The mini-USB jack needs to be either resoldered or replaced. When the jack is loose, you will not be able to charge the internal battery. The jack becomes loose from overuse. The jack needs more mechanical support to the pronted circuit board. I have fixed this problem many times.

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 plugging into car outlet Garmin 200 goes into computer interface mode


You have to use a car charger with sufficient power capacity for your Nuvo 200.
I've used a mini USB car charger that came with my e-trex, but it works only some times when I do plug/unplugging during map loading (manipulating the computer mode setting). So, I bought a HTC mini USB care charger, and know the problem is solved. Another alternative is buy from Garmin Store, the type they recommend.

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


well if the plug is not making contact it cant recharge. you need to have it repaired and that may well be costly as it will require a new motherboard. Parts are no longer soldered or repaired The motherboard will be repalaced and the basic board is ^$90 the labour 1.5 hrs o 2 hrs minimum at $95 I am sure you will be able to buy a new model for the same cost

Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu.

If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on. Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer
  2. Some of the older Nuvi 200 series will have a reset button on the bottom of the device. It can be found on the bottom of the device on the same sticker that the serial number is printed on.

Dead unit


My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00
