    Subject: How do I turn it on
    Date: 24.06.2022 05:29:01Name: Leslie DeBord
    I've been happily using a Garnin Nuvi GPS for about 10 years but it won't load new maps. So i asked for a new Garmin as a gift and got a refurbished Drive 51 Lower 49 LM with no manual or instruction at all. It's doesn't work like my other one. I assumed a newer model would be better but it took my ages to figure out how the even charge it at home and I figured out how to turn it on but that's it. How do I bring up screen to enter addresses etc
