Even the USB drivers from Garmin's website don't work for Windows XP. Pretty sad that Garmin's products don't come with CDs specific to that product and don't interface with Windows correctly. Didn't even come with a USB cable, had to dig up an old one.

When I plung my Gps in the car, it won't start, all I get is a picture of a computer loading...? (GPS nuvi 255W)


Sometimes this happens because the charger plug is not pushed fully into the satnav even though it feels like it is. Pushing it in further may solve the problem.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 200 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, 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.
I hope that helps.
