    Tanx for the reply but the problem still exists with areas/roads that may be 10/20/30 years old....Also its annoying when the unit predicts what you are typing and gets it wrong, meaning i have to retype the there a fix for this problem??

    It is likely that your install map software is "original" (a 2007 or 2008 version). The newest maps are 2010, and can reflect a significant change over those installed especially if you are traveling to newly constructed areas, etc. Map updates are not free (although your first one may be - you'll have to talk to Garmin Customer Support). One of the best deals Garmin offers is "Lifetime Maps". For less than the cost of two map updates, you can purchase a a lifetime subscription for that particular nuvi 200W. Maps are updated and made available for download up to 4 times per year. You are able to download each of them with you subscription. Contact Garmin Customer Support to learn more about the maps - and how to update the firmware (free) on your nuvi 200W, as I'm sure it is overdue. I hope this was helpful!

Go to the Garmin site and buy the 2010 map update for it.
BUT.....If you go on eBay you can but a Garmin 855 for $200 (worth $600) which will have 2010 maps and can speak to it.....such as the next address you want.....(no typing an address ) and your cell phone can be easily bluethoothed through it too.
This might be more convenient and save time?

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w

The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

Need to up date maps

Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

New Maps - Can't update unit

The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.

You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.
