    Unhappy How to "Go To" toilet?

    I have a Garmin Nuvi, maybe i missed something in my baby training but I cant get it to "Go To" a toilet. Petrol, ATMs, food even churches no problem but if I'm busting I'm on my own.
    Is it me or have others found this?
    Toilets show up on the screen if you are zoomed in enough but I can't find how to search for them then get nav instructions, any suggestions.
    PS, I'm currently at home and so not in need for an urgent reply

    Hi. Try Where To?>Points of Interest>Spell Name>P u b l i c>Done.
    There should be a selectable list of closest relief.
    ... Teach a man (or woman) to fish and he (or she) eats for a lifetime.

    Hee hee, I tried similar but 'toilet' - with no joy, I guess the spell has to begin from the start of the 'name'.
    I'll be giving this a go before I need it, ta

  4. Garmin being american you won't find 'toilet' , will need to find something like 'rest rooms, or 'public conveniences'

    Sounds like your menus are slighly different to the Nuvi.
    A few days ago I was again "caught out" but had success with the official garmin map, the OSM map, while the toilets show up if you are zoomed in at the appropriate spot, don't seem to come up from the POIs during a search.
    Now if I can finally sort out my twonav I can see how it 'goes'.

    OSM - finding a toilet hear here -
    CN works pretty well here in NZ on my nuvi 1250 > Where To? > POI > "Public" or "Toilet"
    A quick test just now from home using Garmin CN Aus & NZ NT 2013.20
