Have you turned the GPS to simulation mode by closing the antenna?

Hey Thexder, u still surfing in CH forum? :D There isn't much difference between your 610 and my 660 except for the TTS. Actually, u can skip step 1 (simulation mode "on") but just leave you GPS mode off. If you follow closely the steps I prescribed, you should be able to see the "Set Loc".

I tried in Simulatoin mode and with the antenna down (GPS off). Still doesn't seem to work. Don't know if the upgrading of firmware affected this function? I upgraded to the Ver 4.0 recently.

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..
It only shows the coordinates if the location is manually added to favourites but if lets say we use spell name to search for a place i.e. queensbay mall which is incorporated into the map, nuvi 3xx will show :

QUEENSBAY MALL
GO!
BAYAN BAY, PENANG
ISLAND

There is no coordinate shown and there is no way to set location when selecting show map. The only way is to let it simulate till it reaches the destination and go to >Where to?>Coordinates

Don't need to simulate all the way to the actual location. Just "show map", then "set loc" and you're there.

Mayb ur nuvi 2xx has the set location option but not on the nuvi 3xx. When selecting show map, there is only the "Back", "+" and "-" buttons

I have tried a simple way to determine PoI co-ordinate on nuvi610 [firmware ver 3.9] without setting to SIMULATION mode

[Where to?] > [Browse Map] :touch screen to mark the PoI > [Set Loc.] > [Back] > [Coordinate]

done! as simple as that.

Thanks for the steps. Touching the screen to manually mark the location do work in a way but what if u let's say u r currently at home and u r trying to locate a location, say "sunway carnival mall", u go to [Where to?] > [Spell Name] > key in "sunway carnival" and the list appears........now, what is the simplest method to get the exact coordinate of "sunway carnival mall" without simulating?

OK... continue with these steps:
"touch" the Sunway Carnival Mall from the list,
"touch" Show Map
when the next screen appears..
"touch" Set Loc.
then "touch" Back a few times till u see Coordinate icon
"touch" the Coordinate icon...
it reads N5 23.925 E100 23.875

Good luck...

Alternatively, you can still follow my previous steps by panning and zooming the map, once you'd found the PoI, "touch" to mark and then [Set Loc.] > [Back] > [Coordinate]
