Connect your Nuvi to your PC via USB. When your PC recognizes the Nuvi, select the Nuvi using windows explorer and click on the Garmin directory within your Nuvi. You should find a folder called "vehicles". Click on that folder and you should see the vehicle files. Just click on the one you want to remove and then right-click and select delete.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 205W and have saved a number of places as favourites. However, when I want to share the location with friends by giving them the map coordinates of these places I cannot find how to...


To view the coordinates of a saved location on your nuvi

  1. Touch Tools (wrench icon)
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.

I can't get an update on my nuvi gps 200 for maps, even the map of Mexico.


the Nuvi 200 has an extremely small memory, less than 1gb. The US maps for the nuvi 200 only include the lower 48 for that reason. Not sure how large the map file is for Mexico but your only safe option is to contact Garmin direct.

Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu. clip_image001.jpg clip_image002.jpg
If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on. Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer
  2. Some of the older Nuvi 200 series will have a reset button on the bottom of the device. It can be found on the bottom of the device on the same sticker that the serial number is printed on.
If your GPS unit powers down before it can fully boot up, the battery will need to be charged. Please charge the unit with the vehicle power cable or on a computer for at least three hours. After charging the unit, it should power on and function normally. If the unit will not charge in the vehicle, check the fuse in the power cable for the unit and the power outlet in the vehicle.

    REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.

Vehicle icon next to road on map


Some SatNavs / GPS units have a 'lock to road' option. Go through the manuals / screen menus to see if it has that option and set it on.

Garmin nuvi 200w map update 2009


Delete all the vehicles and voices that you don't use as well.

Btw, beware that the "City Navigator Lower 49 States+PR NT 2010.10, Deluxe, Apr 09" for nuvi 200/205 is BUSTED, it probably will not work (I just spent 2+hrs on the phone with garmin tech support to fix it.) Search these forums for "nuvi 205 no detailed maps" for more details.
