I called Garmin later that day and get to talk to a different person and she knew right a way. The solution is what you are telleing me. :)
I needed to switch my routing to Direct routing and that fixed it. I am glad I didn’t return my unit, it is great.
Thank you for your help!

Marian

I think what is happening is that you are in automotive mode and it’s trying to route you but you don’t have routable maps. Try changing your profile to geocaching and see if that helps. Good luck!

Have a look at this video to see how it’s done:

Thank you for your review. I have a question. I own 62s and I bought it for Geocaching. Can I do geocaching without buyng more maps? I am getting an error message: “Route calculation error. Maps do not have routable roads in this area.”
But I really don’t need a map. All I want to see is an arrow pointing in a direction with a distance to the coordiantes. I don’t care for roads. I called Garmin and they said I must purchase detailed maps. But I don’t need maps for navigating. I just want to be navihar=ted to coordinates without a map. Do you think you can help me?
I am so close to return this unit.
Thank you,

Marian

I just bought one for geocaching, and really appreciate the perspective that you wrote the review from. Very helpful for the basics of using it… And it’s my first GPS so that’s a good thing for me especially.
