    I have a Garmin nuvi 200 and I cant change the home location. If I click on anything in "favorites" I'm able to edit it, but when I click home it just maps out home without giving me the option to edit or delete it

    I had that problem when I was in Nevada then went to Texas. Just go outside for a few minutes so your gps can connect to the satillite to find your current position. Easy as that! :-)

Try this:
Reset the GPS (you'll find the reset button somewhere in the back of the GPS.
when you reset it, make sure your GPS is out there- where it can pick up your location (satellite).
After that- you can set your home location from the favorites area.
Hope that will help.

This product is "discontinued" but you can still get the latest downloads and updates for it including the manuals etc. at: To set your home location go to: Where to?, the Go Home, the "Set home", gives you two options "use current" or "Enter address", Press the "wheel" to acknowlege the message you will get when it changes your location.

I couldn't figure out how to change my map location from Nevada to Texas while in the house. I looked all over the menus on the gps but got no info. So fixya told me to go outside for 10 minutes or so (I didn't need that much time, it only took minutes) with the gps turned on and let the satillite find your current location (which was Texas for me). That's it! So simple, I should have thought of it!

first turn it on and let the unit acquire satellites to find your home state. Then you can set up your address as your "home location". When I first set it up, I was able to pick up the satellites in my bedroom (scary....)...everything worked just fine.
