MainMenu - WhereTo - Address - Spell City - Enter word Pet

Unit will return with Petaling Jaya, SEL

PJ is a big town. If you need to go to PJ say from Seremban, just key in any address which will get you within the vicinity for you to search a particular destination you are looking for in your Nuvi ...

the way you are using it is not right.

PJ is a "city" in Garmin/MFM for address search

"Near" is used mainly for POI's. So you wont fun Petaling Jaya in near because there is no Point Of Interest called Petaling Jaya.

:welcome:
The manual is a general one for all nuvi 2x5 series. Not all items inside are applicable to your nuvi. Please read the manual again, it's wirtten somewhere.

Dont be so hasty to go down the path of reformating or other actions.

I suggest and confirmed by the Garmin website, that your 205 DO NOT have the bluetooth feature.

The manual may say describe such feature, as a general information because the manual I believe is common for the 200 series Nuvi distributed worldwide. Features are also released based on markets. But it does not mean yours will have all the features mentioned in the manual.

If you read the manual correctly, on page 14 it does say:

"Bluetooth wireless technology is available on the nuvi 214, 215W, 265, 265W 275 and 285W"

The manual mentions FM Traffic feature but you can bet you dont have it.

Enjoy the device and get used to it first before attempting to do anything to it

Cheers and welcome
