Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and cannot load 2010 update

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and cannot load the 2010 update due to memory limitations. Garmin support (after 35 minutes on hold) told me that I either had to choose a region to install or I could install all by adding an SD memory card. Have done this but still get the "not enough memory" message....Garmin has no instructions on how to install to an SD card....any ideas?

Install the SD Card. When you select your maps and transfer them to the device, make sure the Nuvi is plugged into the USB. When you are on the screen to "Find Device", select the dropdown menu and you should see the drive letter referencing your SD card. Select that and you should be all set.

Does the garmin nuvi 200 have free map updates


Use the Garmin Express program from Garmin. Down load and install the program, then connect your GPS to your PC. The program will identify your GPS and tell you of any available map and software updates.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 200 or 200W 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 200 and 205 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.

Need an update


You'll need a USB cable to connect to your computer, and you need to go to....
http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/extras/downloads
There you'll find all the map updates for your GPS. DO NOT TRY TO LOAD THE ENTIRE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE MAP ONTO YOUR NUVI 200. It doesn't have enough memory. Load only US map!!!
I speak from experience. Been there, done that! Best regards, -Ric Carvalho

  1. Back up your Favorites.

I can't get an update on my nuvi gps 200 for maps, even the map of Mexico.


the Nuvi 200 has an extremely small memory, less than 1gb. The US maps for the nuvi 200 only include the lower 48 for that reason. Not sure how large the map file is for Mexico but your only safe option is to contact Garmin direct.

On the screen of my satnav it says i need to upgrade because it is more than a year old , my satnav is a garmin nuvi 200


No, Your Garmin 200W is simply informing you that a update to 2010 is avalable, simply by a date code. Depending on your area you msy have new listings in your area, Coffee shops, ATM, & Hotel listings and new roads & extits
Your current map 2008 will still work just as it did. You can update your maps to the 2010 currently out from Gamins web site, I think the cost is right at $75 per unit

Not enough space for maps?


The garmin does not have any space on it for maps,any additional maps are stored on a memory
card. I don't see where garmin says the size limit of the card but in most cases unless it says
SDHC memory card,then the max is a 2g sd card, I think the models 500 and over can use over a 2g card.,
