Searching for Your Destination
The main purpose of your Magellan is to get you to where you want to go. You can find a destination by searching for by address, category or near your location. If you do have an address for the business, it would be best to go ahead and just type it in.
The key reason for this is that many Magellan’s do not have the latest maps or points of interest databases. If you bought an older version and chose not to purchase the latest map list, your business may not be listed in the database. Magellan will search for it, but more than likely won’t find it. And, sometimes it takes Magellan a few minutes to scan its database, especially if there are businesses with similar names. So, save yourself some time, and just input the address.
If you will be searching for businesses on the fly, suck it up, and purchase the latest update for the points of interest database and GPS maps, especially if you are planning on traveling a lot. You will be able to easily find new businesses, restaurants and gas stations. And, while you are updating your device, go ahead and update the firmware for your model as well.
