My 2 yr old Garmin nuvi 200 was working fine...when I got home and turned the car off, it quit working and won't turn back on. I keep it plugged into the lighter, so it's not battery power.

No it's not the battery power: your nuvi has suffered the firmware equivalent of a stroke.

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

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

You can download new

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.

Nuvi 200 GPS

We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.

Garmin Nuvi GPS Stopped working

Hey everyone I might have the solution:

Just got done "fixing" mine, turns out it didn't need any fixing whatsoever, just an update.

I had the same problem most of you seem to have:

Device: StreetPilot C340 worked great when I bought it and for months until one day, it just doesn't turn right?

I was halfway done with tech support for an RMA request, (some of you might still need this) and that's when I noticed the usb input on the side of the device (like most of you I thought, why the hell does it even have one?) I plugged my universal camera usb cord into the pc, (At this point the device was on! and charging too!) and went to the garmin website, feel free to search but you will end up with this page:

pretty straight forward after this, follow the step by step depending on whether you have a mac or pc, download and run the "webupdater" mine was for windows, so I ran this all the way through and bam your good to go, you even have the option of updating the voice and language preference after the initial updates.

hope this helped everyone!
