Garmin Quest Ii Routing Problem. Help Needed!

Recommended Posts

I'm in need for some help on the route searching for the Quest II unit. Got to check out my new GPSr this weekend and I am pretty disappointed with it.

 

Does anyone know how to search a place without using street address?

 

For example. I live in LA. I was trying to search the best route goitng to the Grove (a shopping area/theatre complex). However, every search options are for "Find near me" and I'm nowhere near The Grove; or I would have to punch in the street address for search, which I don't have. Anyone knows how to get around this problem???

 

I got to say... the interface design is just poor...

A couple of things play here.

 

I'm going to the Grove on Tuesday myself for a meeting at work. The email inviteing me to the meeting had the address in it so I just used the Find/Addresses and typed in the address...done.

 

The Grove itself could be a Points of Intrest (POI), but it's not. You would think it would be but it's not.

 

If it was a POI you could go to the map page on the Quest2,,,move your arrow to Anaheim, then do a find from there.

 

I'll save you alot of time. The address is: 2200 E Katella Ave Anaheim, CA 92806

N33.80369 W117.88596

 

There are 6 million POI's in the Quest2, unfortunately The Grove is not one of them. I you don't know the address you could look it up on Goggle or view it in Goggle Earth.

 

It a nice GPSr, I hope you will enjoy it.

I was actually talking about the grove on 3rd and fairfax. But either way, even if I check out POI, I was only abe to find POI that is near me (Find Near Me). If I was in LA and wanted to go to, let's say... disneyland or seaworld, it doesn't help me while I'm driving. it is weird taht you can't search places beyond your immedicate location except to punch in the actualy address

Like I said.....move your arrow to the area that you want to look for a POI in and press find/theaters etc. I'm not in Kansas, but I could within seconds find the resturants in Kansas City. When you move the arrow to the area you want to search and do the find you are seaching in that area. I just found the Songa BBQ in San Antonia, Texas in about 8 seconds. I'm in Los Angles. I could hit the route button and it would route me right to it. Try it. Of course while you are driving, things like that are hard to do. I'd just pull into the nearest 711 or something and do that.

ok... so you need to zone out to the map, point the cursor to wheree you think the target is.... then do a find near? wow ok.... my GPSr is fairly slow on searcing. I don't know how you can achieve that type of results in such a short period of time...
