Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) WHERE was the device last used SUCCESSFULLY (city & state is fine)?

2) When you say "current locations are accurate", what are those current locations?

3) WHERE are you currently located (city is fine), and when you view the Map screen (without searching for a destination), do the DETAILED maps for your area display - and show the street or road where you are located?

Please use the REPLY box below.

Thanks

1. Nowhere it has not worked the maps since I bought it. 2. I live in Ontario and it knows where I am shows current street directions. 3. I think I already answered some of this question. But when I try to find an address in Mississauga I cannot even get to spell it out, it not available.
Customer: replied 21 days ago.
No.
I am not paying anything to fix a new GPS. I will take it back first.
Expert:  Greg A. replied 21 days ago.

OK - can you TRY to search for a CITY CENTER - instead of an address and see if that works?

For example, touch the City Center button (you may have to scroll down to see that button), and then start typing in Mississauga, and see how far you can get before the "smart search" kicks in - to show you a list.

Please let me now what happens when you try that.

Thanks
