Downloading onto Garmin 200W without USB cable

I have a Garmin 200W and I'm interested in downloading new vehicle icons onto my GPS unit. I have an SD card, but I don't have the USB cable that has to be purchased separately. Is there any way I can just download the content onto my SD card (my computer has a media reader built-in) and then onto the unit?

SOURCE: Nuvi 200w map download and sd card

Just completed 1 hr 15 min call w/ Garmin support (first 45 mins on hold)...

- Install WebUpdater http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp This will update the garmin's firmware.
- Restart the garmin to complete the install of FW
- Make sure that you have room on your garmin to accept the webupdater and new map... delete unused help, voice and vehicle files. I now only have American English on my Garmin, but if I pick up a new language I can go to webupdater and reinstall those languages I dropped
- Restart the map update. I'm in the middle of it now, but so far so good

Did you try to perform a map upgrade to 2008? Turn on the Garmin and from the main menu touch the wrench, then press Map, then look for Map info.

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

Sd/garmin


By connecting your garmin to your computer via USB, the sd card you have loaded in it will turn up as removable storage on your computer. You can treat it like a hardrive.

Without a cable, you can remove the sd card from the garmin and place it in a card reader hooked up to your computer.

I have a nuvi 200, less than 2 yrs old. Has probkems acquiring satelite. Has GPS sw 2.50b and audio 2.20. Also, where and how much is usb adaptor that fits to left side of unit (special plug in to unit


Acquisition of satellites has been addressed in new firmware / system software updates for the Garmin Nuvi 200W.

The usb cable you require is a standard USB to mini-USB cable. MP3 or camera cables will work.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

NEW GARMIN MISSING SOTWARE MODEL NUV1 200W


I did exactly the same thing!. This is how I fixed it.
Use Updater.exe NOT WebUpdate. Download the latest firmware for your unit (the rgn file), then connect your nuvi via usb. Turn it on and hold the power button left, at the same time drag and drop the rgn file onto the Updater,exe. It will start automatically and reload the firmware over the corrupt one.

Here are the files:-

Download to garmin


I had a similar problem downloading some of the files with groups of cars, until I tried downloading the file with all the cars in it. It seemed to go fine, although there are quite a few "cars" I deleted that were rubbish. But you need to load them onto the GPS to see what they are first, then guess which is which from the file names.

Windows XP will not recognize Garmin 200W


I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.

What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.
