How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

I have a 200 nuvi gps, it always takes me the long way to my destinaotion, how do I update it?


If you are willing to spend $89.00 you can purchase a lifetime maps update/upgrade through the Garmin website. All you have to do is log into their website - www.garmin.com - connect your Garmin to your computer with the USB cable and purchase the upgrade. You might want to consider purchasing a new Garmin that comes with lifetime maps as your 200 is an older unit and its life may be short. A new unit, like a 1300LM, runs $139.99 at Best B**, as of 01/30/11, will come with a new fresh battery and the newest maps pre-loaded and it will allow you to update those maps FREE for the life of the unit. These ideas might help you wayward travels. GOOD LUCK

Are there any satellite updates so that garmin will find a route?


Yes. You have to pay for them either at the store or going through garmin website itself. Garmin does have a lifetime update for maps for $120 + tax if you want to go that route. Other than that it will be around $70 for the 2010 maps. The 2009 would be cheaper to get right now.

Software upgrade


2009 is the latest mapping Garmin has. If your unit is running 2008 or before, and your unit was first used within the last 60 days, you can register your unit with Garmin.com and receive a free map update.

GARMIN NUVI 200 SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING


You can download new maps..........free......................but..........

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.
