RV 760 gps problem?

When doing a search for RV parks I keep getting this message.

"Remove some amenities from the search, and try again"

Problem is I don't have any selected. Why is this happening and how do I correct it? Does it just mean there are no cg near where I am searching?

OK, I found what I was doing wrong, and it is my fault. I was trying to find rv parks (CG) near Roanoke Va. The problem was I didn't change the "search near" city to Roanoke, it was still set to my house. This is located at the top right of the page. Once I changed that and then did a search I came up with a mess of cg to chose from with the things I wanted such as being pet friendly.


The more I LEARN to use this thing the more I like it. It is just a matter of ME learning what to do.


Now I need to learn how to find parking places such as rest stops.

AMEN to getting a kid to help!

I've been learning different functions by following this guy's youtube productions.



He has helped me with some of my Garmin 760 GPS usage issues!

Cheers!

Thank you. That was interesting. Looks to have the same commands as my unit has. I can see where the commands could come in handy on occasion.

Here's another about using the trip planner in the Garmin 760.



Just search for gpscity in youtube and find all his Garmin 760 tutorials on his youtube channel.

Happy travels!
