How to Save Addresses to My Locations on a Garmin GPS

Reentering a frequently visited location on your Garmin GPS can be a hassle, which is why Garmin features My Locations (known as Favorites on some models). By saving destinations in My Locations, you can quickly access a frequently used location without having to enter the street address all over again. Adding a new location can be done in two ways: adding the street address as a new location, or adding your current position as one.
