Loading Australian Maps on Nuvi 200

I bought my sister a new Nuvi 200 in South Africa, now she moved to Australia and the gps helps her diddley squat over there, because it's loaded with South African Maps. They are still busy trying to find their feet whilst trying to get to know the city/country. What is the easiest / cheapest way of trying to solve their problem and load New Australian maps on for them?

She can purchase the City Navigator Australia DVD and load the Australian maps onto an SD card. Insert this into the unit and she'll then have both S Africa and Australia maps.

Does my TomTom have free maps


Usually, if you buy a (new) TomTom with a "free" lifetime maps, it is only for the (one) existing/current map(s) installed on the device. So, if that applies to your TomTom, you'd be able to get maps for South Africa (for life).
To get a TomTom map for Australia, just go to the tomtom website, (www.tomtom.com) and click on "Maps & Services" ... and you'll be able to select and buy/subscribe to the map(s) you want.

How to download australian maps onto nuvi250 with south african maps


Hello,

It is never recommended that you install the maps in the unit, there is a slot in the unit for an SD card you will have to install your Australian maps to an SD and insert them into the GPS.



Hope this helps!

GPS doesn't boot up


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

Getting stuck at the Loading Maps page or rebooting before finishing 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:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.


You can purchase maps for download at https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do?null&ra=true. Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.

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.
