    I am also trying to update our GPS system as well. Could someone explain, in detail, how to do so. When it asks me the make of my product......I can't find the product name in the drop down box. I have the serial #, but then am told that the serial number does not match the product. Help!

For online updating you must have Webupdater

After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform allfuture software updates from your computer. Simply connect yourcompatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater fromyour computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs","Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater".

Attention! It were cases that unit software newer than on Garmin site and it were losings of local language support after online updates. You must deside before do you need these changes of firmware or not so important.

How do you download a map to the Nuvi 200


Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmin nuvi 200; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

How do I get free map updates?


If the unit is new you get a free map update within the first few months after that they will charge a fee, but you can still update the unit for software and fixes.

If its a registered unit, you can go to Garmin.com and get it free.
It would not give you updated maps for free though (unless you bought the lifetime maps)
