This link will let you download ALL the manuals for this Garmin unit, not just the quick start:

I didn't convert it to a Tiny URL, so make sure the whole link shows in your browser.

I would certainly appreciate a FixYa rating from those of you looking for the library, should you deem it appropriate. Thanks!

SOURCE: Nuvi 200w map download and sd card

Just completed 1 hr 15 min call w/ Garmin support (first 45 mins on hold)...

- Install WebUpdater This will update the garmin's firmware.
- Restart the garmin to complete the install of FW
- Make sure that you have room on your garmin to accept the webupdater and new map... delete unused help, voice and vehicle files. I now only have American English on my Garmin, but if I pick up a new language I can go to webupdater and reinstall those languages I dropped
- Restart the map update. I'm in the middle of it now, but so far so good

SOURCE: No Maps on My GARMIN nuvi 200W

I bought the nuvi 200w and when I registered the unit it said that there was an updated map available so I down loaded and installed it. When I turned the unit on, it said no detailed maps available and would not work. I called garmin and they said that to fix it I had to hook the nuvi up to my computer and start>my computer>nuvi>garmin there is a file called gmapprom.img (shows over 1,000,000 mb) delete this file. Open all programs>garmin>mapsource highlight the areas on the map that you want and click on the add to device icon. After doing this, my nuvi is working fine. The explanation was that the original file had files for Canada that were not unlocked. Try this and good luck!

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 200w can't update all 49 lower states

OK, I just finally am getting through all of this myself.

First, the bad news. You cannot load all of the lower 49 states onto your Garmin 200W as-is. The map file is over 1GB and the 200W only has 991MBs of memory.

So, go out and get yourself a SD card. I got a 2GB card at OfficeDepot for $8. It was at the counter, not back with the other cards they carry (Note: The speed showed as 60x. The slightly more expensive ones, $12-$15, may be faster, like 150x.)

You'll also need to get yourself MapInstall, available from the Garmin site. BUT, don't try to use this right away, a mistake I made. If you do, you basically get a message that MapInstall can't be installed because it's not already installed. Seriously.

BUT, MapInstall GETS installed, or whatever, when you load your 2010 maps (or partial maps), so after you do your partial install, THEN you can install the MapInstall program. (May not be necessary, but remember, I did this out of order. Look for a "Garmin" folder under your Programs, or All Programs, and see if it's already there after you install your 2010 maps.)

Next, run MapInstall. The next mistake I made was that at the window where it finds your device, I clicked on the NEXT button. DON'T. Notice that your device is shown in a drop-down box. Click on that, and you can select your SD card for the destination.

THEN click NEXT. On my system, it appears as if it shows you what IS already on the 200W, and lets you select whatever you want to add. I put everything else available on the SD card.

I just this minute finished loading "the rest" and checked it out. Works flawlessly. I easily found a seafood restaraunt in Anchorage (Alaska was not loaded in the intitial install.)

Just remember that you have to keep the SD card in the Garmin at all times to use those maps. That really shouldn't be a problem though.

Hope this helps eveyone.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 200W keeps rebooting after 2009 maps

Try to hold the power button to the left for approximately 15 seconds, then release it. It should then reset and turns ON. I hope this helps.

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.

You can purchase maps for download at Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.

Garmin map downloading

Teamhs, I am assuming you have the Garmin Nuvi 200w or 200 which comes with a 1GB solid state drive. If so, the problem lies with the fact that the North American map preloaded with the 200 series is already around 910MB plus the help files and additional languages most of us don't use like Russian, Korean, Japanese etc etc that push it past 980MB or so. Now do the math and you'll find that the 37MB update doesn't fit in there, so now you have 2 choices.

1.- You can choose not to update.

2.- You can plug the Nuvi to your PC and explore the Garmin folder and get rid of the Help folder, which will not hinder the operation of the unit but will disable the HELP button when you power up the unit, and you can also remove all the languages you don't use from the Speech and Text folders. I removed all but American English and Spanish along with the help folder and was able to succesfully update my Nuvi. Now whenever I press the Help button in my Nuvi all I get is NO MATCH FOUND, which is no biggie to me. Hope this helps...
