't type in an address. After typing first 2 letters it goes to different roads and won't allow me to type in the correct one.


I would first check what city or town your looking in....

go to Where To..... Address....on the addres screen does it say Select City in ( city the address is in ) ?

If not on bottom of screen it will have change State / Province


If you want you can send me the address or street name and i will check to see if the same happens here....

sometimes if you enter 123 N West St you will need to put 123 North West St or 123 St Anne would be

123 Saint Anne

It guesses the street and i can't put in the correct one


The unit does not "guess" streets. It suggests possibilites based on the location in its database. If it is pulling up incorrect information, the city may be wrong. Try re-entering the address without entering the city. Instead, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address will be listed as being in a different/nearby town due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

My garmin nuvi 200 gives me a different street name before I can type in the correct one...


If the unit is suggesting a different street name, try re-entering the address. When you get to the city, hit, "Search All." Then enter the address as normal. It is possible the address is listed as being in a different city, due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

I put in address of AVE and it took me to street??? It came up with ST or Ave....I didn't know how to answer to the AVE?? HELP


When you are entering the address, do NOT enter the city name. Instead, press "Search All". Then enter the address, and see if it gives you Avenue. More than likely, the address you are looking for is listed in the unit as being in a different/nearby city (likely due to the ZIP code). See if this helps.

I was in Tyler Tx. and could not pull up an address. A couple of days earlier I had a message show up that said something about I needed to update. Not sure what that means or how to go about it. ...


How long has it been since you've updated the maps on the unit? You may have gotten a message stating your maps were over a year old, and recommending you update them. The address in Tyler may have been too new for the unit if the maps have not been updated recently also. If this is not the case, you should be aware that some addresses may show as being in a different city due to ZIP code status. For instance, you may know an address to be in a certain town/city, but it may show as being in a neighboring town in the unit as they share a ZIP code. If you cannot find an address in your GPS, go back to the beginning and re-enter the address. When it comes to the city, however, try, "Search All". See if this helps.

I enter the address and city and it shows a default address not what i want.


If the unit is showing you a different address than what you are looking for, it is possible it does not recognize the address you entered as being in the city you entered. Sometimes the address in the unit is listed as being in a different/nearby city (due to a ZIP code classification, for example). Go back to the main screen and try entering the address again. Instead of selecting the city, try "Search All". Then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

Sometimes when this occurs it is due to the unit having the address listed differently then you might think it is. It is usually listed according to postal regulations, meaning it may BE in one town, but LISTED as another town. If the unit cannot find the address as entered, press the back button until you get to city. Press SEARCH ALL and try your address again. This may help. Let me know what it says when you do this.

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need


If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

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.
