What have you tried? without knowing anything else, one suggestion is to make sure you are using the correct unlock key number. There are at least three numbers located on the disk.

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.

My sd card does not show its property and doesn't format it?


normally when this occurs, its means the SD card is dead and u will need to replace it.

try connecting the sd card into a different computer or another external SD card reader. If it shows up . right click and click format. If it says it cant format it it means the card needs to be replaced.

How to unlock the micro sd memory card's password


Sorry. You can't. But you can usually recover use of the card by inserting it into an external SDHC card reader (using a suitable micro SDHC to SDHC adapter) and then refomatting the card. You may need to use the host computer to go into the cards properties first to uncheck the "read only" status.

This makes all data stored on the card overwriteable as if it's no longer there, but there is plenty of free/cheap data recovery software which can recover data from reformatted memory cards as long as the card has not been used after formatting.

When i open my memory card in my file manager a MSDC write sector error appear. What Shall I Do


Garmin maps on SD card are not intended to be useful outside the GPS. You can't download the data to use elsewhere, use it in Mapsource, etc. Only in the GPS.

This is why it is common to buy the DVD version and install the mapset on your own SD card.

I believe this is the root of the problem. If you believe the card itself is defective give Garmin a call/email and they will replace it. It is not likely the case, though, based on my experience helping people with Garmin SD problems.

Garmiin nuvi gps,


The device uses SD cards actually. They will not however work with TOPO maps or Bluechart. They are primarily for loading media or city street maps for other country's.
