Typically downloaded maps can simply be installed by placing the downloaded file in a certain directory on your supplementary memory - in this case a micro-SD card. You can either plug your Garmin into your computer with a USB cable or use a SD card slot to do this.
You want to place the (unzipped) gmapsupp.img file under e.g. E:\Garmin\ after backing up any data on the storage device you are writing to. If its a new SD card you will need to create that folder.
You need to download the map to your compute rather than the SD card. When downloading the default destination is the satnav but you can change it to your computer. When it's installed to your computer you then click the windows START button and in the list of programs you'll find a GARMIN folder with a program called MAPINSTALL. Connect the satnav to your computer with the SD card in. Run MAPINSTALL and select the SD card as the destination.
You can buy direct from Garmin via this link. You can opt for instant download, purchase of SD memory cards or DVD ROM medium. You may also be able to buy maps at some of the outdoor stores and electronics specialty shops.
If you plan on using this GPS in North America from this point on, you might want to look into purchasing a "Lifetime Maps" subscription for about $119 instead of the one-time map purchase for $79. The subscription allows you do download updated maps up to 4 times per year, for life of the GPS. Contact Garmin Support directly for more info about this option.
Yes, you will need to download the webupdater program from Garmin to get new maps for your Nuvi 200. Transfer the files to your SD memory card and then plug that SD card into your Nuvi 200. Click on the link below to get started
I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.
1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps" 2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse 3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID 4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button. 5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file. 6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code. 7. Download Img2Gps and run 8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it. 9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in. 10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin 11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card. 12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card 13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS 14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again. 15. Upload will take a while. 16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory. 17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension). 18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file. 19. Close the file. 20. Disconnect the Garmin. 21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.
