Question about Garmin GPS

The SD card has fallen out of my Garmin Nuvi 200 sat nav. I have spoken to someone on the phone about it and he said it should work without it, but all it says is "acquring satellites".

The SD card has nothing to do with Satellite Reception. It would only matter if the SD has your maps on it. It soulds like you have an antenna issue. have you tried a reset?

The reset is on the bottom rear of the unit where the decal & model number are. Press it.

Let me know if you're still haveing reception issues.

How do I up date my garmin nuvi 205w maps sat nav


Unless you have an LM (lifetime maps) model you must pay to download the software from the Garmin website, it is about $50-$75. If you do have the free maps then go to the Garmin website and register the GPs and then follow the instructions to update the map package.

Copy the new maps onto the SD card be sure that the card has enough space on it. ( you might need a SD Card reader ) copy the old maps onto your PC before deleting the SD card, copy all the data into the root folder of your sat nav. hope this helps

Have accidently wiped mapping from garmin sat nav


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200.

The error message you are receiving about maps is actually a sign of a firmware corruption problem, which just happens from time to time with electronic devices. Updating the firmware of your nuvi will replace the corrupt firmware.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software. Occasionally a nuvi 200 will also need a Hard Reset (preceded by a favorites backup) to bring it back to 100% operation.


I hope that helps.
