I suggest that you reinstall the software. Here's how:
  • Connect the Garmin to your computer with a USB cable
  • go to their web site at http://www.garmin.com
  • On the web site, register your product if you haven't already.
  • Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software.

Update version with all traffic and road assistance details


This model of Garmin GPS does not offer those features. They will not work on this model as the hardware is not built in. It is not just a software issue., You will need to purchase a later model which offers these features. Sorry.

Street names no longer announced


The 200W isn't supposed to have text-to-speech (where it actually speaks the street names). If yours did initially it was probably loaded on the unit by mistake at the factory. That feature isn't part of the 200W or it's software.

Updating 200W S/N 1F4003567


Greetings,
On the 200w the power slot is actually a mini usb port that you can use to plug into your computer to charge and install updates. Start HERE for some basic information and links to the manual. You will also need to purchase a usb cable if you do not have one that works. Click HERE for an inexpensive cable I have ordered for my clients.

To download the updating software click HERE Once you have downloaded and installed the software open it up and plug in the gps unit and the software should automatically recognize it. Click next and it will look for firmware updates (note: not map updates)

For map updates you must enter the serial number off your 200w HERE.

If you have any more questions let me know. Please rate me well if this has helped you.
