    For whatever reason, for one of my favorite addresses , my Nuvi 350
    wants to take me through a street that dead ends against a train track. I
    think ages ago, the street used to cross the train tracks, but no more....

    Can I modify the route (like adding a detour) permanently and save it that
    way?

    Thanks,
    mac

    No, the maps can't be edited, and there's no way to tell the Nuvi to avoid
    it. You didn't say which version map you're using but City Navagator North
    America 2008 is the latest.

    If not already fixed, you can submit map errors to Navteq here:

    Yes I am using the latest update....

    Can I create a two - section route and "paste" them together from A to B the
    from B to C?

    Sort of. The Nuvi allows one "via" in your current destination. You would
    first select Go to B and then Go to A. When you select Go to A it will ask
    you if you want it to be your new destination or a via. Select via. You
    will then be routed from current position to A and then to B.

    You can only have one via per destination.

    You cannot edit or change the mapping data, and the nuvi does not do
    routes, it will only go to a favorite and let you add one stop en route
    to a favorite.

    So I you may be able to correct this by having another favorite that is
    in a location near the favorite address. The second favorite would have
    to be located in a direction, relative to the favorite, that resulted in
    travel from there to the favorite not involving the dead end street.

    Then you could activate a route to the favorite address, then add the
    second diversionary address to the route, and it would not use the dead
    end street.

    Or you could just remember to go around the block or whatever to get
    around the dead end street when going to your favorite address.

    Bruce,

    I know how to inser a via destination to a route. But how can I save the
    entire route with the via inserted?

    You cannot do that. The nuvi will only save favorites and those only
    represent a single location.

    You can't. As I said, the Nuvi 2x0, 3x0, and 6x0 don't do routes.
