    Did you try pressing the reset button on the bottom. Its located under the decal. You should be able to press it without having to remove the decal. If that doesn't work, please let me know.

Hello. I have a Garmin Nuvi level 200. The car charger was damaged so I have purchased two at two separate stores. Neither works. When you plug it into the car charger, an icon showing "garmin connected...


The problem is not the power lead. It's the socket on the back of the satnav. Due to wear when you plug in the mini usb plug it feels as if it's fully in but it's not. Push it in further and it'll work ok.

When plugging into car outlet Garmin 200 goes into computer interface mode


You have to use a car charger with sufficient power capacity for your Nuvo 200.
I've used a mini USB car charger that came with my e-trex, but it works only some times when I do plug/unplugging during map loading (manipulating the computer mode setting). So, I bought a HTC mini USB care charger, and know the problem is solved. Another alternative is buy from Garmin Store, the type they recommend.

I bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 a couple of weeks ago but now it won't turn on even when I plug it into the charger. What can I do?


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

Not being able to start up is a sign that the system software or firmware of your Nuvi has become corrupt.

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

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..


My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
