There are a few options for you...
1. Check to see under what kind of conditions the GPS loses it's signal. If there are tall buildings, is a cloudy day etc or even the position of the GPS in the car (does it have a clear sight of view of the sky)... In the latter case, you could change the position of the GPS where it gets a clear view of the sky. For Cloudy days, better have a map ready or preplan the route using mapquest/googlemaps, as nuvi 200 series is especially notorious for these type of situations. For tall building problems, what I do is (c330, not nuvi), just tap the route displayed on the top before the signal gets lost and memorize the next few upcoming turns. Or avoid downtown (where those huge skyscrapers are)
2. If you have enabled WAAS setting in the settings menu (it should be somewhere under "GPS mode", disbale/uncheck it and use the normal GPS mode. WAAS may provide you a more accurate position, but at the expense of some avaialble satellites.

3. Or your GPS may have a genuine problem, then your only recourse is to call Garmin and talk to them. Here's the contact info:

Good Luck. Personally I would avoid the 200 series and go with the 3xx, 6xx or even better the 7xx series (if you need all the bells & whistles)

SOURCE: no gps signal

Is the Flip-Up antenna UP? Can the unit 'see' the Sky? - Most only work near the front windshield.poorly everywhere else in the car. The layers of car metal blocks or attenuates (cuts down/reduces) the satellite signals. Also, there might be a MENU option to enable/disable GPS. If you get no joy, could be the connection to the antenna is bad/broken. If all else fails, look for a tiny hole somewhere on the outside of the case and press into it gently with apaperclip. Good Luck

To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

I hope that helps.

Can you use a car tomtom when walking


Yes, definitely You can, but that will not provide correct position of GPS signal. And GPS signal will be showed with delay.
Otherwise You can Use TomTom as You walking,
Battery will not last much long. So make sure You charge Your TomTom Nav in full. :)

PMD-B200When i put my nav into the dock stationitgoesblank


I have a similar problem where my B200 just blanks right out and doesn't want to come back on until I pull it out of the head for about 1/2 hour! It also did not want to turn on outside of the head at all - I'm assuming dead battery. I phoned support here in Canada and they told me that it might be because the unit is not fully charged while in the head. He suggested that I pull the GPS out and try to charge it using the dedicated AC outlet for it. I'm trying this now! As for the firmware update for the B200, there ISN'T one as of yet. From what I've read, Alpine discontinued the Blackbird B200. Alpine support said that they are working on a newer firmware for the unit but I won't hold my breath if they discontinued the device!

Alpine sat nav would not load...


This is not uncommon, before resorting to Alpine, try a DVD cleaning disk. It may be necessary to try it up to 6 or 7 times, but it's a lot cheaper than dealer service!!

No sound from turn by turn navigation


I have an MRA-F350 decoder/amp, which needs a KCE-900E between the Nav and the Head to correctly route the audio.  Without it, you'll only hear directions when you're specifically tuned to the Nav input.

I looked at the manual for your processor, and it looks like it needs the same thing (pg 42 in PDF on Alpine's site)

GPS not able to lock (SNR often 0, sometime in thee 5-10 range)


Me again...I took the unit apart and found out that there is a coax cable between the back board and the middle board. The cable has plug in connectors (v. small size) and the female connectors are soldered SMT on the boards. They are coming out quite easy..so one of them was literally ripped off the board. I soldered it with quite a fine iron,did a reset and I am back in business.....as a footnote my readings in AZ /El were all zeros!!!!
