Editing address on Nuvi 660

 

Is there a way to edit the displayed address? My unit will allow me to change the name, symbol, or phone #, but not the address. Any help appreciated, and thanks

Why would you would want to

Why would you would want to edit the address? Is it a question of the Longitude/Latitude being at a corner house with an address on one street whereas the real post office address is on the other street?

Compulsion only

I am trying to put together a set of delivery locations to use fleet-wide, and I want the driver to know the street address as well as contact person and tel # of all our stops. If I enter long/lat and go to, I cannot edit the street address at a later time. I have since tried Excel, and have started to update that data base, but was hoping to try something a little easier (why wouldn't Garmin allow me this leisure, as I can only change name and tel #)
Thanks
Dan

"Compulsion only"

Dan,

I'm very, very new to all of this, but over the past few days I've learned (I followed the instructions given by others on this site) how to create a custom POI file. If all of your delivery locations are known, and you can find them using a program such as DeLorme's "Street Atlas", you can create your own custom poi file. Each delivery location can have several lines of information. The data you require should fit easily. Street Atlas can be configured to display locations in "decimal degrees", which is required for a .csv file. Once you've created your own custom poi file, it's easy to add or delete locations, and keep your gps/s updated.

For more info, go to:

Have fun,

Miki

It's really not difficult to do...

If your company's contact program can output a CSV file of the Client's name, address, Phone number, and contact person, that can easily be manipulated in Excel to do a batch geocode and create a CSV file suitable for POIs. The reference information in the help files available above on the 'faq&help' link contains everything you'd need to know.
