Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

We are a 100% slk forum but you are more than welcome to hang with us

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Hi @Rudie, welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

We're really an SLK dedicated forum, and there are other forums that have sections for other models of Mercedes, but you're welcome to hang here with us if you'd like to...

I don't know about the Becker sat nav, as my R171 SLK doesn't have it. However, do you have the country set correctly for it to find Gijon? Your profile seems to suggest you're in the UK, but isn't Gijon somewhere else in Europe? If so, I know that with some other sat navs I've used, you have to set the country correctly first, if you're searching for somewhere that's away from your default (and then change it back when returning to the UK).

Also, if you want to receive emails about responses to questions you post, make sure you have notifications setup correctly in your profile/control panel (”User CP" at the top of any forum page).

Welcome to the forums Rudie. As dbgrn says, the Becker is clever in that it will only allow you to choose the next character on a search if the place exists in the database for the locale you are searching in. The letters that do not fit with the places in the database for the region you are searching in will be greyed out and unselectable if the place or road is not in the database. Unlike a TomTom that will let you mis-spell a place name, the Becker won't.

Like Pres said, if it is not in the databes, you cannot select the letters . Gijon appears to be close to Barcelona, Spain. Also not available on my Becker device, although Barcelona does. - I just tried - You should try another suburb of the town.
