Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
"The nuvi cannot be used without them."
I just posted this for someone else and it worked on my Nuvi 200:
"When you downloaded and installed the WebUpdater, you also got a program called MapInstall. Use it, pick the states/areas you want to install and watch the bar on the right. It will turn green and "fill up" as it calculates the amount of space needed on your gps vs. the amount available. When you have chosen too much it will let you know by turning all red.
You can ignore that huge 2GB executable file Garmin had you download. I think it's supposed to be a self extractor/application for installing the maps but has three drawbacks: One, it's painfully slow; Two, it does not work. It will go way past 100% completed and then give you a message that it failed to update your maps; and Three, once it begins the update it erases your old maps leaving you with a Nuvi that's useless without them. I tried it three times, with three different machines (after waiting 45 minutes for the Garmin helpless desk to tell me it was my chipset that was causing the problem. Nope) and got the same result. This leads me to believe the self extractor is flawed.
Once you have chosen all your states or provinces, click on the finish button and it will load those maps and you'll have a usable, updated Nuvi again. I spent the best part of a day with the .exe file because the process was so slow, and when I did it the above way it took maybe 20 minutes.
Good luck, hope you see this solution."
