Whenever I turn on my Nuvi 200 it shows the mass storage mode icon and will not display maps. How do I get rid of this problem?

With a Nuvi, If a Garmin or Garmin compatible power cord is not used, GPS will stay on the USB Mass Storage mode and will not go to Map Screen even though connector fits fine. In this case GPS can slowly charge. So, you need to find/obtain a power supply that works right.

My unit is not charging when in the cradle


Do you notice the power light is activated on your 12v power cable? If it is not first step is to obtain a new power cord and see if it fixes your units issue. If it dosent the unit may be dead, being an older unit i wouldnt recommend sending it in for repair due to the fact that a newer unit would cost less.

Hope this helps!

My GPS screen says "USB Connected" whenever the

your cord has a short in it. Try to fix it or buy another.
That happened with my Magellan last month when the silver square connector started coming out of the cord. Try pushing it back in, but they do short out there at the connector for some reason

Missing small adapter part

Hi marshaw40,

I'd recommend you attempt to contact Garmin support to see if they can supply you with this part. Their phone number is 1-800-800-1020 (U.S.). If they are not able to supply the part by itself then you may have to purchase a new power cord for the unit.

Best Regards,

Can't find satellites

There are two solutions to your problem. #1, It's possible your power cord is too close to the GPS Antenna on the back of your unit. Moving the cord away from the top of the unit should solve this problem... this is in cases where you get a "few" Satellites, but not enough to generate a "Valid" GPS Signal.

#2, The SD card and/or the Software is corrupted. In which case, you'll need to reinstall the software from backups. It's not uncommon for this to happen, as the unit typically sits in a blazing hot car interior. There is usually one file that causes a lot of troubles... and it typically gets corrupted when the unit is still "Navigating" to a route when the machine is turned off. That file is located in the Favorites Folder under User Data (DestinatorApps/Destinator/UserData/Favorites) The file within the Favorites Folder you need to get rid of is "FAVORITES.INI". The file isn't all that useful... the GPS unit will function without in and generate a new one after rebooting the unit. If you're worried about deleting it, you can always copy it onto your computer (I don't recommend putting it back in the GPS though).

The best way to prevent this problem in the future is to make sure to "Cancel" Navigation before turning your unit off. Good luck.
