Just got off the phone with Garmin about update (9) and asked them if it showed specific streets in The Villages of Hadley. It did not so the Tech asked me to go to their web site Garmin.com and fill out a map error report. This assists the cartographer in updating the area just in case the planning council failed to do so. At least that's what Garmin told me.

Best Buy is selling the 760 for $349, they are also selling the 200 for $169. Circuit City is $359 for the 760 and $169 for the 200, online they also have a refurbished 200 for $129 and the 200W is $199. Biggest diff is no bluetooth or street names and sreen is not 4.3. I have the 200 and love it. I don't need bluetooth and street name to turn on is at the top of the screen if you're not sure where to turn though 99% of time when she says turn in 100 feet there's only one street to choose from. As far as screen the bigger screen is wider not taller which doesn't really give any more visibilty to where you are going. Just my 2 cents...GN.

The new 2009 Update for maps to Nuvi now connected Morris, Canal Street to 466A which 2008 maps didn't have. I check several of the new street that had open houses and they still weren't added.

OK, I have the Nuvi 260 and when I go to put in The Villages, it doesn't come up and I have the latest (09) update. Just received it. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?

Try Lady Lake . I know when i was using it to find Garage Sale addresses it worked if I used Lady Lake for all parts of the Villages.

Has anyone else noticed that "the voice" seems to have even MORE of an attitude since the 09 update? "ReCalCulating...." :P She seems so disgusted whenever I miss a turn LOL

On the other hand, did you see the cool vehicles you can download from the Garmin website? I nabbed the rocket, the rocket car, the roadtrip car and the Christmas car. :2cool: I am a little surprised that they don't have a golf cart car.

I do not have the latest update but I have noticed that "the voice" has picked up a British accent. She does seem completely disgusted with me when I do not follow her instructions.

By the way Chelsea does the latest update have the streets in Amelia , specifically Halyard Court. I do not want to pay for an update until it does. Thanks

It would be even nicer if they had the golf cart trails and the option to follow them instead of roads.

Judy, you always make me laugh! Yes, the voice has even more of an attitude! I thought I was going crazy. You should have heard Barefoot one day in my car arguing with my GPS that I call Ruby! It was hysterical! Wait until she hears this one! LOL 1rnfl 1rnfl

This is good to know! I'm glad to hear that you also think she has more of an attitude! I thought it was just me, and it was all in my head. I'm also glad to know that somebody else argues with the voice! :realmad:

Mom,

We're in the same boat. Your street & ours is not shown on the latest version. I will wait until version 10 and only then will purchase it if Hadley is listed. When I called Garmin the tech said that if it shows on Mapquest they'll probably have it. Mapquest not yet. By the time they update it I may already have learned how to find the house. Keyword :dontknow: "MAY".
