If the PC icon comes up while using the car charger, then there is a problem with your charger or mini-USB port on your Nuvi. Many after market chargers are not wired the same, causing the PC icon to show up on the screen. In this mode, your Nuvi will not charge nor can you use your Nuvi for navigation.

You can use your Nuvi with old maps. No one says you have to update. You'll just get an occasional reminder that your maps are outdated.

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 cannot update my garmin nuvi...how can i update my garmin map and software immediately


Hello,

To update your garmin nuvi, get it connected to your computer, back up the maps that are on it, then go to the main garmin nuvi's site to check out for latest updates, then update it.

It will be updated immediately, then you can reinstall the maps back on it. And your nuvi would be updated.

Take care

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.


You can purchase maps for download at https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do?null&ra=true. Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.
