+Goofy Gran Posted January 6, 2012 Share Posted January 6, 2012 Can anyone please help me? I have just been introduced to geo-caching in South Africa and, being of adventurous spirit, could not wait to get back to the UK to get out there in search of geo-caches! I have a Garmin Nuvi 1490 GPS, but, no matter what settings I try, I simply cannot get it to do the basic navigation with directions and instructions. I have set the coordinates, changed to pedestrian, etc, but it only shows the 'destination' with no arrow of direction, distance to cache or direction except something like' turn left in High Street' in text. Am I missing something? Someone said I might need to download extra software?? Although I am a 58-year old Granny, I LIVE for hiking and adventure. I took my granddaughter this morning and we found the geocache, but only because I had a good look via Google satellite where it might be. Please, will someone be so kind to advise? Thanks soooo much!! Skutsje Quote Link to comment
