Try a hard reset

To do a Master Reset on the nuvi® 2xx, 2x5, 5xx, 6xx, or 7xx:
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nüvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

I just turned on my 2008 nuvi200 and instead of the opening screen to choose Map or Select Destination, i get a grey windwo pop-up that says ''No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot...

It sounds like the nuvi's file system has become corrupted, so it no longer sees the maps that were loaded into it. You might connect the USB cable between the nuvi and your computer to see what you can see when it acts like a USB storage device.

Also, if you haven't already registered your nuvi with the Garmin web site, you should. They have a downloadable browser extension that should prove helpful. If it complains that you have no maps loaded, then you'll have something to hang your hat on.

Assuming the nuvi is otherwise healthy, this might be the time to purchase the current map version, which will download directly into the unit through the USB port.

2009 is the latest mapping Garmin has. If your unit is running 2008 or before, and your unit was first used within the last 60 days, you can register your unit with and receive a free map update.

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
