Garmin search / how to??

After a hundred years with the Garmin 276 and 376 I have switched to a GPSmap 640 and change is hard. I'm told the 640 has the interface that the Nuvi has

I know how to find POI's if it is in the area I am in. But if I am in Des Moines and I want to find a hotel in KC. How do I do that?

My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

Re: Garmin search / how to??

Man after making a switch after so many years with one model, I feel like an idiot.

Answer question above ... at home screen hit "where to" then at the bottom of the page touch "near" then "a different city" then type in the city name.

On the 376 you moved the cursor over a location and hit find. Must have been to easy that way. I'd take the old unit any day.
