Sending to Google maps

 

I am trying to send a map location to my Garmin.Communicator is working. Google will not give me a choice to send a map location anywhere except via email.

Is this a problem that Google has with Macs?

Thanks

Re: Sending To Google Maps...

Hi walteredgarpalmer,

In order for the “Send to GPS” function to work, your 205 must be connected to, and mounted on your computer.

HTH (hope that helps)

Google Glich

I think it is a glitch with Google. I have had it happen, but if I then enter the address and hit enter again I am able to get the option to send to GPS. Incidently, I use a PC, so I am pretty sure it isn't a Mac problem.
