Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin Nuvi 200w will not turn on

I turned it on for the first time in about three weeks.  Some message came up about it not being able to find a route map and so it would not work.  I couldn't turn it off.  Finally it went off and now, even after pressing reset button on bottom, it will not turn on.

If the message you are receiving is saying "No detailed maps to support routing" then you will need to create a text file with your unlock code (You can find this in your MyGarmin account in the MyMaps > Manage Maps) section. The unlock code will need to be in all capitol letters with no spaces before or after it and no dashes. once you have saved the file, you will need to save it as gmapprom.unl (replacing the .txt file extension) and place it in the Garmin folder of your device. Turn the unit on, let it boot back up, and it should fix the error message. If it does not, you will need to call Garmin Product Support, as it is a mapping file error only they can fix.
