Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Unable to unlock maps for garmin nuvi 200 I am having trouble getting new stuff on my Garmin Nuvi 200. I registered it thinking it would let me download mapsource and it didnt. So then I got a pirated copy, and it says I need a garmin product on the computer. Well, the 200 comes with NO software what so ever. I need to get some Euro maps on there for a trip!

    well that would be easy, and very expensive. I paid $68 for my Nuvi, which is the only reason I got it. I can not afford 3 times the cost of the machine for some maps. I am a poor college student. One day I will have a real job, and have lots of money, and I will not have to take the cheap way out, but until then I will do my best to be cheap

Here's a thought: instead of trying to install pirated maps which don't/won't work on your unit, how about actually buying the maps which are guaranteed to work. You will get a free copy of Mapsource on the disk with the maps of Europe.

    Thankyou for the "Inappropriate" rating because I told you to buy legitimate maps instead of trying to use pirated software which will not work. Somehow that doesn't surprise me. We are not here to help you install stolen software.

How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

How do you download a map to the Nuvi 200


Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmin nuvi 200; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

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)

I have a Garmin Nuvi 250 and I am having trouble with its software. I have rebooted the device and reinstalled the original software. It keeps coming up with 'No detailed maps found that support routing....


Press tools, then press settings, then press map. The map name should be shown with a tick beside it. If it's not ticked press the map name to tick it. Then it should be ok.

The only other reason you should have this problem is if the map is locked. You can unlock it by going to www.garmin.com. Click on My Garmin, if you've already registered the sat nav. Click on maps and you'll get your unlock code there. If you haven't already registered it you'll need to do so now to get into My Garmin.

You need to call garmin to have them help you unlock your unit. It sometimes requires the 25 digit unlock code which they have on hand. 1-800-800-1020 I believe.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.
