Don't jump to conclusions! The Garmin Streetpilot works best when you are moving and you have it set for a destination. Put it in the car and take a trip before you decide it is NG.

A nice feature is you can turn the volume down if you don't want to listen to Ms Garmin! BTW, my sister and BIL liked mine so much they bought one. First thing they did was try it out in the driveway! Next, they called me distressed that the (blankety) thing wouldn't work. You know the rest.... Hope you enjoy yours.

A Garman C330!!

Fired it up and (we haven't yet but WILL name the yappy $#&) she can't figure out my home addy even with my postal code!!! (which is fairly exact compared to where SHE is trying to tell me I live )
She is trying to tell me I live waaaay down the other (south) end of my street.
FOUR, count'em 4 MILES away from here!!!!-quote

Doug - That is really puzzling to me - because three family members have been all over with Gertie Garmin!! I think it is an singular thing - try out other addresses before you give up. The only slightly oddball thing I found is that it almost invariably wants to make right hand turns so will circle the block right when I think I should be in the left hand turn lane.

Other than that = flawless!! However, my veterinarian daughter has found that on farm roads it wants to turn at the "pin" of the address which is not always where the driveway is.

Good luck
