Nuvi 1300 (set location feature)


My friend just purchased a 1300. My 200W will allow me to set a specific location in another state, etc. Does the 1300 have a set location feature? If so where would it be found on the unit.

I have a 1250 but it should be the same procedure.

As first you have to turn GPS simulator on. Go Tools/Settings/System/GPS Simulator/check On/OK.
After this go Where To?/Address/Change State/Enter the address. When you are done, you will have option to set this new address as your location.

My 200w with the simulator

My 200w with the simulator on allows me to just touch the map screen where I want to be and press SET LOC and my on screen vehicle shows up there. I like using this feature to locate Hotels, Restaurants, etc. in any town of interest.
