    Default Garmin nuvi 55 lm help

    just bought this satnav £79.99 never really tried it until today as ive only had it a week . but today tried to put my post code in from were i was traveling from to get home . but it never found my door number were i live . so i tried the post code from across the street and that found it . so i checked [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] . and royalmail have got it down. as the right one was just checking to make sure. and it does not give you many options to find an address if you are looking for some were . as ive tried others before when you type post code in it gives you a few options of door numbers and addresses . but this one i have seems to only give you 1 opition .. instead of scrolling down a list to find the right one

    Might be you haven't read the instructions properly something gives me the impression you have a problem reading instructions.

    I have a similar problem with my new Garmin nuvi 55. Quite often you just want to get to the centre of a town without knowing any street names. On my old Navman you could just enter "Go to centre of town", but the Garmin seems to insist on a street name. I can't find a way round this - there's nothing in the manual. Any suggestions?
