    I can't get the address to go in.If I change city to near it should be
    Millville NJ I'm from Montvale Nj. When I put Millville in it gives me
    many states with Millville.I pick Millville NJ and it gives me places
    (lodging) for areas in upstate NY for me? Not even close as Millvile is
    across from Philadelphia PA near the nj shore and the places they are
    giving me are up on the Deleware River in NY state?????????????????????
    Heres where I'm trying to go

    I have a Nuvi 760 so the fact that it works fine for me probably isn't
    of much help to you.

    On mine, I selected Where To, then I entered the State, then the City,
    then the street number, then the street, done! It sounds like your GUI
    is very different.

    When I put the address into google maps on my laptop, I get a Best Western,
    and the location in South Jersey seems right. Either your map data are way
    off, or you need to be more careful inputting the data, sems to me those
    are the only options. Looks like an old town to me.

    I also have a 350, and it has the 2007 maps. (I never updated them since I
    bought it 3 years ago.) I have no trouble at all entering 1) New Jersey, 2)
    Millville, 3) 1701, 4) 2

    ?

    Millville comes right up; in fact it self-completes after I type in M I L L

    Hey, whatever I can do to help. :)

    When you first tried plugging in the address, you pressed Address, and it
    brings up a choice of either New Jersey (where you live), or "Choose Another
    State" (or something like that -- the thing's in the car). If you clicked on
    the New Jersey, it then asks for what city. Did you have a problem after
    that?

    Up until this morning,every time I put in Millville and chose NJ I would
    go to lodging and instead of getting Millville hotels in NJ I was given
    hotels in Brryville NY Deerpark NY.I know these areas and they are in
    the wrong state and in the wrong direction (north of me Millville is 3
    hours south).I don't know why this morning it finally gave me Millville
    NJ??? Thanks for the help guys.

    Does the 350 really require you to start by entering the city? It
    seems more intuitive to start with the state, then the city, etc.

    chair and keyboard)

    When you are putting in a different city from the near you put in
    city,then it gives you all the states with that city.I chose Millville
    NJ but kept getting hotels in NY when I would choose lodging.Had nothing
    to do with the keyboard or me mis typing.

    When entering an address ALWAYS enter State, City, Street, number in
    that order. If you enter the street and have the incorrect state or city
    the streets for the location you want may not be available.

    That's what I thought too, but it didn't sound right to this old Dutchman,
    hence PibCak

    One clarification, on my 760 the order of the last two elements is
    reversed:
    State
    City
    Street number
    Street name

    That explains it, I guess. I never use the Near You feature and I
    probably never will, especially now. I always start with Where To.

    i tried getting it to take the address numerous ways without success.So
    II figured if I could get to the city in the state I could put in
    lodging and the hotel would come up. Each time I would hit near then a
    different city Then the city (millville)Then I had a choice of 35
    Nillville"s Chose Millvile NJ and then lodging. Each time till this
    morning I would get NY hotels.Had nothing to do with keyboard or
    choices.Then this morning going step by step for Howard to help it
    finaly gave me NJ.Of course just now doing it to make sure I put it in
    right order guess what GOT NY AGAIN??????Will contact Garmin
    tomorrow,probably have to send it in for repairs? Probably not going to
    be worth it.
