Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) Have you checked the Map Info screen - in the device? If so, can you tell me EXACTLY what you see on that screen?

2) WHERE is the address you are trying to enter - relative to your current location?

3) WHERE is your current location (city & state is fine), and do you see DETAILED maps of your current location - when you go directly to the View Map screen?

Thanks

I entered this site from a link that offered to help for a "Fully refundable charge of $5". When I got to the site, I was told that I would be charged $29 or $34 so I left the site. I never received an answer to address my problem, and I don't want one. Please ensure that I am not charged for this attempt as I will have to refute the charge if one appears.
