Have you tried connecting your Nuvi to your PC using the USB cable? Garmin puts the manual on the Nuvi's directory in PDF format.

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.

Can an SD card for Costa Rica be purchased to fit in the Garmin Nuvi 200W?


As far as I know an SD card is an SD card in any country. If that is what the satnav takes then it should work no problem. Hope this helps.

WHAT IS SD CARD FOR??


Hello TRICOUNTY,

Your Garmin GPS has an SD card slot. You can use this slot to insert a removeable SD memory card into the unit SD memory cards for used for storage by many portable devices. The most common useage for the GPS is to view pictures taken by a digital camera (which also uses an SD card) with the GPS's picture viewer function.

I am not sure what the ads you are referring to are. Where are you seeing the ads? On the GPS screen? After inserting a SD card into the GPS?

Best Regards,
Ken

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

Garmin Nuvi 200W SD card Problem


The problem is that the US 2008NT map takes up about 900MB, the update itself will push that up to 947MB. The Nuvi 200w has an internal memory of 1GB, the Help folder takes about 35MB and the text and speech files for all those other languages that you don't use or understand takes up about 30MB. So if you add all those up you come up with more than 1GB, and the SD card cannot be used for the US mapset (preloaded). It can only be used for additional map sets that you want to add like Europe, Mexico, Australia etc etc. So how do you update? Well you are going to have to decide if you really need all those extra voice and text languages such as Aafrikans, German, Spanish etc etc. If not, get rid of them. Also consider getting rid of the Help Folder since it's actually pretty useless, but I leave that up to you to decide.

Now for 3-belmont-E, your friends and yourself should have realized that the Garmin units read SD, not SD-HC which are different. When you got the 1GB SD card, it should come up as another drive. It will not show up as a folder on the Garmin unit itself, for example....
Your main drive is C: and your CD/DVD is D:, when you plug in the Garmin it becomes E: but if you have an SD card that will become F: so in reality your Garmin device will now be E and F, with F being the SD card. This is of course if the SD reader in the unit did not get damaged by you guys putting in the SD-HC card into it.
