I did exactly the same thing!. This is how I fixed it.
Use Updater.exe NOT WebUpdate. Download the latest firmware for your unit (the rgn file), then connect your nuvi via usb. Turn it on and hold the power button left, at the same time drag and drop the rgn file onto the Updater,exe. It will start automatically and reload the firmware over the corrupt one.

Contently trying to update gps firmware. It will not acquire satellites


Updating your operating system software might solve the problem.
  • Download WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Install it on your computer and connect your satnav to the computer with the mini USB cable
  • Run the WEBUPDATER program and it will search for updates to your satnav.
  • Install whatever updates it finds.
  • When the software has updated you get the option of installing optional updates. It's not necessary to install these unless you wish to
This may solve your problem.

Bought life time map update for my nuvi 200W. download tells me I'm lacking 459MB. I took every thing off that I can think of and cleared my personal settings. still lacking 459MB. bought 8 GB sdnc...


The reason that the download is telling you that you're short of space when you have the memory card in is that it's trying to download to the satnav rather than the memory card. The solution to this problem is at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps There may be more information there than you need but everything you could need to ask about updating maps is there including how to get the map onto your memory card.
You will probably have problems getting the satnav to recognise the 8 Gb memory card. The smaller and slower the card is the better chance you have but unfortunately older satnavs like the 200w is hit and miss. I have got some of them to work with SD cards while others just will not.

HI, I have a Garmin Nuvi 200W. Do you get frre map upgrades? Where do I go and how do I go about to update the maps? It has never been updated in about 4 years.


The only time Garmin give free maps is if a new map comes out within 60 days of you first connecting to satellites with your satnav. If you have it for four years I'm afraid you'll have to pay for the upgrade. Details of how to update your garmin nuvi satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I purchase the lifetime updates for my Nuvi 200W GPS and now it will not allow me to download any updates on to it due to not enough memory. What can I do. I am pretty upset because I spent the money for...


Unfortunately the garmin 200W, like most of the garmin satnavs, doesn't have much storage space so you should be given the option to download part of the map only to your satnav. To get the full map the only option is to download the map to your computer. When you go to download the map from the garmin website select OPTIONS. In the options menu select download to computer. This installs a program called Mapinstall on your computer which contains the map. If you need to use more of the map you can then either replace the part installed on your satnav by running the mapinstall program from your computer or install it to an SD card. Note however that while garmin say that nuvi satnavs support SD cards up to 16 Gb some cards don't seem to work in them. Before spending all the time it takes to put your map on the card test it in your satnav first by putting music or pictures on it to see if it works

I did exactly the same thing!. This is how I fixed it.
Use Updater.exe NOT WebUpdate. Download the latest firmware for your unit (the rgn file), then connect your nuvi via usb. Turn it on and hold the power button left, at the same time drag and drop the rgn file onto the Updater,exe. It will start automatically and reload the firmware over the corrupt one.
