    I haven't had a hand held in a long time. I just purchased a garmin 64st. I'd like to also use this for auto's. I can't find where I enter a start and end destination as far as addresses go. Do I need to buy an additional map?

    Thanks.

    Page 2 of your user manual shows you how to create a route

    The unit won't have a 'Satnav style' trip menu, you can also plan a trip using Garmin Basecamp software on a computer, this will create a downloadable Route that can be loaded onto the unit

    You won't need to install any other maps as long as the unit already has maps that show useable roads

    I was under the impression if I got the garmin city navigator I'd have the option to search waypoints by address.

    It looks like route generation on the 64st is done by selecting existing waypoints, the waypoints can be generated in several different ways, e.g. physically pointing at it on the map, if you want to search by address, you may get more options by purchasing City Navigator, but it may also be possible to use the Find >> Address option with your currently loaded map, it certainly works with OSM routable maps, I would give Find >> Address a try with your existing map first as you may have what you want already

    In my opinion, it is much easier to generate the Route on a computer running Garmin Basecamp
