    yes, that's what I read in one of your earlier posts but when I try that.. .it just starts from where my truck is now. I'll keep at it. It does put a little green house where I tell it to "set origin". Then when I go back to *destination* put in that address, it figures the route from where I'm at now.

    E-mail me your from\to locations....

    When you hit the Set Origin button, does the screen go back to the map screen? If it does, does a little white box appear on the bottom right saying "return to gps location"?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    when I find first location (could be anywhere) and hit *set origin* it does go back to the map and the box with the "go back to gps location" does come on but only for a brief second then disappears and I have to hit "back" upper left corner to go to menu and put in 2nd location, hit "begin route" and it routes from where I am now.

    The "go back to gps location" button should stay on. So long as you are in a set origin, the button will be there. You are doing the procedures correctly, now we need to find out why your TND is not acting correctly.

    Try to push the reset button on the back of the TND while it is on... it will turn the TND off and then power the TND back on. Try to do a set origin again and let me know what happens.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    There's a Pilot on I-24 in the southern edge of KY that it won't route to. It does the same thing with the weight restriction between the highway and the ts entrance. There's a J at the next exit, I think it's hwy 117. It routes you to that exit then back on a gravel farm road to the previous exit the Pilot is on.
     
    Mark Kling Thanks this.
