    I'm new at using a GPS. This is a NUVI 57.

    In a big part of Southeast Wisconsin we have addresses like "W142 N8101 Merrimac Dr. Menomonee Falls, WI" How do you enter the W142 N8101 part? I cant get it accept this form of address.

    I believe these are State Plane coordinates, but that is probably not relevant. The above is the address of the Menomonee Falls Highschool

    As far as I know Your Nuvi57will only accept Latitude and Longitude, for example Menomonee Falls High school would be :-

    Degrees
    N43.164771 W88.088733

    Your State Plane coordinates would have to be converted into Latitude and Longitude before the Nuvi will accept them, there is an on-line converter here that converts from State Plane to Latitude and Longitude :-

    I don't think there are enough numbers in your State Plane coordinates, see the example here :-
