Too easy..

Click on "WHERE TO?".

Then click on "FAVORITES".

Scroll down until you find "HOME", not the green bar on the top but scroll thru the favorites until you find "HOME" and select it.

Click on "EDIT", then on "DELETE".

Go outside your house, get a good satellite signal and click on "VIEW MAP".

You should zoom in or out according to your preference and click on the vehicle icon, as your are standing outside your house and...that's it! Just click on "YES" and enter the name as Home when it asks you "DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS LOCATION AS A FAVORITE?" You can even change the icon and enter other info...good luck!

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 200 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, 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.
I hope that helps.

Forgot pin code


Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.

Bought garmin nuvi 200 and seller didn't provide pin number


Take it back to the seller and try to get your money back. The seller does not provide the PIN number. The new user sets the PIN number and the security location. If you purchased this from a Garmin dealer, send it to Garmin with your original receipt and they will unlock it for you. If you purchased it privately, it was probably stolen. Garmin will not reset without an original receipt from a dealer.

I just got my new Garmin 205. I set home to


Give this a try.

To Delete/Change your “Home” location, you can go to favorites, tap on home, tap edit, and then tap on "Delete" which will allow you to reset the location in the original dialog. Just tap the Home button again from the favorites menu, and the Nuvi will walk you through the dialog again.

Innacurate Garmin Nuvi


The accuracy of your garmin is actually good. The accuracy is only as good as the accuracy of the addresses that Garmin got from every municipality.

You can not recalibrate the unit but you can reset the "home" setting by parking exactly where you want to call home and then setting that location as home.

When you select an address, make sure you select the right state/town since many addresses are the same and the state/town is the only thing that makes a difference.
Your garmin has a menu, find the menu and you will be able to fo to "ERASE ROUTE" or "CLEAR ROUTE" press it. It can be worded differently, but find the option with the words erase or clear.
For inserting the right address I will give you an example:
100 Main street, Farmingdale N.Y. is your address
touch select route, it will ask you for one bit of information at the time.
select town: Farmindale NJ, Farmingdale NY it will give you a list of Farmingdale towns in US. Select Farmingdale NY. If you live in NY.
next, it will ask select street: Main st you write your street, make sure you don't choose Main rd this is Main road not Main ST
next select number: insert 100 since this would be your house number.

Remember it is very important to select the right town and the right street to get to the right address.
You can practice by inserting addresses that are near to your location and then erasing it.
