Garmin shows picture computer


The computer picture shows if the usb cable connects to a computer. If the picture shows when the usb socket is connected to the cigar lighter power supply, it could be that the socket in the Garmin has got damaged. I had a Nuvi 200 like this where the socket had broken away from the circuit board inside, but the repair was difficult, involving micro-soldering!

Garmin shows picture of computer


Hello,

When the Garmin shows the picture of a computer, it means that the Nuvi is in mass storage mode. This mode is used to load software and map updates to the Nuvi and will usually go into this mode when connected to a computer or improper USB cable.
If this is occurring when it is connected to the vehicle power cable, chances are that the vehicle power cable is the wrong one.

How do you download a map to the Nuvi 200


Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmin nuvi 200; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

How do you shut the garmin nuvi 200 down I can't get it to shut off


Plug it to your power charger (connected to the el-net, of course). After the map loading has completed and you can start using it, unplug from power. A dialog box will pop up and ask you either to turn it off or to continue using it on. Choose to turn it off.

You will not be able to turn it completely off as long as it's connected to either a computer or a charger.

or you on/off push button is not working and needs to be repaired.

On my nuvi 200 the push button is a bit loose, and it easly turns on when I carry it in my pocket. Some adhecive tape will keep the button in place.

When I charge my nuvi 200 a picture of a computer modem connected to the unit is displayed


It's normal.
Becouse you use 4 wire usb cable.
And nuvi mounted as a drive to OS.
If to use 2-wire cable like for car lighter-it won't show the picture.

Register/Download Problem


This may be a problem with the Garmin web servers, as I actually had trouble updating the software in mine, saying it coulod not connect to the Garmin Update servers. But that was a week or two ago and I'd have expected that fixed by now. However, it's possible that's a problem too. However, a more probable one, is what I have to say below.
I'm wondering if its more a problem with the computer or cable, since the Garmin should be charging while connected to the PC and if its saying power is disconnected and it shuts down, then maybe it's a problem with the USB port on your computer, or possibly the cable though unlikely. Make sure you're using the official Garmin USB cable the unit came with. Also make sure you are using the right drivers for your USB high-speed ports.

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..


My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.

Garmin 660 wont operate on power lead


Are you using the Garmin AC adapter or the Garmin car adapter? Using the wrong cable and the Garmin will think that you are trying to connect to a computer. Not all USB cable are alike.

When connected to your computer it thinks that you want to upload or donwload information.
