Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
My Garmin is only one year old. A month ago, letters started disappearing from the touch keypad...strange. Yesterday it would freeze when it was time to enter the city. Today it shuts off when it gets to the 'enter city' screen. Dissapointing....
Hi and welcome to FixYa! I'm the expert that chose your issue to resolve.
It sounds as if the display is failing on your Nuvi and there is really no way a consumer can repair these units. I've shown the link to out of warranty repair at Garmin. As you will see, it is not inexpensive to have them repair it $125.00 flat rate) and you may want to consider a replacement GPS (if you're unhappy with Garmin, then you may decide to try another brand). The bright side of this equation is that when Garmin repairs a unit, they also load the latest software and maps (a map update is recommended at 1 year intervals due to constantly changing information) which would normally cost you $69.00 anyway. That sort of brings the price to repair your unit down to about $55.00 which is not too bad. New unit prices range wildly from $100-$200 on the internet.
