New here.  I've had this GPS approximately two weeks.  I was having fits with navigating using cities from where I live (Colorado City, CO) and where I work (Pueblo, CO).  I would be at work and the GPS would show Colo City 2.46mi to the north. (Colorado City, CO is located 25mi South of Pueblo)    I cleared memory and initialized 3 or 4 times.  Finally, after talking with support personal @ Magelan it was explained to me that the Base Map showed Colo City N of Pueblo, she used her software with the log. lat. numbers at my position to confirm this.  Megelan support E-Mailed me back informing me that they would send the coordinates I gave them to their engineers.  Has anyone else ever heard of this type problem before.    dkhughes

I must admit that this is the first I have heard of this. Based on the response from Magellan Support it would appear to be news to them as well.

It was mentioned to me that they use city hall, libraries, to mark positions.  No city hall here, I guess ours would be in Pueblo, this could be it.
