I bought the nuvi, but am to ignorant to understand the pamphlet. Where do I find step by step info on how to use it, how to add addresses, how to go from A to B, ets. A simple understandable operational manual.

    Solution! I went back to the shop and got a new one. Same problem. Took it back again and after searching through their stock it was fourth time lucky. In the meantime the salesman phoned a friend at another shop and he said they had seven problem units in a batch of fifty. I wrote to Garmin, but received no answer. Thanks for trying. Number four is working, but I am still holding my breath...Pieter Coetzee

This is an indication that the map or map unlock key is either missing or corrupted. If you have registered your unit with Garmin, try connecting to your PC and try downloading the map again. More info on missing maps can be found here:

Garmin nuvi 200 ,I wiped all the software off my nuvi 200 if anyone has a backup a garmin 200, could I have a copy please. thanks Daniel-husse


If its a registered unit, you can go to Garmin.com and get it free.
It would not give you updated maps for free though (unless you bought the lifetime maps)

Garmin nuvi 200 says no maps found after trying to update my maps with the free download for it


Press Tools, press Settings, press Maps and press Map Info. The map name should be displayed with a tick beside it to show it's selected. If there's no tick press the map name and the tick shoule appear. This should solve the problem if the map is installed correctly.

Have accidently wiped mapping from garmin sat nav


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200.

The error message you are receiving about maps is actually a sign of a firmware corruption problem, which just happens from time to time with electronic devices. Updating the firmware of your nuvi will replace the corrupt firmware.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software. Occasionally a nuvi 200 will also need a Hard Reset (preceded by a favorites backup) to bring it back to 100% operation.


I hope that helps.

How can i unlock my garmin nuvi 200. what steps do i have to do to access my garmin.i bought my garmin from a friend who got it at a pawnshop.and its asking me for a pin that i do not have.can you help me?


Since you bought the device used, it's likely the previous owner did not clear the passwords and data. Short of tracking down the previous owner, there is no way to unlock the unit without doing a factory reset. Here's a guide to reset the Garmin GPS units to their original factory settings.

WHERE TO FIND FREE MAP FOR CANADA. GPS GARMIN NUVI 200


My understanding is there are no free maps and anyone using or offering one is liable for prosecution. The use of unpaid maps is Piracy and not part of this forums brief to supply them or point one in the direction to where pirate software may be offered.

Most times the maps require an activation code which is part of the licence code issued with your GPS and the Map being purchased.

Many companies are now applying security tags to maps that when operated lock the unit so it is dysfuctional and has to be sent to the manufacturer to be unlocked for a fee + the licence for new maps, so beware

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.
