    Just got the Garmin nuvi 200W series for Christmas. I used it for a total of approx. an hour when I started getting a low battery signal. Now when I try to turn it on it shows the name Garmin, searching for maps and then shuts off.

Check to make sure your cigarette lighter is working. I had the same problem and the fuse for my cigatette lighter was blown out. I changed the fuse and it works fine now.

Good luck, hope that helps.

Yes be sure your battery is full charge, go on the GARMIN web site and do an update.

Install the web updater from GARMIN.

If you have a battery low its normal. You did not mentionned into your comments that you had try a charge. I can not assume but i hope you did.

No problem with the battery was reported from GARMIN at this time. Everything is reporting fine by many others users.

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.
Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode.

Can't connect garmin nuvi 660 to PC USB


Your Nuvi should be Off before connecting....

My Nuvi came with a patch cord that connects from Nuvi to laptop
its a usb cord, same usb cord you find for cameras

Your computer should see that a usb cable is connecting
go to.... www.MyGarmin.com and update maps

Garmin Nuvi 660 shut itself off and will not turn back on


Hi Sherry,

The unit should not get warm, unless the battery was fully discharged or maybe shorted out. Most likely a part has failed on the main board.

Please see this link about a Dead Nuvi:

Nuvi 660 : no response on touch screen


Use your fingernails to lightly pry the screen surround away from the screen. Mine did this and the casing was touching the screen. Once I did this, all was well.
Be careful, you are not trying to bend the case, just get it off the screen.

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.
