How to Delete a Location on a Garmin GPS
Use Garmin to store and manage a list of your favourite locations. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

With a Garmin GPS device, you'll never have to worry about finding a new restaurant, mall or cinema to enjoy. Garmin devices are loaded with points of interest, and when you are driving, you can enter a specific address for directions to your destination. When you find a location you want to visit again, you can add it to your "Favorites" list. If you no longer want to store a certain address, you can delete it from the favourites list through the "Where To?" menu. You can also delete addresses from the "Recently Found" list.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Power on your Garmin GPS. After the device starts, tap "Where To?"

  2. 2

    Tap "Favorites" if you want to delete an address you previously added to your favourites list. Tap a category.

  3. 3

    Tap the address you want to delete, then tap "Delete" and "Yes."

  4. 4

    Tap "Where To?" and "Recently Found" if you want to remove every address on this list. The list stores the last 50 locations you found with the Garmin.

  5. 5

    Tap "Clear" and then tap "Yes" to delete the entire "Recently Found" list.

Tips and warnings

  • If you have an address stored in both the "Recently Found" and "Favorites" lists, you must delete it in both locations to remove it completely.
