    Is it fully charged? Have you tried pressing the reset button underneath the antenna?

The Nuvi 200 and 300 are quite different. On the Nuvi 200, disconnect any external power to the unit and press the reset button located on the back of the unit, on the lower left hand side. It should be marked "reset". Then reconnect the power and try to turn the unit on with the on/off switch by moving the switch to the left.

Jim,

I wrote down the wrong model--it is a nuvi 200. I don't see an antenna or button...only the on/off button on top. Where would I find this?

Thanks!

Jim,

I wrote the wrong model...it is the nuvi 200. I do not see an antenna or any kind of button other than the on off control. Where would I look?

Thanks!

Hi I have just tried to set up my son's ocean netbook. I seem to have locked the keyboard somehow!! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


Locked as in it doesn't accept input? Some laptops will have physical buttons on them for disabling the touchpad and keyboard. Please list the make and model if you need further help.

Thanks

Unlock maps


I do know a 'workaround' to Garmin's copy-protection for maps you legally are entitled to use, but before that, when a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

Garmin nuvi 300 asking for pin number


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

Hey... I found a USB cable that fit my Nuvi and then downloaded updated system software from Garmin's support site. It included a bug fix for corrupted keyboards. After running the update, it works! My keyboard is all correct again.

Have you used the wall charger to fully charge the battery? If the battery is too low after lying around for a month it wil not start, giving it a couple of minutes of charging wo'nt help either, a good and full charge will!
