Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.

SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

SOURCE: My Garmin nuvi 1390 quit working while driving in

Your Garmin went into hibernation mode. This is due to the fact that it went below 38 degrees. This triggers this so called "sleep mode". To undo this state, simply hold the power button down for 15-30 seconds until it comes on again.

Hello Brian,

Sorry it took a couple days to get to the point of solving your problem with your Garmin. I wanted to do the best I can to help you. So i spent some time and I personally called via my resources A friend of mine the deals with Garmin direct. With our research and phone tag with Garmin, the results are in. It appears the problem is in a chip inside called the logic board, is or has become faulty. That is the reason it will not be recognized on the computer as well as the manual boot override will not solve this problem. They told me this I quote: They state it is a defective/substandard part being used in the unit that is not the customers fault however they said that the unit is automatically covered through manufacture warranty.

Bottom line is this, the unit has to be sent in for repair, but if its not under warranty, then the cost for repair, compared to buying a new refurbished one, would not be practical. Here is what I have done in the past with great success. With many gps, when there not working correctly and there out of warranty, I write them a letter direct, and brag how much i love the unit and so forth. You know really build up up (ego boost) then state that you are wanting to keep bragging to your friends about how great the unit is, but your little embarrassed now, as unit is not working correctly and if there is anyway they can solve this problem.

I have had about a 90% positive result with a letter like that, even to the point of them sending out a new unit even when warranty was expired.

So, I am sorry, there is no buttons to push, or boots up to fix it, this is a problem internal with the logic board. I hope this helps, that was with tons of phone calls and me digging into problem fully. Thanks Mike

Garmin Nuvi 1390 voice prompt does not work


If your garmin nuvi's voice prompt does not work anymore, then you have to connect it to a system, back up all your files, then you reset or format it, once you have done that, then you restore your maps back on it, then you connect it back to where you took it out from, then you reset the voice prompt. After doing this Your voice prompt should be in good order.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 1390 Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 1390 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.
