Viewing Coordinates Of "Favourite" On Nuvi 600 series

#1 Post by Redstorm » Sat Aug 11, 2007 2:17 pm

Someone in the old forum posed a question of whether it is possible to find out the coordinates of those locations saved in the "Favourite" in Nuvi GPSr. A member suggested a method of doing so which I tried and found unsuccessful. I found another way to do so and posted in the old forum. Now, I am re-posting the same method for the benefit of others here.

1. At "Home" page, > "Where To" > "Spell Name.

Image

2. Select > "Spell Name" and enter the name of one of your favourites e.g. Sunset Grill

Image

3. Next > "Done" > "Show Map" and at the map, click on > "Set Loc"

Image

4. Back out all the way to "Home" page, then > "Where To", > "Coordinates"

Image

5. At "Coordinate", click on it to view it.

Image

6. To confirm on the location of the coordinates, > "Show Map" which will bring you to the location again.

In the old forum, I posted a way that can be used on the Nuvi2xx. The first 3 steps are same as yours. Then, after backing out all the way to homepage, select view map. Use finger to click on your vehicle icon and the coordinates will be shown.

I tried your methods on my 660 and it didn't work at all. That's why I posted my own steps to view the coordinates.

Looks like the software of the 2xx and 3xx/6xx are a bit different...

Well, I am not surprised at all. Hardware always get better and better albeit with improved features and changes.

I don't own a Streetpilot series GPSr, so I don't know if it works with your set. Mine is a Nuvi 660 and it should work with the 6xx series set. Why don't u try it out and let us know. Even if it doesn't, u can try exploring to see if there is another way to do so. That's how my methods came about when "jumbocrap" suggested his way of doing so on his 200 but his method didn't work on my set.

Sorry.. but is the Nuvi 6xx different from the 3xx ?

Mine is 310.
I just go to Favourites, Tap on the saved location, and it will show the Name + Coordinates, with the big "GO" button..

For my Nuvi 610 when I go to 'Show Map', there is no 'Set Loc' button :ko:
