There is more information than you can believe pre-loaded into the Garmin unit itself. It has a lot more information stored inside than the user manual that comes with a new unit. Click on the wrench tab at the bottom of the "where to" screen thenhit the help button. If the 8 bars do not offer the specific information you are looking for hit search and type in the specific thing you are looking for. There is a ton of info in there.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 200 or 200W Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 200 and 205 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.

HELLO I JUST BOUGHT A GARMIN NUVI 350 FROM A PAWN SHOP AND IT'S LOCK HOW DO I UNLOCK THE UNIT PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANKS


Garmin Lock works by using either a 4 digit pin code or by taking the unit back to a preset security location. Although Garmin warn that this should NOT be the user's home address, that's what it normally is. If you know where the last owner lived then you can try going to that location to see if it unlocks, but if you knew that piece of information you could just ask the last owner...

It came from a pawn shop though, so it's very unlikely that you know who the last owner was or where he/she lived.

There is no other way to unlock your unit without sending the unit back to Garmin. There's a charge for the service and you'll be asked to provide evidence that you own the unit; in practice it's going to be cheaper to buy a similar brand new Garmin model. All I can suggest is that you try to get a refund from the pawn shop (unlikely!) or sell it to another unsuspecting person.

Sorry, but Garmin Lock is deliberately difficult to overcome otherwise it wouldn't be much use as an anti-theft deterrent.

Purchased device from a pawn shop who states a customer locked it in the store. brought it and researched on line and it appears only sending it to garmin will work. Hard to believe no one has figured it...


If a customer had locked the unit in a pawn shop, it would unlock in the same pawn shop as this would be the security location. And why would you buy a GPS you could not use? You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin GPS:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

No one has "figured it out yet" and there is no "fix" because this is a security design and not a flaw in the unit. It is to prevent someone from using a stolen GPS. If there were a workaround, the feature would be useless.

I bought a garnim nuvi 205w from a pawn shop it has a password on it. Is there a code to unlock this unit. My next step is to send it to garmin or back to the pawn shop.


There's a small hole near the power jack. With the unit plugged in, use a paper clip and push in LIGHTLY into this hole. It will reset the unit back to factory specs.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and I just bought it from the pawn shop. It is locked...Can someone help me please and thank you.


I am not sure if this will work for a locked unit, but try, with unit OFF, pressing bottom right corner of the screen with your thumb. While still holding down on the screen with your thumb switch the power on and this MAY reset the unit and give you access to the unit. If this does not work call Garmin support at 800-800-1020 and they may be able to help. Good luck.

Need a manual for Garmin nuvi 200. Lost manual and need to upgrade maps. Do I send the gps back to manufacturer for upgrade?


Here is the link for the full Nuvi 200 manual. No, you do not need to send the unit back. You can purchase a map online and download the map to your Nuvi using a USB to mini-USB cable.
