How to Delete a Location on a Garmin GPS

As you log miles and years onto your Garmin GPS device, you'll find your list of saved locations continually growing. Also known as Favorites or My Locations, your saved locations can be accessed to quickly plot a course to your favorite destinations. If your list of favorite locations has become too densely populated or there are locations you no longer visit, you can delete your saved locations. You can also clear your list of recently visited locations.
