Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Touch Screen on my Garmin doesn't work

I haven't used my Garmin Nuvi 200 in about a month, and it was working fine last time I used it. When I turned it on today, everything happened like it was supposed to, but when I pressed "Agree" on the screen where it says not to use it and drive at the same time, nothing happened, then eventually the screen went to the search view like it does if you don't press agree, and I pressed "Search." Again nothing happened. It's not frozen because the signal bars change when I move it in the air, and so does the time. So I can only assume the touch screen has stopped working. Is there anyway to fix it without paying more than it was worth for it to be professionally fixed?

I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 255w freezes

mine would constantly cycle in the reboot. I had to clear the stored data by pressng and holding the lower right side of the screen and turning on the gps. once it boots up, it will ask if you want to clear the data memory (will not clear the actual maps). say yes, when it reboots, you will have to redo your personal settings as if it was new out of the box.

Not being able to start up is a sign that the system software or firmware of your Nuvi has become corrupt.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

Get on the Garmin website.
Speak to a customer service rep.
Garmin is very helpful in these situations.
If you can connect the GPS to your computer they can upload the correct maps directly to the unit.
Depending on how and from where you acquired the GPS ther may be no charge for this.

Whenever I turn on my Nuvi 200 it shows the mass storage mode icon and will not display maps. How do I get rid of this problem?


With a Nuvi, If a Garmin or Garmin compatible power cord is not used, GPS will stay on the USB Mass Storage mode and will not go to Map Screen even though connector fits fine. In this case GPS can slowly charge. So, you need to find/obtain a power supply that works right.

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.

Nuvi 650 touch screen dead/unresponsive it worked a few weeks ago, been inside the house in the A/C vs. the hot car and now it won't react to touch. Tried the steps from the manual but never get...


The touchscreen & glass needs to be replaced. I've seen and repaired many of these screens even when they show no physical sign of damage. It's due to a bad production run of screens. Please see this link for more info:

I just bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 and just stays black screen?


My Garmin 200 did the same on two occasions. On the bottom to the left of the serial number is a tiny reset button. Press that using a pencil point and all will be reset. And you don't lose any map data, so don't worry!

Garmin Nuvi 350 GPS, not working


Hello, Here was my problem. I was traveling at 60mph yesterday and my Nuvi 360 dislodged and fell down with a huge impact inside my car. I came home and tried to look for any damage. Unfortunately Nuvi had stopped to continue beyond loading maps screen. I tried rebooting , but the problem persisted. It would take me to reboot screen, but after screen calibration, when it came to loading map screen, again went blank. I tried this and just simple starting by pushing power button several times but to no avail. I called technical support, eho advised me to to just simply connect it to my labtop and leave it that way for 3 to4 hours. Bingo!, in the next 30 mins, I accidentally switched my laptop top off, but Nuvi had started to work all fine.
