GARMIN NUVI SCREEN UNRESPONSIVE/LOCKED?

I WENT TO THE MOVIES WITH MY GPS [GARMIN NUVI 200] IN IT'S CASE [LEFT ON] I MUST HAVE PRESSED ON THE CASE AS I HEARD BEEPS FROM INSIDE. WHEN I WENT TO USE IT IT IS UNRESPONSIVE AND THE LETTER "N" IS LIT UP [HIGHLIGHTED]. PLEASE HELP ME GET IT BACK TO GOOD HEALTH. I CANNOT TURN IT OFF EITHER, NOR CAN I LOCATE A RESET BUTTON.

    I WAS JUST JUST GIVEN THE ADVICE TO REMOVE THE BATTERY ETC!. WHILE SEARCHING MY GARMIN MANUAL I FOUND THE RESET BUTTON LOCATION, PRESSED IT AND EVERYTHING IS BACK TO NORMAL. THANKS KEVIN. I SHOULDN'T HAVE PANICKED BUT I DESPERATELY NEED THIS LITTLE BOX OF LOGISTICAL KNOWLEDGE AS IT'S MY NAVIGATOR WHEN ON THE ROAD. THANK YOU.

    YES, THANK YOU. IT WAS A SIMPLE FIX BY PRESSING THE RESET BUTTON THAT I INITIALLY COULD NOT LOCATE.

    else the only way is just send it back to garmin. since they are very prompt with repairs, and usually you'll get your unit back within a week. ui may try out tis..

Hi,

Initially, pls try a hard reset. This would be a small button under the serial number. Should this not be sufficient pls try a system reset which of course would revert the unit back to factory default and remove any and all user settings and configurations. Pls see this link for the general procedures. Additional reference may be found here.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Updated Garmin Nuvi 200 with Garmin Express. Now the Garmin reads "No detailed maps found to support routing". I pressed on the screen until this mesage left the screen and returned to the regular start...


Time for an update. Go to Garmin.com and get it done. If you haven't done this for a while you might get a new OS too. The older models use a lot of the memory for the updates and might need to download a smaller range map.

Whenever I turn on my Nuvi 200 it shows the mass storage mode icon and will not display maps. How do I get rid of this problem?


With a Nuvi, If a Garmin or Garmin compatible power cord is not used, GPS will stay on the USB Mass Storage mode and will not go to Map Screen even though connector fits fine. In this case GPS can slowly charge. So, you need to find/obtain a power supply that works right.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

I just bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 and just stays black screen?


My Garmin 200 did the same on two occasions. On the bottom to the left of the serial number is a tiny reset button. Press that using a pencil point and all will be reset. And you don't lose any map data, so don't worry!

My garmin nuvi 670 touch screen is not calibrated


Have you tried using the screen calibration command? Press the Wrench symbol, then the Display symbol and then Calibrate screen. Press the dots as it tells you to and you should now have a calibrated touchscreen.
