One of the most handy features of the Garmin Nuvi (and other) GPS systems is the ability to save your current location, so that the next time you have to go there, it’s already saved in your GPS. However, with the more recent versions of Nuvis, it’s not at all obvious how to do it. So, here is how to save your current location on the current versions of Nuvi GPS units.
It all starts with the map, so you need to have your Nuvi on the map display screen.
See the little vehicle on the map screen? You probably already know that it is displaying where you are at the moment (i.e., your current location).
So the question is, how to get your Nuvi GPS to save that location in the ‘Saved’ area.
Tap on the vehicle icon, and it will pop up all sorts of information:
As you can see, at the very top, next to the coordinates of your current location, is a button that says “Save”.
Tap on “Save” and it will bring up the keyboard, so that you can enter the name that you want to call the saved place.
When you are done entering the name for the current location, tap “Done”.
Your current location is now saved, and will show up in your Saved places section of your Nuvi GPS.
And that’s all there is to it! Let us know if this was helpful!
